We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It allows me to configure High Availability and failover clustering with some fault tolerance, at a cost point that doesn’t break the bank for a small business budget.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the support. They are excellent and you can learn a lot from the support team.""It has given the company an almost zero possibility of downtime.""When using new (warranty) servers, you can forget about the storage service for several years. The users will not even notice the failure of two servers out of three.""The biggest benefit was that it allowed us to provide SAN services on a limited hardware budget.""StarWind Virtual SAN for vSphere is a software-defined storage solution that has reduced administration time for storage. It's pretty straightforward to install and setup it and so far it has been robust and worked as advertised from StarWind.""A great feature is that I basically set it and forget it, as everything is automatic.""PowerShell library is pretty good feature as I created with APC PowerChute a script to put volumes on maintenance mode then turning off the StarWind nodes together with the VM and Hosts when UPS reaches 15 percent, this way after a blackout or electrical problems when turning servers on again, there is no issues for syncing or data loss due to energy interrupts."

"Nimble DHCI is really user friendly and not complex""I love InfoSite. That gets you a lot of good detailed information.""It is easier to manage compared to the other vendors.""HPE's InfoSight software, which does the comparative analysis and artificial intelligence built-in in the box, and with Nimble they do well against the competition. Additionally, the dashboards are good.""The solution is useful for taking storage snapshots, has high performance, and the CASL architecture is good for optimizing workloads.""The nice thing about it is that it truly integrates with the cloud, so I can move my volumes bi-directionally in and out of the cloud.""Very good in-line compression."

"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
"I would like to see different levels of support offered.""It would help if the manufacturer provided clearer and more detailed documentation, with explanations of how the application can be installed in various HA configurations.""StarWind relies on the underlying OS to manage the "SAN files" whether that would be a RAID volume, software RAID (such as LVM), etc. It would be useful if StarWind could incorporate the actual physical drive management inside of the solution, similar to Storage Spaces Direct.""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.""The main thing I would like to see improved is the level of documentation.""I think the setup could be streamlined a bit.""Maybe in the future, the replication will be supported in more cloud providers.""Updating the software can be a bit tricky."

"The only issue I'm really running into is we have a SQL server that we're having a lot of high IO latency on one of my drives and it's my data drive from my SQL server. It's not really giving me any good information as to where that latency is coming from, so that's what I'm trying to track down and troubleshoot.""The initial setup is a little bit complicated.""Sometimes the technical support would get back to us in two hours, but other times it would take them two or even three days to respond.""The solution could improve by providing better file-level restoration and DVX system options.""Their documentation needs to be simpler to read yet more detailed so it's easy to compare models and easier for clients to pick.""Lacking integration to the cloud.""HPE Nimble Storage dHCI currently is promoting only VMware as a hypervisor, whereas if they can look into other OSs, such as KVM or Red Hat, it would be an improvement."

More HPE Nimble Storage dHCI Cons »

"Technical support needs improvement. There's a lot of language barriers.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Licensing is easy and the whole package is cost-effective.""The setup cost, pricing, and licensing are very straightforward. They are exactly what you expect.""StarWind is a low-cost, full-featured alternative to the traditional SAN environment, and their support will guide you every step of the setup.""I think the bang for the buck is much better with StarWind Virtual SAN.""This is the best priced solution for an SMB.""The premium support from StarWinds is a must have. The ability to have access to a storage engineer 24/7 is a must for a production environment.""This solution is very accessible and the pro-level for support is well worth the cost.""The cost seems a bit steep, and I wish it was less expensive."

More StarWind Virtual SAN Pricing and Cost Advice »

"I think it's priced right and it's extremely intelligent.""The customers have found the solution to be expensive. However, when compared to the competition the price is reasonable."

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.
