TechValidate Research on Scale Computing HC3


HC3 Case Study

M&H Plastics

Introduction

This case study of M&H Plastics is based on an April 2018 survey of HC3 customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“We are still quite new to our HC3 implementation, but already we have seen the benefits of the ease and rapid deployment of systems when necessary.”

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)

Use Case

  • Purchased HC3 over the following vendors:
    • Hypervisor – Microsoft Hyper-V
    • HP Servers / SAN
  • Has 4-5 IT personnel responsible for infrastructure.
  • Runs 10-24 Virtual Machines on HC3.

Results

  • Rated the following HC3 capabilities in terms of how they differentiated from the competition:
    • single vendor support: extremely differentiated
    • scalability: extremely differentiated
    • reliability: very differentiated
    • ease of implementation: extremely differentiated
    • ease of use: extremely differentiated
  • Sees the following as the biggest benefits of Scale Computing HC3:
    • Ease and speed of implementation
    • High availability of Virtual Machines
    • Scalability
  • 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 50-74% after deploying HC3.
