Overall Satisfaction with StarWind Virtual SAN
StarWind VSAN software allows us to build a fairly inexpensive two-node cluster, and provide a fault-tolerant solution to our users. The cluster supports the entire organization, which operates on a 24/7 365 days basis. With a limited budget for IT, we were able to provide a solution utilizing local storage on the cluster nodes instead of an external SAN.
- Less downtime due to scheduled software updates.
- Reliable! We have not had any failures due to the StarWind Virtual SAN software.
Starwind Virtual SAN was more flexible, and allowed us to configure the local storage as required. The Storage Spaces Direct solution had a certain storage hierarchy that needed to be followed for it to function, which would have been more expensive in the end.
Their support team was available to install the demo product and the final installation of the software. Their staff are extremely knowledgeable and were able to assist with issues that seemed to be StarWind software related but turned out to be Windows related. They stay with you until the problem is resolved!
