Scale Computing, Inc. announced its partnership with VAD, CMS Distribution Ltd.

With over 29 years of expertise, CMS is an IT specialist and will be responsible for selling Scale Computing's HC3 hyper-convergence and virtualisation platform, across the UK and Ireland.

Established in 1988, CMS Distribution has a track record in bringing emerging technologies to market by using a range of value added services.

This strategic partnership will enable CMS to incorporate Scale's hyperconverged platform into its set of solutions. CMS offers a range of services working with large multi-national corporations to independent IT companies, including MSPs, high street/online retailers and corporate resellers. As part of this partnership CMS will enable Scale to work with a range of new customers across the UK and Ireland helping to expand its presence.

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. "Mid-size companies look to the channel for advice in finding a solution that fits their requirements and budget. 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."
