Before StarWind Virtual SAN deployment, the company’s existing IT infrastructure comprised physical Dell servers only. This solution raised heat issues for the system administrators. Besides, maintenance costs were very high. The company targeted at IT TCO reduction on account of virtualization rather than a physical SAN device.


In order to solve the issue of excessive hardware footprint, reduce the servers heat, and minimize overall IT TCO the company chose to virtualize. Schneider Packaging Equipment selected StarWind Virtual SAN as a shared storage solution that eliminated the need of 6 physical servers and reduced the heat level in server room. The choice of StarWind Virtual SAN was also based on its simple management and high performance. As a result, Schneider Packaging Equipment leverage high performance and reliability at less expense.
