StarWind shared iSCSI Storage Software

StarWind iSCSI SAN software platform runs on Microsoft based standard enterprise-class x86 or x64 servers, from blades to rack servers. This allows customers to choose from any standard hardware that meets performance, scalability and budget requirements. More importantly, the use of standard servers makes it easy to upgrade to new hardware, faster memory, Nehalem processors, PCI Express RAID controllers or 10 GigE networking that will all improve the performance of the storage appliance built with StarWind.
