Building a high-performing and fault-tolerant cluster with StarWind Grid Architecture

StarWind Grid Architecture allows configuring a highly fault-tolerant cluster which can easily withstand losing up to a half of the nodes without any downtime. Such cluster configuration maintains the principle of data locality allowing to achieve high performance of the system and becomes a perfect fit for independent workload environments, such as VDI. StarWind also provides two scaling options: scale-up and scale-out.
