  • SANsymphony 6.0: A New User-Driven Era in Storage and SAN Infrastructure Management

    Just buying more hardware would not have solved our problems. We needed a smarter approach that would allow us to control and automate storage across our entire environment, and decided to go virtual with DataCore. Once you do so and look back, the old storage box approach seems so primitive. SANsymphony 6.0 made the jump easy. We run DataCore in tandem with VMware and together they allocate resources as needed, where needed, over our IP and Fibre Channel networks. Instead of wrestling with hardware, SANsymphony has made storage a network utility a service for our users and applications.- Michael Gayle, Director of IT, Calvary Chapel.

    Storage virtualization is a game for experienced players. During the six years that DataCore has been in business they did the basics and learned a lot from their customers. They are applying this knowledge now in building a platform for the future that addresses a range of services that newcomers have yet to fathom. After the announcement of Enterprise Edition 6.0, if someone thinks DataCore is a niche player, think again! The timing couldn't be better as we see 2007 as the "year storage virtualization goes mainstream." Arun Taneja, Founder, President and Consulting Analyst of the Taneja Group.

    DataCore Softwares SANsymphony 6.0 represents the next generation of virtualization. It begins to change the focus of the conversation from how companies manage their storage to how they manage their enterprise. - Jerome M. Wendt, Chief Analyst and President, Datacenter Infrastructure Group Inc.

    Industry-standard storage and infrastructures can be managed as sets of services and shared resources that can be dynamically defined for and allocated to different business units or projects.IT Managers can regulate and automate adding capacity, data protection levels, and performance non-disruptively based on business demand.Storage hardware failures can be automatically overcome with no or minimal disruption.Business data can be protected with no impact to production SLAs.Applications can be provisioned with storage instantly and recovered at the same or remote locations easily regardless of the operating system and hardware.

  • Enterprise iSCSI and Network Agnostic"SANsymphony 6.0 makes it practical to build robust, scalable SANs usingstandard IP networks and LANs utilizing iSCSI protocols."

    Industry first solution to support path failover across either Fiber Channel or iSCSI or both. FC primary path and iSCSI secondary failover path or vice versa. N+1 architecture upgrade and scale storage servers using iSCSI links Network-wide storage services available over iSCSI and or FC infrastructures. IP-based, Synchronous and Asynchronous remote site disaster recovery services SANmotion services over iSCSI for simple data migration. Diskless Boot from SAN and rapid emergency recovery for iSCSI IP SANs. iSCSI serves: Microsoft Clusters, VMs (e.g., VMware ESX) and Blade Servers.

    In order to gain modern storage functionality and failover protection features,one often has to give up iSCSI altogether. DataCore rectifies that." - Ziya Aral, CTO and Chairman, DataCore Software

  • First True Enterprise iSCSI Flexible Multi-PathingPrimary Paths can be FCAnd Secondary Paths iSCSIOr Vice VersaComprehensive End-to-End, Multi Path SAN Failover. Across FC, iSCSI or Both, resulting in true wire agnosticism without sacrificing enterprise capability.
