We've implemented this solution for our customer, who is in the sales sector. It's clustered and mapped to one of the blades. We use the solution for a Hyper-V environment and all of our other virtual machines are deployed inside this solution.
We primarily use the solution for our servers and storage servers.
Our primary use case is as a database for Oracle Databases and their ERP system, for the VMware server to run Veeam, and for some websites. For a not very high workload, less than 10 TB. For our customers' database, it's around 2 TB in these use cases. We are not currently providing services for StoreVirtual, as customers are upgrading to the new model.
The solution is deployed with two nodes and then users have a network ride. The storage solution synchronizes, and it's quite like the StarWind solution. We installed two storage virtual machines and they synchronize with each other. That way, if one goes down, the other one will have the same data.
Most of our clients are actually educational or academic institutions. The solution is primarily required for their data centers, where they already have a SAN. Also, they may want to upgrade or add a specific amount of capacity. There are two types of requirements where StoreVirtual comes in handy. One is if you were to use the software as a service (SAAS), rather than going for an expensive SAN solution. The StoreVirtual software can actually convert our client's server into a storage box. It's like a virtual storage array.
We do the implementation of the solution. Our customers are using it for their backup and file storage.
