This week, StorMagic announced that the most flexible and cost effective hyperconverged solution on the market just got a whole lot more flexible, and cost effective.

SvSAN is now fully compatible with Linux KVM hypervisors, available on Red Hat and CentOS distributions. You can now deploy a highly available two node HCI solution with hardware, software and maintenance for under $10,000!

We’ve added KVM compatibility to give edge sites more flexibility and control over their virtual servers and storage. Fast, scripted deployment and step-by-step integration guides ensure deploying SvSAN onto a KVM hypervisor is hassle-free. Instead of a complex, DIY process, work through a simple checklist to get up and running.

Avoiding the “hypervisor tax” can often come at its own cost, with many open-source environments requiring intensive management. SvSAN on KVM benefits from centralized node and cluster management through oVirt or Red Hat Virtualization (RHV).

While a KVM hypervisor may not have the full suite of features found in a commercially available hypervisor that are designed for the datacenter, VM high availability, failover, migration and snapshots are all in there.. If additional features are required, the open-source community contains an extensive range of third party plugins to allow the solution to be tailored to precise requirements.

SvSAN is a lightweight virtual SAN, requiring just two x86 servers to create a highly available environment. Alongside the savings realized from a free hypervisor, organizations can significantly reduce both CapEx and OpEx by virtualizing storage with SvSAN on a KVM hypervisor. There’s no forced upgrades or development paths, and no feature-heavy software to purchase.

The lightest, leanest hyperconverged infrastructure solution on the market: a complete virtualized edge solution, all for $10,000.
