VMware Alternative - Spiceworks Survey Results Are In!
Many of today’s virtualization solutions are comprised of multiple vendor products—one each for the hypervisor, servers, and storage hardware—making it more complicated and expensive than it needs to be. Configuring those disparate server and storage components in just the right way eats up valuable time. Then you have to install and configure the hypervisor. Then you have to add time to test for compatibility and performance, further delaying deployment. To be successful, you need expertise in all those different platforms, some of which are so complicated, you're expected to be certified in them.
Once you've got it all up and running, it can be hard to scale out when you need more resources, especially if you're not able to add the exact same components. You may need to bring in yet more expertise and conduct yet more testing. And then you have the ongoing cost of licensing renewals, support and maintenance for multiple pieces from multiple vendors, including different licenses for different features. And then you have disaster recovery—an additional piece of the puzzle that can add yet another vendor, requiring more expertise and further complicating matters. There goes more time and more money.
Whether you're considering migrating from your existing virtualization platform or are virtualizing from scratch for the first time, there’s a better way to do it. Whether you are looking at a single location or implementing an edge computing platform across hundreds of sites, Scale Computing’s hyperconverged approach is the shortest path to affordable virtualization that’s easy to deploy, easy to manage, and easy to scale.
Scale Computing engaged Spiceworks Ziff Davis to conduct a survey with current and previous VMware users and this is what we learned.Customers move to Scale Computing from VMware for edge and distributed computing.
"We have standardized on Scale Computing at our remote sites because those clusters are easy to manage and deploy. We have reduced our spend and saved a great deal of time not having to train staff on legacy virtualization, as well as not having to spend time managing multiple vendors."

The Shortest Distance to Virtualization Excellence
Scale Computing’s HC3 virtualization software and appliances are based on patented technologies designed from the ground up to minimize infrastructure complexity and cost. HC3 has helped IT organizations across all industries deploy robust virtualization solutions.
When considering a new IT infrastructure solution, the acquisition cost of the hardware and software to standup the infrastructure is only the starting point for cost analysis. It is important to look into the operational costs of deployment, training, licensing, scale out, downtime, and management. All of these considerations contribute to the total cost of ownership (TCO) of the solution.
