PROBLEM

Prior to turning to virtualization, Město Přeštice had a severely outdated IT infrastructure. It consisted of old storage without any vendor support, and experienced frequent performance issues. Being a public office and with the growing needs and problems of local residents, the institution is obliged to have a stable-running environment with tight data security. The city considered HP Store Virtual VSA, but it was too costly to deploy and scale, and difficult to manage.

SOLUTION

With StarWind, Město Přeštice got the chance to not only swiftly update the way its entire environment functions, it also avoided heavy expenses on upgrading its outdated physical storage components. StarWind Virtual SAN was installed into their existing nodes and created a foolproof fault-tolerant storage pool with just two nodes. Thanks to its features, VSAN doesn’t need witness entities, and its licensing provides access to all the perks immediately after purchase. The license includes extensive cloud capacity, mirroring for perfect redundancy, and StarWind engineers deploy and configure the solution for free. Město Přeštice was able to revamp its entire environment, acquire constant uptime and fault tolerance without having to spend a fortune on buying new physical shared storage.
