The Salvation Army Georgia Division streamlines its operations by creating a fully virtualized IT environment around StarWind HCI Appliance (HCA)

PUBLISHED/UPDATED: November 21st, 2023

StarWind’s performance opportunities allowed us to focus on exactly what we needed
instead of having to over-engineer and guess at our future infrastructure needs.

Ben Poole, Divisional IT Manager


Before using StarWind HCI Appliance (HCA), The Salvation Army Georgia Division’s IT infrastructure was partially virtualized, relying on Microsoft Hyper-V. The existing setup posed challenges, as it was unreliable, difficult to manage, and time-consuming. Additionally, there was a significant cost barrier to consolidating storage, ensuring redundancy, and enhancing performance within a constrained budget.

SAGD required a distributed storage system to build a hyperconverged infrastructure and ensure high performance.


Being a 100% software-defined hyperconverged platform, StarWind HCI Appliance allowed SAGD to create a distributed storage system that could easily scale and provide efficient distribution of workloads.

The implementation of the StarWind solution allowed for optimal performance and storage utilization across physical nodes. The outcome was a robust, redundant, and high-performance infrastructure. With this solution in place, the IT team transitioned from maintenance and updates to a focus on innovation.

The Salvation Army’s infrastructure team, upper management, and end users express satisfaction with the implementation of StarWind HCA.
