Overall Satisfaction with Scale Computing HC3

We use a Scale cluster for our internal data center. We use it for mainly corporate headquarters and have been pleased with its performance. We replaced a retiring Vmware data center setup.
  • Support is great
  • Easy to add a node
  • Snapshotting is simple
  • Recovering a VM from a snapshot is cumbersome.
Always quick to jump on a ticket. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Scale provides a IO/disk latency setting you can tweak to increased performance. This can be for a specific server or multiple.
  • Maintenance has gone way down.
Our EqualLogic solution was getting close to retirement so we needed to migrate anyway. Setup was far easier with Scale than setting up the EqualLogic environment.
Scale is good for a small to medium company's data center. Easy to deploy and maintain. If you want to keep your servers and storage separate, this would not be the best solution.
