The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand has worked with a Windows Server OS running a Hyper-V. This system used to work satisfactory, but the performance levels were too far from perfect. Eventually, the company decided to scale up their storage to increase performance level and reach a higher uptime percentage. SAN solution was out of the table since the priority was finding a hardware-agnostic software-defined storage solution open for deployment in Microsoft environment.
As StarWind Virtual SAN (VSAN) solution installs as a Windows-native application, its deployment allowed the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand to leverage their existing Windows Server environment with highly available storage infrastructure spending zero effort on the configuration. Now, the resulting infrastructure not only works as required but has also significantly decreased system downtime in case of maintenance.
