We are very pleased to enter into co-branding agreement with Paragon Software Group who has the great authority and worldwide recognition in the data storage market, said Artem Berman, Chief Executive Officer of StarWind Software.

Paragon StarWind iSCSI SAN & NAS enables an N+1 configuration that allows for building an on-site two or three-node HA cluster with off-site replication. The built-in WAN replication feature assists in the creation of a disaster recovery site that can be located miles away from the main datacenter. The WAN acceleration technology is based on deduplication, snapshots, and compression, in which their combined power ensures 50x-100x reduction of transmitted data and allows for the use of slower WAN connections.
