Overall Satisfaction with Scale Computing Platform

The scale helps simplify and enhance our IT infrastructure. With its hyper-converged system, it seamlessly blends our needs together into fewer servers than before. Scale's tools for virtual machine management are incredibly helpful when you need to whip something up in a few seconds, whether that's a completely new machine or a clone of an old one. And with their disaster recovery, if you have a secondary cluster, it can keep backups over on that cluster ready to be spun up at a moment's notice.
  • VM Management.
  • Support
  • Simplicity
  • Physical setup.
  • Minor bugginess.
  • System transparency.
The support we receive from Scale is excellent. Everyone is always nice and works with us through any of our needs until we find a solution. The walkthrough to set up a new cluster or add a new node is very short and to the point, with them being available if needed. The Servers also have Support tunnels that they can use to access your device (when you allow them) to help find solutions.
We have many different virtual machines running different services on our Scale Cluster. We have multiple Windows Servers that run our core infrastructure tools to support all of our users. Just recently, we set up a Parallels VDI with them and added and new node to our previous cluster to increase the VDI capacity.
  • Saved time managing VMs.
  • Allowed us to increase our VMs performance.

For some places with smaller IT staffs, it can help a ton to support and simplify the jobs that need to be done. While it is very helpful and simple for us, much smaller businesses may find it easier to just get a single machine and run an instance of Windows Server on it.
