University of Oxford

The Department of Physics at the University of Oxford needed to expand its vSphere cluster storage, but encountered a few issues on the way.

Such an expansion would be very expensive with the current deployment, because of hardware lock-in and prices. Using StarWind Virtual SAN, they managed to avoid complications and expand the storage without breaking the bank. "We chose StarWind Mainly because of the cost compared to other vendors. Simplicity of setup was also a major factor and I like the fact that you don’t need a vendor certified engineer to perform the installation", said John Harris - Windows System Administrator of the Department of Physics, University of Oxford."
