Kellstrom Defense Aerospace makes effective storage space allocation and gets easy IT infrastructure management with StarWind

Published: March 13, 2019

StarWind got us off the clustered environment, which was a big help. So, I could regain control
of my storage and reclaim and redistribute the space we desperately needed.

PROBLEM

Previously, Kellstrom Defense Aerospace used clustered storage in a compute and storage separated scenario. Although initially set up in the right way, the IT infrastructure was badly documented that complicated its management enormously. They had a number of drives no longer tied to servers, thus consuming valuable server space with no way to release it and redistribute it. Besides, the architecture was already aging and keeping a cluster alive without issues took much time and effort.

SOLUTION

With StarWind VSAN, Kellstrom Defense Aerospace could reorganize the clustered environment and optimize their IT infrastructure. The company’s specialists got centralized management to properly allocate the storage space they desperately needed. Moreover, having StarWind VSAN it became much easier to backup and much quicker to restore. Besides, StarWind support was brilliant at helping with handling the software defined storage stack. The tech support was great, very responsive and managed to resolve the issue very quickly. StarWind definitely meets Kellstrom Defense Aerospace’s requirements. In the future, the company plans to upgrade to the latest versions regularly.
