Here are some excerpts of what our customers say about StarWind on IT Central Station:
The hardware footprint is great. We've got two 2U servers which replaced four 2U servers. Granted, they were about three years old at that point, but we actually increased our processing capacity [thanks to StarWind HCA] by about 50 percent while keeping our storage capacity about the same. We've actually been able to downgrade to a half rack from a full rack because we've gotten rid of some of our network equipment and some of our additional storage arrays.
- Owner at Data Barn
The most valuable feature is the reliable storage replication, which enables me to create a robust infrastructure to run our business. StarWind Virtual SAN allowed us to eliminate the need for any physical SANs. We also got rid of the expensive fiber-channel equipment. Now, we just have two servers that form the StarWind nodes and that's it! All of our storage, networking that includes 1GB and 10GB Ethernet, and compute power are all housed in the StarWind Virtual SAN solution. It's simple and very reliable.
- Head of Information Technology at Baker Tilly BVI & Baker Tilly Cayman
Highly available storage is the most valuable feature. The entire rollout is hyper-converged and requires no extra storage further than the hosts in which Hyper-V is running. Another feature that has been great is the support from StarWind in general. We have their proactive support package on the main cluster that employs StarWind Virtual SAN.
