What does StorMagic do?

StorMagic is solving the world’s edge data problems. We help organizations store, protect, and use their data at and from the edge. Our Forever Data solutions ensure data is always protected and available, no matter the type or location, to provide value anytime, anywhere… even forever.

Our solutions can operate from the harshest edge environments to pristine datacenters. Our storage and security products are flexible, robust, simple to use, and cost-effective, without sacrificing enterprise-class features, for organizations with one to thousands of sites.

  • SvSAN is a highly available two-node virtual SAN designed for hyperconverged edge and small datacenter sites.
  • SvKMS is an encryption key manager for edge, datacenter, and cloud.
  • ARQvault VMS is a full-featured video management system that excels in the use and retention of surveillance video.

StorMagic customers around the world have deployed our solutions in thousands of sites to store, protect, and use their edge data and significantly lower costs.

Across many industries, including retail stores, factories, hospitals, universities, and even wind farms and oil rigs, we are helping organizations tackle the modernization and optimization of their IT infrastructure. StorMagic was founded in 2006 with a vision to simplify the storage and security landscape with solutions that minimize hardware and do not require specialist skills to deploy and manage. We enable organizations to free themselves from cost and complexity – physical SANs, HSMs (hardware security modules), and other legacy hardware.

Unlike our competitors, who try to overcome the limitations of edge environments by forcing customers to adopt over-provisioned datacenter-class solutions, we have specifically designed our software for demanding environments where resources, space, and budgets are limited. Our product strategy is to deliver the most advanced edge data software platform so customers can forever store, protect, and use their data at and from the edge.

Keep your edge with StorMagic – the Forever Data company.
