StarWind Software Inc., an innovative provider of storage virtualization software and VM backup technology, announced today the release of the new StarWind iSCSI SAN & NAS V6 and VMware Backup Plug-in Release Candidate.
The new version of StarWind storage software is improved by a three-node High Availability (HA) architecture that completely eliminates single point of failure and ensures business continuity with 99.9999% uptime and 50% higher performance*. Now, a high availability device can use different types of StarWind devices for storing data such as deduplicated device, thin-provisioned snapshot and CDP device, or DiskBridge device.
StarWind iSCSI SAN & NAS v6 introduces the N+1 configuration that allows for building an on-site two/three-node HA cluster with off-site replication.

StarWind WAN acceleration technology is based on deduplication, snapshots, and compression, in which their combined power ensures 50x-100x reduction of transmitted data and allows for the use of a slow WAN connection.
