This edition of Might of Missed includes excerpts from ActualTech Media's June 2016 report on Hyper-converged, Datanauts on resource allocation and failover testing and StorMagic delivering next generation software-defined storage with a forthcoming release of SvSAN.
What are the differences between fault tolerance, high availability and disaster recovery solutions? When is it best to employ these solutions, which environments?
What can CIO's do to optimize branch office IT infrastructure and keep applications running? Does cloud storage offer solutions for branch office? Are there more risk averting solutions available?
In a split-brain scenario, where the connection between two servers fails, it's imperative that a quorum server exists to decide which server in a mirrored pair can update data. Without this, data corruption can occur.
In reducing costs across their IT infrastructure, organizations with branch offices are increasingly looking towards virtual servers and virtual desktops. This decreases the number of physical servers required and reduces the cost of maintaining desktops.
When it comes to software-defined storage (SDS), small and midsized businesses (SMBs) are getting the short end of the stick, according to Hans O’Sullivan, CEO of storage virtualization software specialist StorMagic.
StorMagic, Inc. has signed Prianto UK and Prianto GmbH as authorised distributors in the UK, Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
In this Episode I’m with Hans O’Sullivan, StorMagic‘s CEO, and we talk about: – Hyperconverged infrastructures for the distributed enteprise – How HA is managed in small and remote sites – Manging multiple (up to thousands) sites – KVM support
StorMagic SvSAN was nominated as a Finalist in this years annual Storage Awards hosted London.
StorMagic‘s SvSAN is an ideal solution for distributed environments as it pushes storage resiliency to the network edge but without the high costs associated with many of today’s hardware products.
