With 75% of server workloads being virtualized, virtualization is just getting started. VDI and SMB clouds have just started to emerge and will grow rapidly in the next few years. As IT is moving forward at an ever increasing pace, datacenters are becoming hyper-converged.
StarWind Virtual SAN is a pure software defined storage platform which eliminates the need for expensive dedicated storage hardware. StarWind Virtual SAN achieves this by installing the software on the same hardware as the hypervisor, be it Hyper-V, vSphere, or XenServer. VSAN leverages all benefits of the local storage like high performance and minimal latency. It is achieved by bonding all I/O to the local hypervisor node. This provides multiple benefits compared to a dedicated hardware solution:
Virtual SAN completes the hyper-converged datacenter puzzle:
