Overall Satisfaction with StarWind Virtual SAN

VSAN is used on one of our virtualization clusters. It is used across the whole organization. We ran 40 VMs on top of two Dell PowerEdge servers.
  • Good job on data redundancy.
  • Good performance both in writes and reads operations.
  • Very low learning curve.
  • Management tools.
  • Ability to run on all mainstream flavours of Linux.
  • Usage of raw partitions instead of file containers.
  • Avoid storage locking and thus eliminate expensive hardware support contract.
  • Reduce power consumption thanks to hyperconverging architecture.
Performance of my VMs is increased thanks to RAM caching.
It's easy to install and manage the product with its graphical console.
Support gives advice on how improve the configuration on startup.
Ease of use, good performance, vendor agnostic.
The perfect scenario is a classic hyperconverged solution. It is less appropriate as a standalone SAN replacement.
