StorMagic’s SvSAN – Targeting HCI’s ROBO Sweet Spot

StorMagic presented at Tech Field Day back in February. Here, Howard Marks reviews how their SvSAN delivers hyper converged infrastructure for remote and branch office environments as well as how their unique approach to software-defined storage is designed to keep costs low while improving performance and maintaining highly available clusters.


Visiting Intel with SFD 12

Howard Marks was at Storage Field Day and got to see the latest and greatest from Intel. As the current de facto CPU and chipset vendor in the data center, Howard sees them as having an immense responsibility in terms of dictating computer architecture. Luckily from what Howard saw at Intel’s presentation, they are living up to this. As an example, he goes into the applications and implication of their Storage Performance Developer Kit, as well as their recent release of the first commercial 3D XPoint.
