What is Edge Computing?

Edge computing encompasses any physical computing infrastructure intentionally located outside the four walls of the datacenter. Storage and compute resources can be placed where they are needed while hosted on a minimal hardware footprint. Infrastructure at the edge collects, processes, and
reduces vast quantities of data, acting as a high performance bridge from local computing to both private and public clouds.

HC3 Use Cases

Edge computing is eective in nearly any type of industry where remote sites exist.


Whether managing dozens or hundreds of retail locations, retailers need reliable computing across their sites. Apps for point-of- sale, inventory management, security, and more all need maximum uptime and availability.


Shipping vessels, ocean liners, oshore platforms, defense, and remote construction have computing needs that can go beyond the edge of most networks. Mobile systems need to be autonomous, not reliant on stable external network connections.


Any remote oce or branch oce locations at the edge require computing resources that keep productivity online.


Banks and other financial institutions have multiple branch oces requiring secure and reliable computing to execute rapid, business-critical transactions.


Manufacturing and other industrial processes can span across multiple sites with high-tech computing needs for equipment and personnel. Industrial IoT devices like sensors require on-site computing performance.


Any IoT deployment may require edge computing. Direct-to-cloud communication may not be reliable or fast enough to process the vast amounts of collected data or run time-sensitive operations.

Benefits of Edge Computing with HC3 Edge

HC3 is a powerful virtualization platform for running the workloads you require with high performance and eciency.


Scale Computing’s patented HyperCore technology enables machine intelligence to detect and mitigate infrastructure problems in real time. Combined with a clustered back-end architecture, this means applications stay running even as hardware problems arise or updates are applied.


HC3 systems can be easily deployed in minutes with VMs up and running in less than an hour. No specialized training or certification is required - no on-site IT expertise is even required! The platform is designed to be as intuitive as a smartphone but as powerful as a full data center.


Eliminate silos of hardware and software. No VMware or hypervisor license is required and no VSA resource overhead is needed. Self-healing intelligence, local high-availability, remote disaster recovery, and hybrid cloud capabilities are built-in and automated by HyperCore. Additional resources can be mixed and added without downtime. Sites can be managed individually or centrally, with complete flexibility in how sites are grouped, orchestrated, and monitored.


HC3 provides the lowest edge acquisition and deployment cost in the world. A typi- cal customer reduces on-going management costs by 60-80% due to HC3 automation and machine intelligence. Eliminate the cost of multiple silos of infrastructure hardware and software components and all of their required licensing. Reduce or eliminate the need for 4-hour onsite support. A single manage- ment interface can handle from one to thousands of deployments, and the HC3 platform can grow from the smallest edge location to the largest centralized data- center under a single architecture.
