Value Proposition

Maritime & Marine

To maritime industry seeking to build self-healing, compact, and easily configurable hyperconverged infrastructure, StarWind offers highly customizable and performance-driven software-defined storage (SDS) and hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) appliances. Ensure that your maritime autonomous vessels at the farthest edge have independent and resilient IT environments that will go on even if certain components fail. StarWind has the necessary solutions to provide for solid data integrity and analytics, minimized hardware footprint, ease of operation, resistance to stringent environmental conditions, and unified 24/7/365 one-vendor support umbrella.

Your systems workload and transactions smoothness lie in IT resiliency and versatility.
We have the impeccable foundation you need to achieve that.


Challenges You Face

  • Shortage of human power and surrounding environmental, working conditions demand that the vessel’s HCI is compiled in a manner that minimizes any chances of breaking
  • The level of HCI resiliency on an autonomous maritime vessel has to be so high that it can continue necessary operations even if several components fail simultaneously
  • Absence of internet connection creates its own concerns, so the vessel’s systems should be able to operate autonomously with flawless redundancy to work seamlessly in any conditions
Stringent environmental and physical conditions, remote location, and heightened data retention and security regulations create a unique demand in low-hardware-footprint yet performant-as-if-on-mainland IT infrastructures for maritime autonomous vessels.

There is also no possibility and it’s unrealistic to compile in-house dedicated IT support teams that will effectively cover each unit. The delivery of infrastructure management and support can be challenging, so fault-tolerant autonomous functioning and proactivity are key. Everything needs to be simple but Highly Available (HA).


The StarWind Way

  • StarWind provides customers with multiple levels of redundancy, ensuring that no downtime occurs in case multiple components fail, literally our concept is “no serviceable parts inside”
  • StarWind builds clusters in a way that allows them to impeccably survive the loss of multiple components and multiple node failures
  • Configure once and its all smooth sailing from there since StarWind-based infrastructures are clockwork and won't cause issues while you're at sea
  • Regardless of internet connection quality, your environment will be monitored 24/7/365 by StarWind ProActive Premium Support (included), which uses machine learning to spot any abnormal behavior to prevent any crashes. Even if you lose internet connection, ProActive Premium Support will continue to observe your system and react if it notices anything strange.

The Solid Base for Your Evolution

StarWind offers rock-solid SDS and turnkey hyper-converged applicances that are feather-light yet reliable beyond expectation. And with StarWind ProActive Premium Support, your environment will be monitored and served 24/7/365, ready to aid you instantly and checking that no unwanted issues occur.

Thanks to tailored architecture, StarWind products take up virtually no space at all (starting with two nodes) while staying effective and resistant in low internet connection, high-temperature, humid, vibrating, and elevated electro-magnetic conditions. Instead of server arrays, choose neat all-flash racks that offer true hyperconvergence with 99.9999% uptime.

Forget about strict hardware compatibility lists (HCLs). Choose StarWind Virtual SAN or HyperConverged All-Flash Appliance to become the impeccable base for tying your diverse infrastructure into a unified resilient environment that will stand up to any production or IT fortification demand. StarWind is a reliable companion to the world’s toughest industries, proved by our experience.

Success Stories

We are satisfied with StarWind. The support is really fantastic. Whenever any issue arises, the response is very prompt, and solution is immediate.

Srinivas Kouda, Company’s Representative

We were able to build 2-node storage clusters based on virtualization in 19 hypermarkets without any problems and with high cost-efficiency.

Vass Sandor, IT Infrastructure Leader

By being able to virtualize our environment with StarWind, we were able to retire some old hardware, get our services highly available, reduce power consumption and heat in our server closet.

David Gardner, Information Systems Manager

StarWind got us off the clustered environment, which was a big help. So, I could regain control of my storage and reclaim and redistribute the space we desperately needed.

Ryan Fulton, Company’s Representative

Price + Simplicity. StarWind vSAN offers great pricing and allows us to get work done without expensive custom hardware. It also makes getting back online quick and easy after an outage or hardware failure.

Aaron Hayes, IT Manager

We chose StarWind Mainly because of the cost compared to other vendors. Simplicity of setup was also a major factor and I like the fact that you don’t need a vendor certified engineer to perform the installation.

John Harris, Windows System Administrator,
Department of Physics, University of Oxford

Because of recommendations of older colleagues, with StarWind, we got a reliable storage with no additional hardware. There was a need to increase IT infrastructure performance and we saw StarWind as the most cost-effective solution.
