  • KernSafe

    Don't know if I should place it here on in Windows 2008r2, but anyway;

    Someone have try KernSafe with Windows 2008r2 server, it look for me like a nice and chea solution for a small business who can't afford expensive Dell or HP SAN for their HA solutions. I'm interested to know if their SAN raid-1 is working fine ...

    Why do you want to pay money if both Microsoft and StarWind have free versions without limit for served storage capacity and number of incoming connections (kernsafe has one connection in free version so useless for clustering)?

      You can configure MS target for failover cluster (so basically you have HA, of course if you have redundant switches on shared SAS):

      and StarWind has caching and deduplication built-in into free version (makes magic in a virtualized environments where quite a lot of user data overlap):

      Also if you're ready to waste a box on a target (BTW, Windows license is not free) why don't you consider Nexenta as a n option? Well, free edition has it's limit of 18TB but it's HUGE!

      Do you still want to PAY for your software SAN?
