IT budgets have never been tighter for many organizations. However, it’s important to have the ability to meet the needs of infrastructure scaling while keeping critical data safe and accessible.

Cloud services have become a viable and popular option for many, but come with their own concerns. For example, do you have enough bandwidth to access the data held in the cloud? Are there any privacy or security concerns with the data?
Other non-Cloud options often considered include read and write caching devices with public or private cloud and EFSS.
Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) has traditionally been seen as too expensive for smaller and distributed enterprises, with many of the options available tied firmly to specific vendors. At StorMagic we aim to break those ties – working with a variety of partners and delivering cost-effective hyper-converged infrastructure that’s ready to deploy. We believe in the power of choice, and with SvSAN the choice is yours.
If you’re the designated ‘branch modernizer’ within your organization, here are some thought-provoking questions you could be asking:
- What kind of workloads will you be running in the branch office?
- Do you have qualified IT support staff in branch, are they versed in specific tasks or do they have wider technical knowledge?
- Is integrated and primary backup storage important to your organization?
- How can users access the data?
When it comes to HCI, we have a range of resources to keep you informed and to help you make the decision that suits your organization best.
