PROBLEM

Prior to using StarWind Virtual SAN (vSAN), Queensland Tissue Products had numerous physical Dell servers with Hyper-V on top. The company was looking for virtual shared storage reasonably priced to minimize the number of servers. Otherwise, Queensland Tissue Products needed to keep a different set of NAS in maintenance for its VM infrastructure.

SOLUTION

StarWind vSAN was the company’s first try at this kind of solution. But it became the first and one Queensland Tissue Products had used for solving its primary problem. Thanks to StarWind vSAN, the company got rid of the bulk of servers and ensured redundancy with a minimum hardware footprint.
Queensland Tissue Products created a highly available (HA) environment while saving the running costs for storage. Thanks to StarWind vSAN, the company’s IT infrastructure is up and running 24/7, so Queensland Tissue Products wouldn’t even think of using other products and will stick with StarWind in the future.
