SCALE is Pretty Darn Awsome
Overall Satisfaction with Scale Computing HC3
- Implementation was smooth and their technicians were very knowledgeable
- the training videos were very helpful
- They responded to every issue, question, and situation very promptly.
- Getting from our primary cluster, to our DR cluster through the console is kinda clunky, requires a login.
- Adding different colors for each VM in the console, would be awesome ( or some way to differentiate them).
- Possibly make it so the dashboard layouts are configurable??
- We have had to purchase fewer metal computers , and have been able to add servers quickly ,without waiting for hardware , less delays on implementation
- Because adding VM's is so easy, we may need to update our nodes sooner than expected..( More Cost)
- we are able to configure machines using only the resources needed , saving on disk space and Ram
I have used VMware , and Hyper-V, Both require huge learning curves and large involvement in other hardware to get your environment built and configured .Plus the vendors have so many versions to support, they can be confusing to Maintain. Scale was, from box to rack, to running in just a couple days. So easy even I can do it..!
Using Scale Computing HC3
System Support ,
we are responsible for configuration and support of all ,IT products within our facility,
Servers, desktops and peripherals.
Including , software , and automation
Anyone with any basic computer understanding could run a scale HC3, although someone with higher knowledge can that that platform , and
run with it, , that in turn would allow a site to have a very scalable ,and upgradeable and stable platform, and that is totally piece of mind
- We have decreased our footprint within our facility, saving heating and cooling costs
- we can be more reactionary to needs within our facility( spin up a server quickly, )
- better control of our budget moneys, easier to plan and forcast for our future..
- Gives us room to grow!!
- we plan on moving our servers from the cloud, and placing them in our own !
- Backup and recovery!!
