StorMagic’s SvSAN is a lightweight, software-defined storage solution designed specifically for edge computing environments and small datacenters. These customers typically have limited IT staff and want to significantly reduce cost and complexity by eliminating physical storage area networks (SANs) and simplifying their environments. SvSAN makes virtual SANs simple for more than 1,000 customers globally, some with hundreds or thousands of individual sites.
“StorMagic SvSAN’s functionality, performance, uptime capability and price point make it the ideal solution for edge computing and small datacenter customers who want easy-to-use solutions,” said Brian Grainger, CRO and member of the board of directors, StorMagic. “Customers will no longer tolerate the complexities inherent in traditional IT solutions—and SvSAN delivers a simple approach to IT at the edge.”
Grainger’s appointment as StorMagic’s CRO and member of the board of directors is effective immediately. Grainger has held storage industry sales leadership positions for more than two decades, most recently with Spectra Logic, where he served as chief sales officer.
