INDIANAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Scale Computing, a leader in edge computing, virtualization and hyperconverged solutions, today announced that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Scale Computing for both its 2022 Software-Defined Data Center 50 and 2022 MES Matters – Key Suppliers serving the Midmarket listings.
“We are very proud of our strong reputation for delivering resilience to organizations for their IT operations.

Our inclusion in both CRN’s Software-Defined Data Center 50 and MES Matters lists is a testament to our commitment to providing our partners and customers, from organizations of all sizes, with the most innovative and reliable solutions,” said Jeff Ready, CEO and Co. founder, Scale Computing.
CRN’s annual Software-Defined Data Center 50 list highlights technology vendors who partner with solution providers to provide innovative solutions for data center virtualization. Crafted by a panel of CRN editors, vendors are judged based on the effectiveness and strength of their technology portfolios, including effectiveness, visibility, business and sales impact, and their impact on the channel. Vendor reviews also include feedback collected from industry solution providers. This year’s list highlights vendors in four categories, including Software-Defined Infrastructure Providers, Software-Defined Cloud Providers, Software-Defined Data Center Operators, and Software-Defined Data Center Chip Vendors.
“CRN’s Software-Defined Data Center 50 list recognizes IT vendors transforming the capabilities of the software-defined data center market. From innovative new entrants to industry pillars, their work with top solution providers has proven they can advance scalable, easy-to-manage IT environments with efficient, flexible and cost-effective data center products and services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Broadcasting Company. “Their efforts are raising the bar for the modern data center. We congratulate each winner on their track record in developing the best data center products and services.”
The CRN MES Matters list recognizes vendors who have proven to be forward-thinking technology providers and provide solutions that support the growth and innovation of midsize organizations. MES defines the midmarket as an organization with an annual revenue of $50M-$2B and/or 100-2500 in total supported users/seats. Companies were selected for their go-to-market strategy, how they serve the mid-market and the strength of their mid-market product portfolios.
“The MES Matters list is designed to recognize key vendors that invest in the growth and development of mid-sized organizations that represent only 3% of U.S. companies, according to Harvard Business Review 3/21, but are responsible for 33% of the GDP of the United States. the private sector and employment. Technology is often designed and priced with either the consumer in mind, or the opposite for the heavy enterprise in mind. Midmarket organizations are unique in the way they are structured and, as a result, their technology needs and requirements, from features to pricing, are vastly different from other market segments,” said Adam Dennison, VP Midsize Enterprise Services, The Channel Company. “The vendors and executives featured on this first-ever MES Matters list have shown a consistent commitment to helping midsize organizations succeed and thrive. They should be recognized and commended for their dedication to this important market segment.”
