HC3 Case Study

Upper Canada Soap & Candle Makers Corporation

Introduction

This case study of Upper Canada Soap & Candle Makers Corporation is based on an October 2017 survey of HC3 customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“We had aging hardware that required replacing – but the apps that lived on them were tied to older OS. To upgrade the OS we had to look at a costly update to the app. There was no ROI on the upgrade – it was a costly sustaining exercise. By virtualizing, we gained improved disaster recovery, and managed to extend the life of the old app on new hardware – allowing us to focus on more strategic business opportunities.”

Challenges

  • Realized the following operational challenges by deploying HC3:
    • Improved disaster recovery
    • space in our computer room (virtualizing all those little service PCs)
  • Purchased their HC3 system for the following reasons:
    • For Infrastructure Refresh (replacing aging hardware)
    • being able to sustain older OS on a newer platform (avoiding a costly application upgrade that had no benefit other than the old hardware needed a refresh)

Use Case

  • Purchased HC3 over the following vendors:
    • Hypervisor – VMware
    • Hypervisor – Microsoft Hyper-V
    • HP Servers / SAN
    • Nutanix
