"StarWind VSAN eliminates any need in physical shared storage by simply mirroring internal hard disks and flash between hypervisor servers. "
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 memor caches, log-structuring and an absolutely minimalistic I/O path. The resulting performance is unmatched by either typical virtual appliances or physical shared storage.
