A well-proven, automated management tool in all dynamic provisioning, auto-tiering, and parallel I/O
It is a well-proven, automated management tool in all dynamic provisioning, auto-tiering, great performance, parallel I/O, cache speed mechanism, etc.
It also provides a high degree of mobility, as the virtual SAN can be moved relatively painlessly between on-site devices and the cloud.
Ten gigabit Ethernet compatibility, support, ease of use, and management are some positive features.
Integration with Microsoft clustering has been perfect, allowing us to leverage our investment in MS server licensing to the fullest.
I would like to see an extensive set of cmdlets that could allow for easier automation as well as status management.

|Overview||DataCore™ SANsymphony™ enterprise-class Software-defined Storage (SDS) platform provides a high-performance, highly available and agile storage infrastructure with the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).|
For SMB, ROBO, Cloud and Hosting providers, who look to cut down virtualization expenses, our solution is StarWind VSAN. It is software that eliminates any need in physical shared storage by basically “mirroring” internal hard disks and flash between hypervisor servers. There is less hardware to buy in general, consequently less money is spent on purchase and maintenance. The existing hardware is used with maximum efficiency, so there is no money wasted at all.
StarWind Virtual SAN targets those who already have servers, or are bound to a particular vendor list to buy from. In case there is a new virtualization infrastructure to be built from scratch, StarWind offers a much better way – StarWind HyperConverged Appliance. It is a turnkey solution complete with hardware and software, powered by StarWind Virtual SAN. Those who need to build and maintain virtualization infrastructure at little to no expense, may be interested in StarWind Virtual SAN Free.
