What do you think of StarWind Storage Appliance?

What is our primary use case?

We use this product as a backup and storage solution. We have the need to back up mission critical data on a regular basis and this solution provides that service without any issues.

How has it helped my organization?

We are able to easily back up our data and send it to an offsite location. Before this solution, we had an unreliable and very expensive solution. StarWind changed that for us.

What is most valuable?

It is very easy to use and very cost effective. I've been able to administer this system with little training needed.

What needs improvement?

An improvement would be if they reached out to education customers with other available products.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

What is StarWind Storage Appliance?

For SMB and Enterprises who are looking for high performance primary storage for server virtualization, VDI, database and Big Data scenarios, or inexpensive secondary backup tier, our solution is StarWind Storage Appliance. It unifies commodity servers, disks and flash, and associated software into an easily scalable storage platform.

Additionally, the appliance features an optional gateway to Azure public cloud, which helps to implement an effective Disaster Recovery plan or meet regulatory requirements. StarWind SA scales up by adding individual disks and flash modules, or JBODs, while adding ready controller nodes allows scaling out. 

StarWind SA targets those, who need high-performance primary storage or secondary storage for backup. In case there is a whole virtualization infrastructure to build from scratch, StarWind HCA will come in handy. Otherwise, if all the required hardware is present, StarWind Virtual SAN will be enough to build a high-performance virtualization setup.
