Get unprecedented resiliency of IT infrastructure with StarWind HyperConverged Appliance

22 February, 12:45-1:10 pm ET

Speaker: Max Kolomyeytsev, Director of Product Management, StarWind

Universally accepted redundancy levels are clearly insufficient for environments running multiple independent workloads. Applications crucial for your business like Databases or ERP systems demand the highest possible uptime and resiliency which goes beyond standard protection against 1 node or 1 disk failure. StarWind HyperConverged Appliance combines Local Reconstruction Codes, Replication and Grid Architecture to give you an immense extent of fault tolerance while delivering sustained high performance. It easily withstands multiple disk or even node failures without disrupting the work of the whole infrastructure. In the event of a failure applications are automatically recovered to working disks or nodes of the cluster. With StarWind HCA your applications remain resilient and operational even if more than 50% of the cluster nodes go down.

Announcing new Linux-based StarWind Virtual Storage Appliance

26 January, 2 pm ET

Host: Bogdan Savchenko, Solutions Engineer, StarWind

StarWind Linux-based Virtual Storage Appliance is the best way to test StarWind Virtual SAN functionality promptly without having to disrupt your whole virtualization infrastructure. Regardless of the hypervisor you prefer, be it Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware ESXi, Xen or KVM, the new Linux-based Virtual Storage Appliance is what you need. It deploys from a pre-configured VMware or Hyper-V Virtual Machine and works automatically without any manual adjustments, allowing you to test the capabilities of StarWind VSAN immediately. A typical Linux administrator will get it running in a flash without any additional skills or knowledge required.

Watch our Tap Room meeting with our Solutions Engineer Bogdan Savshenko and see how you can benefit from the Linux-based StarWind VSA that is coming soon.

StarWind presents extreme performance with RDMA-capable future technologies at MegaСast by ActualTech Media

Speaker: Max Kolomyeytsev, Director of Product Management

In this MegaСast webinar from ActualTech Media, Max Kolomyeytsev, Director of Product Management at StarWind talks about the ultra-performing NVMe and other RDMA-capable tech and how they all add up in the HyperConverged Appliance. He describes the actual performance changes that this innovation implies and how it works in real life, not just on paper. The latest update of StarWind HyperConverged Appliance adopts RDMA technology, including protocols and SSD and makes it affordable for SMB, ROBO and SOHO. Max discusses the results of a test performed by StarWind engineers, where they compared regular iSCSI and iSER (iSCSI Extensions for RDMA). Performance tests clearly show the advantage of RDMA-capable protocol over the regular iSCSI uplink.

Unleash the power of NVMe and 100 GbE with RDMA-based storage protocols: NVMf, iSER, and SMB3

1 November, 9 am PT / 12 pm ET

Speakers: Bryan Cowger, VP Sales and Marketing, Kazan Networks
Max Kolomyeytsev, Product Manager, StarWind

NVMe and 3DXpoint flash are the future of storage with the highest bandwidth and lowest latency possible. These technologies will easily handle the most I/O-intensive Enterprise applications, like Online Transaction Processing (OLTP), real-time data analytics, and, on a bigger scale – virtualization workloads and Big Data processing. In today's all-flash datacenters, existing storage protocols are severely running behind and create performance and latency bottlenecks. This problem is solved by the newly-developed cutting-edge protocols, like NVMe-over-fabrics (NVMf), iSER or SMB Direct. They utilize RDMA to initiate dramatic latency drop and performance breakthrough in comparison to existing protocols, like NFS and iSCSI. StarWind and Kazan recognize the value NVMe and the upcoming 3DXpoint flash brings to the modern datacenters and introduce solutions, which allow you to reap the benefits of NVMe storage today.

Watch the webinar by StarWind and Kazan Networks to see how you can implement NVMe storage today with NVMf targets from Kazan Networks and NVMf initiator solutions from StarWind.

Accelerate your performance by deploying iSER to your StarWind infrastructure

15 September, 11 am PT / 2 pm ET

Host: Oles Borys, Director of Support Department, StarWind

StarWind Virtual SAN supports majority of industry-standard uplink protocols, which enables it to work with almost all virtual environments and technologies. Now StarWind VSAN works also with iSER, which is a topnotch extension of data transfer model of iSCSI with RDMA.

iSER is by times faster than iSCSI and easy to manage. With RDMA protocol suite, it supplies higher bandwidth for block storage transfers. It has the lowest latency and lowest CPU utilization. Besides, it is stable and saves advantages of the iSCSI protocol like security and high availability.

Watch our tap room meeting to learn more about iSER and how it enforces StarWind by unloading CPU and speeding up the performance.
