Beverly, MA, Month Date, 2021 – StarWind launches a new solution that’s a pre-packaged Linux-based VM that brings the full power of ZFS to existing hypervisor servers while allowing to repurpose them into high-performing storage appliances free of charge.
StarWind, a leading provider of hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions for Enterprise ROBO, SMB & Edge, is marking a new era with the launch of StarWind Free NAS & SAN. The new product is a feather-light piece of software in a form of a ready-to-go Linux-based virtual machine (VM) that allows transforming existing hypervisor servers into HCL-certified storage appliances.
Users can now reimagine their hardware into software-defined storage (SDS) without paying for extra features or buying a physical SAN/NAS. If a server can run either VMware ESXi or Microsoft Hyper-V, users can use Free NAS & SAN from StarWind to repurpose it into a high-performance storage appliance, network-attached storage (NAS), and/ or backup target, using commodity hardware.
All of these features are available COST-FREE! There is no other offer like this on the market.
StarWind aims at bringing sustainability and hyperconvergence benefits to deployments of any size. That’s why Free NAS & SAN from StarWind is meant as a step forward to showing more ROBO, SMB & Edge users that painfully saving costs to pour into over-priced and bulky physical shared storage is a thing of the past. With StarWind, you can claim both converged and hyperconverged infrastructure benefits for your own much more efficiently and flexibly.
Suggested by its name, StarWind Free NAS & SAN comes as a cost-free software solution. It brings a multitude of great benefits at this stage already. Mainly, coming as a Linux VM, the solution unleashes all the power of ZFS on Linux to bring optimal storage use and solid data integrity. High Availability, Fault Tolerance, and Commercial Support, including ProActive Support, will come as purchasable options for StarWind NAS & SAN down the road, for customers who want to ensure their production environments are foolproof and babysat 24/7/365.
