Why StarWind?

StarWind is a one-stop virtualization shop for all the “building blocks” required to construct a full-stack data center infrastructure. We are most certain that the way we combine scalability with simplicity allows our customers to build and scale their environments according to their needs and not according to a limited set of options they’re typically offered.

What you get?

StarWind is a one-stop virtualization shop and the only provider for full-stack datacenter infrastructure you need. StarWind products are extremely easy to use.

StarWind HyperConverged Appliance

 Simplifying Virtual Environment Deployment:

For those who need to build a new virtualization infrastructure from scratch, our solution is StarWind HyperConverged Appliance – the all-in-one simple turn-key hyper-converged platform. It unifies commodity servers, disks and flash, hypervisor and Software-Defined Storage, and associated software into a single manageable layer.

 Why choose HyperConverged Solution from StarWind?

For organizations who are looking to minimize application downtime but are limited on IT team resources and/or budgets, we offer the StarWind HyperConverged Appliance (HCA). StarWind HCA is a 100% software-defined hyperconverged platform built with Dell® OEM or StarWind-branded server platform. There’s a lot we offload from customer’s shoulders: picking the right hardware and software, and integrating the HyperConverged Appliance in your datacenter.

Our engineering team does it all for you at no extra cost! It’s also the only solution among other hyper converged appliances that offers true HA with just a single onsite node. The days when you had to chase support when something breaks are gone: HCA ProActive Premium Support monitors the cluster 24/7, predicts failures and reacts to them before things go South. Thereby, we minimize downtime and management efforts even further.

StarWind Virtual SAN for Hyper-V

 Ultimate Software-Defined Storage for SMB & ROBO:

For those who have sufficient compute resources and need to scale storage capacity without breaking the bank, our solution is StarWind Storage Appliance – the turbocharged storage platform. It serves storage as a single namespace to multiple virtualization environments and easily handles unpredictable data growth.

 Storage Appliance Value Proposition

StarWind SA helps organizations with fixed compute platforms meet storage performance and capacity growth requirements by providing them with high-performance and simply scalable storage fully covered by 24/7 support. StarWind Storage Appliance easily handles high-performance or unpredictable data growth. It serves storage as a single namespace to different environments via multiple uplink protocols: iSCSI, SMB3, NFS, including RDMA-capable iSER and SMB Direct.

Additionally, the appliance features an optional built-in gateway to public cloud to implement an effective Disaster Recovery plan by moving extra copies of backup data into the safety of a public cloud, like AWS or Azure. It is a cost-effective way to follow the “3-2-1 backup rule“, which says there must be three copies of data in two forms, and one must be stored on a remote location. StarWind SA scales up by adding individual disks and flash modules or JBODs, while adding ready controller nodes provides simple scale-out growth as required.

StarWind Virtual SAN for vSphere

 Transcendent Software-Defined Storage for SMB & ROBO

For those, who already have server hardware and need to build a datacenter infrastructure based on the existing setup, our solution is StarWind Virtual SAN – the versatile Software-Defined Storage. It eliminates the need in physical SAN or NAS by “mirroring” disks and flash between servers to create a resilient shared storage.

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.

StarWind? Solutions By Industry


 Challenging the Unknown

When talking about education, Ben Franklin used to say an investment in knowledge pays the best interest. 

Nurturing the new generations requires adaptability, timely response to the rapidly changing world, and being able to incorporate the latest innovations. 

That is why education is always trying to have access to the latest tech.


 Staying Ahead of the Pack

If you want to win, you need to see the bigger picture. These words might as well be the motto of the finance industry.

To manage time, money, and resources on such a major scale, you need to consider every factor.

Keeping your applications highly available and performing at the required level is vital for any business, especially, where the money is involved.


 For the People and By the People

Healthcare is one of the pillars supporting modern society. Yet, unfortunately, in a lot of countries, it is underappreciated and tends to lag behind in terms of technology.

A system of care for patients with different needs across a varying demographic requires a very unique infrastructure to keep that giant organism up and running.

A crucial component of this equation is the IT infrastructure.

IT and Services

 Who Watches the Watchmen?

Someone may find it surprising that IT companies that typically provide IT services, seek IT services, but, as the proverb goes, the cobbler’s children have no shoes.

However, it merely means that such companies aim for improvement in performance and higher efficiency.


 In DIRE need of an upgrade

Small and medium-sized enterprises are in a unique position. Although they are a huge chunk of the market that any sustainable economy relies on, it is not an unusual situation when they are stuck like a brick in the wall.

One of the reasons this is happening is the rapid growth of digital technologies and their impact on each area of life.

SME just does not have the resources to keep up with all the emerging technology.
