Get Started With StoneFly Server Virtualization Platforms

It’s a known fact virtualization makes better use of computing  resources  than physical servers do, since many different servers can be run on a single physical host. Another major benefit is to switch running virtual servers from one physical host to the other to balance load and allow maintenance windows. Snapshots on virtual servers allow you to keep a moment-in-time copy .If something goes wrong one can simply return to the snapshot and operate as if nothing happened.

Since its founding in 2000, StoneFly has been applying the principles of virtualization for the development of easy-to-use, redundant, high-performance iSCSI and IP SAN technology. By centralizing storage into an intelligent storage area network with advanced storage services increases storage utilization and removes islands of underutilized disk resources, making your storage fit your environment today and tomorrow.
