Marketing is taking a break today. Paul Woodward is a systems engineer and well-known blogger who agreed to do an independent review of SvSAN 6.2 with Data Encryption. So we gave him a free trial of our product, access to documentation, and our support email account and away he went.

You can read the full review on Gestalt IT’s website.

Key take away points from his review:

  • Performance: Paul noted “positive results” during his performance testing and said there were “nominal differences” when encryption was turned on.
  • High availability: SvSAN was run through multiple failure scenarios and there was no impact noticed.
  • Support: Paul encountered a couple of setup issues that were quickly addressed by StorMagic’s support staff

Paul’s summary: “I was impressed with my experience with StorMagic’s SvSAN. From no prior exposure to running production ready datastores in approximately an hour. The solution performed well under duress. Overall, StorMagic SvSAN is an excellent choice for those in need of a solid remote office/branch office solution that is reliable and cost effective.”
