ALSO launches partnership with Scale Computing across Europe.

ALSO is teaming up with Scale Computing, a market-leading provider of integrated storage, server, and virtualisation software solutions. ALSO will integrate Scale's HC3 software with Lenovo servers to expand the use of hyper-converged solutions across Europe.

"Scale's HC3 solution complements our existing product portfolio. By integrating with Lenovo servers, it provides the simplified management and cost reductions that are required in today's IT environment. We are committed to working with leading vendors to deliver quality IT services, and our partnership with Scale Computing is a case in point. We look forward to working with Scale to help our customers address the challenges of traditional virtualisation," said Gustavo Möller-Hergt, CEO of ALSO Holding AG (SIX: ALSN).

"We are constantly looking to work with new innovative partners across EMEA to help expand the reach of hyperconvergence," said Johan Pellicaan, MD & VP EMEA, at Scale Computing. "ALSO has built up a strong marketplace operating across 15 countries (Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Denmark, Poland, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, Switzerland, Austria and Slovenia) and prides itself on offering a full comprehensive range of IT solutions. This is an exciting move and we look forward to working in a strategic partnership to help sell the HC3 appliance across Europe."

Scale Computing offers a single, seamlessly integrated stack, bringing storage, servers and virtualization together into one appliance that is scalable, self-healing and easy to manage. The product will be sold on Lenovo's hardware and will dramatically reduce cost and complexity. The appliance is simple to use and requires no additional licensing fees or training. With the added ability to scale as and when needed, it allows organizations to grow without the need to over provision storage.
