Every day our company solves a number of complicated and long lasting IT infrastructure related problems of different businesses.
That is why we tend to call the finished projects “Success Stories”. By presenting them, we explain in what way StarWind Software assisted IT-specialists in multiple spheres.
We believe that Education and IT always “go together”. IT, belonging to one of the fastest growing industries, requires intellectual resources, which are mainly supplied by the Education sector. At the same time, the Education sector is fully supported by the newest developments in IT and is unable to progress without deploying its results into the daily activity.
So, one of our Education-related customers, The University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point, contacted us because of the necessity to create the highly available virtual storage appliance (5 GB), which could protect the intellectual data for educational and personal purposes.
After experiencing the multiple scenarios, when one of the servers’ storage capacities run out and there was a pressing need of purchasing and bringing online of an extra one, the university IT staff started to look for an alternative solution.
Seeing the excess storage space on some servers, while others were running out of it, the university IT staff decided to go for clustered file server option.
The cost of StarWind plus the flexibility to deploy the Virtual SAN software on any server using any disk drives made StarWind the clear choice for the university. Absence of hardware lock-in and the scalability to keep pace with the growing storage demands were important decision factors to stick with this solution.
As a result, StarWind optimized the storage capacity, achieved high data availability and saved money for the university IT department!
