StorMagic Will Update SvSAN to V5.1

Adding support for Hyper-V and bare metal recovery

StorMagic will release version 5.1 of its SvSAN at VMworld in San Francisco, CA.

It enables organizations to achieve branch office uptime and single-pane-of-glass storage management across both vSphere and Hyper-V environments. It also adds HA feature sets and monitoring capabilities.

Visitors to the StorMagic booth at VMworld will see representatives demonstrate the product, with evaluation copies available for download from the website after the event.

Added features include:

  • Support for Hyper-V. It supports both vSphere and Hyper-V environments, and allows users to manage the entire environment from a single pane of glass. As more users deploy server virtualization for their branch offices and remote locations, this adds flexibility and makes the transition to a vSphere, Hyper-V or mixed environment easier.
  • Bare Metal Recovery. It simplifies and automates the process of recovering a virtual storage appliance, rebuilding mirrored targets and replacing failed servers.
  • Performance monitoring enhancements. They collect and correlate I/O throughput statistics, presenting them in a graphical format, helping administrators troubleshoot bottleneck issues or identify trends and patterns.
  • Support for the VMware Atomic Test Set fundamental operation. ATS locks specific disk sectors, instead of an entire disk, to avoid disk contention issues in clusters during metadata updates.
  • VM and Linux support for SvSAN neutral storage host. The NSH can be installed as a service to an existing Linux server/VM, giving users additional deployment flexibility.

It's a software-only virtual storage appliance designed for enterprise organizations managing a distributed IT infrastructure where there is high risk of revenue loss or liability. It provides shared storage to distributed IT environments and enables organizations to achieve HA and other hypervisor features with lower CAPEX and OPEX investment than other storage solutions.
