HC3 Case Study

Filling Home Main Campus

Introduction

This case study of Filling Home Main Campus is based on an October 2018 survey of HC3 customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“Less time when making new servers and added Disaster Recovery.”

Challenges

  • Solved the following operational challenges after deploying HC3:
    • Enabled virtualization without complexity
    • Improved scalability of Infrastructure
    • Improved disaster recovery
    • Solved single vendor support of Infrastructure
  • Purchased their HC3 system for the following reasons:
    • To support business growth expectations or new business initiatives
    • Built-in Disaster Recovery

Use Case

  • Purchased HC3 over the following vendors:
    • Hypervisor – Microsoft Hyper-V
    • HP Servers / SAN
  • Has 2 IT personnel responsible for infrastructure.
  • Runs 25-49 Virtual Machines on HC3.

Results

  • Rated the following HC3 capabilities in terms of how they differentiated from the competition:
    • Single vendor support: Extremely differentiated
    • Scalability: Extremely differentiated
    • Reliability: Extremely differentiated
    • Ease of implementation: Very differentiated
    • Ease of use: Extremely differentiated
  • Sees the following as the biggest benefits of Scale Computing HC3:
    • Ease of use
    • High availability of Virtual Machines
    • Reliability
    • Scalability
    • Single vendor support
  • Decreased the time spent recovering from a hardware failure running a critical workload from over 1 week to less than 10 minutes (99.9% reduction in recovery time) with the high availability built into HC3.
  • Reduced the time their IT staff spends managing infrastructure by 25-49% after deploying HC3.

HC3 relieved us of a lot of worry about our aging hardware and has made availability and redundancy a big part of our infrastructure. The ability to upgrade firmware without losing machine use during the workday is amazing; and the ease of configuring and backing up VMs is beyond anything we ever had before.
