Recently, I joined ActualTech Media partner David Davis and our customer, Employer Advantage IT Director Brad Schneider, for an educational webinar on the evolution of data centers and virtualization. We also had the opportunity to discuss how Brad chose Scale Computing HC3 for their IT infrastructure. In the work-from-home world that we now live in, I took the call from the quietest room in my house...the car. Despite the bizarre setting, I learned a lot about why Brad chose HC3 for his IT infrastructure in place of a traditional 3-2-1 setup or other hyperconverged solutions.
During the webinar, Brad discussed the need to upgrade existing, aging IT infrastructure from a “next generation” SAN with 3-2-1 architecture running a hypervisor on three servers to an HCI edge solution from a single vendor in Scale Computing. He also detailed his experience working with the Scale Computing support team and the ease of use of the HC3 solution that was implemented.
David also polled the audience listening in on the progression and evolution of the data center and virtualization in general. When asked what they would do with freed up time resulting from a simplified IT infrastructure, 72 percent of respondents said they would have more time to focus on more strategic projects. This highlights the importance of upgrading infrastructure so your IT teams can focus on projects that matter to the business and clients.
