Customers at organizations of all sizes, across every vertical, appreciate this innovation, and we're very proud of this recognition from our customers on Gartner Peer Insights."
Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder of Scale Computing
The IT infrastructure platform from Scale Computing is easy to implement and administer, and it allows customers to scale up and down effortlessly as their business grows. Scale Computing HyperCore software keeps vital applications operating even when hardware components or entire appliances fail.
"We've now had Scale Computing implemented with our SCADA environment, and couldn't be happier. It is working wonderfully, and the ease of administration is a blessing. Our live environment has been working for almost 2 years now and we've had no issues. Support has been great for answering questions regarding security and network segmentation. Scale Computing makes things so much easier than the old VM solutions. Thanks again!" -Infrastructure and Operations Administrator in the government sector
"We have had a very positive experience with Scale Computing. We migrated from Hyper-V and didn't experience any real issues in the transition. We used their recommended method of migrating the VMs, Scale Computing Move, which uses Carbonite Migrate. This worked well on all our Windows-based VMs.… Our goal in switching to Scale Computing was to reduce management time and have excellent customer service if ever needed. Scale Computing has fulfilled both these goals." -IT Director, consumer goods industry.
This Customers' Choice award is based on thorough input from 198 customer ratings across several hyper-converged infrastructure software vendors over the last 18 months. The average score for Scale Computing is 4.7 out of 5.
