Key Enterprise-class Storage Features:

StarWind Works on Industry-Standard Hardware

StarWind iSCSI SAN software platform runs on standard enterprise-class x86 or x64 servers, from blades to rack servers. This allows customers to choose from any standard hardware that meets performance, scalability and budget requirements. More importantly, the use of standard servers makes it easy to upgrade to new hardware, faster memory, Nehalem processors, PCI Express RAID controllers or 10 GigE networking that will all improve the performance of the storage appliance built with StarWind.
Standard enterprise-class servers with full redundancy and hot-swappable components that are supported by StarWind 5.0 include Dell, HP and IBM. This freedom to choose from open standards is important to small and midsize companies who want to deploy networked storage cost-effectively and easily without any interoperability issues and the high prices of proprietary storage solutions from traditional vendors.
