Overall Satisfaction with StarWind HyperConverged Appliance (HCA)

We are currently using StarWind HCA to build out a flexible, distributed storage system. We had a myriad of file, application and database servers that ranged from physical to virtual. StarWind helped us consolidate and make the necessary physical to virtual server moves (P2V) and the entire process was very pleasant. This system also allows us to achieve high availability (HA) across the entire IT infrastructure that we are responsible for which was a major driving decision. This was all completed at an affordable price point for an SMB, which was also a key element for an NPO.
  • High availability.
  • Affordability.
  • Expertise.
  • Consolidated infrastructure.
  • Options for direct hardware purchasing from StarWind.
  • Simplified infrastructure/server management.
  • Lowered reliance on infrastructure personnel.
  • Increased server uptime - high reliability.
At the time of our purchase, we chose StarWind over Scale for the performance and affordability it offered over Scale's HC3 platform. From Sales to Service we had a very comfortable feeling from all teams at StarWind. We liked Scale's offerings, but StarWind for us was a clear choice.
StarWind HCA allows organizations to build a flexible, distributed storage systems and achieve high availability (HA) across their entire IT infrastructure at a price affordable for SMB.
