Scale Computing introduces VMware replacement promotion following Broadcom acquisition

Edge computing and hyperconverged solution provider Scale Computing has announced its VMware Rip & Replace Promotion for partners transitioning their business from VMware.

With the Broadcom acquisition of VMware complete, early this month Broadcom made the move of terminating the VMware Partner Program. Beginning February 5, Broadcom plans to move select VMware partners to its new invitation-only channel program and take approximately 2000 of VMware’s top customers.

Broadcom also announced the move to software licenses, meaning customers will soon see all VMware products sold on subscriptions and offered only in product bundles, potentially raising costs and forcing them to acquire software they do not need.

“Scale Computing is and always has been a channel-first company, and we stand ready to offer partners a superior solution and a transformative experience with SC//Platform, our hyperconverged virtualization platform,” says Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder of Scale Computing.

“Scale Computing’s user-friendly interface eliminates the need for specialized virtualization knowledge. It can be set up in minutes, is self-healing, and features like automated backups, resource allocation, and scaling enable simplified ongoing management — reducing the burden on IT staff and making it ideal for organizations of all sizes to manage a complex virtualization environment. With our exclusive VMware Rip & Replace promotional discount, we’re offering partners and their customers a strategic advantage in navigating the current industry upheaval.”

In a bid to bring customers looking to migrate from VMware to Scale Computing’s platform, the company says users will receive a 25% discount on Scale Computingfree registration pass to the Scale Computing customer and partner event, Platform 2024.

Scale Computing replaces existing infrastructure and enables enterprises to run applications and process data outside centralized data centers, at the edge of their networks,  software and services, as well as free migration tool access, complimentary Scale Computing advanced training certification, and a closest to where data is created and utilized.

“Today’s landscape is changing rapidly and businesses are increasingly looking for alternatives that offer enhanced features, cost-effectiveness, and simplicity rather than the time-consuming management, recurring downtime, and pricey licensing agreements they’ve come to find with VMware,” adds Scale Computing’s Scott Mann, global channel chief and vice president, sales.

“With Scale Computing, customers of all sizes get robust virtualization and hyperconverged infrastructure without breaking the bank. Our predictable and transparent pricing model simplifies budgeting and reduces the risk of unexpected expenses associated with complex licensing structures like those many VMware customers are grappling with. Scale Computing enables customers to reduce total cost of ownership by 40 percent, reduce downtime by up to 90 percent, and manage an entire infrastructure from a single pane of glass. Our Rip & Replace promotion makes it easier than ever to make the switch.”
