AviSolve Turns to DataCore for Best-of-Breed Software-Defined Storage and Hyper-converged Solutions
DataCore Software, the leader in Parallel-Powered Software, Application-Adaptive Data Infrastructure and Hyper-converged Virtual SAN solutions, today announced that AviSolve has become a DataCore Premier Partner in the Americas. AviSolve is a Value-Added Reseller (VAR) with a national reach within the Information Technology space. As a trusted advisor, AviSolve continuously evaluates industry-best technology to consult, implement and create the most cost-effective and best solutions for its customers through strategic partners as well as its own engineers.
“What DataCore represents to AviSolve is fundamentally an enabler,” said Tony Meisner, vice president of sales/co-owner, AviSolve. “It solves a host of problems at the customer site. AviSolve is also an early adopter of hyper-converged, and we have found that the DataCore solution addresses growth and flexibility challenges. It is a testament to the hyper-converged direction we see in enterprise IT.”
AviSolve emphasizes that many customers think they are ready for hyper-converged – and they are not. For this VAR, DataCore provides a perfect on-ramp to hyper-converged. Additionally for AviSolve, embracing DataCore means getting a performance boost without requiring the high-costs of all-flash arrays. With DataCore’s parallel I/O technology and efficient caching the dependencies on solid state disks (SSDs) are far less important, since customers will get a “dramatic and noticeable” performance increase from using DataCore to power any storage existing or new whether flash, disk or SAN array based.
Performance, Stability, Manageability and Replication
With DataCore, AviSolve can deliver faster performance, management automation and more uptime to customers.
DataCore’s software-defined storage platform delivers compelling value and accelerates performance in the real world by 3-5x (and often up to 10x) – speeding up workloads and ensuring faster response times. Because DataCore offers a software-defined solution, the software lives beyond devices that “come and go” – thereby extending the useful life of storage and training investments. With DataCore, customers pay once for intelligent software and run it on the hardware of their choice – only buying what they need, when they need it.
Moreover, the infrastructure-wide functions and management automation inherent to DataCore’s software work across generations of devices – providing enduring value and fast payback – and transforming disparate storage resources into a unified and efficient infrastructure that is flexible, fast, reliable and scalable.
DataCore’s SANsymphony software platform gives users a single-pane-of-glass, simplifying management between disk and server by providing one common set of infrastructure-wide services to unify management across all of a customer’s storage resources. This drastically reduces the time spent on routine storage tasks for users.
DataCore also enables organizations to achieve non-stop business operations in a very practical and cost-effective manner. The replication piece is of enormous benefit to AviSolve and its customers in that DataCore users are ensured high availability due to a nearly 100% reduction in storage related downtime by deploying two copies of DataCore’s software-defined storage platform. Being able to replicate from one storage solution to a completely different one gives customers the ability to have high-end storage for their production environments and something a lot less expensive with which to mirror data.
DataCore as a Go-To, Best-of-Breed Partner
“It was apparent to us early on in talking to AviSolve executives that they are very attuned to best-of-breed solutions – whether those be servers, storage or networking,” said Devi Madhavan, channel vice president at DataCore. “They understood the value quickly and how the DataCore advantage could boost their business by delivering the most pressing IT ‘must-haves’ to their customers and prospective customers.”
Partnering with DataCore further differentiates AviSolve from the traditional box-pushers. Differentiation on the technical side stems from the consolidation and simplification benefits that DataCore delivers to AviSolve customers. As for business benefits, DataCore’s Software-Defined Storage platform contains costs and provides Capex/Opex savings, while optimizing utility and purchasing choice. Plus, DataCore’s Software-Defined Storage platform protects and extends the life of IT investments enabling users to reuse and repurpose equipment.
“With DataCore as a go-to partner, we can be a lot more agile – and bring must-have new technology to our relationships and not be the everyday, run-of the mill box-pusher,” summarized Meisner. “Customers using DataCore have all of the high-end features of a traditional SAN – and are not locked-in to purchasing and licensing those expensive capabilities from a SAN vendor.”
