Brian Hamel, vice president and general manager, Lenovo North America Enterprise Business Group, said: “By partnering with Lenovo and leveraging our portfolio of x86 systems, StorMagic and its SvSAN virtual storage capabilities is well positioned to provide remote office/branch office clients and small business customers a compelling combination of performance and reliability.”
StorMagic’s SvSAN software-defined storage platform enables enterprises to eliminate downtime of business critical applications through virtualized shared storage. Starting at $5,000, this solution delivers a cost effective and highly available environment for retail, banking, education and hospitality customers with multi-site offices.
The solution also delivers up to a 40 percent decrease in total cost of ownership through reduced power, cooling and maintenance costs and a minimized need for dedicated IT resources.
Both SvSAN and Lenovo’s servers are scalable as storage needs grow and can support multiple hypervisor platforms to streamline integration into existing infrastructure. The converged solution also provides a standardized management interface that allows multiple two-server shared storage bundles to be managed and provisioned quickly and simply either locally, or remotely, from a central location.
The price of hyperconverged Solution from StorMagic and Lenovo, which is now available in North America, is $5,000.
