Overall Satisfaction with Scale Computing Platform

We currently utilize a 3-node system made up of the Intel nucs. It now houses our servers that were once on an 11-year-old Dell server that was on its last leg. The backup solution at that time consisted of writing to a hot-swappable HDD that needed to be swapped out every morning. Moving to Scale Computing, we spun up a backup server with a solution that mirrors the backups on our local storage/NAS and moves them off-site to a cloud backup repository making them immutable and untouchable unless needed. That was the deciding factor in going with Scale Computing was the redundancy of multiple nodes limiting downtime in the event of a hardware failure.
  • Customer/Technical Service is top notch.
  • Communicate with Customers in regards to updates, news, how-to's.
  • They do not overstate the systems capabilities to simply make a sale, 100% honest.
  • Market their user community more as it is a great tool!
The technicians on the phone, the few occurrences I have had to call in know their systems and know my system well enough that any question I've ever had, I've received a quick and thorough response.
I currently run our domain controller, file server, and backup server in our environment. When maintenance is needed on a node or a system update is ready to be installed, simply migrate the servers to a different node and continue with maintenance while production stays going and there are no business interruptions.
  • 0% downtime or loss of revenue due to downtime.
  • The simplicity of testing backups in a live environment in the event of a technical catastrophe.
  • Ease of mind and a lot less stress worrying about a raid system within a standalone server dying in the middle of the night.
Scale Computing is much more simple to manage and set up, and use right out of the box than the competitors. One can be up and running out of the box within an hour.

Yes

Would you buy Scale Computing Platform again?

Yes

It is well suited for use in an environment where downtime isn't an option; production can't stop. Even for our small shop, if something goes wrong or an HDD on a standalone server fails, we need to be up and running within an hour and Scale allows this, within minutes typically having multiple nodes at our disposal to migrate a server to.
