Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"StarWind vSAN is a great solution to create a redundant two-node-only Hyper-V cluster, both for domain or workgroup scenarios.""The vSAN provides full redundancy for storage while reclaiming some rack space.""Speed and high availability have been the most valuable for us.""StarWind vSAN has allowed us to leverage our server infrastructure more completely without the need to add more hardware.""Updates to server hardware are now painless and done during working hours with zero stress. We had a RAID failure a few months back, and nobody in the building even noticed and there was no after hours time used for repair.""PowerShell library is pretty good feature as I created with APC PowerChute a script to put volumes on maintenance mode then turning off the StarWind nodes together with the VM and Hosts when UPS reaches 15 percent, this way after a blackout or electrical problems when turning servers on again, there is no issues for syncing or data loss due to energy interrupts.""The ability for us to manage all of our nodes from the same console makes systems administration very easy.""High Availability is the best feature of product."

"The nice thing about it is that it truly integrates with the cloud, so I can move my volumes bi-directionally in and out of the cloud.""It is easier to manage compared to the other vendors.""The solution is useful for taking storage snapshots, has high performance, and the CASL architecture is good for optimizing workloads.""Nimble DHCI is really user friendly and not complex""Very good in-line compression.""I love InfoSite. That gets you a lot of good detailed information."

"The solution is stable and everything is taken care of through the Huawei support center. They ensure everything is running smoothly. It's been very good.""The pricing of the solution is excellent. It's one of the main reasons a customer chooses Huawei. It's much, much better than VMware."

Cons
"I think the setup could be streamlined a bit.""Perhaps more reporting features on the utilization, usage, and performance of the configured high-availability images and underlying physical disks would be helpful.""I found that certain browsers are not fully compatible with the administration web access portal.""If there was one feature I would like to see it would be a built-in subsystem for managing UPS backups shutdown procedures providing a way to initiate VM shutdown on all host servers, shut down the host servers, then put the fault-tolerant mirroring in standby, and finally shut down the StarWind SANs.""When StarWind Virtual SAN for vSphere nodes go offline unexpectedly, the nodes have to re-sync disks fully which takes a long time. We had a power failure and when both nodes came online, VMware vSphere didn't see StarWind disks before I manually re-scanned them form ESXi administration console even though it should happen automatically""The main thing I would like to see improved is the level of documentation.""If there was one thing we could request, it would be the ability to shrink volumes. For example, we want to be able to decrease in the size of the volume.""Management of VSAN itself could be improved. A Web UI for management would be great rather than an application installation. StarWind is testing a command center virtual appliance that I have installed in my environment."

"The only issue I'm really running into is we have a SQL server that we're having a lot of high IO latency on one of my drives and it's my data drive from my SQL server. It's not really giving me any good information as to where that latency is coming from, so that's what I'm trying to track down and troubleshoot.""The solution could improve by providing better file-level restoration and DVX system options.""Sometimes the technical support would get back to us in two hours, but other times it would take them two or even three days to respond.""Lacking integration to the cloud.""Their documentation needs to be simpler to read yet more detailed so it's easy to compare models and easier for clients to pick.""The initial setup is a little bit complicated."

"t would be helpful if the solution was able to collaborate or integrate with other well-known monitoring tools. Right now, you have to work hard to get it configured. It would be a good selling point for them if they could open up their solution to more integrations.""Technical support needs improvement. There's a lot of language barriers."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The setup cost, pricing, and licensing are very straightforward. They are exactly what you expect.""This solution has competitive prices and the implementation is very easy.""StarWind is a low-cost, full-featured alternative to the traditional SAN environment, and their support will guide you every step of the setup.""This is the best priced solution for an SMB.""We found that the pricing was perfect; simple and clear.""This solution is very accessible and the pro-level for support is well worth the cost.""There are two tiers of support and in my opinion, support is worth the cost.""Licensing is easy and the whole package is cost-effective."

Overview

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.
