Vendors Under the Radar: StorMagic

I have a soft spot for underdog vendors. Like many of you, I've been there — working at a small vendor competing against the behemoths or working on a small emerging underdog product within a behemoth, competing for airtime and survival. I know that it's tough to get the word out when you are outspent on marketing by a factor of 10:1 or more.

So I'm going to keep going down the "vendors under the radar" path to call attention to vendors you may not have heard of that are doing cool things, but may be under the radar because they don't have the big budgets.

Next up: StorMagic.

Is This Storage Solution the Holy Grail for Distributed Organizations?

Imagine you’re running IT for a major retail chain and you need to pick the best storage solution to be deployed at every branch office across the country. What would be on your requirements list? It would have to be easy to deploy and manage – gradually rolling out across every location. It would definitely have to perform well. Ideally, application downtime would be as close to zero as possible. If something went wrong, I would have to be 100% positive I did not lose any customer data. I would want a solution with as small a hardware footprint as possible to help minimize cost. Speaking of cost, let’s keep that as low as possible. Good luck finding all that with a traditional storage solution.
