Overall Satisfaction with StarWind Virtual SAN

StarWind [Virtual SAN] is installed as my vmware vSAN storage. We have all our vms on this storage.

  • Uses local host storage
  • Easy to swap out HDD for SSD as needed
  • Scalability to add new clusters to expand storage.
  • vMotion speeds could be increased.
  • ROI is fantastic over a new physical SAN
  • Less/No hardware to replace every X-years
I was forced to replace my traditional physical SAN when I was unable to get additional service parts. StarWind has no equipment to stress about or maintain.
I had difficulty access the admin portal using various browsers. FireFox seems to be the browser that works 100% with the web portal. Other than that, the admin portal is clear and easy to use.
Support is top-notch and quick to respond. They like the time to answer every one of my questions. They won't close out the request until I am satisifed.
Cost was the ultimate driving factor. I couldn't justify 3+ times the cost for the same feature set I would get with StarWind [Virtual SAN].
I believe StarWind [Virtual SAN] is a perfect fit for mall to med sized storage needs. I have not explored their offerings for much larger storage requirements.
