Overall Satisfaction with Scale Computing HC3

Scale is the main Server infrastructure at our company. They have two locations, and we have Scale at both. The sites replicate to each other for DR. and it works great!! We decided to move a server from one site to the other, and it was as easy as shutting it down on one side and booting it up at the other.
This has been very reliable. Scale serves as our main infrastructure and DR.
  • Disaster Recovery is excellent.
  • Server provisioning is easy and quick with templates.
  • Server backups are easy.
  • For our purposes, we don't have any cons.
The support is excellent. When you call they answer. They might not be able to assist immediately, but they get back to you quickly. They assist with anything you are trying to do with Scale.
They have their main accounting systems on Scale as well as their business process server. They run LaserFiche and have a large database. To recover this used to be a pain, but now it is easy. We have also tested DR with this server and it has been flawless.
  • Our customer was spending a lot of money with another consulting firm to try to achieve the results we are seeing with Scale. The other vendor was using a different Virtualization solution and was having difficulty with doing DR and backups. The backups required a third party software to work in conjunction with the VR software. With Scale, they have not had to do much support with any vendor, as they don't have issues.
We were trying other Virtualization solutions with a third-party backup software. It was clumsy and hard to use. Scale, however, was easy.
If you are going to virtualize your server infrastructure Scale is an excellent choice. If you only have one server I don't see the need.
