Overall Satisfaction with StarWind HyperConverged Appliance (HCA)

We would like to have a cheaper solution compared to a storage system but with all the advantages and not the disadvantages. Here only StarWind HyperConverged Appliance (HCA) came into question. On average, we achieved a saving of 20% with comparable storage systems. Also the possibility to build a scalable virtual cluster that guarantees high availability. A high availability cluster was created for a data center. Active Directory Application Server DMS Pros: - cheap - Scalable - top support - the best of StarWind HyperConverged Appliance (HCA) server and storage systems Cons: - Delivery time - Limited hardware packages

Pros

  • Good price policy
  • best support compared to other
  • the product itself

Cons

  • More choice in server components
  • Better set up guide
  • A significant cost saving compared to a pure storage solution
  • The performance has multiplied
The system was implemented so that StarWind HyperConverged Appliance (HCA) can proactively point out problems and hardware defects that are still hidden from our IT, and four eyes are always better than two. It also takes the burden off our IT which is much more efficient than monitoring everything in-house. An SLA agreement is also offered along with on-site support with technicians.
The system has only been in use since May 2022 and to date we have had no failures. This was also the idea behind purchasing such a product so that a redundant system is available in case of failure. The VM's can be moved at any time in real time should a host cause problems.
