StorMagic SvSAN paired with Microsoft Hyper-V provides simple to manage and reliable shared storage without the need for expensive external storage arrays
Microsoft Hyper-V helps reduce capital expenditure and operational costs by consolidating more workloads onto fewer servers. This allows you to increase the agility, efficiency and flexibility of your on-premises IT resources.
Storage virtualization is the pooling of physical storage from multiple network storage devices into a single device managed from a central console. SvSAN is StorMagic’s software-defined storage solution that enables you to simply and cost effectively virtualize your storage and modernize your IT infrastructure.
StorMagic SvSAN, installed as a virtual storage appliance, alongside Microsoft Hyper-V, enables you to benefit from virtual server features including:
- Live Migration
- Dynamic Optimization
- Failover Cluster configuration – providing Hyper-V high availability
Together, SvSAN and Hyper-V enable organizations to expand virtual machine mobility and flexibility, handle multi-tenant environments, and build scale.
