TechValidate Research on Scale Computing HC3


HC3 Case Study

Global 500 Chemicals Company

Introduction

This case study of a global 500 chemicals company is based on an October 2017 survey of HC3 customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled company asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

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
    • Reduced IT operating costs
  • Purchased their HC3 system for the following reasons:
    • For Infrastructure Refresh (replacing aging hardware)
    • To support higher uptime SLAs for critical workloads
    • To reduce operational costs

Use Case

  • Purchased HC3 over the following vendors:
    • Hypervisor – VMware
    • Hypervisor – Microsoft Hyper-V
  • Has 4-5 IT personnel responsible for infrastructure.
  • Runs Less than 10 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: extremely differentiated
    • Ease of implementation: differentiated
    • Ease of use: differentiated
  • Sees the following as the biggest benefits of Scale Computing HC3:
    • Ease and speed of implementation
    • High availability of Virtual Machines
    • Reliability
    • Scalability
  • Decreased the time spent recovering from a hardware failure running a critical workload not at all with the high availability built into HC3.
