Scale Computing expands Aussie presence with partnership

04 Jan 19

Scale Computing has formed a partnership with Amnesium, a software, hardware and services provider for Australian Federal Government businesses, to target Government Departments looking to improve scalability and simplicity of their IT infrastructures. 

Many of Australia’s Government entities, including the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade and the Department of Human Services use Amnesium’s services when upgrading their business process technologies. 

Amnesium also provides deployable software and hardware solutions that can be prepackaged and configured in a turnkey manner and dropped into these Government environments. 

As Amnesium works with governmental organisations operating across different security zones and ranging from 100s to 1,000s of employees, it is crucial that its IT solutions can scale up and down between environments based on demand. 

“With old enterprise models, you'd need to buy a big scalable solution and hope you got the balance right for the next five years,” says Amnesium director Ian Willis.

“Scale Computing solves this problem by providing an easy mechanism to scale environments up and down based on need. Not only that, but when researching Scale Computing initially, I was impressed with the degree of loyalty and positive reviews from their existing customer base.” 

The installation from Scale Computing combines servers, storage and a hypervisor with backup and disaster recovery capabilities into a single unit. 

Scale Computing's HC3 solution allows Amnesium to offer a highly available and affordable IT environment that addresses many of the scaling issues faced by their large and small government agency customers. 

“Simplicity is the not-so-secret ingredient in HC3 delivering savings over traditional infrastructure solutions and the hyperconverged and edge competition,” says Scale Computing vice president of strategic sales Dan Pierce. 

“Building on our presence in Australia is a true testament to the global need for intelligent edge computing and the desire across all sectors to find alternatives to VMware.”
