StorMagic’s virtual SAN solution was chosen for its ease of use, price and fast installation process with minimal downtime required.
Eugen Forschner previously used HPE MSA, a storage array, as a physical SAN to store application data from construction, production, office, CRM and SQL databases. In the search for a replacement solution, HA was a key requirement, to ensure 24×7 operations and achieve high percent uptime.
“StorMagic SvSAN delivers 100% uptime and lets us achieve HA in the smallest space available on the market,” said Patric Schleicher, IT-leitung Forschner Gruppe. “Our 2-node SvSAN clusters mean that downtime is a thing of the past for both of our offices.“
StorMagic was recommended by Forschner’s strategic partner, it@business, a VAR who packages, sells and installs IT solutions for end users. SvSAN only requires 2 servers for an HA solution, which depicts the smallest footprint.
Since installation, Forschner has found SvSAN to be a true HA solution with centralized management that offers compatibility with any storage type, including the all-flash drives on commodity hardware they preferred, which delivers performance for the price. Performance improvements, 100% uptime and the ability to conduct maintenance on SvSAN while it’s running have been key benefits to the customer.
