Standard Edition includes everything that you need in a software-defined storage solution to configure for the lowest-cost, highly available infrastructure.
Advanced Edition provides highly sophisticated features such as Predictive Storage Caching which utilizes patent-pending algorithms to unleash the full power of memory and hybrid disk configurations. It also includes Data Encryption which delivers military-grade security and eliminates the need for expensive OS or hypervisor-level encryption.

Compare your alternatives
Every viable solution to prevent split brain requires a remote witness or neutral storage host. What sets StorMagic apart is:
SvSAN requires 1 remote witness for up to 1,000 sites. Alternative solutions require 1 for each site
SvSAN requires 512MBs per remote witness. Alternative solutions require up to 8GBs per witness, with 1,000 sites that’s 16,000 times more memory
SvSAN requires 9Kbps per mirrored data store. Alternatives require up to 1.5Mbps
SvSAN remote witness can tolerate latencies up to 3000ms; alternatives 500ms. The witness can be anywhere in the world
SvSAN requires 2GB per host when using SSD caching. Alternatives require 32GB per host
