Scale Computing Storage Solutions
Solutions that grow with you, when you need it.
HC3 is the IT virtualization infrastructure platform that is changing the way IT runs from the ground up. Combining servers, storage, hypervisor, and backup/DR, HC3 is helping IT administrators transform their infrastructures to be more scalable, more highly available, and more affordable. Simplicity is the not-so-secret ingredient in HC3 delivering savings over traditional infrastructure solutions and the hyperconverged competition.
The integration of the storage, compute, and virtualization layers of infrastructure into a single solution architecture. The idea behind hyperconvergence is to eliminate complexity from the modern datacenter. Virtualization has already brought IT a long way in consolidation and management of server workloads, but the underlying infrastructure is still built on traditional hardware component architecture. Let’s set the stage by describing the state of traditional infrastructure design.
The modern distributed enterprise often consists of a central office where IT staff and operations are local and a number or remote or branch sites with minimal or no IT staff. It is common for remote offices to be not just remote but quite far away making travel a complicated issue for internal support staff stationed at a central office to service themselves. Remote and branch offices usually have the same IT needs of the central office, but often on a smaller scale, not justifying the cost of similar infrastructure or any onsite staff.
Disaster Recovery / DRaaS
HC3 replication, snapshot, and cloning technologies combine to provide a full set of backup and recovery capabilities to make sure you data is always protected. Scheduling, retention, recovery, failover, failback, and DR testing are all part of HC3 at no additional cost.
Virtual Desktop (VDI)
Desktop virtualization offers a number of benefits from improved security to easier image management and mobile device support. Traditional infrastructure and VDI solutions have managed to deliver on some of these benefits but not without high cost and complexity making the solution nearly inaccessible for small and midsize IT departments. With HC3 hyperconvergence and virtualization, VDI is not only achievable for any size IT department, but available without complexity or prohibitive cost.
The HC3 virtualization platform brings together servers, storage, virtualization, and disaster recovery into a single, feature rich solution. Here are some of the features that make HC3 the perfect infrastructure solution for any datacenter.
Migration to HC3
HC3 Move Powered by Double-Take allows you to migrate physical, and virtual Windows and Linux-based server workloads with real-time replication from a single, intuitive user console. This unique technology eliminates user and application downtime during migrations. HC3 Move powered by Double-Take migrates your entire server including the system state, applications, file system, permissions, attributes, compression and encryption settings without suspending production operations.
Scale Computing has partnered with Information Builders to provide a business intelligence (BI) and data analytics solution combined with the simplicity of the HC3 hyperconverged architecture. The Scale Analytics Appliance enables companies to get sophisticated reporting and analytics without requiring significant IT support.
