VMworld 2014: Datacore Showcases ‘No Limits’ Virtual SAN and the Business Value of Software-Defined Storage

DataCore, a leader in software-defined storage, will be showcasing its new ‘any hypervisor, any storage’ Virtual SAN capabilities and SANsymphony-V10, the latest version of its comprehensive storage services platform at VMworld 2014. During the show, DataCore will present solutions to resolve the growing ‘data islands’ problem and address the disruptive impacts that Flash technology, convergence, software-defined data centers and the move to commodity hardware are having on today’s IT environments. DataCore will also feature its latest technology innovations and offer a show special Virtual SAN software license for virtualization and storage experts to test-drive the new capabilities for themselves. DataCore will be present in booth #1445, next to VMware’s main booth at the show, which takes place on August 24 – 28 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA.

“DataCore enables businesses to get started with a high performance, stretchable and scalable virtual SAN at an appealing price without dealing with the cost and complexity hassles of traditional SANs or forcing limitations to using a single vendor hypervisor or specific flash and disk storage brands,” said George Teixeira, CEO and president at DataCore. “Competing alternatives can’t provide a pathway to incorporate external storage and physical SANs, and instead create non-integrated ‘data islands’ that require many more nodes and expensive add-on flash cards to achieve a fraction of what DataCore delivers.”

The DataCore Virtual SAN: Any Hypervisor, Any Storage

DataCore Virtual SAN leverages its 10th generation technology to create an agile software solution that works cross-platform with all major hypervisors, including industry leading VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V. Plagued by lack of storage resiliency, high storage costs and inadequate storage performance, companies today are looking for a reliable and effective solution to virtualize and simplify storage management within their data centers and server infrastructure. Converged storage has been seen as the solution, but current options create isolated ‘data islands,’ each with its own incompatible hardware and software. With DataCore’s Virtual SAN, organizations can virtualize server Flash and disk-based storage, as well as integrate external storage arrays to supplement their converged storage. Specifically, DataCore’s advanced technology allows for continuous data availability, with nearly zero percent downtime, reducing storage costs by up to 75 percent and improving the I/O performance of virtualized applications by up to 10x.

The DataCore virtual SAN software eliminates the need to deal with traditional SAN costs and complexities. The technology accelerates performance to more than 50 million IOPS and scales to 32 petabytes of capacity across a cluster of 32 servers, making it one of the most powerful and scalable systems available.

Unlike alternatives, which are locked into a single storage infrastructure that changes the existing storage operations and creates separate ‘data islands’ to manage, DataCore’s “Data Anywhere” architecture allows organizations to manage, virtualize and leverage server Flash and disk-based storage along with external storage arrays spanning different departments, data centers and remote locations. Proven at over 10,000+ customer sites, DataCore’s Virtual SAN capabilities provides the best of both worlds, making it easy for organizations to automatically tier and optimize their storage investments to achieve the best balance of price and performance, regardless of storage or server brands, hypervisor platforms or location of the data.

Putting It All Together with DataCore SANsymphony-V10, The Ultimate Storage Services Platform

DataCore significantly improves business productivity in the real world. DataCore customers report up to 4x increase in capacity utilization, nearly 100 percent reduction in storage-related downtime, as well as a 90 percent decrease in time spent on routine storage tasks.

DataCore’s SANsymphony-V10 provides a comprehensive set of storage services and a growth path that encompasses virtual SANs (including both server Flash and disk technologies) while expanding the scope to integrate external SANs and any combination of Flash and disk-based storage wherever located as part of an overall architecture. DataCore SANsymphony-V10 provides a complete range of storage services to enhance, virtualize and manage existing and new storage assets enterprise-wide.

“As a result of DataCore’s software-defined storage platform, we have seen significant savings in hardware and personnel costs, while increasing the performance of applications,” said Gabriel Sandu, CTO at Maimonides Medical Center. At Maimonides, Gabriel oversees an IT environment running both VMware and Microsoft hypervisors and a mix of traditional and Virtual SANs covering a diversity of servers and storage devices which span metro-wide remote sites and clustered virtual environments and supports many critical databases and healthcare applications.

Free DataCore Virtual SAN for Virtualization Pros

DataCore is commemorating its 10th generation release by offering a free, non-production Virtual SAN software licenses. Intended primarily for technical specialists, virtualization consultants, certified storage experts, instructors and architects evaluating technologies to manage and optimize storage infrastructures, the software will help organizations evaluate and experience the value of a converged infrastructure.
