Technical Paper: StarWind Virtual SAN® 2-node Hyperconverged Scenario with VMware vSphere 6.0

VMware vSphere requires shared storage to ensure data safety, smooth virtual machines migration, and build a fault-tolerant IT environment. StarWind Virtual SAN, in its turn, allows turning the local storage into the shared one. Learn from this technical paper how to set up a hyperconverged 2-node vSphere cluster with StarWind Virtual SAN.

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.
