HC3 Case Study

Havre De Grace, Maryland

Introduction

This case study of Havre de Grace, Maryland is based on a January 2019 survey of HC3 customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“Scale’s easy to understand dashboard makes monitoring system performance and resources a no-brainer. In addition, creating a new VM is a snap! Our prior HP Hyper-V node / SAN was far more complicated to manage. Creating VM’s took time and caused node performance to decrease while the VM was being provisioned. We love SCALE and look forward to being a customer for many years to come!”
