Overall Satisfaction with StarWind HyperConverged Appliance (HCA)

I manage a
number of different IT environments ranging in the 10-500 staff level





Starwind by
far provided the best bang for the buck. The big players are a stretch
pricewise for the clients in this range and Starwind beats them everytime





Having said
that – Starwind performs just as well performance wise. I opt for all flash
arrays everytime and I see they made the announcement they are only selling all
flash. This is a great move as all flash at the server level is an absolute
game changer. Whole environments run so much smoother and really makes the IT
admins life easier. If we have to deploy on prem servers its all flash or
nothing for us. Having instant failover redundancy helps me sleep easier at
night.





What also
sets Starwind apart is the support. They have techs that are not just call
routers that actually know and can troubleshoot issues 24x7. Most do have
accents which may be an issue for some, but everyone I have worked with in
support has been patient and professional so in my opinion this is not an
issue. Besides at the end of the day the goal is to solve issues which you
definitely will achieve.





There are
several other competitors in this space which I did look at, but Starwind was
just really easy to work with, has resources on every team to get you what you
need (Pre sales, design, management escalation, and tech support) provided the
specs I needed, so I didn’t really need to look much further.





How they
can offer all of this and 24x7 level support and provide the hardware at
extremely affordable costs is beyond me. There is no question for future
purchases Starwind will be my #1 go to.
