Simplicity of implementation and management.

HC3 Customer Testimonial

The HC3 had zero operational impact during a complicated infrastructure migration from a traditional vSphere/Server/SAN to the HC3 platform. Ongoing management of the HC3 is very straight forward which is important for those of us who only spend 5-10% of our time managing infrastructure. So far it has truly been a set and forget system.
