Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"VSAN works great; it's very easy to install, configure, and manage.""A typical system administrator with minimal experience in Hyper-V, VMware, or Windows can do VSAN configuration and maintain VSAN operations.""Recovery and maintenance are now less stressful and most importantly, it allows our users to keep working.""The fact that I can now count on a true failover solution is what is most appealing.""It has given the company an almost zero possibility of downtime.""It has a nice, simple control panel. You can clearly see the state and health of storage along with the synchronization.""The ability to run the software virtually on every virtualization platform and the ability to eliminate all storage vendor locking are the most valuable features.""This solution made it possible to deploy a new infrastructure in the shortest amount of time, at a low cost without purchasing expensive hardware storage, and use unused servers."

"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.""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 Continuous Data Protection (CDP) feature is one of the good features.""I would rate the user-friendliness an eight out of ten.""The interface is very user-friendly.""Sangfor has many solutions, and you can easily manage their machine servers with just one management. They're always striving for greatness, and they continuously update their products. For example, they have now built endpoint security within the firewall. They are continuously improving not only the security but also all other products.""It is flexible like a hyper-convergence system. You can add nodes, and you can scale to have better performance and stability. I also like the backup feature, the recovery system, and the web interface GUI to handle everything."

Cons
"A mobile app to sync up for overview and status would really be helpful.""Management tools could be improved, sometimes the usage seems to be slowed down and confusing. A native web interface could also be an option. I love to see in the future port of the software on a general Linux distribution like RedHat or Ubuntu in order to avoid windows license costs. I would also like to see features like erasure coding implemented. On the VSAN software, I would like to see some improvements in the storage pools (eliminate the usage of the file as a data container and use the raw partition).""Updating the software can be a bit tricky.""When StarWind Virtual SAN for vSphere nodes go offline unexpectedly, the nodes have to re-sync disks fully which takes a long time. We had a power failure and when both nodes came online, VMware vSphere didn't see StarWind disks before I manually re-scanned them form ESXi administration console even though it should happen automatically""This product would benefit from having automated alerting functionality.""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.""Management of VSAN itself could be improved. A Web UI for management would be great rather than an application installation. StarWind is testing a command center virtual appliance that I have installed in my environment."

"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."

"It can have more compatibility and new features. I would also like to see better performance. Some of the other HCI solutions already provide the SSD and flash storage and much higher Intel processors. Sangfor HCI can improve on that.""As far as I know, no hyper-convergence solution includes security, so you have to buy security from another brand. For example, you buy SimpliVity or Nutanix. They don't really have a security solution inside the product. It would be good if there is a security solution inside this solution so that it is not only for the virtualization of CPU, RAM, disk, and network but also for security.""Sangfor does not support a SAS configuration, which is something that we would like.""Its virtual machine tools can be improved. These tools should be enhanced for use in other applications and operating systems, such as Linux.""The error reporting needs to be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The cost seems a bit steep, and I wish it was less expensive.""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 that purchasing StarWind Virtual SAN Professional Edition would be optimal for most.""The setup cost, pricing, and licensing are very straightforward. They are exactly what you expect.""The cost was ultimately low to implement, which allowed us to be 3-2-1 complaint.""The cost, including OPEX, is lower compared to other solutions.""If you are looking at a traditional SAN for a small cluster, give StarWind vSAN because you will save thousands without any compromise.""The StarWind VSAN business model is very cost-effective."

"The price of Sangfor is cheaper than other competing products.""It is in the middle range as compared to other hyper-converged infrastructure solutions. There is a three-year warranty on the hardware. The license also includes other features. Sangfor has included Continuous Data Protection (CDP) and a built-in firewall with the license. Other top brands, such as VxRail and VMware, require a separate license for such features.""The pricing of Sangfor is very competitive.""Its price should be better, but I don't think they will change the price list. You have to pay for licenses, and you have to pay for support, so you have an annual fee. You can use the product without the fee, but it's really dumb because you need support. We are an IT company. We provide the product, and we need the support too for our customers."

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.

Huawei FusionCube is a hyper-converged infrastructure, which consists of computing, storage, network, virtualization, and management systems.

Sangfor HCI consolidates traditional hardware-appliance-based security, IP network, storage network, server and storage into one tier of commodity hardware (x86 server), forming a standardized HCI unit. By building IT infrastructure with a standardized HCI vendor and realizing visible, centralized operation & management via a unified WEB platform, users can enjoy an ultra-simplified, on-demand IT framework that is evolvable.
