AccessFlow Brings on Board Scores of New Accounts in 2007; Company Will Be Showcasing DataCore Software Solutions at Upcoming VMworld 2007 in San Francisco
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Sept. 4 – DataCore Software Corporation, the leading provider of hardware independent, storage virtualization software solutions, today announced that partner AccessFlow,a leading VMware value-added reseller, has been extremely successful throughout 2007 — bringing on board many new DataCore and VMware customers, including: Lawyer Links, LLC (http://www.lawyerlinks.com), Rocklin Unified School District and Los Rios Community College District, among others. AccessFlow’s mission is to combine server virtualization (VMware), storage virtualization (DataCore), network and application virtualization to enable greater productivity and significant reductions in IT costs for its clients.
New AccessFlow customer accolades
“DataCore is an affordable solution when compared to the competition,” said Steve Bradley, network administrator, Rocklin Unified School District. “We’ve had our eyes on a SAN for about five years and DataCore made it possible.”
AccessFlow has continued to grow rapidly since becoming a DataCore Partner. Most recently, AccessFlow has designed and deployed a virtual infrastructure solution for Lawyer Links, LLC using DataCore’s SANmelody(TM) for storage management and virtualization. “AccessFlow was important to us in this process,” said Marty Zigman, chief technology advisor, Lawyer Links, LLC. “While we had worked with VMware, we had limited experience deploying a SAN and we were not prepared to go to a traditional high cost solution. We took comfort in the prospect of utilizing iSCSI and DataCore because the solution was compelling. AccessFlow helped us design a solution and we were persuaded to go with
SANmelody because of the cost savings and AccessFlow’s confidence in DataCore. We worked with AccessFlow to do the initial SANmelody solution, which we have now purchased and rely on.”
DataCore makes the virtual enterprise a reality
“For us, DataCore makes the virtual enterprise a reality,” said Brian Roach, director of technical services, Los Rios Community College District. “With DataCore, we have much greater control of our storage infrastructure
and with the flexibility of virtual storage we now have what we need to control costs.”
According to Steve Kaplan, founder and CEO, AccessFlow, “As the industry’s best storage and SAN infrastructure management software, DataCore goes hand- in-hand with VMware virtualization and infrastructure solutions. We know from our customers that DataCore Software’s full line of storage virtualization, disaster recovery, and continuous data protection solutions are an integral part of the infrastructure for Total Enterprise Virtualization. And with DataCore, our customers get cost-effective and affordable SAN and iSCSI solutions that offer high availability, performance, thin provisioning and hardware independence.”
Total Enterprise Virtualization — Maximizing investment protection for customers
When AccessFlow became a DataCore reseller last year, it was looking to fill a void for its customer base between low-cost storage technologies and the need to provide seamless failover and Fibre Channel storage solutions
to customers and prospects that have embraced VMware. By utilizing DataCore software, AccessFlow has developed a flexible, virtual infrastructure strategy that serves as a model to maximize investment protection for customers that rely on AccessFlow for complete virtualization solutions. AccessFlow differentiates themselves from other resellers through technical skills, consulting services and virtual design. They pride themselves on being able to architect infrastructures better than anyone else.
“By utilizing DataCore software, AccessFlow has developed a flexible, virtual infrastructure strategy that serves as a model to maximize investment protection for customers that rely on AccessFlow for complete virtualization solutions,” said Carlos M. Carreras, vice president of sales and business development, DataCore Software. “We could not be happier with what AccessFlow has done to power the wave of adoption for Total Enterprise Virtualization by selling DataCore alongside Citrix and VMware. As we have been saying all along, DataCore does for storage what VMware does for servers and what Citrix does for desktops.”
The bottom-line for AccessFlow customers is that DataCore technology provides rich SAN functionality in a virtualized environment at a very low cost of entry. Thousands of users worldwide use DataCore’s comprehensive product portfolio, including award-winning SANsymphony(TM) and low-cost SANmelody(TM) disk server software products to easily add capacity expansion, and to centralize and automate storage management without impacting applications.
