StarWind Simple, Flexible, Scalable Storage with Max Kolomyeytsev and Anton Kolomyeytsev
Max Kolomyeytsev, Director of Product Management, introduces StarWind. He discusses the company’s background and current vision.
Anton Kolomyeytsev, CEO, Chief Architect & Co-Founder, proceeds to give details on the StarWind Storage appliance. This includes an architectural overview, as well as a look at their roadmap. This includes Starwind SA serving not only as a SAN/NAS, but also as control nodes in a massive scale-out storage cluster, aggregating NVMf, Lustre, and Ceph, while delivering it to storage consumers using a unified storage fabric.
StarWind Fault-Tolerant Storage Demo with Max Kolomyeytsev
Max Kolomyeytsev, Director of Product Management, demonstrates using StarWind for configuration of FT storage. He then compares local flash performance to using StarWind when mirroring flash, illustrating minimal performance loss with their synchronous replication approach.

StarWind and AcloudA: Stairway to Cloud with Anton Kolomyeytsev and Max Kolomyeytsev
Anton Kolomyeytsev, CEO, Chief Architect & Co-Founder, shows the hardware for StarWind’s cloud gateway, developed together with AcloudA. He demonstrates the hardware, and gives an overview of the implementation. It essentially provides a fully transparent gateway which would be compatible and interoperable with all OS’s, Hypervisors, and SDS stacks.
Max Kolomyeytsev, Director of Product Management, gives a demonstration of the cloud gateway, using a Microsoft S2D-based cluster. He shows how users can build a S2D cluster with local flash used as a performance tier, with the AcloudA cloud gateway connected to external cloud storage to serve as a scalable capacity layer.
StarWind and Veeam VTL and Cloud Replication Demo with Max Kolomyeytsev
Max Kolomyeytsev, Director of Product Management, demonstrates using the StarWind Virtual Tape Library with existing backup environments and implements a Disk-to-Disk-to-Cloud backup approach. With StarWind, this can be done without changing the existing backup software or DR strategy.
