White Paper: StarWind Data Protection

Companies have always valued their data. Still, such conventional storage media as HDD and SSD can fail at any time. That, actually, is why ensuring your data protection is vital. Learn from this white paper how StarWind ensures data protection, keeping IT ecosystem resilient and cost-efficient.

White Paper: StarWind SMI-S

With intensive environment growth, simple and unified for all environment elements management seems a really nice thing to have. This whitepaper describes how StarWind delivers single “pane of glass” management, integrating SMI-S into SCVMM or OpenStack.

White Paper: StarWind NFS

In fact, Network File System (NFS) simplifies vSphere VM storage management and grants file sharing. On the other hand, the traditional HA NFS storage configurations introduce several challenges, making the environment less cost-efficient. Learn from this white paper how StarWind develops NFS protocol, granting the required high availability and performance for mission-critical applications.

White Paper: StarWind SMB3

Any IT-infrastructure, be it big or small, utilizes the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol to access files, printers and other resources. Still, this protocol can do even more! Learn from this paper how StarWind Virtual developed SMB services, allowing to bring implementation of clustered file servers to the quantitively new level.

White Paper: StarWind iSER

iSER is a powerful iSCSI extension for RDMA that has been designed specially to enhance iSCSI by taking advantage of the RDMA protocol suite. iSER grants uncompromised performance while keeping the latency minimal. The protocol eliminates TCP/IP processing overhead and bypassing the CPU of the target system. Furthermore, it is compatible with any existing storage because iSCSI management and architecture remain unchanged. Together, these benefits make StarWind storage solutions even more performant.
