StorMagic™ Experiences Success in Retail Environments with SvSAN

BRISTOL, England --(Business Wire)--

StorMagic, a leading provider of enterprise-class virtual storage for virtual-server environments, today reports a major US-based retailer with 2,000+ locations has standardized on the flagship storage virtual appliance (SVA) product SvSAN. SvSAN version 5 was developed specifically to meet the growing demands of enterprise retail organizations managing multiple distributed stores.

"StorMagic's success with this major retailer is yet another milestone in our strategic focus on the retail market," said Hans O'Sullivan, CEO of StorMagic. "SvSAN addresses a real need for retailers that cannot be addressed by traditional storage products. And that is why we were selected by this major retailer over much bigger competitors."

In StorMagic's recently released retail customer profile, the key challenges and resulting ROI achievements are outlined. For this large big box retailer with 2,000+ locations, downtime across their distributed stores due to hardware and RAID failures was one of the most concerning issues. There are more than a dozen business applications running in the stores and the loss of revenue due to system failures was too costly.

As a result of implementing StorMagic's SvSAN, a certified SVA for VMware vSphere, the retailer achieved high availability to the applications running in virtual-server environments while avoiding the costs and complexity of traditional SAN solutions.

"StorMagic is well-positioned to be the leader in virtual storage for the retail industry," said Tony Asaro, founder and senior analyst for the INI Group. "Their focus on this vertical is very smart and they continue to add differentiation, value and expertise that gives them an edge over other solutions that try to be all things to all people."

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
