What does StorMagic do?
StorMagic makes virtual SANs simple for edge computing. Our product, SvSAN, is designed specifically for small and large enterprises with one to thousands of locations that require highly available compute and storage at the lowest possible cost.
Underpinned by simplicity, cost-effectiveness and flexibility, 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. Perfect for deployments across any number of remote or branch offices as well as IoT projects that require a small footprint as well as the uptime 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 hyperconverged clusters with an unrivaled 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 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 later became known as hyperconverged infrastructure.

“StorMagic’s SvSAN enables us to cost effectively implement simple, 2-server highly available systems with minimal hardware requirements.”
Uwe Fischer | Head of Asset Information Systems | E.ON
“We have 23 production lines that need to remain operational day and night. If anything should go wrong and a robot stops working, it has a huge impact on our business. With SvSAN we have the same quality as we had in the datacentre at less expense than vSAN.”
