HC3 Case Study

State & Local Government

Introduction

This case study of a state & local government is based on an April 2017 survey of HC3 customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled organization asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

“Was amazing to be able to consolidate our infrastructure and cut down our utility costs. Also, we are loving the ease of recovery, be it a single file or rolling back a whole VM.”

Challenges

  • Realized the following operational challenges by deploying HC3:
    • Reduced time spent managing Infrastructure
    • Improved availability of critical workloads
    • Improved scalability of Infrastructure
    • Improved disaster recovery
  • Purchased their HC3 system for the following reasons:
    • Infrastructure Refresh (replacing aging hardware)
    • Support higher uptime SLAs for critical workloads
    • Support business growth expectations or new business initiatives

Use Case

  • Purchased HC3 over the following vendors:
    • Hypervisor – Microsoft Hyper-V
    • Dell Servers / SAN
    • Simplivity
  • Has 3 IT personnel responsible for infrastructure.
  • Runs 10-24 Virtual Machines on HC3.

Results

  • Rated the following HC3 capabilities in terms of how differentiated they from the competition:
    • Single vendor support: very differentiated
    • Scalability: extremely differentiated
    • Reliability: extremely differentiated
    • Ease of implementation: very differentiated
    • Ease of use: very differentiated
  • Sees the following as the biggest benefits of Scale Computing HC3:
    • Ease of use
    • Ease and speed of implementation
    • High availability of Virtual Machines
    • Reliability
    • 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.
