With StarWind, VMware professionals get a scalable, highly cost-effective and easy-to-use iSCSI SAN storage that fully protects their VMware virtual machines in the event of failure especially when using VMware HA and VMotion features.

StarWind Software, a global technology leader in SAN software and a pioneer in iSCSI storage software, allows virtual environments to take advantage of VMware HA and VMotion to inrease data and appliaction availability and reduce the risk of downtime of virtual machines. StarWind is an advanced and powerful iSCSI SAN software that turns any standard Intel-architecture x86 or x64 server into a fully-functional SAN or network storage.

With StarWind, VMware professionals get a scalable, highly cost-effective and easy-to-use iSCSI SAN storage that fully protects their VMware virtual machines in the event of failure especially when using VMware HA and VMotion features. VMware HA provides high availability for any application running in a virtual machine, hence minimizing downtime from server and operating system failures in a VM. And VMotion allows to move running virtual machines from one physical host to another. These advanced VMware features require shared storage or a SAN which can be built with StarWind SAN Software.

Additionally, once the shared storage is built to be used with VMware HA and VMotion, StarWind's true active-active high availability (HA) architecture provides an extra protection layer with continuous and non-disruptive access to storage in the event of failure by synchronously mirroring data between two active storage appliances, or nodes, in real time with automatic failover and failback. If a disk, power or even an entire storage node fails, the redundant storage node will take over and will continue actively operating without any disruption, ensuring that storage is available and accessible on the network. StarWind also enhances data protection in VMware environments with additional features like Remote Replication over the WAN, CDP/Snapshots and Thin Provisioning.
