In a recent collaboration, Eaton and Scale Computing will provide data centre and information technology (IT) professionals with power management solutions that scale along with Scale Computing’s HC3 environment, to meet their growth and expansion needs.
Scale Computing’s HC3 virtualisation platform is a complete “data centre in a box”, offering organisations server, storage and virtualisation integrated into a single appliance. Using industry standard components, the HC3 platform delivers a data centre solution that reduces operational complexity, allows a faster response to business issues and dramatically reduces costs.
Eaton provides scalable and redundant power management supplies to Scale Computing HC3 appliances in up to 8-node clusters. These include:
- Uninterruptible power supply (UPS): Eaton’s Energy Star qualified 5PX (HC1000 family systems) and 9PX (HC2000 and HC4000 families) UPS solutions with extended battery modules provide reliable, versatile and efficient back up power for Scale Computing solutions.
- Rack and cable management: Eaton’s enclosure configuration features customisable and tool-less mounting options to secure critical IT equipment. Additionally, Eaton’s cable management solutions increase airflow and rack organisation.
- Rack power distribution unit (PDU): Eaton’s ePDU G3 Metered Input features a highly accurate view of power usage in its environment, delivered with an advanced LCD pixel display, a hot-swap meter and the ability to operate at high temperatures.
“Customers transitioning to a hyperconverged infrastructure look for simplicity and scalability in identifying the right technology to meet their needs,” says Hervé Tardy, vice president and general manager, Distributed Power Quality Division, Eaton.
“The combination of Scale Computing’s HC3 appliances with Eaton’s solutions will deliver business value for mid-sized businesses by helping them quickly and easily adopt hyperconverged technology with a complete power management solution to organise, protect and manage their investments.”
