DataCore Software – VMware Virtual Volumes (VVols) Storage Podcast – Episode 246

In episode 246, Douglas Brown interviews Todd Mace, Tech Evangelist at DataCore Software. Todd and Douglas discuss the DataCore software defined storage virtualization solution and how it works with VMware’s Virtual Volumes infrastructure. Todd explains how DataCore SANsymphony works, requirements, a bit about hyper-convergence, and Parallel I/O plus so much more! 

About DataCore SANsymphony-V support for VMware VVols

With DataCore, administrators can deploy virtual drives via the vSphere interface from any storage hardware (disk subsystems, flash / SSD arrays, DAS, etc.). As a result, these customers can now benefit from VVols on platforms including the broad range of EMC, IBM, HDS, Dell, XIO, NetApp and other popular storage systems and all flash arrays (Pure Storage, Nimble, etc.) by layering the SANsymphony-V Software-Defined Storage platform in front of them. The same is true for direct-attached storage (DAS) pooled by the DataCore Hyper-converged Virtual SAN.

DataCore’s unique implementation of VVols also enables customers to realize its benefits on legacy storage and arrays that are not slotted to receive VVols until next year or beyond — allowing un-certified storage gear to receive the benefit today. In addition, DataCore also provides vSphere tools that enable Hyper-converged systems to be set up automatically and configured on ESXi clusters with the DataCore Virtual SAN.
