With the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML), the need for computation at the edge is increasing rapidly. Edge computing is becoming more popular around the world for businesses that require compute resources to be closer to data sources, such as remote offices, manufacturing plants, oil refineries, and wind farms. These organizations produce sensitive, valuable data that must be easily accessible and protected at all times — which can be easier said than done at the edge.
This is where StorMagic, Zerto, and HPE’s edge-to-edge workload protection solution comes into play. As data creation and compute resources continue to move to and grow at the edge, we’ve teamed up to deliver a solution that lowers the costs of and raises the level of protection for edge data.
The joint solution consists of the following:
- StorMagic SvSAN: SvSAN is a virtual SAN — a software-defined solution designed to run on two or more servers and deliver highly available shared storage. Perfect for edge computing environments, the technology eliminates the need for physical SANs, reducing the amount of hardware needed in IT environments. SvSAN is designed to be very simple to install and manage, whether deployed as part of a hyperconverged solution or as a storage-only target for any server environment.
- The Zerto Platform: The Zerto Platform, based on a foundation of continuous data protection (CDP), brings together disaster recovery, backup, and data mobility into a single, scalable cloud data management and data protection solution across on-premises, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments. Benefit from a unified user experience across all workloads and reduce your TCO by replacing point solutions, tools, and required hardware with Zerto’s scalable, software-only platform.
- HPE ProLiant Servers: HPE ProLiant Servers deliver superior flexibility, reliability, and performance. They provide additional value to edge customers through intelligent automation, security, and optimization. Their fast and secure infrastructure helps increase IT staff productivity and accelerates service delivery within edge environments.
Together, SvSAN and the Zerto platform protect workloads at the edge. Combined with HPE’s high performing, secure and versatile ProLiant servers, this solution provides even more advanced continuous data protection, and is ideally suited to meet edge demands in environments with limited space and IT resources. The full solution is now offered through the HPE Complete portfolio of validated solutions.
