Before StarWind Virtual SAN (VSAN) deployment, Slovenian Sovereign Holding (SSH) grappled with a non-clustered hypervisor environment across three physical servers and twenty virtual machines (VMs). Operating solely on backup software and OS scripts for VM cloning posed significant operational risks, hindering business contingency planning. High availability (HA) was non-existent, and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) were unacceptable.

After a thorough evaluation, SSH chose StarWind VSAN as the optimal solution.


With StarWind VSAN, SSH transitioned to a hyperconverged environment, achieving HA in its primary data center with synchronous replication to its disaster recovery center. This enabled robust disaster recovery procedures and significantly enhanced operational resilience. Within four months of StarWind VSAN implementation, SSH experienced seamless operations, including an online upgrade without any downtime.

The company was impressed by StarWind ProActive Premium Support, providing timely assistance. SSH recommends StarWind for organizations seeking reliable, feature-rich storage solutions backed by exceptional support and service.
