One of the greatest challenges of multisite organizations is to
ensure the uptime and availability of business-critical applications
in local and distributed IT environments. This becomes even
more challenging as organizations strive to reduce capital and
operating expenses.
This is now achievable through combining the leading, softwaredefined storage solution from StorMagic with the latest in server
technology from Lenovo™. This joint solution allows businesses to
deploy a data storage infrastructure that remains highly available.
SvSAN’s Unique Features and Benefits
• Abstraction of storage services away from traditional
storage arrays, making it a key component of a
software-defined storage strategy
•
Elimination of the need for a physical Storage Area
Network (SAN)
•
Virtualization of internal disk drives and external, directattached storage arrays (DAS) to enable storage sharing
among multiple servers
•
High availability in a simple two-server solution (the
only software that can do so)
•
At least 33% lower capital acquisition cost for
distributed environments
•
Over 40% lower TCO through reduced power and
cooling costs, decreased sparing and maintenance
costs, and minimized need for dedicated IT resources
•
Maximized application uptime
•
Centralized storage management of entire
multisite infrastructure
•
Rapid, scripted deployments and updates of multiple
sites simultaneously with automated provisioning
•
Optimal flexibility, as SvSAN is hypervisor agnostic
and can scale as storage requirements grow
•
Fast resynchronization through restore capability,
enabling users to replace a failed server with a new
one and automatically rebuild their environment
What is StorMagic SvSAN?
SvSAN is a software solution which enables organizations to
eliminate downtime of business-critical applications where this
disruption directly equates to a loss in service and revenue.
SvSAN ensures high availability through a virtualized shared
storage platform so that business-critical applications remain
operational. StorMagic’s customers have anywhere from a single
site to thousands of remote sites where local IT resources are not
available and uptime of applications is a must.
SvSAN provides an intuitive, standardized management interface
that allows multiple SvSANs to be managed and provisioned
quickly and simply. SvSAN’s efficient and flexible architecture
and its modular approach enable it to meet the ever-changing
and increasingly demanding storage requirements within
any organization.
