17 November, 11 am PT / 2 pm ET

Speaker: Max Kolomyeytsev, Product Manager, StarWind Software.

Mixing All-Flash setup with hyperconvergence had always been something only large Enterprises could enjoy, but now StarWind makes ultra-high performance affordable for SMB and ROBO. StarWind HyperConverged Appliance brings in SSD from Intel to provide sky-high IOPS without the usual ridiculously high price of such setups. Thanks to StarWind, Enterprise-class All-Flash hyperconvergence is here in the SMB/ROBO space.

Join our webinar to learn how we managed to keep the price of StarWind HyperConverged Appliance down and why it’s wrong to pay for air.

VMware and Fault-Tolerance. Which is Better for Your Backup: 2 or 3 Nodes Hyperconverged?

10 November, 11 am PT / 2 pm ET

Speaker: Oles Borys, Sr. Solution Engineer, StarWind Software Inc.

Storage replication helps to achieve Virtual Machine fault-tolerance in your virtualized environment. As the aim of any admin is to maintain 24/7 operations with at least 99.99% uptime, StarWind makes it possible with its inexpensive 2-node HA configuration. But what is more important, you can achieve 99.9999% uptime with StarWind 3-node HA configuration. Due to synchronous replication, your hyper-converged architecture will keep on working even if 2 of 3 nodes fail. Add solid 3-2-1 backup rule and enjoy top-of-the-line reliability.

Join our webinar and learn how to achieve fault-tolerance in your VMware environment. Discover which replication setup, 2-node or 3-node, better suits specific needs of your virtualized architecture.

StarWind V2V Converter (NEW RELEASE)

July 20, 2015


StarWind V2V Converter converts virtual machines freely from one format to another.

It works with major VM formats, namely VHD/VHDX, VMDK and StarWind native IMG. Both the source and the destination VM copies exist at the same time because the conversion procedure resembles cloning rather than replacement. This way the chance of data corruption and loss during conversion is completely eliminated. As a convenient side effect, StarWind V2V Converter basically creates a backup copy of the VMs, making the process even safer.

When converting the VM to VHDX format, StarWind V2V Converter enables the activation of Windows Repair Mode. This way the virtual machine will automatically adapt to the given hardware environment and negate any compatibility problems.

In comparison to hypervisors’ built-in converters that only work one way (converting to their original VM format), StarWind V2V Converter is much more efficient, because it works both ways, converting any format into another one and back.

On top of the existing V2V features the newly released StarWind V2V Converter V8 Build 162 supports:

  • Red Hat KVM hypervisor and QCOW2 virtual machine images
  • “Stream-optimized” compressed VMDK format widely used with VMware OVF virtual appliances
  • Virtual emulated hardware update together with VM format charge

Enjoy the benefits of this free tool.
