Key points of the webinar:

  • Introduction into Virtual SAN
  • Insights into StarWind Virtual SAN – virtualization software solution

Server-side storage, now increasingly called “Virtual SAN” with VMware adoption of the term in 2014, is not a new idea. The strategy, involving the nodal clustering of locally-installed or direct-attached silicon and magnetic storage, was first articulated by StarWind Software in 2011. StarWind was working to develop a storage architecture that would help early adopters of server hypervisors realize the promised cost efficiencies from their investments. Storage remains a significant cost in server virtualization, creating a barrier for large and especially smaller firms seeking to drive down IT costs while enabling better service levels. And StarWind brings a hardware-minimalistic and flash-friendly solution which complements the VMware hypervisor delivering a more robust and capable Virtual SAN at a lower cost.
