StorMagic®, solving the world’s edge data problems, today announced continued momentum with manufacturing end users with the addition of two new Germany-based customers. StorMagic SvSAN is a simple, two-node virtual SAN that manages data and its associated applications, to ensure customers’ main objective – productivity.
“Manufacturers require IT systems that deliver built-in redundancy and high availability to ensure continuous operations and, ultimately, productivity to keep their businesses running,” said Bruce Kornfeld, chief marketing and product officer, StorMagic. “SvSAN eliminates single points of failure and downtime to keep factories and plants operational and efficient.”
StorMagic ensures production uptime through high availability, reliability and performance, at a low cost, and is helping two German manufacturers in this endeavor.
WST previously used DataCore SANsymphony to store application data from various databases, file services, and telecommunication systems. Mounting costs and inadequate performance as the volume of data increased led them to review all-flash disk systems at two of their production facilities. SvSAN was selected due to its ability to support all the applications required at these sites with ease of use, minimal hardware requirements and high uptime.
“WST was able to significantly reduce costs and add 100 percent uptime between our two datacenters by moving to StorMagic SvSAN,” said Alexandra Körner, head of IT, WST Präzisionstechnik GmbH. “We’ve also been able to eliminate vendor lock-in thanks to SvSAN’s compatibility with all storage types, hardware and hypervisors. Our future costs have been significantly reduced without sacrificing performance, and budgets are now much more predictable, and easier to plan.”
Witholz GmbH previously used a physical SAN for data processing and management in its two datacenters. The company urgently needed a solution that provided high availability to store application data from its entire IT environment. Witholz found that StorMagic SvSAN was the ideal solution as it was very easy to install and use, and offered the highest performance for the price.
“StorMagic SvSAN is a ‘set and forget’ solution that delivers the best price for performance point in today’s market, and is an ideal fit for every small to medium-sized enterprise," said Matthias Böhler, CEO, Witholz GmbH. “SvSAN allowed us to maximize our budget and achieve 100 percent uptime, which lets us sleep more soundly at night.”
StorMagic is solving the world’s edge data problems. We help organizations store, protect, and use their data at and from the edge. StorMagic’s Forever Data solutions ensure data is always protected and available, no matter the type or location, to provide value anytime, anywhere. StorMagic’s storage, surveillance and security products are flexible, robust, easy to use and cost-effective, without sacrificing enterprise-class features, for organizations with one to thousands of sites.

ControlUp, a leader in Digital Employee Experience (DEX) management, announced today the latest release of Real-Time DX 8.8, an end-to-end monitoring and troubleshooting solution for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) environments. With hundreds of new metrics including 162 specifically for Azure Virtual Desktop, ControlUp can now provide monitoring, alerting and remediation capabilities to Azure Virtual Desktop the same way it does for Citrix and VMware Horizon environments.
Rio Tinto, the world’s second-largest metals and mining corporation and a ControlUp customer, proactively monitors 6,000 unique users with 2,200 concurrent daily sessions.

Additionally, ControlUp assisted in their Citrix-to-Azure Virtual Desktop migration.
“I don’t have to ask my team for information. I see everything, I know everything, and, as a system owner, it’s very useful. I actually know what’s going on,” stated Iaroslav Aleksyuk, cyber security, monitoring and incident response specialist. “Thanks to ControlUp, we were able to find machine catalogs and other silos that were not really used.”
ControlUp is a proven and versatile solution that supports all major cloud VDI, including Azure Virtual Desktop, Citrix, and VMware Horizon, from one control plane. It allows users to choose the right EUC platform for their environment, whether they need to migrate, scale up, or launch resources on-premises or in the cloud.`
“Our customers can now choose the best cloud VDI environment for their requirements thanks to ControlUp’s unique monitoring capabilities for leading platforms. We are announcing today a feature-rich product with expanding insights into Azure Virtual Desktop deployments for cost control, VM usage visibility, and metrics, focused exclusively on cloud-based deployments,” commented Asaf Ganot, CEO of ControlUp.
