Ryman LTD cuts its IT operational expenses by deploying a hyperconverged infrastructure powered by StarWind HCI Appliance (HCA)

PUBLISHED/UPDATED: September 15th, 2022

StarWind HCA, definitely, satisfies all of our requirements
and allows us to live migrate VMs to other hosts giving
us maximum possible uptime.

Robert L, IT Infrastructure Manager


Before implementing StarWind HCI Appliance (HCA), Ryman LTD had a cluster of servers with shared storage and Hyper-V on top. The company wanted to move to hyperconvergence and eliminate the need for additional shared storage hardware without losing the flexibility it brought. After intense testing, Ryman LTD has chosen StarWind HCA.


Using StarWind HCA, Ryman LTD removed its outdated network attached storage (NAS) cluster and built a high-performance hyperconverged infrastructure, not compromising its flexibility options. The company also achieves high availability (HA) and high application uptime. In the future, Ryman LTD will likely expand its server estate with additional StarWind clusters.
