Weiss Group Chooses StorMagic

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- StorMagic, a fast-growing developer of storage management software, today announced Weiss Group Inc. as a new customer. Weiss Group is one of the worlds largest, most reputable independent sources for unbiased market commentary and global investment information. The company uses the cost-effective StorMagic SM™ series software designed specifically for the SMB market to manage its archived and backup data.

“I know that many small and medium businesses such as ours think that SANs are too complex to manage,” said James Santillo, Weiss Group system administrator. “As an innovative company, always looking for leading-edge technologies to meet our increasing storage needs, we found that the flexibility to buy standard Intel servers, configure them with any type or amount of storage we needed, and then install the StorMagic SM series software on them gave us the cost-effective, yet reliable iSCSI SAN solution that could safely manage our mission-critical archived and backup data.”

“In my search for an iSCSI SAN solution that was easier to install and manage while providing the migration capabilities that I needed, I tested a few appliances. Most of them offered a CLI interface, requiring the user to learn proprietary commands,” commented Santillo. “When I first installed the StorMagic software, which turns standard Intel servers into iSCSI storage appliances, all it took was a simple, intuitive three-step process to set up and configure. It was so much easier than any other iSCSI storage appliance I tested or managed before.”
