appIn™ joins HC3 ecosystem as Technology Alliance Partner.

March 4, 2013 -- 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 executive vice president 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 WW 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.

TappIn will be made available to Scale Computing’s Platinum Resellers and customer base of over 1,000 small to medium-sized businesses through Scale Computing’s Technology Alliance Partner website. All users who download the app will receive a 30-day free trial of the TappIn Pro Edition, which provides seamless, mobile access to your data, access to OnTapp secure cloud storage service, direct WebDAV access to content and administrative functionality to support groups of users. Customers can then choose to continue using the Pro Edition or switch to TappIn’s Standard Edition. Special pricing for Scale Computing customers will be announced when the program becomes available on April 1.
