We know from TV; Russian bears can ride a bicycle in a circus and play an accordion to avoid being tazed & beaten to death. Some drunk punk told us bears are good in rocket science as well. Rocket science = high performance storage, hyperconvergence, and all that jazz. To either confirm or deny this statement we decided to give StarWind Virtual SAN scalability and performance a try. Run it, test it and compare it to a big guy Microsoft with Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) who’s our current favorite race horse, and a bunch of losers & cocksuckers (VMware vSAN, DellEMC ScaleIO & Nutanix) as well. So… Does StarWind suck or blow? Spit or swallow?

Pretrial detention due to possible relapse
Measure the 4-node VMware vSAN hyperconverged cluster scalability using vSAN datastore comprised out of 8 Intel SSD DC P370 drives. For this goal, we’ll keep increasing the vSAN datastore load by increasing the VMs number till we reach the saturation point where performance growth stops or till we hit the 12 VMs limit.
