What do you think of StorMagic SvSAN?

It’s only been a matter of a few weeks since I saw StorMagic at VFD4 and they delivered a great solution aimed at ROBO. Today they’ve made another ground breaking announcement (stop the press !!) Today StorMagic and VMware have announced a partnership which means customers can now benefit from ordering a VMware ROBO license (sold in packs of 25) and this can be coupled with SvSAN from StorMagic. This effectively means that the partnership allows VMware to recommend the SvSAN software as part of its ROBO pack!! The ROBO pack is available from VMware or its resellers and the SvSAN can be purchased from StorMagic and its resellers. BOOM !! Essentially the solution revolves around providing shared storage for a 2 node setup with local disk providing all the great features such as…

What is StorMagic SvSAN?

StorMagic SvSAN simplifies storage at the edge. It is a virtual SAN, virtualizing the internal storage of two servers and creating an active-active mirror that ensures an exact copy of data resides on both servers at any time. Needing just two nodes in each cluster, using any x86 server, any CPU and any storage combination, SvSAN gives you the flexibility to deploy lightweight, low cost highly available storage as you wish. 

A single, incredibly lightweight witness provides quorum to as many as 1000 SvSAN clusters and they can all be deployed and managed from a central location. Stretch your SvSAN clusters across entire cities for added resiliency. Deploy on VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V or Linux KVM hypervisors and avoid vendor lock-in. Leverage sophisticated caching algorithms when superior performance is required. If security is a priority, implement StorSecure - SvSAN's integrated encryption and key management feature. And if redundancy is a concern, deploy three nodes per cluster to withstand two node failures and still keep your applications online.
