Scale Computing, the market leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions, today announced that Scale Computing Platform (SC//Platform) has been qualified on the Lenovo M90Q and the Simply NUC Topaz and is available as a part of the HE100 series of products. The company also announced that SC//Platform is now available from Simply NUC as a pre-integrated enterprise offering through their website. Scale Computing's award-winning SC//Platform allows users to run and manage applications from anywhere with cloud-like simplicity and performance built for edge computing.
"No matter what hardware configuration customers choose, it is the same innovative software and simple user interface powering their infrastructure and managing the heterogeneous fleet of hardware. SC//HyperCore and SC//Fleet Manager make it easier for IT to manage edge infrastructure and for customers to afford," said Jeff Ready, CEO and Co-founder of Scale Computing. "We are excited to partner with Simply NUC; they are a trusted and reliable partner with extensive knowledge of the NUC and other small form factor systems. By combining the power, simplicity and reliability of Scale Computing Platform with Simply NUC's expertise, expansive network and online configuration tools, we are providing organizations with a comprehensive and scalable edge computing solution with the fastest path from pilot to production."
SC//Platform is a powerful, all-in-one platform uniquely designed for running applications at the edge. Lightweight software is packaged for uncontrolled, non-IT environments and managed centrally, making it easy to run applications anywhere they are needed, while also reducing workloads for IT teams. Using patented HyperCore™ technology, the self-healing platform identifies, reduces, and corrects problems in real time. Users achieve results quickly and easily, even when local IT resources are scarce. SC//HyperCore makes ensuring application uptime simple for IT to manage and more affordable for customers.
Also available as part of SC//Platform is Scale Computing Fleet Manager with zero-touch provisioning (ZTP) and Secure Link features. ZTP provides cloud-like simplicity for administrators, allowing them to centrally configure clusters in SC//Fleet Manager prior to nodes arriving on-premises, decreasing the installation time by 90% or more. Secure Link enables cloud-like simplicity for administrators, allowing them to access the HyperCore UI for in-depth cluster management with the click of a button without needing expensive or complex remote access solutions. Edge deployments are just a click away on any browser, on any device, anywhere.
"Scale Computing is the leader in delivering highly performing, highly available, and highly reliable IT infrastructure solutions. SC//Platform is unique in that it provides expandable, fault-tolerant architecture, automated intelligence for self-healing, and remote management with cloud-like orchestration, creating the most highly available environment for edge computing," said Aaron Rowsell, Simply NUC CEO and Founder. "Today's business leaders need efficient application deployment and management, which SC//Platform on Intel® NUC and other small form factor devices delivers — with high performance, in a smaller, easier to manage solution. We're excited to partner with Scale Computing to take Simply NUC's offerings to a new level for distributed enterprise and edge computing."

Gigamon, the leading deep observability company, today announced its participation at VMware Explore, VMware’s flagship multi-cloud event being held Aug. 21-24 in Las Vegas. More than 10,000 attendees are expected to attend the conference and can visit Gigamon at booth #319 to learn how GigaVUE Cloud Suite™, a VMware-certified deep observability pipeline, acquires, optimizes, and distributes traffic and network-derived intelligence from any virtual machine or container across leading cloud platforms to monitoring and security tools.
As the complexity of hybrid cloud infrastructure continues to grow and organizations look to get the most out of their cloud investments, the deep observability market is forecasted to grow at a 52 percent CAGR and reach $1.9B by 2027. This growth is supported by the recentGigamon 2023 Hybrid Cloud Security Survey, in which nearly all respondents agree that today cloud security is dependent on gaining visibility across all data-in-motion (96%) and believe that deep observability is an important element of their cloud security (97%).
By visiting Gigamon at booth #319, attendees will gain access to:

“As network blind spots continue to grow with increasing lateral and container communications, deep observability has emerged as the foundation for today’s effective security posture,” said Bassam Khan, vice president of product and technical marketing at Gigamon. “Working with VMware, we’ve certified our Gigamon Deep Observability Pipeline so mutual customers can gain visibility into all hybrid cloud traffic, regardless whether virtual, container, or multi-cloud, and better leverage their current tooling to secure their hybrid cloud infrastructure.”
Gigamon®offers a deep observability pipeline that harnesses actionable network-level intelligence to amplify the power of observability tools. This powerful combination helps enable IT organizations to assure security and compliance governance, speed root-cause analysis of performance bottlenecks, and lower operational overhead associated with managing hybrid and multi-cloud IT infrastructure. The result: modern enterprises realize the full transformational promise of the cloud. Gigamon serves more than 4,000 customers worldwide, including over 80 percent of Fortune 100 enterprises, 9 of the 10 largest mobile network providers, and hundreds of governments and educational organizations worldwide.

Applied Digital Corporation (Nasdaq: APLD) (“Applied Digital”), a designer, builder, and operator of next-generation digital infrastructure designed for High-Performance Computing (“HPC”) applications, today announced it has formed a strategic partnership with ZEDEDA, the leader in edge orchestration. The strategic partnership will enable Applied Digital to use ZEDEDA’s award-winning management and orchestration software solution, powering Applied Digital’s new integrated on-demand Transmutable AI cloud service offering to address the exploding demand for AI computing resources and infrastructure.
Transmutable AI allows customer workloads to run seamlessly across a commutable infrastructure environment. This new service will augment Applied Digital’s recently launched AI cloud service by leveraging Applied Digital’s bare-metal infrastructure. By integrating ZEDEDA’s management and orchestration service, this offering will enable enterprise customers to purchase and use GPU resources on-demand and at scale across all of Applied Digital’s data centers for both virtualized and bare-metal edge and cloud AI environments.
The service will provide customers with a seamless experience, encapsulating dynamic on-demand and long-term allocation, fully integrated with orchestration, storage, and networking across all instances and applications. Customers will be able to purchase GPU resources by the hour and allocate any Applied Digital resources needed during a project's initial development, enabling effortless scaling as the project progresses into production. The new service is expected to go live during the second half of 2023.
“As our customers leverage AI workloads and HPC applications in increasingly new and innovative ways, we must be able to provide the resources they need where and when they need them,” said Wes Cummins, CEO of Applied Digital. “ZEDEDA’s cloud-native orchestration platform, coupled with our next-generation proprietary data center assets, provides the ideal foundation for us to seamlessly deliver these resources.”
The surge in AI and machine learning-based applications has created new demands from customers to dynamically access the compute resources needed to execute and scale critical AI, machine learning, and HPC workloads.
“We’re excited to partner with Applied Digital,” said Said Ouissal, founder and CEO of ZEDEDA. “We believe the cloud computing paradigm should be extended everywhere, and we have already witnessed this at the far edge of the network. Generative AI is now demanding new learning and inference infrastructure requirements, specifically in power efficient environments, validating that edge computing is truly ubiquitous and transformative”.
ZEDEDA makes edge computing effortless, open, and intrinsically secure — extending the cloud experience to the edge. ZEDEDA reduces the cost of managing and orchestrating distributed edge infrastructure and applications while increasing visibility, security and control.
