What does StorMagic do?
StorMagic makes virtual SANs simple for edge computing. Our product, SvSAN, is designed for large organizations with thousands of sites and companies running small datacenters that require a highly available, two-server solution that is simple, cost-effective and flexible.
StorMagic SvSAN removes the need for a physical SAN in some of the world’s most demanding environments by converting the disk, flash and memory of two servers into a virtual SAN. It is perfect for deployments across any number of remote or branch offices as well as IoT projects that require a small IT footprint as well as the up-time and performance necessary to process large quantities of data at the edge of the enterprise. Our typical customers have distributed IT operations in locations like retail stores, branch offices, factories, warehouses and even wind farms and oil rigs. In all of these deployments, SvSAN enables small hyper-converged clusters with an unrivalled level of simplicity and affordability.
SvSAN integrates seamlessly with existing virtualized environments and enables centralized deployment and management for anything from one to thousands of sites, removing the need for dedicated specialist IT staff at each site and significantly lowering the cost of management. SvSAN is deployed by over a thousand customers across 72 countries and is available as a pre-configured hyperconverged solution through both Cisco and Lenovo, as well as through our network of channel partners around the world.
StorMagic was founded in 2006 by two experienced storage entrepreneurs with the vision to find the simplest, most cost-effective way to store and manage data through software. The founders realized that if data was stored within servers instead of a SAN, and was synchronously mirrored to other servers and presented as a virtual SAN, then end users’ total cost could be lowered dramatically. With this architecture, data would be both stored and processed on the same platform, which is now known as hyper-converged infrastructure and is increasingly seen as a key tool in any CTO’s armoury for efficient infrastructure management.
