Channel Futures MSP Summit, Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization and hyperconverged solutions, today announced a security focused feature for Scale Computing Fleet Manager: Secure Link. This new feature provides cloud-like simplicity for administrators, giving them secure remote management access for complete control of their edge deployments with the click of a button from any browser and device, without the need for expensive or complex remote access solutions. Edge deployments are now just a secure click away on any browser, on any device, anywhere. For MSPs and IT teams, Secure Link and SC//Fleet Manager remove the burden of maintaining VPNs at each site, allowing for fast issue resolution with one-click access to any cluster from a single monitoring center.
"Currently, IT staff need to be on the same network as a cluster in order to access the HyperCore UI. When the IT admin is offsite, like in my MSP business where we manage multiple customer sites, we must find a way to gain access to the 'remote network' in order to perform SC//HyperCore management. The task of remote monitoring has been simplified with SC//Fleet Manager, but in the case of any changes being required, this local, secure access is a must," said Joe Kletch of Mulehill Networks. "Secure Link solves this problem by allowing IT teams and MSPs to quickly, easily, and securely gain complete management access to all of their edge deployments. Combined with ZTP, we can now remotely initialize and configure clusters with zero access to the cluster, or even the network the cluster is on. This is going to save me time and money."
Simplicity is engineered into Scale Computing Fleet Manager, making it easier than ever to securely monitor and manage workloads and infrastructure across an entire edge fleet of clusters running Scale Computing HyperCore. Instead of managing individual deployments, SC//Fleet Manager allows users to see and manage their entire fleet at once from an intuitive cloud-based console. Users can easily monitor connectivity and cluster health . Any problems across the fleet are highlighted automatically, and if there is an issue, IT administrators can drill down into a specific cluster to further diagnose and fix the problem.
"Unlike competitive solutions where accessing edge deployments requires on-cluster or VPN network setup, or traditional VPN access to local management software, SC//Fleet Manager's Secure Link is ready for use out-of-the-box. This tight integration also eliminates the risk associated with manual setup and maintenance of traditional remote management tools," explained Scott Loughmiller, Chief Product Officer and Co-founder, Scale Computing. "Edge computing deployments no longer require costly and cumbersome VPNs, which present another attack surface, when they manage their workloads and infrastructure with SC//Fleet Manager."

Elliptic Labs, a global AI software company and the world leader in AI Virtual Smart Sensors™ currently deployed in over 500 million devices today, has announced the launch of its AI Virtual Proximity Sensor™ INNER BEAUTY® with a new smartphone customer, Vivo, a global top-5 smartphone company. The Vivo Y78+, a mid-end high-volume smartphone, is being launched for the China market. Elliptic Labs’ partner Qualcomm is driving the Vivo Y78+ with its Snapdragon 695 chipset. The contract for this launch was previously announced by Elliptic Labs.
“Launching with a new smartphone company, Vivo, a top-5 global smartphone maker, shows that our AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform™ continues to drive innovation for the smartphone market,” said Laila Danielsen, CEO of Elliptic Labs. “We are driving more adoption of our AI Virtual Smart Sensors with the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world, carrying on our push to make devices greener, smarter, and more human-friendly. ”
Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor detects when a user holds their phone up to their ear during a call, allowing the smartphone to turn off its display and disable its screen’s touch functionality. This keeps the user’s ear or cheek from triggering unwanted actions during the call, such as hanging up or dialing numbers. Turning off the screen also helps conserve battery life.
Proximity detection is a core capability that is used in all smartphones, but Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor is a unique, software-only solution that delivers robust proximity detection without the need for a dedicated hardware sensor. By replacing hardware sensors with software sensors, the AI Virtual Proximity Sensor reduces device cost and eliminates sourcing risk.
About Elliptic Labs
Elliptic Labs is a global enterprise targeting the smartphone, laptop, IoT, and automotive markets. Founded in 2006 as a research spin-off from Norway’s Oslo University, the company’s patented software uses AI, ultrasound and sensor fusion to deliver intuitive 3D gesture, proximity-, presence-, breathing- and heartbeat-detection experiences. Its scalable AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform™ creates software-only sensors that are sustainable, human-friendly and already deployed in hundreds of millions of devices around the world. Elliptic Labs is the only software company that has delivered detection capabilities using AI software, ultrasound, and sensor fusion deployed at scale.

StorMagic®, solving the world’s edge data problems, today announced continued momentum with manufacturing end users with the addition of two new Germany-based customers. StorMagic SvSAN is a simple, two-node virtual SAN that manages data and its associated applications, to ensure customers’ main objective – productivity.
“Manufacturers require IT systems that deliver built-in redundancy and high availability to ensure continuous operations and, ultimately, productivity to keep their businesses running,” said Bruce Kornfeld, chief marketing and product officer, StorMagic. “SvSAN eliminates single points of failure and downtime to keep factories and plants operational and efficient.”
StorMagic ensures production uptime through high availability, reliability and performance, at a low cost, and is helping two German manufacturers in this endeavor.
WST previously used DataCore SANsymphony to store application data from various databases, file services, and telecommunication systems. Mounting costs and inadequate performance as the volume of data increased led them to review all-flash disk systems at two of their production facilities. SvSAN was selected due to its ability to support all the applications required at these sites with ease of use, minimal hardware requirements and high uptime.
“WST was able to significantly reduce costs and add 100 percent uptime between our two datacenters by moving to StorMagic SvSAN,” said Alexandra Körner, head of IT, WST Präzisionstechnik GmbH. “We’ve also been able to eliminate vendor lock-in thanks to SvSAN’s compatibility with all storage types, hardware and hypervisors. Our future costs have been significantly reduced without sacrificing performance, and budgets are now much more predictable, and easier to plan.”
Witholz GmbH previously used a physical SAN for data processing and management in its two datacenters. The company urgently needed a solution that provided high availability to store application data from its entire IT environment. Witholz found that StorMagic SvSAN was the ideal solution as it was very easy to install and use, and offered the highest performance for the price.
“StorMagic SvSAN is a ‘set and forget’ solution that delivers the best price for performance point in today’s market, and is an ideal fit for every small to medium-sized enterprise," said Matthias Böhler, CEO, Witholz GmbH. “SvSAN allowed us to maximize our budget and achieve 100 percent uptime, which lets us sleep more soundly at night.”
StorMagic is solving the world’s edge data problems. We help organizations store, protect, and use their data at and from the edge. StorMagic’s Forever Data solutions ensure data is always protected and available, no matter the type or location, to provide value anytime, anywhere. StorMagic’s storage, surveillance and security products are flexible, robust, easy to use and cost-effective, without sacrificing enterprise-class features, for organizations with one to thousands of sites.
