StarWind is the best storage product I have ever used! It satisfies and exceeds requirements.

Before StarWind Virtual SAN (VSAN) deployment, the USS Midway Museum had 4-node Hyper-V failover cluster with Windows Server 2012. The organization wanted to create shared storage using commodity hardware. At the same time, storage vendors charged exorbitant prices for outdated methods of SAN storage maintenance and imposed unprofitable support plans. The USS Midway Museum needed to achieve high availability (HA) for its applications at a reasonable price.


The USS Midway Museum has chosen StarWind VSAN because it could be easily deployed on the commodity hardware and integrated into the existing IT infrastructure. Thanks to StarWind, the organization received shared storage ease in use and support. The USS Midway Museum achieved such a desired HA for its applications. This is all at a reasonable price and without additional support costs. The numbers speak for themselves: with StarWind VSAN, the company saved more than $80,000 on hardware and software expenses.
