StorMagic, the software-defined storage company enabling hyper-converged infrastructure announced the launch of SvSAN 6 this week. With the launch of Version 6 StorMagic will, for the first time, offer SvSAN in a Standard and Advanced Edition. Both will be available globally now that StorMagic is a Preferred Solution Partner within the Cisco Solutions Partner Program and via the company’s OEM agreement with Cisco.
SvSAN 6 is the most affordable way for companies to take advantage of the very latest hyper-converged infrastructure in a lean IT environment. Version 6 enables large organisations with remote or branch offices, or smaller businesses with more modest IT infrastructure and budget to take advantage of advanced storage caching features that enable the perfect balance of flexibility, efficiency and performance, while also future-proofing their IT infrastructure.
“StorMagic SvSAN is an important part of Cisco’s UCS solutions portfolio that helps us address use cases for enterprise remote or branch offices for our customers,” said Siva Sivakumar, director UCS Solutions, Computing Systems Platform Group at Cisco. “The combination of SvSAN 6 and Cisco UCS is well suited for customers seeking enterprise-class resiliency, strong performance and cost requirements.”
“This major new release of SvSAN represents a significant step forward and ensures that StorMagic leads the market by delivering a set of advanced storage features that have not previously been available with this level of simplicity and affordability,” said Hans O’Sullivan, CEO of StorMagic. “We are delighted to be working with Cisco in bringing to market Version 6 of SvSAN with Cisco UCS to deliver next generation software defined storage with unprecedented flexibility, efficiency, performance and simplicity.”
“Blackned has deployed StorMagic SvSAN with Cisco UCS C-Series Servers extensively, with our customers enjoying a robust and resilient solution in their remote sites whilst obtaining significant cost savings we could not deliver with traditional methods. We are delighted to see advanced features within SvSAN 6, which we plan to take advantage of in the coming months,” said Bernd Maier, Team Leader Military Systems, Blackned.
