Can hyperconvergence work at the edge?
Edge computing, remote offices, branch offices, small data centers, and IoT use cases are on the rise – and research suggests that growth in these areas isn’t due to slow down any time soon.
For use cases such as remote offices, the ideal solution is often a small data center with enough compute and storage to run local applications. The cloud – while appearing attractive – often isn’t a suitable solution due to latency, service interruptions and security concerns.
Challenges at the edge
The challenge facing the edge is how to provide compute and storage while at the same time offering a solution that is cost-effective and easy to manage remotely.
StorMagic’s SvSAN is a hyperconverged solution designed for the edge. The value for IT looking to equip edge locations is they can start with their current hardware, load the SvSAN software on two hypervisor servers, providing both a cost-effective and flexible approach to edge computing needs.
