StarWind Enterprise Storage Appliance (codename StarWind Fractal SAN) is an innovative storage solution built in collaboration with Mellanox. It is based on the energy-efficient ARM architecture that makes the solution “green” without affecting its performance. StarWind Fractal SAN runs on top of Ceph, an open-source SDS that grants the storage ultimate resilience and scalability. Mellanox, in their turn, ensure the highest possible connectivity that grants solution’s great performance.
