Overall Satisfaction with StarWind Virtual SAN

We are a gold mining partnership in Malartic, Québec where we work 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. About 1500 people are on our sites, 900 users have computers and 100 different virtual servers runs to maintain the production area.

We used: 8 different cold storage, 2 SAN and automatic synchronizations for files between 15 minutes and 24 hours (Vsphere replication and SRM).

The problem: Single point of failure, no real-time synchronization with our disaster recovery site so we were unable to make updates and upgrades without any cuts on the production infrastructure.

Now: We can have 2 sites with real-time synchronization and no more single point of failure. Moreover, we can make updates and upgrades at any time without cuts to the production infrastructure.
  • Real-time sync.
  • Take care of a crash without cuts.
  • Opportunity to make updates and upgrades in real-time.
  • Central management on a webpage.
  • We can work on production servers without any cuts.
  • Overall we've seen a positive impact with the implementation.
StarWind is budget-friendly and easy to use.
Well suited for scenarios where you are not at risk for single point failure.

It wouldn't be appropriate for backing up data.
