Value Proposition

StarWind Backup Appliance (BA)

For organizations looking to free themselves from the old concepts of RTPO and achieve unprecedented backup and recovery speed, StarWind introduces Backup Appliance. By utilizing the speed of an NVMe storage backend, StarWind shrinks the backups window to fit any schedule without overlapping or harming other processes and removes the need to calculate the backup window schedule.

Thus, since backup and restore are performed with such incredible speed, you can fit whatever data backup requirements you need. StarWind BA is a standalone backup server compatible with any data backup software and other IT infrastructure components you might have. We took the elements traditionally associated with enhancing the performance of production environments and created a revolutionary, holistic backup solution.

FASTEST BACKUP AND RESTORE IN THE INDUSTRY

Why Backup Appliance from StarWind?

Typical backup systems require a significant amount of time to perform a backup, and even more to restore the data. StarWind Backup Appliance (BA) provides the fastest backup and restore in the industry by utilizing the fastest storage medium — NVMe. This means that your backups are literally, always at hand. RTO (Recovery Time Objective) becomes extremely low while fitting more backups into the lower backup window allows meeting the highest RPO (Recovery Point Objective) requirements.

Even if you have the fastest storage powering your production workloads, a slow-performing backup server usually becomes a bottleneck. For example, the backup window may take up a great deal of time while overlapping with the production processes. Also, it may be inconvenient to plan different backup schedules that do not pause your production. Backup Appliance from StarWind eliminates the need to actually schedule backup windows, as you did before, by making the backup process lightning-fast. This makes the entire IT infrastructure administration much simpler.

You can integrate StarWind BA into your already existing IT infrastructure, regardless of its composition, to make your whole IT environment — production and backup side — entirely foolproof. Additionally, if desired, you can couple our new all-NVMe backup server with StarWind HyperConverged Appliance to take your data availability to an absolutely new level.

Success Stories

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

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

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,
Department of Physics, University of Oxford

Because of recommendations of older colleagues, with StarWind, we got a reliable storage with no additional hardware. There was a need to increase IT infrastructure performance and we saw StarWind as the most cost-effective solution.
