New program can lower the annual cost of storage by at least 50%
BRISTOL, UNITED KINGDOM – 14 June, 2017 – StorMagic®, the software-defined storage company enabling hyperconverged infrastructure, today announced the availability of their pay-as-you-go virtual storage program for Cloud Service Providers (CSPs). StorMagic’s SvSAN eliminates the need for expensive external storage arrays by leveraging the internal disk drives of any two x86 servers and actively mirrors data to enable highly available shared storage and hyperconverged environments.
This new program, the StorMagic Cloud Partner Program, allows Cloud Service Providers to build public and private cloud offerings without the traditional upfront storage costs.
The key benefits of the Cloud Partner Program are:
- Lower OPEX and CAPEX by at least 50% – Eliminate the cost of physical arrays and with the new SvSAN subscription licensing, CSPs have access to true pay-as-you-go storage for their cloud infrastructure.
- Start small and scale with customer growth – Whether building a dedicated private or public multi-tenant cloud, there is no longer the need for huge upfront investments in storage. SvSAN enables both hyperconverged infrastructure or server SAN which can scale performance and capacity without downtime.
- Reduce setup and reporting time – CSPs can download and deploy an SvSAN environment in less than 60 minutes and simply add additional licenses as requirements scale. Using existing tools or the StorMagic GUI, simply report on monthly storage usage with a short online form.
“We’ve seen a 10-fold increase in performance on those servers running SvSAN – it used to be 50MB/second, now it’s 500-800MB/second – plus we see outstanding hardware redundancy on a two-node cluster,” said Anders Kringstad, Solutions Architect at ITsjefen. “Redundancy is ridiculous, SvSAN gives us 5 9s, the gold-standard of redundancy. We’ve built a solution with SvSAN that offers our customers a 10-fold improvement in performance, and at half the cost.”
