Press release from: StarWind Software, Inc.

Wakefield, MA – August 15, 2013 - StarWind Software, storage virtualization software provider, and Microsoft Ukraine, the Ukrainian branch of the multinational corporation that delivers the world’s leading software solutions, introduce an exclusive joint offer – a solution for business virtualization. This offer enables customers to accelerate physical-to-virtual migration, provides reliable data protection, simplifies storage management and reduces overall IT costs.

The affordable offer from Microsoft Ukraine and StarWind allows customers to buy two Windows Server 2012 licenses with a 15% discount, and a StarWind Native SAN for Hyper-V license with a 50% discount.

StarWind Native SAN for Hyper-V is a software product that creates iSCSI-based shared storage for Hyper-V virtual environments. The software is installed on two Hyper-V servers and requires only one StarWind Native SAN for Hyper-V license to create a fault-tolerant cluster. With this solution customers get a wide range of functions that enable business continuity and disaster recovery without external data storage or additional hardware. StarWind SAN fully supports Microsoft technologies, such as Live Migration and HA Clustering.

Microsoft Ukraine and StarWind offer two options to suit the scale of the business and customer requirements: SMBs are recommended the Windows Server 2012 Standard Edition (which allows two VMs on one hypervisor) and StarWind Native SAN for Hyper-V with 4TB storage capacity; large companies are recommended the Windows Server 2012 Datacenter Edition (which allows an unlimited number of virtual machines) and StarWind Native SAN for Hyper-V with unlimited storage capacity.

This offer is available only through the distribution network of MUK Corporate Group till September 15, 2013.

“Together with Microsoft Ukraine we are very pleased to introduce a powerful and affordable solution for business virtualization,” says Phil Montgomery, StarWind Software CEO. “We are sure this solution will be popular. And hope that in a while it will become available in other European countries as well as in North America.”

“Affordable Virtualization is a unique solution for the Ukrainian IT market,” says Roman Shovkun, StarWind Software Vice President of Sales in EMEA. “Earlier, virtualization was estimated to cost tens of thousands of dollars, and only large companies could afford it. With our joint solution, virtualization becomes affordable for everyone.”

"This collaboration with Microsoft, the world leader in software development, is strategically important and high-priority for us. This joint solution demonstrates the quality of our products, increases the credibility of our company and raises brand awareness," says Irina Makarova, StarWind Software Marketing Vice-President in EMEA.

“This offer will be of particular interest to customers who want to protect their data, take advantage of virtualization and fault-tolerance, as well as get up-to-date powerful tools with zero hardware investment,” says Dmitry Turchin, Microsoft Ukraine Head of Business Group Servers.
