New StarWind 5.0 iSCSI SAN Software Works Seamlessly on Any Industry-Standard x86 or x64 Server

StarWind Gives Small and Midsize Companies the Freedom to Easily and Cost-effectively
Deploy Networked Storage without Interoperability Issues or High Prices

Online PR News – 10-November-2009 – – Burlington, Mass. – New Starwind 5.0 from StarWind Software, a global leader in storage virtualization and a pioneer in iSCSI storage, allows customers the freedom to choose from any standard server hardware to build their own SAN or networked storage. The StarWind iSCSI SAN software platform runs on and converts any standard enterprise-class x86 or x64 server, from blades to rack servers, into a fault-tolerant, fail-safe SAN. Using industry-standard servers, instead of SAN products from proprietary vendors, makes it very easy to upgrade to new hardware, faster memory, Nehalem processors, PCI Express RAID controllers or 10 GigE networking. This inherent flexibility permits companies of all sizes to improve the performance of their storage appliances without the complexity, interoperability barriers and the high costs of traditional, large vendors and their storage products.

Standard enterprise-class servers with full redundancy and hot-swappable components that are supported by StarWind 5.0 include Dell, HP and IBM as well as any custom, white-box servers. 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 or the high prices of proprietary storage solutions from traditional vendors.
