How It Works
Key Benefits


The solution seamlessly adds to any existing backup infrastructure. No need to change your existing backup and archival processes. Download the archive you need in just a few clicks.



With StarWind VTL, you don't have to sacrifice compliance with regulatory requirements for data retention and vaulting. The replication process is fully automatic, factoring out manual labor to minimize the risks of human error or malicious activity. Once data is replicated to the cloud, it is also protected from being accidentally or intentionally overwritten.



Virtual Tape is significantly more cost-efficient and scalable than physical LTO. And with Azure Archive Blob Storage support Veeam users save 10 times on archive storage cost by switching from Cool Blob storage.


Azure Data Box Support

If you need to move your data to Azure in bulk, StarWind can easily handle that as well. Our Virtual Tape Library supports Azure Data Box which allows to move stored or in-flight data to Azure rapidly and cost-effectively. Data Box devices enable you to move large amounts of data to Azure when busy networks are just no good. Data is AES-encrypted and the devices are wiped clean after upload.


Tape P2V Conversion

StarWind can transfer all your existing tape data to Azure with minimum manual labor involved and without shipping tapes anywhere. Once physical tapes are converted to virtual tapes, StarWind will migrate them and all future virtual tapes to Azure, and take manual labor out of DR shipping and tape handling for good. The content of the virtualized tapes is accessible instantly. The tape bar codes are also transferred during the conversion, so applications won't have any problems indexing the existing data.

Success Stories

We are satisfied with StarWind. The support is really fantastic. Whenever any issue arises, the response is very prompt, and solution is immediate.

Srinivas Kouda, Company’s Representative

We were able to build 2-node storage clusters based on virtualization in 19 hypermarkets without any problems and with high cost-efficiency.

Vass Sandor, IT Infrastructure Leader

By being able to virtualize our environment with StarWind, we were able to retire some old hardware, get our services highly available, reduce power consumption and heat in our server closet.

David Gardner, Information Systems Manager

StarWind got us off the clustered environment, which was a big help. So, I could regain control of my storage and reclaim and redistribute the space we desperately needed.

Ryan Fulton, Company’s Representative

Price + Simplicity. StarWind vSAN offers great pricing and allows us to get work done without expensive custom hardware. It also makes getting back online quick and easy after an outage or hardware failure.

Aaron Hayes, IT Manager

We chose StarWind Mainly because of the cost compared to other vendors. Simplicity of setup was also a major factor and I like the fact that you don’t need a vendor certified engineer to perform the installation.

John Harris, Windows System Administrator,
