TechValidate Research on Scale Computing HC3


HC3 Case Study

Oklahoma Steel And Wire

Introduction

This case study of Oklahoma Steel and Wire is based on an October 2018 survey of HC3 customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“Virtualization is something we have talked about for a while. After implementing the system, it definitely opened a lot of possibilities that we never thought of before.”

Challenges

  • Solved the following operational challenges after deploying HC3:
    • Enabled virtualization without complexity
    • Reduced time spent managing Infrastructure
    • 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 reduce operational costs

Use Case

  • Purchased HC3 over the following vendors:
    • Hypervisor – VMware
    • Nutanix
  • Has 3 IT personnel responsible for infrastructure.
  • Runs Less than 10 Virtual Machines on HC3.

Results

  • Rated the following HC3 capabilities in terms of how they differentiated from the competition:
    • Scalability: Very differentiated
    • Ease of implementation: Very differentiated
    • Ease of use: Very differentiated
  • Sees the following as the biggest benefits of Scale Computing HC3:
    • Ease of use
    • High availability of Virtual Machines
    • Scalability
  • Decreased the time spent recovering from a hardware failure running a critical workload from 1-8 hours to less than 10 minutes (83-97% 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.
