Overall Satisfaction with StarWind HyperConverged Appliance (HCA)

We moved to StarWind to allow us to simplify our environment, getting away from traditional iSCSI with compute, storage and switches, to a solution that uses less rack space but can do all of the same.

We also use StarWind as a form of redundancy, should one box have a failure, we have another ready and waiting to take over almost instantly thanks to the replication the platform provides.

  • Replication
  • Redundancy
  • Provide storage
  • Product update notifications
  • ROI as we are not running so many pieces of kit
  • Rack space freed up
  • Simplified redundancy
We have had only a single instance of there being a problem, the StarWind support team knew before we did and called us right away.
No unexpected downtime at all, worked perfectly since we put it in. Simulated failures have always resulted in instant recovery to another host.
We moved to StarWind as part of an entire solution. We opted for Supermicro hardware and everything arrived pre installed with our hypervisor of choice. In depth guides came with the kit to tell us what to put where and when it was online, StarWind arranged a call to connect up and complete the migration.

StarWind provides fantastic replication across the nodes. We haven't had any real world failures but in simulated tests, data is always replicated and compute is switched almost immediately.

It also allows us to quickly and confidently perform maintenance on the VMWare environment as we know we can take down a node and no one even notice in the production environment.
