Overall Satisfaction with StarWind Virtual SAN

We utilize StarWind at a lot of our sites both remote sites and main data center sites for storage in conjunction with vSphere. StarWind Virtual SAN has really made deploying resilient high performance storage very cost efficient and simple. Performance and ease of deployment are amazing and cost is a a fraction of the other solutions.
  • Easy storage virtualization
  • Simple set up and deployment
  • Very clear and detailed instructions
  • Excellent support
  • Support for multi node “raid”
  • More comprehensive reporting / alerting
  • Increased uptime and reliability
  • Cost savings from licensing
  • Very fast ROI when compared to other similar solutions
Super responsive at all hours of the day. Even the tier 1 support is very very capable and gets the problem resolved. They are very knowledgeable about the product and you can tell they know what they are doing from the way they ask and react to information.
Ease of use, simplicity of set up and deployment, licensing cost and structure, and hardware freedom. When comparing to other big name solutions there is clearly a advantage from a cost and simplicity perspective while not sacrificing performance and reliability.
Small to medium businesses that require resilient storage without breaking the bank. HCI is definitely the way to go and StarWind Virtual SAN makes it attainable for SMB market. 1-3 nodes is perfect and very well suited. If more than three nodes, the storage efficiency goes down quite a bit. Multi node “raid” is still not available as is the case with VMware vSAN.
