CIO Applications Magazine recently announced its Top 25 IoT Solution Providers of 2017, and StorMagic has been included in the list.
Software-defined storage has a key part to play in the adoption and expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT). The sheer volume of data generated by IoT applications continues to rise unabated and the storage of this data is now becoming a pressing issue for most organizations. Complicating matters even more, organizations with operations in remote locations or limited by poor or unreliable infrastructure have an even harder time building reliable storage systems.
StorMagic was recognised by CIO Applications as a top IoT solution provider due to SvSAN’s low cost and lightweight design, making it an ideal solution allowing enterprises to virtualize their storage. As a virtual SAN, SvSAN ensures that organizations can avoid the costly deployment and upkeep of a physical SAN at each location, preventing costs from spiralling out of control for multi-site deployments. Similarly, SvSAN’s flexibility allows it to be deployed on any industry standard server. As a hardware agnostic solution, organizations have the choice of repurposing existing servers for SvSAN or designing a new architecture that fits their exact needs without having to overprovision.
The rise of IoT underlines the need for organizations to be prepared for increasing volumes of data. Relying on costly, overly-complex solutions to deal with this problem will create additional issues in the medium term. These issues can be easily avoided by forward-planning with a simple, cost effective and flexible virtual SAN solution such as SvSAN.
