Starwind: setting up a highly available storage

0

Presentation

StarWind Virtual SAN is software that turns Windows into an iSCSI target server. The advantage of StarWind is that it can be used to put the storage in high availability by installing two StarWind servers, because this is managed at the software level, it can be used with any type of storage (SAN, DAS) and it is independent of the material used.

It is also possible to install StarWind on Hyper-V servers in order to have a hyperconverged solution, with replication of hypervisor storage. The disadvantage of this solution is that the available space is divided by the number of nodes that make up the cluster.

In this tutorial, we will see how to set up an iSCSI volume with starwind that we will present to a server, then in a second time how to put this volume in high availability.

The goal of this tutorial is to get to the representation below:

The IP addresses and the names of the servers do not correspond to the LAB written below but to the video available at the end of this tutorial.
