Business Challenge

One of the leading retailers for food and consumer goods in western Canada was looking for a way to cost-effectively set up an easy to manage virtual server environment for 120 stores which would:

  • effectively consolidate each store’s servers with a shared storage solution
  • provide high-availability as they are a 24/7 business



Having evaluated various solutions, StorMagic’s SvSAN emerged as the most cost-effective solution, giving the retailer the simplicity and high availability they were looking for.


Why StorMagic

Cost-effective – SvSAN requires no additional storage adapters and it virtualizes existing storage within the ESX/i servers to optimize utilization.

SvSAN enables enterprise caliber features – such as application clustering and dynamic resource scheduling.

Simplicity – SvSan’s integration with VMware vCenter simplifies the creation, management and provisioning of datastores for multi-site environments

High availability – SvSAN’s 2-server synchronous mirroring eliminates single-point-of-failure.
