How to Prevent Unplanned Downtime in Retail Stores

Published On: 6th January 2020//1.7 min read//Tags: , , , , , , , , //

Ensuring high availability in retail stores is crucial, as unplanned downtime can result in loss of revenue and damage to your brand. However, it can be hard to find a solution that delivers 100% uptime without adding unnecessary complexity and costs.

StorMagic SvSAN is the easy way to eliminate downtime at retail stores. The lightweight virtual SAN software creates simple, highly available storage across two nodes, using any two x86 servers. It is an easy way to enable hyperconverged infrastructure in small sites, like retail stores.

SvSAN is the perfect solution for small sites that have limited space and onsite IT staff, and require 100% uptime for mission critical applications. It is the most cost-effective solution of its kind on the market, it is incredibly easy to deploy and allows 1,000 sites to be managed as easily as 1.

How does this look in action?

A large US-based retail chain has deployed SvSAN in around 3,000 of their stores – that’s a two node SvSAN cluster at every location. Their highly available system requires only four remote witnesses, which are strategically located around the country, providing quorum for all of the clusters, enabling two node high availability. Competing solutions would require 3,000 witnesses and a LOT more hardware to run.

If you’re attending the NRF Big Show in New York in January and are looking for a super low cost way to simplify the storage at your retail store then make sure you visit StorMagic in booth #1528 and talk to the team. We’ll be running meetings and live demos throughout the event and will be more than happy to show you how you can ensure 100% uptime in your retail stores with StorMagic SvSAN.

If you haven’t already registered for your ticket for the event, you can do so via their website. And if you’re interested in finding out more about SvSAN but can’t make it to the event, get in touch with the team at [email protected] to book a demo with one of our pre-sales engineers.
