Today StoneFly releases the Clustered SCVM, a powerful virtual IP SAN software appliance designed for VMware environments. This fully redundant and fault tolerant IP SAN software can be created from two existing virtual servers, and is ideal for your virtualized and cloud environments.
With this latest release, the new clustering feature eliminates the risk of hardware failover by recognizing failures within a virtual storage server and instantaneously switching its resources to the other virtual active storage nodes.
To learn more about Clustered SCVM visit www.iSCSI.com or call us at (510) 265-1616. Also read more about this release on our latest press release.

“Virtualization” has been a major buzzword these days in the world of IT. With so many enterprises virtualizing their datacenters, it is definitely becoming a new way of computing. I recently read this interesting article: “Is Server Virtualization The New Clustering?“. It gives some great insight on the trends of virtualization and how it can reduce operating expenses, while increasing resource utilization and making management much easier.
Want to learn more about virtualization? Check out this whitepaper or great overview video on www.iSCSI.com.

Here’s what storage expert Jim Addlesberger had to say about the Voyager IP SAN in his recent blog post:
In direct competition with Equallogic the Voyager IP SANs are designed to offer active/active controllers, improved redundancy, high-availability and fast performance – at a lower price point. Using high-performance storage interconnects, the Voyager product family is designed for enterprise environments looking for a versatile SAN for primary and secondary storage applications.
With support for SAS, SATA, and SSD drives for online transaction processing, database, email, disk based archives, disk to disk backup, virtual servers and other core applications. The cornerstone of the Voyager is their storage virtualization engine, which offers quad-core processing power, dedicated iSCSI Cache, and our StoneFusion storage management operating system.
Don’t believe us, read what Reuters had to say in March of 2009. And at 10Gb speeds the Voyager is a screamer.
Speaking of 10GB you should let us tell you about H3C a division of 3COM. Combining the Voyager and H3C’s 10GB switches gives you a very economical, performing and secure solution.
The Voyager not only supports 10GB but also Solid State drives as well.
Allow us to arrange an informative conference call to tell you more.
