While Scale Computing has had some kinks and growing pains, their price point, support, and ease of use ensure that we are more likely than not to continue using their product for the foreseeable future.

We are totally happy with all aspects of Scale computing. As an organization we highly recommend using Scale Computing. The customer service is great. We don't have any issues with our environment. The overall reliability of the system is fantastic and we have no reason to believe that we will have any problems in the future.

I'm on the fence about renewing the support contract. The reliability of the HC3 makes it difficult to spend the cost of the renewal which is higher than the costs prior to Scale. I'm convinced if we were a larger district that the savings would be tremendous and I wouldn't hesitate to renew. In our specific situation, it may be more feasible to pay per incident.

Since I have had no issues with downtime; easier management of my cluster and the ability to lower the number of devices in my Infrastructure, I will gladly renew my support contract with Scale Computing HC3 and upgrade my equipment with them when it comes time for it.
