Log-structured Write Cache – forget about post-blackout full syncs

In this blog post, I will make an overview of how Log-structured Write Cache can be configured. Additionally, I will make some power outage tests to check the operation of LWC under the conditions that are pretty close to the real power outages, which, in fact, are the most common reason for the full synchronization triggered on StarWind HA devices. Check the list of possible reasons of full sync to get a better idea about the cases where LWC can help you.

Forget about disasters sabotaging your IT environment thanks to stretched clustering

These days, businesses do not stick to one location anymore. Such trend pushes companies to build stretched clusters, IT infrastructures spanned across several locations. Such approach enables them to implement better disaster recovery strategies and achieve higher performance. To build such environments, you need fast connection and the solution to use resources of all your remote sites just as they were located in one place. Here, StarWind Virtual SAN comes into play – the solution for building high performing active-active replicated shared storage.

Combining Virtual SAN (vSAN) with Microsoft Storage Spaces for greater Performance and better Resiliency

Previously, we went through the Storage Spaces configuration journey. The latest step was the creation of the storage pool and the virtual disk. Today I would like to proceed from that point on and create Highly Available (HA) devices with StarWind Virtual SAN on Storage Spaces as an underlying storage. The main goal of this post is to run the performance tests of StarWind Highly Available (HA) devices located on Storage Spaces created in different ways (Simple and Mirror). StarWind HA devices will be mirrored between two hosts via a 40Gbps synchronization channel.
