Date: 2 April, 11 am ET / 4 pm BST

Host: Anatoly Vilchinskiy, Head of Support Department, StarWind Software Inc.

Let’s put all cards on the table: VMware is good, their VSAN is good. But does it good for all situations? Get yourself on the most comfortable chair in the Tap Room, open the whisky bottle, and our host will tell you why is it better to start with two shots instead of shugging the whole bottle.

*The only Tap Room, where no one will snatch your cocktail if you leave it on a table.

Virtualize properly!

Highly-Available SQL Server with reliable Disaster Recovery is traditionally hard to achieve but necessary to have. We say it is possible to build a fully redundant SQL Server 2014 cluster with just 2 servers, StarWind Virtual SAN and Cluster Shared Volumes while implementing disaster recovery to several places with minimal RTO and RPO!
Join SQL Server MVP and Microsoft Certified Master Edwin M Sarmiento to learn how to use Windows Server Failover Clustering with Cluster Shared Volumes to provide high availability and disaster recovery solutions for mission-critical SQL Server 2014 databases.
We will look at how to configure a highly available SQL Server on top of Cluster Shared Volumes and also discuss best practices and recommendations.

3. Free Webinar! Make Your Storage Work For You: VAAI and ODX offload up to 30% of disk operations to the SAN

Date: 21 April, 11am PT / 2pm ET

Speakers: Aidan Finn, Microsoft MVP, Technical Sales Lead at MicroWarehouse Ltd.
Max Kolomyeytsev, Product Manager, StarWind Software Inc.

StarWind always considered virtual storage systems to be valued for uptime, performance and flexibility – take one out and the system is useless. Hypervisor CPU and Networking overhead is a common issue for operations like VM provisioning, migration, and cloning. There should be a way to enhance performance by offloading the unnecessary CPU load and shrinking the SAN traffic. ODX and VAAI features do exactly this by offloading routine disk tasks to the storage array so they will be executed more effectively. That is if your SAN supports one of these features. StarWind Virtual SAN does both – just saying.

Join Aidan Finn and Max Kolomyeytsev at this webinar dedicated to the use of Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) and APIs for Array Integration (VAAI). They will explain exactly how you can greatly enhance the storage system performance and increase VM density with Hyper-V and vSphere.
