Following the Windosw Server 2016 Ignite announcement, it was followed by numerous reviews and blog posts. But even after the pre-tests, the question remains: will the new features make life easier for Hyper-V administrators? Is the new Hyper-V just an update (upgrade) of the previous version or is it a complete “revolution”?

What can you expect from Powershell-Direct, Secure VMsStorage Spaces Direct, and Replica devices, and do you really need new Hyper-V host hardware?

2. Live webinar: Building storage space to ensure usability and resilience


July 1 at 9 PT / 12 pm ET

Speaker: Jon Toigo, Toigo Partners International LLC

When software-defined storage includes a model for building data storage infrastructure behind servers and a model for designing ready-made hyper-integrated server / storage device nodes, IT designers face many options for creating an efficient, cost-effective platform for data maintenance. Equally important, however, is the design of storage infrastructure for high availability – to protect against hardware and software failures – and resilience to ensure the availability of data in the event of disasters with a wider geographical footprint.

In this Brown Bag webinar, IT-SENSE editor and manager Jon Toigo begins by discussing the requirements for building a bulletproof storage infrastructure using software-defined and hyperconverged elements.

Star Kolind software warehouse specialist Max Kolomyeytsev connects him to the Between Two LUNs segment to talk about the availability / resilience of StarWind technology and the flexibility of its latest hyperconverged infrastructure product, developed with xByte Technologies.

3. SAN must die!

Do you hate SANs when we hate them? No, seriously? They were a great place to store your grandfather’s Oracle database, but why the hell would anyone use them to store images on a virtual machine? SANs are never designed to handle the virtualization load! In addition, with today’s high-capacity spindles, flash memory with PCIe connectivity, and a 40GB Ethernet cable are all commodities, it’s simpler, faster, and cheaper to use virtual shared storage for virtualization. Get a cure for PDOs now, here.

5. Another StarWind success!


StarWind has recently acquired Citrix XenServer 6.5 certification, supplementing the certificate list and addingVMware (vSphere 6.0 & vSphere 5.5 certificates) and Microsoft (Windows Server 2012 R2).

this means that StarWind The Virtual SAN is eligible for support services from Microsoft, VMware, and Citrix as part of the HCL.

To achieve such recognition, StarWind Virtual SAN passed a series of tests to demonstrate product compatibility as part of common solutions from these vendors.

It’s fair to say that StarWind now has all the “MUST HAVE” certifications.
