Andromeda Technology gets failover and performance-optimized storage with StarWind Virtual SAN (VSAN)

Published: July 3, 2019

PROBLEM

Before StarWind Virtual SAN (VSAN) deployment, the client companies of Andromeda Technology had a SAN infrastructure with Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware ESXi. Maintaining the SAN infrastructure with numerous cables, host bus adapters (HBAs), and switches was a very expensive and complicated process. That is why some client companies were forced to give up having a failover cluster. In that context, achieving high availability (HA) of applications and services for SMBs seemed to be an intractable issue. But not for StarWind.

SOLUTION

Andromeda Technology has chosen StarWind VSAN because it could be easily deployed on the commodity hardware and integrated into the existing IT client’s infrastructure with no need to buy costly additional components. Following the principle of minimalism, StarWind VSAN has provided high performance for the IT environment and high availability for applications and services with a minimum amount of resources. Thanks to StarWind VSAN, client companies of Andromeda Technology got the main opportunity – to provide failover and performance-optimized storage. Client companies created a failover cluster while reducing costs significantly. All these indicators were achieved without a huge investment in maintaining the SAN infrastructure.
