  1. Yes I’m been using the so-called StarWind Software server in my Windows Vista, could say almost nine months now and my I tell that is a great iSCSI SAN Storage even better that Windows Storage Server or Openfiler for my experience

  2. I'm agree. That's why i put it on top of the list.

  3. I use the Windows Storage Server 2008 and the Open-E DSS v6 from Open-E ( Both do work fine with Hyper-V R2 ;-)

  4. Nice share.

    thank you for adding more in the lists.
