Logos Data Services moves to hyperconvergence with StarWind getting rid of the bulk of outdated hardware

Published: July 9, 2019

We have used StarWind in-house at our Data Center for 5-10 years. Our resulting infrastructure has performed great.

PROBLEM

Before StarWind Virtual SAN (VSAN) deployment, the client company of Logos Data Services had an infrastructure with a combination of Dell EqualLogic SAN devices and Dell PowerEdge Servers with VMware ESXi on top. The main problem was related to outdated hardware and software and a lack of support and service warranties. Outdated hardware resources increase the risk of security breaches and reduce the company’s productivity. In addition, in such a situation there may be accidental failures of the infrastructure, data loss, and even legal and regulatory compliance risks. That is why the presence of a modern and safe IT environment is extremely important for a business.

SOLUTION

Logos Data Services has chosen StarWind VSAN because it could be easily deployed on the existing client company’s hardware and run on the VMware ESXi hypervisor. It solved the problem with the outdated company’s hardware and software by replacing and consolidating several old SAN and VMware ESXi servers to 2 hyperconverged servers. In this way, StarWind VSAN enabled to create a highly available and fault-tolerant IT environment. Cutting the costs at least in half, meaning both Operational and Capital Expenditures, the StarWind solution provides high performance at a price affordable for SMBs.
