Customer Success Stories

By language:
- Paul Harmon, Server & Network Administrator
"The simplicity, reliability and performance are unmatched, especially when you consider that the pricing comes in less than the competitors. After one year in production service, we'd easily and readily recommend StarWind's software to any server admin looking for a robust and cost-effective SAN, without the single point of failure or proprietary operating system of a hardware solution."

- Michael J. Gage, Network Operations Manager, LocalTel Communications
"We strongly recommend StarWind solution. Since our initial deployment our storage needs have grown and the product has successfully grown with us. We have increased our storage exponentially without any complications. We can now perform maintenance on our storage cluster without creating an outage."

- Sander van’t Hullenaar, IT Director,
"We have tried different storage system solutions to obtain data synchronization and redundancy, but most of them didn't provide the real-time synching that we required. Then we tested StarWind, and even tried to "sabotage" it but it just kept working! StarWind meets all our needs and has taken a prominent place in our IT environment."

- Aitor Ibarra, Director, Vmhotel
"Because of my investment in StarWind’s fantastic HA solution and Microsoft Hyper-V clustering & Live Migration, it was possible to physically move my servers from one datacenter to another without any interruption of service and without risking data."

- Нил Коффи, системный администратор VoicePulse
"Благодаря StarWind iSCSI SAN мы убедились, что использование, обновление и обслуживание высокодоступного сервиса может быть действительно легким. Мы уверены в надежности нашей защиты от непредвиденных сбоев и в готовности службы техподдержки StarWind всегда прийти на помощь в нужный момент"

- Роб Кобиске, ИТ-администратор университета Стивенс Пойнт

- Rob Kobiske, Network & Server Administrator at UWSP

- Daniel Covell, IT Consultant of Anchor Brewing Company,
Founder and President of The Covell Group LLC.

- Gennadyi Ruban, System Engineer, Takt LLC
"The product demonstrated outstanding results... Now, we can definitely say that StarWind Virtual SAN is the investment that pays back."

- Джейсон Лю, системный администратор Института Семел
"...мы остановились на решении StarWind iSCSI SAN. ...выбор оказался правильным: этот продукт действительно имел конкурентную цену и был простым в использовании, а квалифицированные инженеры технической поддержки помогли реализовать наш проект в кратчайшие сроки."

- Вячеслав Потекин, ИТ-директор, группа компаний “Медведь Холдинг”
"Одним из основных преимуществ ПО StarWind cтала возможность использовать уже имеющееся у нас оборудование. Мы смогли установить это программное обеспечение непосредственно на Hyper-V сервер, и тем самым, сэкономили на покупке дополнительных серверов и лицензий ОС Windows. Уже в первые минуты работы StarWind продемонстрировал свою высокую эффективность."

- Peter Tkatchenko, Director of Information Technology Department
"With the StarWind solution, Reseaunance obtained reliable SAN with advanced features. The StarWind storage solution offered security for our data. It can be scaled according to the company’s storage needs with promised zero downtime and fast disaster recovery."
"...Data deduplication technology was exactly the thing we required, because it permits us to store a large amount of data without extending our existing storage."

- Vyatcheslav Potekin, IT Director, Medved Holding Group
"First minutes of running this software revealed one of its major benefits: it installed not inside virtual machine but on top of Hyper-V itself in “parent partition” where primary Windows operating environment executes. This meant we didn’t need to buy additional servers and extra Windows licenses and could create our shared storage using the existing resources."

- Robert Marshall, IT Systems Manager, Prior Pursglove College
"The whole process from evaluating the product and discussions with StarWind technical staff to final purchase was straightforward, helpful and in no way did I ever feel forced to purchasing the product. This is the first class product and company."

"StarWind Virtual SAN software coupled with Mellanox Ethernet-based high speed end-toend infrastructure accelerates storage solution networking connectivity and lowers overall power consumption."

- Chris Sprague, Network Specialist, Poquoson City Public Schools
"With the help of StarWind, we created a solution that went from the one basket one handle ESXi VM solution (one VM Host, one SAN), to a fully redundant Windows Hyper-V Cluster with fully redundant StarWind iSCSI SAN's at a cost less than a single hardware based SAN device that would have fit our storage needs. They designed servers that met the needs for our current and future environment without the waste of one size fits all providers like Dell and HP."

- Andy Kasdorf, Network Infrastructure Engineer, CMS Internet
"There were four reasons that we chose StarWind iSCSI SAN software instead of EMC Clariion iSCSI SAN: best price we found, flexibility of using software to build our own SAN, ability to separate network from storage, and superb level of support that we got."

- Galina Bondarenko, President, Proxen
"Combining StarWind and Veeam is one of the best IT solutions that we have seen in years. We got affordable networked storage, increased application and data availability, protected our VMware infrastructure and were able to do all this for less than 25% of what we initially budgeted. No other solutions came even close to the product quality and cost which we got with StarWind and Veeam."

- David Weisbrod, Founder, Macro Systems, Inc.
