Storage + Server Virtualization

Consolidating hardware resources into virtual storage, servers, operating systems, applications or networks allows any organizations to improve efficiency and simplify the management of its datacenter or IT infrastructure. Since its founding in 2006, StoneFly Inc. has been applying the principles of virtualization in the development of easy-to-use, redundant, high-performance iSCSI and Fibre Channel SAN technology.
