Solving the "Big Problem" Stalling Today's Server and Desktop Virtualization Projects, Brings DataCore Widespread Industry Accolades
DataCore Software, the industry's premier provider of storage virtualization software, recently announced broad praises and widespread momentum for its newest software release, SANsymphony- V. This next-generation solution eliminates storage-related barriers that prevent IT organizations from realizing the financial and operational goals of their virtualization initiatives.
"We have large data storage needs and found the flexibility we were seeking in SANsymphony-V," states Peter Dobler, assistant vice president, Corporate MIS Dept., Northeast Health. "Moreover, SANsymphony-V's interface is head and shoulders above what I am used to for storage management. It is very intuitive and easy to use. SANsymphony-V has made our end-to-end virtualization initiatives a reality. We virtualized our core network with Cisco and our servers with both VMware vSphere and Citrix XenServer. SANsymphony-V was the final piece. Storage virtualization with SANsymphony-V rounded the whole thing out and it has worked really well."
According to George Teixeira, president and CEO of DataCore Software, "The industry accolades and positive customer feedback speaks to the timeliness, relevance and value implicit in SANsymphony-V. While many had looked at virtualization from the narrow perspective of servers and desktops, they now recognize how our storage virtualization software forms the critical third dimension to a hardware-independent strategy."
Announced in January 2011, SANsymphony-V software enables data centers to use existing equipment and conventional storage devices to achieve the robust and responsive shared storage environment necessary to support highly dynamic virtual IT environments. This contrasts sharply with the expensive "rip and replace" approaches being proposed to support desktop and server virtualization projects.
"We deployed SANsymphony-V at all of our global affiliate locations," says Jane Cebula, director, Global Infrastructure, SI Group. "We needed to protect our VMware environment by ensuring that data was synchronously mirrored and highly available. Now our data is secure because with SANsymphony-V we can replicate data in real-time to a secondary location, rather than contracting out for our D/R needs."
In recent weeks, many independent assessments of DataCore's impact to the virtualization segment have been conducted. These include:

"We implemented DataCore software to protect our VMware environment from glitches in our storage infrastructure," states Warren D. Nisbett, senior assistant managing director, Management Information Systems Unit, St. Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla National Bank Ltd. "SANsymphony-V automatically replicates our virtual machine images and their data in real-time to our other hot site. Moreover, our system performance has greatly improved. We stand behind our selection of SANsymphony-V because it performs as advertised."
