KYIV, Ukraine, Aug 14, 2007 -- Rocket Division Software announces the release of a free version of their iSCSI target software, StarWind and a free version of the iSCSI Initiator, StarPort. StarWind, which runs on Microsoft Windows, allows any server or workstation (Windows, Linux, UNIX etc) to access centralized storage, providing a cost-effective and easy-to-customize method for implementing and gaining all the benefits of a storage area network (SAN).

The free version of StarWind provides up to 2TB of storage capacity. Customers requiring enhanced features such as snapshots, replication and additional storage capacity can choose between the Standard edition for $395 and the Professional edition for $995. With the addition of the free StarPort iSCSI initiator customers have a single point of support for both the server side storage SAN and the client side iSCSI agent.

"A free fully functional iSCSI target and initiator allow customers to try iSCSI storage in a small production environment before deciding on the best configuration for a more robust enterprise solution," said Anton Kolomyeytsev, CEO of Rocket Division Software. "The free StarWind & StarPort iSCSI storage solution provides more than enough functionality to be extremely useful right out of the box for anyone that needs a better way to manage and backup up to 2TB of data; and offers an excellent complement for virtual machines such as VMware and Microsoft's Virtual Server."

An update release of the full version of StarWind and StarPort is also available which includes full support for VMware ESX. Business of all sizes can benefit from a simpler way to perform backups, disaster recovery and simplify storage management. StarWind and StarPort support industry standard servers and various Microsoft Windows operating systems.

The full version of StarWind is also available as a SDK (software development kit) which is ideal for OEM customers that require a software-based iSCSI target for Microsoft Windows. The SDK provides a full featured iSCSI target API allowing easy customizations for vendors interested in implementing their own iSCSI storage.
