Scale Computing Platform: A Superior VMware Alternative

In virtualization and hyperconverged infrastructure, VMware has long been a dominant player. However, the landscape is changing rapidly, with many organizations seeking alternatives that offer enhanced features, cost-effectiveness, and simplicity. Scale Computing Platform has emerged as a leading choice, providing a superior VMware alternative that addresses the evolving needs of modern businesses. Here, we explore the key reasons why SC//Platform stands out as a powerful VMware competitor.

Simplicity and Ease of Use

One of the most significant advantages of SC//Platform is its simplicity and ease of use. Unlike VMware, which can be complex and require extensive training, Scale Computing offers a user-friendly interface that is accessible to both IT experts and newcomers. This ease of use makes it an ideal choice for organizations of all sizes needing more resources or expertise to manage a complex virtualization environment.

SC//Platform also eliminates the need for specialized virtualization knowledge and can be set up in minutes. The system is designed to be self-healing, making it more resilient to hardware failures and reducing the burden on IT staff. This simplicity extends to ongoing management, with features like automated backups, resource allocation, and scaling.


Cost is a critical factor for businesses of all sizes. VMware is known for its licensing costs, which can be a significant barrier for smaller organizations. In contrast, SC//Platform is a cost-effective alternative that offers robust virtualization and hyperconverged infrastructure without breaking the bank.

SC//Platform Migration Overview

In this video, Scale Computing's Director of Solutions Architects, Mike O'Neil, talks through the many options available for migrating to SC//Platform.


Scale Computing's all-in-one approach means there’s no need to purchase separate licenses for virtualization software, storage, and backup solutions. This consolidation leads to considerable cost savings. Moreover, the predictable and transparent pricing model of Scale Computing simplifies budgeting and reduces the risk of unexpected expenses associated with VMware's complex licensing structure.

Integrated Backup and Disaster Recovery

Data protection and disaster recovery are critical considerations for any business. SC//Platform incorporates integrated backup and disaster recovery solutions as part of its hyperconverged infrastructure. This approach provides a seamless and cost-effective way to safeguard your data and applications.

In contrast, VMware often requires additional third-party backup and recovery solutions, which can add complexity and cost to the virtualization environment. The integrated backup and recovery capabilities of Scale Computing reduce the need for multiple vendors, streamlining the management of data protection.


Businesses need infrastructure solutions that can adapt to their changing needs. SC//Platform excels in this area, offering seamless scalability options that are straightforward to implement. Organizations can easily add nodes to expand their virtualization and storage resources, ensuring they can grow without disruption.

VMware does provide scalability, but the process can be more complex and time-consuming. Additionally, VMware's scaling may require substantial investments in hardware, while Scale Computing's scale-out approach allows organizations to incrementally increase capacity as needed.

High Availability and Resilience

Ensuring high availability and resilience is paramount in today's always-on business environment. SC//Platform is designed with built-in high availability and resilience features. It utilizes a distributed file system and automatic failover capabilities to minimize downtime during hardware failures. Even small organizations with limited IT resources can enjoy enterprise-level reliability.

VMware offers similar high-availability features but often requires additional configurations and investments to achieve the same level of resilience. The simplicity and out-of-the-box high availability of SC//Platform give it an edge.

Support and Customer Satisfaction

Scale Computing's focus on customer satisfaction and support is another area where it shines as a VMware alternative. The company is known for its exceptional customer service, with a dedicated support team readily available to address customer concerns and provide assistance.

In contrast, VMware's support options can be complex and costly, and many customers have reported challenges in obtaining timely and effective support. Scale Computing's commitment to customer satisfaction enhances its attractiveness as a more customer-centric alternative.

While VMware remains a dominant player in the virtualization market, the evolving needs of businesses are driving a shift towards solutions that are easier to manage, more cost-effective, and better aligned with modern business requirements. SC//Platform is well-positioned to meet these needs and is a viable choice for organizations looking to take advantage of the benefits of hyperconverged infrastructure without the complexities and costs associated with VMware.
