DataCore Software and VirtualSharp Software Announce Partnership to Deliver Disaster Recovery Assurance

SANsymphony-V Plus ReliableDR: A Quantum Leap in Disaster Recovery

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL and MCLEAN, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/30/12 -- DataCore Software, the storage hypervisor leader and premier provider of storage virtualization software, and VirtualSharp Software, the leading provider of next generation automated Disaster Recovery solutions for private and public clouds, today announced a technology partnership that integrates storage virtualization with Disaster Recovery automation to deliver the next step in Disaster Recovery management: Disaster Recovery Assurance.

"The time and resource costs of Disaster Recovery plan exercising, especially that which is supported by manual or semi-manual processes, have become the most significant IT Disaster Recovery Management pain point for many of Gartner's clients," wrote John Morency, research vice president at Gartner, Inc. in "Best Practices for Planning and Managing Disaster Recovery Testing" (Research Paper G00215785).

"Non-stop, reliable business continuity is an absolute imperative today, regardless of an organization's size or market," stated Carlos M. Carreras, vice president of alliances and business development, DataCore Software. "SMBs, private cloud operators and even the largest enterprises require the ability to recover from an IT disaster without losing any data. Together with VirtualSharp, we are bringing complete assurance to the cloud and grant IT administrators the peace of mind knowing their information will always be protected and retrievable."

"Virtualization's benefits now extend to storage, and DataCore's storage hypervisor makes storage more efficient and agile for thousands of companies worldwide," said Carlos Escapa, Co-Founder and CEO of VirtualSharp Software. "It was an easy decision to partner with DataCore to make Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery simpler, certain and more affordable."

The DataCore SANsymphony™-V storage hypervisor gives customers a solid foundation for Business Continuity and delivers powerful, infrastructure-wide, device-independent storage virtualization that can manage environments of all sizes and quickly roll out agile, scalable storage infrastructures, including cloud. SANsymphony-V provides snapshots, synchronous mirroring for high availability, and asynchronous replication to remote Disaster Recovery sites. Disaster Recovery procedures can be periodically tested and verified without disturbing production activities at other points in the storage environment. Similarly, the software allows rapid resynchronization and resumption of a temporarily suspended site.

VirtualSharp Software's ReliableDR adds 100 percent automated Disaster Recovery testing for guaranteed push-button failover and failback across clouds. Without any footprint or impact on the production environment, it works with the SANsymphony-V storage hypervisor to create application and service-aware snapshots at a Disaster Recovery site that are guaranteed to work, making it easy to enforce recovery point objectives (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTO).

"DataCore and VirtualSharp integrate seamlessly to leverage storage and server virtualization and enable highly resilient enterprise clouds," said John Greenwood, sales director at NCE Computer Group. "We are impressed by the synergy and close collaboration that these two vendors are demonstrating."

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the benefits of the cloud without losing performance as containers become the new paradigm.
Blockchain is a new buzzword that promises to revolutionize the way we manage data. If the data is stored in a blockchain there is no need for a middleman - the distributed database is stored on multiple and there is no need to have a centralized server that will ensure that the transactions can be trusted. The best way to understand how a blockchain works is to build one. During this presentation, we'll start with covering the basics (hash, nounce, block, smart contracts) and then we'll create a simple blockchain and a web client for it.
