StorMagic’s Witness as-a-Service (WaaS) product was recognized as the “Overall Data Storage Solution of the Year” in the 2021 Data Breakthrough Awards. We are so thrilled to be celebrating this achievement, and to be acknowledged as a leader in the data storage space!

The Data Breakthrough Awards recognize the best companies, products and services in this new era of digital data, and identify industry products that “BREAK THROUGH the data clutter”. This year, 1,750 nominations were submitted from all over the globe, with StorMagic in great company – some of the other category winners include Google Cloud, IBM, Informatica and Microsoft. 

StorMagic SvSAN’s witness is a lightweight, incredibly resilient feature that enables genuine high availability between two server nodes. Available as a cloud subscription service, purchased on top of an SvSAN license, StorMagic Witness as-a-Service (WaaS) is part of a suite of features that make up StorMagic Cloud Services. Instead of installing the witness on hardware, an organization can simply connect their SvSAN clusters to the WaaS feature provided by StorMagic and manage everything from one location, with nothing to maintain.

StorMagic WaaS delivers 100% uptime for edge and small datacenter environments and supports up to 1,000 locations per instance. It enables customers to eliminate downtime, simplify their operations, and reduce IT costs. While competing solutions typically require three or more nodes to support high availability clusters, StorMagic WaaS only requires two, reducing hardware expenses by at least 33%. Additionally, the functionality of WaaS is all carried out from the cloud – with no hardware to maintain, and no software to install.
