Value Proposition

Backup Appliance from StarWind

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.

Why StarWind Backup Appliance Solution?

StarWind Backup Appliance provides the fastest backup and restore in the industry by utilizing the fastest storage medium available to date — NVMe.

However, even if you have the fastest storage powering your production workloads, a slow-performing backup server will become a bottleneck. Backup Appliance Solution from StarWind eliminates the need to actually schedule backup and restore windows by making the backup process lightning-fast. This also greatly simplifies the backup administration process.

Our backup solution employs Intel® NVMe SSDs and Intel® Xeon® CPUs, which allows reaching incredible levels of speed. Everything is enabled to function smoothly, like clockwork, thanks to the inclusion of StarWind SDS. The backup solution from StarWind is also fully compatible with Veeam B&R V10 / V11 and Veeam Instant VM Recovery.

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,
