Keeping store apps and data always available

The Ideal Solution for In-Store Computing and Storage

For retailers, in-store infrastructure can be complicated and expensive. Large retail chains suffer from spiraling costs and complexity as solutions are deployed across hundreds or even thousands of stores. Smaller retailers may have lower store counts, but face their own difficulties with limited budgets and resources. SvSAN provides the simplest and most lightweight virtual SAN (vSAN) solution on the market, significantly reducing costs per site. This makes it a perfect hyperconverged storage solution for the retail industry.

Keep your POS, stock control, and all your in-store applications highly available with SvSAN. All you need are two x86 servers at each location, with very light server hardware and networking requirements.

“Sheetz has been able to centrally manage multiple in-store applications quickly and affordably and drastically reduce the number of hardware failures with StorMagic… Thanks to some automated processes and the relatively seamless conversions, we’ve escalated the timeline to standardize on SvSAN across all of our convenience stores.”
