Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""vSAN we found was simple to set up, easy to configure and manage and allows us to achieve storage redundancy.""The biggest benefit was that it allowed us to provide SAN services on a limited hardware budget.""The primary purpose of this software is to create a virtual SAN between local storage on Hyper-V hosts. I find this feature most valuable since it accomplishes this quite well.""StarWind vSAN has allowed us to leverage our server infrastructure more completely without the need to add more hardware.""The most valuable feature is the reliable storage replication, which enables me to create a robust infrastructure to run our business.""StarWind vSAN is a great solution to create a redundant two-node-only Hyper-V cluster, both for domain or workgroup scenarios.""The iSCSI protocol is quite simple to configure."

More StarWind Virtual SAN Pros »

"One of the main features of the solution is that it works on many hypervisors. It is a big advantage. Additionally, the solution is compatible with VMware and Hyper-V, and the management interface, which is called Prism, is very intuitive and user-friendly.""It has a single pane of glass and you don't have to jump around various toolsets.""In the world of IT operations, there is a lot of noise. Traditionally, systems would generate a great deal of alerts, events, and notifications, often leading to the operator either a) not seeing critical alerts since they are lost in the noise or b) disregarding the alerts/events.""Karbon is a must-have as it drastically simplifies the deployment of Kubernetes.""I definitely find the reduced power consumption very valuable. Another aspect I really like, when one compares Citrix to VMware, is the interface where you talk directly to your VM from the present software.""One of the most valuable features is how well this solution performs. It's stable, aside from some patch issues, but it's great from a virtualization and scalability perspective.""The initial setup was quite straightforward.""Nutanix does a superb job with technical support."

Cons
"I wish the sync after a failure, such as hardware failure or power-related issues, for example, was faster.""I found that certain browsers are not fully compatible with the administration web access portal.""I would like to see different levels of support offered.""Performance when in storage-separate configuration needs to be improved.""The main thing I would like to see improved is the level of documentation.""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 main issue we ran into was the documentation. We attempted to set up the product in our test environment by ourselves and ran into several areas of the documentation that were unclear to us.""Although minor, some of the documentation could be rewritten to be clearer."

More StarWind Virtual SAN Cons »

"Nutanix needs to improve network features like Passthrough – SR-IOV. It could be improved by supporting SR-IOV, if they had that support, I would not have needed to implement the VMWare vSAN.""In the licensing, it needs to be clear about features because it is not clear whether Flow is integrated or not.""It would be ideal if it was more secure.""This product would be improved if it included a hybrid cloud solution.""We did have some integration issues.""Could have better visibility with the main OEM backup integrators.""It would be great if they could improve the GUI features.""I would like to see official compatibility with Red Hat in the future."

"The solution is already good but the brand name is not so popular here."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This solution is very accessible and the pro-level for support is well worth the cost.""The support contract is well worth it. The price for it was very reasonable and their team has been very engaged whenever we reach out.""If you are looking at a traditional SAN for a small cluster, give StarWind vSAN because you will save thousands without any compromise.""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.""There are two tiers of support and in my opinion, support is worth the cost.""I think the bang for the buck is much better with StarWind Virtual SAN.""I think that purchasing StarWind Virtual SAN Professional Edition would be optimal for most.""This solution has competitive prices and the implementation is very easy."

"The pricing of Nutanix is not cheap but there are options available.""When compared to the competitors, the price is reasonable.""AHV is free! This is a great feature that should be taken advantage of.""Nutanix is cheaper than Cisco HyperFlex, although it depends on the configuration because Nutanix can also be expensive.""Its price is fine. I can't really complain about that.""My advice is to get the ultimate license, as it is worth it.""The pricing is quite good in comparison with HPE SimpliVity, Nutanix Scale, and even traditional architecture.""There is a license required for this solution and my clients usually purchase a two-year license with extended support. The price of the solution could be reduced, it is more expensive than competitors."

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.

Nutanix delivers invisible infrastructure for next-generation enterprise computing, elevating IT to focus on the applications and services that power their business. Nutanix’s software-driven Xtreme Computing Platform natively converges compute, virtualization and storage into a single solution to drive simplicity in the datacenter. Using Nutanix, customers benefit from predictable performance, linear scalability and cloud-like infrastructure consumption.
