PROBLEM

The Psychiatric Hospital in Opava, being a governmental facility, has to abide by strict data security regulations while orchestrating its IT infrastructure. Its original environment used to work based off of three physical servers and storage with vSphere as the hypervisor of choice. The hospital undertook the decision to go hyper-converged as it wanted to introduce new information systems. The original decision was to build it using HPE ProLiant servers with internal disc capacity and HPE VSA. However, the hospital’s partner advised to look towards StarWind for a more efficient and flexible solution.

SOLUTION

The hospital approached StarWind with the respective inquiry, requiring help in turning its infrastructure hyper-converged. StarWind Virtual SAN was chosen as the appropriate solution for that need. It can be easily integrated into any environment and regardless of the existing commodity hardware. On top of that, StarWind engineers supervise the deployment and integration process, providing the client with any assistance that is necessary. Subsequently, the Psychiatric Hospital in Opava received significantly more storage, in addition to increasing its data security and achieving high availability without having to buy any new hardware components to do that.
