The solution is also quite flexible. As an example, other vSAN solutions that we looked at had more stringent requirements regarding mixed HDD/SSD storage which wouldn't have worked in our environment.

StarWind allows us to move virtual machines from one physical host to another, which greatly reduces the downtime required for maintenance.

This software lets us maintain storage redundancy across both of our Hyper-V hosts, so if one goes down the environment fails over to the other and we have minimal to no downtime.

IT System Administrator at Ludwig Meyer GmbH & Co. KG
Feature-wise we are only waiting for the release of a "planned disaster" feature that would allow us to patch a hypervisor node without having to take the full storage offline.

The console is something that I feel could be improved. There is nothing technically wrong with it, but it can be jazzed up and/or made to be a little more intuitive.

It would be nice to see a new UI for the windows client, as it is not the easiest to find settings.
