Overall Satisfaction with StarWind Virtual SAN

StarWind VSAN Solution is currently being used in one of our data centers located at Limassol, Cyprus. The solution includes utilization of storage out of physical servers in order to implement it to our VMware Vcenter environment, creating datastores/LUNS that we provide as a service to customers in order to create workloads.
  • Read and write operation speed on VMs is incredible.
  • Really easy to manage web interface.
  • Integration with VMware was done pretty easily.
  • Monitoring of workloads on mobile.
  • Cost saving, since we don't need an additional appliance.
  • It has competitive price in the market.
  • It is value for money in my opinion.
The support was always pretty responsive, had a strong knowledge not only of their own product but of SAN, RAID, and physical storage in general. Plus, they are always happy to help us when we are in need of support.
In terms of total cost, StarWind wins!
Starwind VSAN, in my opinion, is best suited in scenarios of virtual environments like the one I described, in my last summary. It is very good at utilizing physical hardware and storage and being applied as a virtual datastore solution, plus the speed of reading and writing operations is pretty amazing.
