Overview

StarWind HyperConverged Appliance - Hyper-converging video security infrastructures and introducing endless scaling possibilities.

StarWind HCA is a turnkey hyper-converged solution that dramatically reduces CapEx and OpEx by combining computing, storage, networking, and software into a footprint of just 2 nodes (one on-prem and one in the cloud), at the same time increasing your scalability and minimizing IT-management efforts. It can be either the basis of a business’ IT environment or easily integrated into an existing one, whatever its composition is. StarWind ProActive Premium Support constantly monitors your hyper-converged infrastructure’s performance to spot and potential for issues and our Engineers act to remove the shortcomings. The solution ensures there is enough storage to hold your video- and other security data, as well as it makes your environment immune to any disasters that may come knocking.

Key features

  • True fault tolerance. Having two nodes, the system can lose 1 node +1 disk and function as if nothing happened.
  • Performance boost. Thanks to server-side caching, all nodes have the same cache, so VMs can “hot start” and work without performance loss.
  • Scalability. The software-centric architecture allows to easily rebalance your existing IT resources or integrate new ones without downtime.
  • Efficiency and beyond. Our two-node (one physical + one in the cloud) cluster costs way less than self-built hyper-converged infrastructures.
  • Plug & Play. StarWind ProActive Premium Support does all of the work for you, from pre-configuration and deployment to monitoring and troubleshooting.
