Business critical data is now just a few clicks or button taps away for users of Scale Computing’s HC3 virtualization platform. TappIn™ by Globalscape® today announced an agreement to join Scale Computing’s Technology Alliance Program. The agreement makes the TappIn remote and secure access solution available to all HC3 users on April 1, 2013.
TappIn gives Scale Computing HC3 customers the ability to easily access and securely share all stored files on the HC3 appliance. Using SSL encryption to safeguard content, TappIn securely enables file sharing from any desktop web browser or mobile device platform, including Apple iPhone ®, Google ® Android™ and Windows ® Phone.
“Companies of all sizes and in every industry recognize that important business transactions can’t always wait until you can get back home or to the office,” says Bill Buie, Globalscape EVP of Sales and Marketing. “TappIn is designed to help businesses maintain workflow and efficiency no matter where you are.”
“Immediate and secure data access from anywhere can give our customers a substantial operational advantage,” said Patrick Conte, EVP and GM of world-wide Field Operations for Scale. “TappIn provides one of the easiest solutions to deploy and manage, which is why we chose them as our first file sync-n-share partner. We believe they will be a great addition to our growing HC3 ecosystem of trusted, reliable application providers which our VARs and customers can leverage for quality, value-added features.”Developed by Scale Computing, HC3 is a hyperconverged solution that combines servers, storage, and virtualization into the industry’s first product that delivers virtualized infrastructure-as-an-appliance. With no virtualization software to license and no external storage to buy, HC3 lowers out of pocket costs by as much as 75 percent and removes all of the complexity of managing a virtualized environment. Additionally, it eases the challenges of working with multiple vendors and enables IT departments to redistribute resources to other areas.
