News Release

DataCore key sponsor of UK/Eire IDC Virtualisation Conferences.

DUBLIN, May 18 and LONDON, May 24
Released: 18th May 2011
Publisher: DataCore Software

IDC Virtualisation Conference – Dublin, May 18 and London, May 24: Per request, DataCore Software have announced participation within the IDC Virtualisation and Cloud Conference in Dublin and London. DataCore will discuss with the audience how storage virtualisation software can improve existing storage and radically enhance both server and desktop virtualisation projects.

DataCore’s flagship solution, SANsymphony-V, will be top of discussions on the booth. The software enables users to avoid ‘Rip and Replace’ and repurpose of conventional storage devices. SANsymphony-V adds high-performance and non-stop availability to shared storage solutions enabling dynamic storage, desktop and server virtualisation infrastructures. The new software generation reduces complexity and eliminates typical performance problems and storage-related downtime and disruptions from impacting business-critical applications such as databases or e-mail servers.

SANsymphony-V addresses and automates the three major jobs of storage: Capacity Management, Performance Management and Data Protection Management. It can automate provisioning of capacity via thin provisioning; through adaptive caching it can meet the needs of a variety of different workloads automatically and it can auto configure high-availability data protection to prevent failures, delays and downtime impacts to your business.

"Unanticipated storage hardware investments and inefficient storage use are often the most critical factors that bring server consolidation and desktop virtualisation projects to a screeching halt. Storage virtualisation software solutions like DataCore's SANsymphony-V allow IT teams to maximize the use of existing storage assets while also dramatically reducing administrative burdens. They frequently play the key role in ensuring the success of organisations' server and desktop virtualisation efforts.
- Richard Villars, Vice President of Storage and IT Executive Strategies, IDC.

“With the launch of SANsymphony-V, DataCore has redesigned its software for virtual server and desktop environments. However, DataCore's key benefits of extending the useful life of hardware, cutting hardware costs and removing vendor lock-in are still intact, and apply to both the physical and virtual world. By driving down storage cost and thus removing a major obstacle for adoption, DataCore makes server and desktop virtualisation affordable for the broader IT community."
- Carla Arend, Program Manager - European Infrastructure Software Research, IDC.
