Cat-Tec chooses Scale Computing to modernize, simplify IT infrastructure with HCI approach
Cat-Tec, a managed services provider (MSP), has invested in the Scale Computing platform.
The company says it chose Scale Computing to enhance its service offerings, increase net profitability and bring more predictability to its recurring revenue.
“We estimate that the ability to pre-stage hardware has saved us an average of four hours per deployment per client implementation. Meanwhile, using SC//Fleet Manager to troubleshoot issues remotely proactively has dramatically improved our ability to meet our SLAs,” says Genito Isabella, the co-founder and VP of systems integration at Cat-Tec.
Ontario, Canada-based Cat-Tec was looking for a hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solution to help them manage and scale its distributed infrastructure more efficiently and cost-effectively. Cat-Tec previously relied on a mixture of VMware, Nutanix and Hyper-V virtualization technologies to run its infrastructure. However, Cat-Tec says the cost and complexity of these solutions led them to switch to Scale Computing.
The company says that with Scale Computing’s SC//Fleet Manager tool, IT leaders can use real-time information about storage and computing resources across their cluster fleet to identify any potential issues from one central location.
Cat-Tec chose Scale Computing as its hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solution due to its simplified modular architecture and integrated backup system for resilience in disruptions.
“This means we can now devote more time helping customers solve real problems rather than just constantly having to put out fires,” adds Isabella. “It’s not an exaggeration to say that Scale Computing has completely transformed our business.”
Scale Computing was in the news earlier this month for expanding its edge video surveillance solutions to include cloud video storage in partnership with Wasabi Surveillance Cloud and Intel NUC Enterprise Edge Compute built with Scale Computing.
The company claims that its user-friendly appliance solution provides limitless storage and smoothly integrates across all platforms, from the edge to the cloud.
