StarWind Storage Appliance Pros

Another good feature is that you can pause the appliance if you want to move it from one location to another and then once it's moved you can resume it, this way you can physically move the whole cluster or storage without any downtime. Its really easy to use, if you have a good foundation in storage and clustering then you will need less then one hour to figure out how to operate it.

StarWind Storage Appliance Cons

It needs more integration with backup vendors so there is native integration with it that will allow storage level backup/snapshots. I would love to see integration with Veeam and Commvault so it can be recognized by them directly and added as network storage.

They offered onsite installation, but we chose to do it ourselves. That took longer and was more work for us but saved us a ton of money in the end.
