TechValidate Research on Scale Computing HC3


Case Study: State & Local Government

Introduction

This case study of a state & local government is based on a June 2015 survey of HC3 customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled organization asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

“Increased availability and decreased deployment time is a huge advantage.”

Challenges

  • Solved the following operational challenges by deploying HC3:
    • Enabled virtualization without complexity
    • Improved disaster recovery
  • Purchased their HC3 system for the following reasons:
    • For Infrastructure Refresh (replacing aging hardware)
    • To support higher uptime SLAs for critical workloads

Use Case

  • Purchased HC3 over the following vendors:
    • Hypervisor – Microsoft Hyper-V
    • Dell Servers / SAN
  • Runs 10-24 Virtual Machines on HC3.
  • 25-49% of their environment is virtualized.

Results

  • Rated the following HC3 capabilities in terms of how differentiated they from the competition:
    • ease of use: very differentiated
    • ease of implementation: very differentiated
    • reliability: very differentiated
    • scalability: extremely differentiated
    • single vendor support: extremely differentiated
  • Sees the following as the biggest benefits of Scale Computing HC3:
    • High availability of Virtual Machines
    • Scalability
  • Decreased the time spent recovering from a hardware failure running a critical workload from 8-24 hours to less than 10 minutes (97-99% reduction in recovery time) with the high availability built into HC3.
  • Reduced the time their IT staff spends managing infrastructure by 10-24% after deploying HC3.
