AVR, Inc. ensures a smooth operation of its electronic billing system by creating an HA cluster powered by StarWind VSAN

Thanks to StarWind, we minimized our downtime,
and we are very happy with the product.

Before StarWind Virtual SAN (VSAN) deployment, AVR, Inc. had an issue with single non-clustered Hyper-V servers that didn’t allow for high availability (HA). So, the company wanted to build an HA cluster using shared storage, all at a reasonable price. Prior to using the StarWind product, AVR tried other solutions, but in the end, it opted for VSAN because of StarWind Support.


Implementing StarWind VSAN, AVR created a clustered environment with HA and redundancy functionalities. At this, downtime was reduced to zero. As for now, the company is more than satisfied with its IT infrastructure operation powered by StarWind VSAN and plans to use the StarWind product in the future.
