Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualisation, and hyperconverged solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with Mustek, one of the largest assemblers and distributors of personal computers and complementary ICT products in South Africa.
The agreement will enable Mustek to provide Scale Computing’s hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) series, including the HC3, to partners throughout South Africa. Scale Computing is well placed to service Mustek’s needs throughout South Africa with its local presence, and the expertise of Regional Sales Manager MEA at Scale Computing, Jaco Delport.
With all components built-in, including the hypervisor, Scale Computing’s HC3 customers have no need for third-party components or licensing. This all-in-one configuration simplifies management and maintenance, which helps to streamline tasks, saving time and money. This makes the technology ideal for industries that require IT infrastructure with high performance and minimal management, especially during the current uncertain circumstances around COVID-19.
The partnership will enable businesses in South Africa to build affordable, high-performance HCI and edge solutions where existing technologies were previously too complex to deploy and manage.
“We are very excited to be working with Mustek, who have a long and proven reputation as one of the easiest and most professional distributors for South African resellers to do business with,” said Johan Pellicaan, Vice President and Managing Director EMEA at Scale Computing. “Their team has an unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction, and adherence to the highest quality standards and benchmarks, that will bring our HCI technology to market and meet demand in the channel for affordable, deployable solutions for businesses looking to innovate at the edge.”
“We are honoured to introduce Scale Computing as not only one of our latest brands, but as our sole supplier of HCI,” commented Marina Lancaster, Enterprise Product Manager at Mustek. “We expect to see a high volume of demand for HCI and edge solutions from our channel partners, as their customers across various verticals look to digitalise and modernise amidst the current climate.”
