PROBLEM

Before using StarWind HyperConverged Appliance (HCA), one of the client companies of Interface IT Solutions Group LTD had a Windows Server environment based on physical SAN and with VMware ESXi on top. The existing IT infrastructure was fragmented and lacked a solid foundation. Interface IT Solutions Group LTD chose hyperconvergence as the main solution to the problems of the client company. Since the execution of field operations was a prime focus of the company, it was looking for a product that would allow creating a consolidated server architecture and achieving high availability and high performance with minimal hardware footprint and at an affordable price. Interface IT Solutions Group LTD considered EMC and Nutanix hyperconverged products as possible solutions, but the price and the minimum number of nodes needed to create a failover cluster tipped the balance in favor of StarWind.

SOLUTION

Interface IT Solutions Group LTD has chosen StarWind HCA since it consolidated memory, compute, and storage resources in one software-defined hyperconverged platform. HCA allowed creating a failover cluster with two nodes staying in synchronous replication and making the company’s applications highly available. This solution turned out to be ideal for performing field operations ensuring zero data loss. On top of the small hardware footprint, the price of HCA was another nice surprise fitting perfectly the company’s limited budget without compromising IT infrastructure performance. The client company of Interface IT Solutions Group LTD introduced StarWind HCA to its IT infrastructure with proven underlying tech getting rid of the complexities of previous configurations. IT Solutions Group LTD is satisfied with StarWind’s perfect price-performance ratio. Moreover, the expertise at StarWind comes from an incredibly talented team. The company would not hesitate to recommend StarWind to its clients.
