Overall Satisfaction with Scale Computing HC3

Scale Computing has various benefits based on the use case. For HC3 it provides for storage, compute and vitualization into a single solution. This allows for simplicity, reduced foot print in the data center, reduced maintenance costs, HVAC, etc. It is a flexible platform right out of the box with minimal setup and configuration time.
  • Eliminates the need for separate storage, compute and networking.
  • Simplistic
  • Fully integrated right out of the box.
  • I do not see anything from a negative standpoint at this time, comprehensive product.
Support in my opinion has been solid, no complaints and issues are handled in a very expedient manner.
Database such as Oracle and SQL, financial applications are great indicators where they receive the performance that they need. Some other good examples are Sharepoint which as we know can grow very large amount of data.
  • Improved OPEX
  • Reduced hardware costs
  • Reduced maintenance costs
To be honest hyper-converged infrastructure products dramatically show improvement from start up. Providing a single pane of glass management is important in any of these HCI products. I like any/all of the HCI products I've worked with thus far.

Do you think Scale Computing Platform delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Did Scale Computing Platform live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Scale Computing Platform go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Scale Computing Platform again?

Yes

Well suited for small to medium environments, where they may have a limited IT staff. The core data center administrators are challenged to maintain 24/7 uptime and to protect the critical data that resides in the databases and file services that make up the data center that may be spread across dozens or hundreds of workloads. The infrastructure to run all of these workloads and store their data can become complex as it grows and administrators may be challenged to manage multiple server, storage, and virtualization technologies to form the infrastructure. There are a vast number of benefits of moving to a solution combining the best of both worlds.
