TechValidate Research on Scale Computing HC3


HC3 Case Study

Network Performance

Introduction

This case study of Network Performance is based on a July 2020 survey of HC3 customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“We have been able to migrate all of our customers’ variable solutions into one seamless stack without having to manage all the vendors and their hardware. The reduction of management time is wonderful, but the ability to sleep at night due to the incredibly fast roll back process has been the greatest benefit of this entire process.”

Challenges

The business challenges that led the profiled company to evaluate and ultimately select HC3:

  • Solved the following operational challenges after deploying HC3:
    • Enabled virtualization without complexity
    • Reduced time spent managing Infrastructure
    • Improved availability of critical workloads
    • Improved scalability of Infrastructure
    • Improved disaster recovery
  • Purchased their HC3 system for the following reasons:
    • To execute an infrastructure refresh (replacing aging hardware)
    • To support higher uptime SLAs for critical workloads
    • To support business growth expectations or new business initiatives
