What Does StorMagic Have Planned for VMworld 2016? 

As part of VMblog's live VMworld 2016 coverage coming up in a few weeks, we're in the process of working up our schedules to make sure we can see and learn as much as possible when the show kicks off.  And we're extremely excited to visit the Solutions Expo this year.  But with so many vendors exhibiting, how do you know which booths to visit and who to get on your schedule?

One of the companies on our "must see" list this year may be new to some VMblog readers -- StorMagic.  However, this company has been around for quite some time, founded in 2006 by two experienced storage entrepreneurs... they had a vision to find the simplest, most cost-effective way to manage storage infrastructure through software.  More about the company:

StorMagic delivers innovative software-defined storage solutions that empower organizations to virtualize their storage and deliver very significant improvements in flexibility, efficiency and performance. Organizations using SvSAN range from small enterprises with one location to some of the world's largest corporations with SvSAN installed in thousands of sites. We give our customers, large and small, the flexibility to customize and optimize their hardware architecture to meet their specific application and data needs. We make it simple for them to centrally manage and scale their data storage architecture, so that they can focus on running their business.
