Dell Store To Sell Storage Products from StarWind Software

Burlington, Mass. - May 6, 2009 - StarWind Software, a global leader in shared storage solutions and iSCSI SAN software, today announced that their iSCSI SAN software is available at the new Dell Download Store. The Dell Download Store, launched in January of this year, is the first online software superstore where small and midsize businesses can instantly purchase software and manage volume software licensing requirements. StarWind Software is similarly focused on the storage needs of SMBs making this a very complementary partnership.

“We're really excited that we were selected to be in the new Dell Download Store,” said Zorian Rotenberg, StarWind president and CEO. He continued, “StarWind Server is the most affordable networked storage solution for SMBs. To have it easily available when Dell customers buy their servers is a great convenience factor. Dell customers who download our software will be able to install it on a server like Dell PowerEdge 2950 and will have the most affordable and truly advanced iSCSI SAN solution available instantly for their server applications. ”

StarWind is dedicated to providing networked storage software to small and midsize companies to improve business reliability and reduce costs. The flagship product, StarWind Server 4.0, is an open iSCSI SAN software that can install on any Dell server running 64-bit or 32-bit Windows and converts it into a reliable and scalable storage area network (SAN). It is designed to work with leading virtualization solutions such as VMware ESX and VMware ESXi, Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V or Citrix XenServer. It also supports high availability cluster environments with Windows Server Clusters for application solutions such as Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Exchange Server. StarWind fully leverages iSCSI technology and all the Microsoft Windows Server 2008 capabilities to provide a robust storage platform for these applications. The combination of a Dell server with high-performance SATA disk drives and StarWind software is an ideal choice for high I/O and transactional applications such as VMware ESX, Microsoft Hyper-V, Microsoft SQL Server or Microsoft Exchange Server.
