TechValidate Research on Scale Computing HC3


HC3 Case Study

SIL International

Introduction

This case study of SIL International is based on an October 2017 survey of HC3 customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“We have gone from managing 4 products to one on scale, with better performance and eas of management.”

Challenges

  • Realized the following operational challenges by deploying HC3:
    • Enabled virtualization without complexity
    • Reduced time spent managing Infrastructure
    • Improved availability of critical workloads
    • Improved scalability of Infrastructure
    • Improved disaster recovery
    • Solved single vendor support of Infrastructure
    • Reduced IT operating costs
  • Purchased their HC3 system for the following reasons:
    • For Infrastructure Refresh (replacing aging hardware)
    • For Hypervisor Licensing Renewal
    • To reduce operational costs

Use Case

  • Purchased HC3 over the following vendors:
    • Hypervisor – VMware
    • Dell Servers / SAN
    • NetApp
  • Has 6-10 IT personnel responsible for infrastructure.
  • Runs 50-74 Virtual Machines on HC3.

Results

  • Rated the following HC3 capabilities in terms of how it differentiated them from the competition:
    • Single vendor support: extremely differentiated
    • Scalability: very differentiated
    • Reliability: very differentiated
    • Ease of implementation: extremely differentiated
    • Ease of use: very differentiated
  • Sees the following as the biggest benefits of Scale Computing HC3:
    • Ease of use
    • Ease and speed of implementation
    • High availability of Virtual Machines
    • Reliability
    • Scalability
    • Single vendor support
  • 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 25-49% after deploying HC3.
