Overall Satisfaction with Scale Computing Platform

We were looking for a solution that would allow redundancy of our servers in the case a VM host machine were to go offline in our current server infrastructure. The main thing we use our new Scale Computing Platform HC3 cluster for is the ability of snapshots to reproduce errors in other third-party applications after either an update was applied or a core change was made to the system. We have the knowledge and peace of mind to know if something bad does go on with this update or change; I can always roll back to the snapshot done prior.
  • Snapshots
  • User interface
  • Simplicity
  • Tech support
  • Ability to edit the cluster NICS for each node of the cluster
  • 2FA on users logins for the nodes themselves
Every time I reach out with a question or seek some knowledge, I always get what I'm looking for. If they are not able to help right away or answer my question or concern at that given time, they will reach out to someone who does know, even if that person is a third-party vendor or third-party software support person.
We run our whole company on our Scale Computing Platform cluster. We currently run our Fileserver, SQL Server, Shipping Server, ERP Server, and 2 terminal servers for all our remote users.
  • Slower disk read speeds cause system lock up sometimes and incur costs with third-party vendors for support.

While migrating from our Hyper-V solutions, we ran into some errors while using the Carbonite Migrate software on the target machine, and it kept BSOD each time it was power cycled or rebooted, and support sat on the phone for hours on end with me until the issue was resolved and this was at 11:00 pm EST on the weekend.
