VMware “Ready Nodes” unleashed in StarWind HyperConverged Appliance

StarWind HyperConverged Appliance (https://www.starwindsoftware.com/starwind-hyperconverged-appliance) is an extremely versatile hyper-convergence platform, which gives the user many options of hypervisors and Software-Defined Storages. The variant discussed in the webinar is called VMware “Ready Node”, because it is based on VMware vSphere and VMware Virtual SAN. Additionally, StarWind Virtual SAN can be utilized to expose the VMware-based infrastructure to external consumers or lower the minimum HA setup to 2 nodes. StarWind HyperConverged Appliance requires minimum effort from the on-site IT team, because 90% of the work had already been done by StarWind engineers: planning, infrastructure design, components purchase, licenses purchase, installation, configuration, testing. That’s why the HCA is considered a turnkey solution and a virtualization infrastructure “building block”.
