AllPro Technologies eliminated downtime and built a fault-tolerant IT infrastructure with StarWind Virtual SAN (VSAN)

Published: August 29, 2019

We tested StarWind for a few months and it worked great in our test environment. We were able to extend the life of our direct-attached storage equipment.

PROBLEM

Before StarWind Virtual SAN (VSAN) deployment, AllPro Technologies had 3 servers with direct-attached storage (DAS) for each and Hyper-V on top. The company had a problem with the slow replication process of twelve virtual machines (VMs) which was subject to constant errors. The replication process plays an important role in providing high data availability. Any failures in replication can disrupt data integrity and fault tolerance of the IT infrastructure in case of emergency. A solution needed to fix the existing problem should be cost-efficient and not break the bank. The high cost of other solutions leveled the possibility of testing them at all.

SOLUTION

AllPro Technologies has chosen StarWind VSAN because it could provide full-fledged shared storage. It eliminates the actual physical shared storage, corresponding infrastructure, associated deployment,
and maintenance activities. The company has increased the reliability of the system without the need to purchase and maintain more hardware. StarWind VSAN also provides asynchronous replication functionality. It puts replication to the background and uses snapshots as the source, thus eliminating the performance and space over-provisioning problems. StarWind VSAN ensured the safety and integrity of the company’s data in case of emergencies at an affordable price. Thus, AllPro Technologies saved the money, built a fault-tolerant IT infrastructure, and eliminated downtime in case of a power outage with StarWind VSAN.
