Overall Satisfaction with StarWind Virtual SAN

We used StarWind Virtual SAN in one of our schools in the IT Production Department. We needed a cost-effective solution for High Availability System and we didn't want to invest a purchase shared storage. StarWind Virtual SAN was the perfect solution to create a cluster using the existing resources and storage capacity.
  • User Friendly Interface
  • Straight forward installation
  • Experienced Team
  • Excellent Support
  • Recommend something other than RAID10 to benefit from the capacity.
  • Get benefit from the available resources.
  • Cost effective.
  • No need to purchase new hardware.
StarWind Virtual SAN Software is user-friendly. The steps to install it and prerequisites are clear and do not need expertise. They have a well trained and experienced support team. The response time in any case is great. The team do follow up any pending issues until cleared. One request would be great if they could recommend something other than RAID10 for HDD in order to gain more storage capacity.
