SCVM™ Overview: Software Defined Storage Virtualization Software

StoneFly SCVM™ (Storage Concentrator Virtual Machine) enables data center owners to make the most of their data storage infrastructure. 

With the SCVM software defined storage, enterprise users can configure virtual Network Attached Storage (NAS) and virtual Storage Area Network (SAN) on available and unused storage space. This ability enables enterprises to reduce the overall footprint of the data center and the cost of data storage  by 60%.

SCVM is a Software Defined Storage (SDS) solution which means that there is no dependency on specific manufacturers. The SDS storage solution can be deployed as a Virtual Machine (VM) on most mainstream hypervisors including VMware, Hyper-V and Citrix (formerly XenServer).

Make the Most of Your Available Storage Space with StoneFly SCVM

Virtual Storage Appliance

StoneFly SCVM enables data center owners to take advantage of the available storage space on their servers. Instead of buying new physical storage infrastructure, network switches and building a storage system, data center owners can use available storage space by using StoneFly’s virtual storage appliance.

With StoneFly SCVM, users can provision virtual NAS volumes or virtual SAN appliances on the available storage space thus efficiently using available resources instead of purchasing and setting up new ones.

Besides reducing the cost of data storage, our software defined storage also makes data management easier by delivering a single centralized management interface to manage all provisioned NAS, SAN and object storage resources.
