DataCore Previews Latest SANsymphony-V Software-Defined Storage Platform Release Optimized for VMware® Infrastructures and Larger Scale Virtualization Deployments

DataCore Software, the leader in software-defined storage architecture and premier provider of storage virtualization software, will sneak-preview its latest enhancements to the SANsymphony™-V storage virtualization software at VMworld 2013 (Oct. 15-17, Fira Barcelona, Stand S112). The company will also be featuring its recently released DataCore VDS – Virtual Desktop Server, an affordable and high-speed VDI software solution. Visit Stand S112 to learn more about the new SANsymphony-V release, available on November 4, 2013. It will provide much greater scalability, faster next-generation replication services for disaster recovery, automatic self-healing storage capabilities, expanded platform integration with VMware VAAI space reclamation services and an updated vCenter™ plug-in. In addition, the new release of SANsymphony-V supports infrastructure-wide performance tiering and acceleration services that extend across scale-out grids of flash, SSDs and spinning disks from any vendor to accelerate Tier-1 applications and virtualization workloads.

DataCore and VMware Customers Speak Out on Software-defined Storage in a Virtual World

DataCore customer SES Engineering, the world-leading satellite operator and satellite communications company, will be available at the DataCore stand and will be featured in the Solutions Exchange Theatre on Oct. 15th at 4:40 p.m. SES Engineering will share its experience with DataCore storage virtualization software and explain why they see a software-defined architecture as the only logical solution to gain the flexibility and adaptability needed to address their growth and constantly changing needs.

VMware Users “Stop Fighting Your Storage Hardware”

DataCore Software recently launched a European-wide education and information campaign to spread the word to VMware users on the benefits of storage virtualization and software-defined storage architectures. Information resources including informative webcasts, links to video series on storage virtualization, white papers, “How To” guides and regional case studies are now available on DataCore’s “Stop Fighting Your Storage Hardware” site. The site showcases how real-world customers have achieved a software-defined data center that can maximize business productivity and capitalize on their current hardware investments. 

Thousands of data centers around the globe deploy DataCore to cost-effectively meet the high-performance and high-availability storage requirements of their physical and virtual servers. "By making use of the DataCore solution within the virtual infrastructure created by VMware vSphere and VDI, we can not only ensure that we meet these corporate requirements, but also guarantee optimal cost-efficiency as a result of the hardware independence of the solution. This affects both the direct investment and the indirect and long-term cost of refreshes, expansions and added hardware acquisitions. We have thus created the technical basis for our external IT services, and within this framework we are creating the most flexible and varied range of cloud services possible," states Dr. Karl Manfredi CEO at Brennercom, a leading ICT company.

DataCore SANsymphony-V is Optimized for VMware Virtual Infrastructure Deployments

DataCore SANsymphony-V delivers a simple and scalable high-availability solution to meet vSphere™ shared storage requirements. The hardware-agnostic storage virtualization software abstracts and pools internal and external disks along with flash/SSDs to yield lightning-fast response, non-stop access and optimal use of capacity. Notable features include enhanced support for fast in-memory optimizations using DRAM caching and auto-tiering flash technologies, metro-wide failsafe synchronous mirroring and enhanced higher speed replication and new services for disaster recovery and remote site recovery. An updated plug-in for VMware vCenter allows users to non-disruptively provision, share, clone, replicate and expand virtual disks among physical servers and virtual machines. SANsymphony-V is the ideal software-defined storage platform to meet the demanding availability and performance needs required by VMware Virtual Infrastructures.

New SANsymphony-V Features Preview

The SANsymphony-V release available on November 4, 2013 will include:

  • Twice the scaling with support for up to 16 federated nodes

– Scales performance and HA; federated nodes can span Metro-wide distances

  • Next generation remote replication services

– Speeds up performance for disaster recovery

  • New self-healing storage services

– Reduces business downtime from hardware failures

  • New failsafe non-disruptive data mobility services between storage pools

– Increases overall resiliency

  • New Hypervisor integration services

– Offloads hosts to accelerate performance and data mobility operations (VAAI, ODX)

  • New space reclamation services

– Enables IT organizations to reclaim unused capacity they already own

  • New change-control management and audit trail logs

– Helps prevent avoidable errors and simplifies troubleshooting

“The growing momentum for software-defined storage has encouraged VMware customers to consider storage virtualization software solutions that address performance and availability concerns. But while hypervisor-based and device-dependent storage virtualization solve some problems, agnostic software-only storage virtualization like DataCore SANsymphony-V have been proven to deliver  the highest value by working across any physical or virtual server and any collection of spinning disks and flash technology storage devices. We are pleased to showcase our customer proven value proposition and our SANsymphony-V software-defined storage platform at VMworld Europe 2013,” says Christian Hagen, vice president EMEA at DataCore Software. 

DataCore VDS 2.0 – The VDI Solution

Visit the DataCore stand (S112) to find out more about the recently announced DataCore VDS 2.0 software.

"DataCore VDS overcomes the VDI adoption issues and addresses the major market need for affordable desktop virtualization solutions in a climate where smaller budgets and the European financial crisis are impacting all IT decisions. DataCore VDS 2.0 removes many of the most painful implementation obstacles while significantly reducing the cost per virtual desktop instance, states Mr. Hagen.
