For the greatest flexibility and lowest cost consider building your own hyperconverged system. Combining compute, storage and networking into one convenient package is an effective way to reduce your IT footprint and dramatically lower costs. A virtual storage appliance is the key enabler to achieving this by delivering highly-available shared storage as the core component of a cost-effective hyperconverged system.
Many IT teams have the resources and skills in-house or through their trusted partners to architect and build the systems needed today, with the ability to grow with your needs in the future. With SvSAN, we enable IT departments to build the lowest-cost, highly-available hyperconverged system using your preferred server, disk drive and networking components.
Leverage any industry standard server and any configuration
One of the key benefits of SvSAN is that virtually any combination of server, networking and storage components are supported. You can purchase any new x86 class server or even re-purpose an existing one collecting dust on a shelf. As long as the server can recognize the storage or network adapter – so can SvSAN. We support any type of spinning disk (SATA, FC, SAS), solid-state disk (SSD), memory and network connection. Furthermore, SvSAN supports three different hypervisors – vSphere, Hyper-V and Linux KVM.
Build to your exact requirements and avoid over-provisioning
In many cases, deploying an off-the-shelf appliance solution has either too much processing power or storage for your environment and can be a waste of budget dollars. When adding more of these overprovisioned appliances as your needs grow, the problem gets even worse. With StorMagic we can help you accurately understand the performance and capacity you need and configure systems appropriately. This saves money now and in the future as your needs change.
