Frank Salmon, CEO and founder, CMS Distribution commented: "We have recognised a dramatic increase in the number of companies who want to deploy a virtualised environment, who do not have the budget for software licenses or the expertise to deal with a complicated infrastructure. As a leading specialist distributor in Europe, we are constantly looking to expand on the solutions we can offer our customers. By adding hyper-convergence to our portfolio, our customers can now benefit from an on-premises solution that provides the agility, speed and scalability they need."
Scale HC3 platform brings storage, servers, virtualisation and management together in a single system. With no virtualisation software to license and no external storage to buy, HC3 products lower out-of-pocket costs and simplify the infrastructure needed to keep applications running. This architecture brings simplicity, HA and scalability together into the data center.
"At Scale we are 100% channel focused and are always looking to work with leading experts to bring our innovative hyperconverged platform to the market. This partnership with CMS Distribution marks a major milestone in our EMEA expansion and comes hot on the heels of our newly announced partner program," said Johan Pellicaan, VP EMEA, Scale.

The HC3 platform provides companies with a cost-effective hyperconverged platform that can deliver simplicity, availability and scalability in one single appliance. Having this platform available through CMS vastly increases our reach to mid-sized and enterprise companies in the UK and Ireland."
