Pros
"The most valuable feature is the reliable storage replication, which enables me to create a robust infrastructure to run our business.""Quick setup, great support, stability is great""The most useful aspect is the hyper-converged SD SAN and the ease to expand it by just adding cheap SSD or NVME disks.""vSAN we found was simple to set up, easy to configure and manage and allows us to achieve storage redundancy.""The vSAN provides full redundancy for storage while reclaiming some rack space.""The ability for us to manage all of our nodes from the same console makes systems administration very easy.""The fact that I can now count on a true failover solution is what is most appealing.""Having the ability to scale horizontally if needed is a huge plus for future growth."

More StarWind Virtual SAN Pros →

"Reasonably priced and easy to manage for small to medium size companies that don't have an IT department.""There are multiple advantages. Typically, being an all-flash storage, which is available through either SimpliVity or dHCI, the performance is much better because the IOPS goes high, so it's more powerful in terms of performance. Secondly, if I'm talking of SimpliVity Hyper Convergence solution from HPE, unlike the competition, even if three hard drives fail, you are still running the solution.""No concerns or issues with stability."

More HPE Hyper Converged Pros →

"The solution is stable and everything is taken care of through the Huawei support center. They ensure everything is running smoothly. It's been very good.""The pricing of the solution is excellent. It's one of the main reasons a customer chooses Huawei. It's much, much better than VMware."

Cons
"It would be nice to add the ability to use raw partitions instead of file containers.""I found that certain browsers are not fully compatible with the administration web access portal.""I see no need for major improvements but there could be some improvements in the form of notifications and the simplifying of maintenance mode.""A great feature would be a wizard and to include a new disk in the SAN. At the moment, including a new disk requires several steps - some that must be done at the OS level and others in each node.""New versions of this solution should be tested more thoroughly before the release as we had a few problems with one version due to a bug.""I would like to see different levels of support offered.""In the next release, they could make some graphs of the real-time loading, speed of storage, and interfaces. Of course, these can be viewed in other places. But, in the event of a malfunction or troubleshooting, this would be convenient.""The StarWind Management Console is available only for Microsoft Windows/Windows Server, and should also be available for Linux and macOS, as it would reduce implementation costs."

More StarWind Virtual SAN Cons →

"Installation and setup could be easier.""In the Hyper Converged environment, some of the brands only support the OS VMware and not Hyper-V from Microsoft or even Red Hat or KVM.""Scalability requires using additional nodes."

More HPE Hyper Converged Cons →

"t would be helpful if the solution was able to collaborate or integrate with other well-known monitoring tools. Right now, you have to work hard to get it configured. It would be a good selling point for them if they could open up their solution to more integrations.""Technical support needs improvement. There's a lot of language barriers."

    Overview

    For SMB, ROBO, Cloud and Hosting providers, who look to cut down virtualization expenses, our solution is StarWind VSAN. It is software that eliminates any need in physical shared storage by basically “mirroring” internal hard disks and flash between hypervisor servers. There is less hardware to buy in general, consequently less money is spent on purchase and maintenance. The existing hardware is used with maximum efficiency, so there is no money wasted at all.

    StarWind Virtual SAN targets those who already have servers, or are bound to a particular vendor list to buy from. In case there is a new virtualization infrastructure to be built from scratch, StarWind offers a much better way – StarWind HyperConverged Appliance. It is a turnkey solution complete with hardware and software, powered by StarWind Virtual SAN. Those who need to build and maintain virtualization infrastructure at little to no expense, may be interested in StarWind Virtual SAN Free.
