Customers take advantage of NVMe-oF to dramatically increase performance while reducing storage footprint and management costs in Microsoft Windows environments.


June 2, 2021, Beverly, MA - StarWind, a leading provider of hyperconverged and cutting edge storage virtualization solutions announced today its partnership with Pavilion Data Systems, the universally unmatched leader in data storage.

Customers with Microsoft Windows applications, such as MS SQL Server, are taking advantage of the StarWind NVMe-oF/RDMA Initiator and the Pavilion HyperParallel Data Platform™, the most performant, dense, scalable, and flexible data storage platform in the universe, to accelerate performance, recover lost CPU cycles, reduce their storage footprint, and cut management costs in half by moving to the NVMe-oF and RDMA storage solution.

By using the Pavilion HyperParallel Data Platform with the Starwind NVMe-oF Initiator, a leading investment firm was able to reduce their storage management costs by 50%, while recovering 30% of their CPU utilization by switching from a CPU-heavy legacy storage solution. Another customer, a global information and insights company, doubled the amount of SQL transactions per second, while reducing storage management costs by 60% and their storage footprint by 50%.

“The Pavilion HyperParallel Data Platform already delivers to customers up to 120GB/s of read performance and over 2PB of capacity, per system.” said, VR Satish, Co-Founder and CTO, Pavilion Data Systems, “By working with StarWind, that performance is now available to Windows environments with the ultra-low latency. This is particularly important to organizations that use MS SQL applications, have video editing workstations, and other high-performance Windows applications.”

“StarWind NVMe-oF Initiator for Windows is the first software-only solution that satisfies the tremendous demand for ultra-low latency NVMe storage access driven by companies at the cutting edge of technology, finance, live sciences, and M&E verticals. Speed, latency, and efficient CPU utilization required by their applications are far beyond what legacy FC and iSCSI storage protocols can offer.” said, Max Kolomyeytsev, CTO, StarWind, “I’m extremely excited to see the disruptive technologies our customers are able to deliver with the help of StarWind and Pavilion solutions”
