StarWind has established a name for themselves over the past 10 years building robust hyperconverged infrastructure for enterprise ROBO, SMB, and EDGE IT operations. They have a strong focus on designing affordable systems that are powerful, easy to use, and easy to get up and running without having to invest heavily in hardware or IT staff. 

Deploying remote office branch office (ROBO) IT operations generally requires a heavy upfront investment in slow, unreliable, and hard-to-manage HDD solutions, as well as dedicated onsite IT personnel. You’ve also got to deal with the hassle of complicated software needed to manage multiple systems.

StarWind designed its new all-Flash Hyperconverged Appliance (HCA) to give you peace of mind for your mission-critical applications with a powerful, reliable hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) without having to invest a fortune in IT hardware and staff.

By using all-flash SSD drives instead of HDDs, StarWind’s HCA gives you incredible speeds up to 15 times faster than HDD products with a random I/O performance of 6000 io/s. Because SSD systems have virtually zero access time, you also get drastically better system performance.

The result of going all-flash is that StarWind is able to combine read-intensive and mix-use drives to provide a powerful data solution without breaking the bank. The most amazing part is that they’re able to pack all of this in a 2-node solution that is incredibly scalable.

Every company is different with different needs for a hyperconverged infrastructure so StarWind has built three different versions of its HCA to fit a range of business needs.

One of the biggest challenges of managing hyperconverged infrastructures is that they are often set up on multiple systems and/or require additional software to monitor them. StarWind designed its HCA to run entirely on a web browser to give you single-pane-of-glass management of your system.

Another way this HCA helps you save on IT staff is that the company will set up and configure your system for you. Everything comes entirely preconfigured and StarWind’s engineers will test and deploy the solution for free. 

Your IT system is only as good as the support it has and StarWind backs up its HCA with premium customer support service that monitors the health of the systems 24/7/365. If there’s an issue, StarWind’s engineers will immediately resolve it for you. 

The new HCA comes highly rated from within the IT industry with IT Central Station awarding it the number three spot in the SDS category for its Peer Awards in 2021. The system also recently scored 4.8 out of 5 stars in Gartner’s “Voice of the Customer” HCI report for 2020 and was included in the Magic Quadrant for the third year in a row

SSD technology has brought incredible speed, performance and efficiency gains to the entire industry and StarWind has harnessed that to bring an affordable HCI package, perfect for enterprise ROBO, SMB, & Edge environments.
