StorMagic™ Experiences Success in Retail Environments with SvSAN

BRISTOL, England --(Business Wire)--

StorMagic, a leading provider of enterprise-class virtual storage for virtual-server environments, today reports a major US-based retailer with 2,000+ locations has standardized on the flagship storage virtual appliance (SVA) product SvSAN. SvSAN version 5 was developed specifically to meet the growing demands of enterprise retail organizations managing multiple distributed stores.

"StorMagic's success with this major retailer is yet another milestone in our strategic focus on the retail market," said Hans O'Sullivan, CEO of StorMagic. "SvSAN addresses a real need for retailers that cannot be addressed by traditional storage products. And that is why we were selected by this major retailer over much bigger competitors."

In StorMagic's recently released retail customer profile, the key challenges and resulting ROI achievements are outlined. For this large big box retailer with 2,000+ locations, downtime across their distributed stores due to hardware and RAID failures was one of the most concerning issues. There are more than a dozen business applications running in the stores and the loss of revenue due to system failures was too costly.

As a result of implementing StorMagic's SvSAN, a certified SVA for VMware vSphere, the retailer achieved high availability to the applications running in virtual-server environments while avoiding the costs and complexity of traditional SAN solutions.

"StorMagic is well-positioned to be the leader in virtual storage for the retail industry," said Tony Asaro, founder and senior analyst for the INI Group. "Their focus on this vertical is very smart and they continue to add differentiation, value and expertise that gives them an edge over other solutions that try to be all things to all people."
