Running, managing and storing data that is spread across multiple locations can be complicated and expensive. Organizations with geographically distributed remote offices or branch offices (ROBO) such as financial institutions, retailers, utility companies and government agencies, rely on customer-facing applications that are onsite for them to operate locally.
But many struggle to implement a ROBO storage system that is affordable while still offering the right performance for these business-critical applications. Challenges include the growing amount of data, the diverse number of offices, and the lack of qualified IT staff at each location. Businesses that try to avoid these onsite headaches by centralizing applications or moving them to the cloud can be affected by sluggish network performance and extra bandwidth costs, according to a research report from ESG.
The solution to ROBO storage challenges is radically simple. Hypervisor and hardware agnostic, StorMagic SvSAN is the most cost-effective virtual SAN for SME and ROBO. Offering highly available shared storage at a dramatically lower cost, SvSAN completely eliminates the need for expensive physical SANs. Instead, running on only two servers, the virtual SAN storage software, can be centrally managed from one location.
