Overall Satisfaction with Scale Computing Platform

We utilize the Scale Computing Platform as our primary on-premises virtual environment. We made the decision to migrate from VMWare due to aging hardware. The decision was mainly predicated on the cost and benefits that Scale's product provides for us compared to the competitors in the space.
  • No hassle and simple UI.
  • Ease of use managing resources.
  • Great support.
  • Lack of management and APIs for remote management.
  • Lack of backup integration with major players. You have to try each virtual server as physical.
  • Lack of detail in resource utilization.
With the few issues we've had, Scale support has been incredibly useful in resolving our issues in a timely manner.
The focus of our decision to migrate to Scale was to move our production SQL and LoB servers. This process was incredibly straightforward with the assistance of Carbonite and Scale support. There was very little downtime, and even our end users commented they noticed improved performance.
  • Saved up to 40% annually on licensing/support costs.
  • Reduced number of hours needed by technician to manage VM and host upgrades.
Scale provides similar features to VMware ESXi. The ease of use and price point were the main drivers for our infrastructure.

This platform is great for small to medium size businesses that require an on-premises presence for their needs. It's incredibly easy to spin up and manage your resources from a single pane. Host upgrades are seamless as well! The lack of visibility into stats, API availability, and GUI console options hurts, but we didn't find it to be a deal breaker in our experience. We've been using our converged solutions for a year now, and we're content with it.
