TechValidate Research on Scale Computing HC3

Case Study: Hely & Weber


This case study of Hely & Weber is based on a December 2015 survey of HC3 customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“We are only at the beginning of the shift from our aging infrastructure to the new HC3 platform, but thus far it has been a dream come true. I’ll be able to speak more once the transition is complete, but we are taking this opportunity to rebuilt some poorly designed VMS!”
