Overall Satisfaction with Scale Computing HC3

Scale H3 is being used as the virtualization solution for one of our companies that, due to technical requirements, is needing a local data center in addition to the global one. As Scale H3 is one of the easiest and lower-cost hyper-convergence systems on the market, it fits perfectly to our purposes.
  • Easy to use.
  • Low-cost hyper-convergence solution.
  • Scalability.
  • Quick installation and start-up.
  • Inflexible backup.
  • Not integrable with Veeam Backup.
  • Poor management tools.
  • Not a reliable performance with large systems.
Scale support has been always quick and clear when required. However, product information is scarce, so sometimes it is difficult to improve the system, requiring continuous contact with Scale support in order to solve each issue.
We actually don't manage our business-critical applications from Scale, but we have tested some design-tool servers running into Scale H3C with relative success. If we speak about critical but not high-performance applications, Scale H3C is a good solution, as it's highly scalable.
  • Quick startup for several systems.
  • Positive ROI because of its low-cost price compared with other hyper-convergence systems.
Scale HC3 is suited for a small datacenter not requiring large systems with high performance, because of its low-cost price and its ease of use. On the other hand, if you're looking for an optimum system for a high-performance environment, you should go to a more reliable hyper-convergence or traditional virtualization system.
