Overall Satisfaction with Scale Computing HC3

We use the Scale Computing HC3 virtual environment for our entire organization. It provides us with an efficient and inexpensive solution for us to run our 12 virtual servers and 100Tb+ of storage. It was easy to set up and implement and their assistance along the way was incredible!
  • Performance increase over previous virtual environment
  • Easy setup and configuration
  • Easy migration from previous virtual environment
  • Support from Scale Computing was fantastic.
  • VLAN setup was a bit tricky due to our current LAN environment and limitations on the number of Scale network interface cards.
Support staff explain things well, are very friendly, and respond to issues extremely fast.
  • ROI seems positive but we are still assessing
Scale Computing HC3 runs as well or better than our previous VMWare environment at a much less overall cost.
Scale Computing HC3 is well suited for companies that need a lot of storage and performance, but don't have a large budget, or even for ones that do.

The Scale Computing HC3 Server allowed us to move all of our physical and virtual servers without any problems at all. The HC3 handles our extremely large volume of images and data with great speed and reliability. I have been extremely impressed by the Scale HC3.
During the initial setup we had many questions which were answered within minutes. Not only did I not have to wait long for an answer, but they followed up with a phone call to make sure that everything went smoothly.

Evaluating Scale Computing HC3 and Competitors

Yes - We replaced our HP Host Servers, Infortrend SAN, and VMWare Esxi environment with the Scale Computing HC3. Our equipment was aging and by going with the Scale Computing HC3 Hyperconverged environment we were able to save a lot of money while improving our systems.
  • Implementation support
The most important factor in our decision was probably the pricing in relation to the performance and storage size. It was considerably less expensive than the alternatives.
I would not change a thing in the evaluation and selection process.
