PROBLEM

AiT was approached by one of its clients to help them solve their issue with lack of redundancy. The client had multiple physical servers governed by Microsoft Hyper-V. Additionally, the infrastructure was End-of-Life (EoL) and had no virtualization in the domain to facilitate maintenance and scalability without experiencing downtime. AiT considered VMware’s software-defined storage solution (SDS) but it proved to be non-user-friendly and unreasonably costly for the client’s scenario. That is why the company decided to go with StarWind.

SOLUTION

StarWind VSAN has become a major component of the hyperconverged architecture and has enabled the company to create a highly available and fault-tolerant Hyper-V cluster. American Care, Inc. has chosen the StarWind solution because of its great performance, simple configuration, and ease of maintenance.  The issue of a mixed VMware/Windows environment was resolved because StarWind allowed the company to replace the existing VMware infrastructure with two hyperconverged Windows servers. The complexity of VMware  administration has also  been leveled out as VSAN simply integrates into existing IT infrastructure and runs on Hyper-V and Windows as a native application. American Care, Inc. no longer worries about its EMR system as HA is constantly maintained ensuring the safety of critical medical data at all times. By creating a hyperconverged cluster with StarWind, the company saved more than $20K without regard to cost savings associated with administration. Once the cluster was configured, everything worked flawlessly. With that in mind, American Care, Inc. plans to use StarWind solutions in future projects.
