Before StarWind Virtual SAN (VSAN) deployment, the USS Midway Museum had a 4-node Hyper-V failover cluster with Windows Server 2012. The museum 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 At the same time, storage vendors charged exorbitant prices for outdated methods of SAN storage maintenance and imposed unprofitable support plans.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 opted for StarWind VSAN for its unparalleled advantages in price, support, and ease of use. Unlike other solutions, StarWind allowed the museum to break free from costly support contracts and provided the flexibility to use commodity hardware, granting it full control over its storage infrastructure. Thanks to StarWind, the museum created shared storage and achieved the desired high availability for its applications.

The StarWind solution not only addressed the museum’s challenges but also brought substantial cost savings. The USS Midway Museum saved over 80K in hardware and software costs, underscoring the financial benefits of adopting StarWind VSAN.
