StarWind HyperConverged Appliance (HCA)

Hyperconvergence in a Flash

StarWind HCA goes all-flash to bring your applications the ultimate glory of both capacity utilization and climactic performance while maintaining the benefits of evidently decreased TCO and increased ROI. Our software-centric architecture dramatically reduces CapEx and OpEx by merging network, compute, storage, and software to bring HCI management simplicity and versatile scalability in a single 2U.

Don’t overthink —Request Demo

We have already proven that virtualization and hyperconvergence can be affordable and cost-efficient contrary to past peer opinion. Continuing its policy of bringing top-shelf features to Enterprise ROBO, SMB & Edge, we now offer HCA All-Flash only. StarWind HCA All-Flash is a potent blend of Read-Intensive and Mix-Use Drives. This new generation showcases that capacity, performance, and cost-efficiency can walk hand-in-hand for a fact.

See how much more cost-efficiency, product longevity, and sustainability (in figures) you get with All-Flash vs. HDDs

    • Reduce IT management costs and invest in innovation
  • Data Locality

    • No more dispersed data and irregular read/writes to “bottleneck” your performance via interconnect fabrics.
    • StarWind HCA keeps the compute and storage resources for every VM on the same node to achieve max performance.
  • Server-Side Caching

    • StarWind HCA uses conventional RAM as a write buffer and Level 1 cache to absorb writes, achieving Level 2 cache.
    • Cache is kept synchronized between both nodes, allowing to start post-migration VMs in a “hot state.”
  • Multiprotocol

    • There is virtually no incompatibility in communication with StarWind HyperConverged Appliance.
    • The platform uses all industry-standard uplink protocols: SMB3, NFSv4.1, iSCSI, VVols on iSCSI, NVMe-oF, iSER, and others.
