StorMagic SvSAN Configuration Guides Now Available for Intel Server Platforms
StorMagic®, a fast-growing developer of iSCSI SAN management software for virtualized server environments, today announced the availability of a validated configuration for StorMagic SvSAN™ and VMware Infrastructure 3 for ESX 3.5 software on the Intel® Server Board S5520UR. This server configuration was developed jointly by StorMagic and Intel engineers through the Intel® Enabled Server Acceleration Alliance (Intel® ESAA), a collaborative program that streamlines technical certification and validation of Intel-based server products and enables Intel OEMs and channel partners to quickly deliver reliable, high-quality server solutions to their customers.

“The availability of our software on these Intel platforms opens up new markets for us and adds even more value to our solutions in the eyes of our channel partners and customers,” said Mike Stolz, vice president of marketing at StorMagic. “When we joined ESAA two years ago, our goal was to make leading-edge solutions available to our joint customers without the added cost and complexity of traditional options. The validation and certification achieved through Intel ESAA provide our mutual partners with the tools and peace of mind needed to ensure a smooth implementation.”

“By providing our channel community with proven configuration recipes, we reduce time-to-market and development costs for our customers,” said Ned Thanhouser, Intel ESAA program director, Intel Corporation. “Resellers trust us to bring them pre-tested solutions and support them through the sales and implementation processes, while their customers can now benefit from the latest Intel server technology coupled with leading-edge software solutions from vendors like StorMagic.”

With the StorMagic SvSAN, IT administrators can turn unused storage capacity into a virtual SAN, benefiting from high-end features of the VMware platform such as VMware VMotionTM, and building a high-availability shared storage solution for less than US$2,000. The StorMagic SvSAN also works with VMware vCenter™ Server to enable administrators to quickly and easily configure and manage the entire virtual environment from a single management console.

For more information, StorMagic and Intel will host a free webinar with details about this validated configuration on Wednesday, July 29, 2009 at 11 a.m. PDT. Register at
