StarWind VSAN eliminates any need in physical shared storage by simply mirroring internal hard disks and flash between hypervisor servers. It maintains high performance and data high availability (HA) on minimalistic resources.
StarWind Virtual SAN delivers performance and reliability using commercial off-the-shelf hardware, removing the need for costly proprietary components.
In addition, those who need to build and maintain virtualization infrastructure at little to no expense may be interested in StarWind VSAN Free.
Free Software-Defined Storage (SDS). VSAN Free from StarWind is shipped with a set of ready-to-use PowerShell scripts that would help users to quickly deploy the VSAN environment and configure most of its features quickly and simply. VSAN free product is designed for production purposes, POC (Proof of Concept), or test and development.
StarWind VSAN runs as a native hypervisor component or in VM, and it does not require any deep storage and network administration or UNIX management skills. A typical system administrator with minimal experience in Hyper-V, VMware or Windows can do VSAN configuration, configure and maintain VSAN operations.
Virtual SAN from StarWind cuts the costs at least in half, meaning both Operational and Capital Expenditure, and frees from hidden VSAN licensing expenses. It eliminates the actual physical shared storage, corresponding infrastructure, associated deployment and maintenance activities. Virtual SAN from StarWind works on commodity hardware, so there’s not only less hardware to purchase and maintain, but also the required hardware is inexpensive.
VSAN performance is uncompromised by the minimalistic hardware footprint, reduced deployment and management costs. StarWind VSAN brings to the table server-side flash and memory caches, log-structuring and an absolutely minimalistic I/O path. The resulting performance is unmatched by either typical virtual appliances or physical shared storage.
StarWind’s NVMe-oF protocol implementation allows maximum PCIe SSD utilization in Hyper-V environments. With this protocol in place, the difference between a locally connected NVMe drive and one presented over the network vanishes.Learn more >
StarWind iSER, a protocol designed to improve iSCSI, completely eliminates the problem of network bottlenecks and latency issues providing higher bandwidth for block storage transfers. It allows achieving maximum performance in cluster systems, which makes VM migration, data and VM replication even faster and easier to implement.Learn more >
Log-structured Write-Back Cache is a caching technology tailored for intense virtualized workloads. By effectively combining the fast memory like flash or RAM and a tiny portion of your storage, this feature optimizes the way data is written to the underlying storage. As a result, all your applications always get the resiliency and performance that they need.Learn more >
