Storage Virtualization is pivotal to the virtualization stack
DataCore’s SANsymphony™ storage virtualization solution is in use at over 10,000 customer sites.
Customers are building complete virtual data centers using DataCore to virtualize their storage investments by optimizing performance, availability and utilization of storage across their infrastructure.
Consider the 3 dimensions to virtualization - server, desktop, and storage - and their relationship in the IT hierarchy. At the top and middle of the stack, virtualization software from VMware, Microsoft and Citrix enable users and applications to float between different desktop devices and physical servers without concern for their underlying hardware differences.
Furthermore, these sophisticated hypervisors and VDI software move virtual servers and virtual desktops from one physical machine to another without having to take down applications.
They effectively insulate users from shifting hardware variables occurring underneath.
DataCore applies similar principles to storage where even more hardware volatility is likely. As we all know, rapid technology innovations soon render obsolete today’s biggest, fastest storage devices to be replaced by another generation of more attractive gear.
Our storage virtualization software maintains smooth operations, consistent performance and a perpetual suite of advanced functions despite changes, disruptions and differences in the underlying equipment. In other words, the stable virtual infrastructure remains in place while hardware comes and goes.
