Introduction

Management (Command Center)

Managing a hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI), with dozens of hosts and hundreds of clients, can become overwhelming and even serve as a separate job title. HCIs tend to grow continuously, introducing ever more elements that system administrators need to monitor. Soon, it becomes too complicated and impossible to monitor such an environment effectively without specialized software and skills. Fortunately, StarWind has just the right solution to resolve those concerns.

Problem

Problem of monitoring and management hyperconverged infrastructure components

To manage your hardware and software resources you would need multiple dedicated user interfaces (UIs). Elements to account for in an HCI keep on piling up, but there isn't more employees or time to meet that growing demand. Getting more people or buying expensive and complicated popular HCI monitoring software won't really cut it.

In addition to such a tendency creating a lot of confusion and consuming time, it also creates security challenges. You would need some time to figure out where exactly an issue has occurred while surfing through all those windows and logs. All of that time and effort could be dedicated to completing more important tasks, thinking up new innovations, or simply having a break.

Success Stories

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

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

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.
