SNW Europe 2012: DataCore Software Presents ‘What’s New in the Storage Hypervisor for the Enterprise’ and Powers Cloud and Business Applications to Run Faster Virtualized

October 30, 2012

FRANKFURT, Germany and FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Today at the SNW Europe, Datacenter Technologies & Virtualization World 2012 event, DataCore Software, the storage hypervisor leader and premier storage virtualization software provider, will showcase many of the powerful storage management capabilities of SANsymphony(TM)-V 9.0, “The Storage Hypervisor for the Cloud” including ‘Heat maps’ and tools to pinpoint storage bottlenecks and optimize storage pool management, high availability stretch-site mirroring, automatic Continuous Data Protection features for fast application recovery and enterprise-wide flash SSD storage auto-tiering and adaptive caching capabilities that significantly boost the speed, throughput and availability of virtualized, I/O intensive business applications like SAP, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Exchange. Stop by booth #2 under the motto “DataCore Software: Elevator to the Cloud” and find out why thousands of customers report significantly faster performance and better than 99.999% uptime after virtualizing their existing storage with SANsymphony-V.

“Thousands of customers throughout Europe have already realized the compelling performance and productivity advantage of DataCore(TM) SANsymphony-V,” states Christian Hagen, Vice President and Managing Director EMEA. “The DataCore storage hypervisor greatly improves the economics and harnesses the full power of server caches, solid state disks (SSDs) and existing storage assets so that application owners no longer need to ‘rip and replace’ storage infrastructures and pay much higher costs to meet their performance and uptime objectives.”

Run Faster Virtualized: By Eliminating the I/O Bottlenecks in Clouds and Virtualized Data Centers
“DataCore’s impact on performance was dramatic in every metric we measured. Even more impressive is how SANsymphony-V simplifies management and how easily it can make data center storage more resilient. With a single mouse click disk capacity is served and all the normal error-prone steps to configure, tune and set best paths for high availability get done auto-magically,” said Tony Palmer, senior engineer and analyst with Enterprise Strategy Group Lab.

In the ESG Lab Validation report, the benchmark tests confirmed that Microsoft SQL Server and Exchange workloads were able to improve their performance by nearly 5x as compared to running the same workloads on non-virtualized physical servers.

To further increase tier 1 business critical application responsiveness, companies often spend excessively on flash memory-based SSDs. SANsymphony-V’s auto-tiering and adaptive caching feature optimize performance and the use of these premium-priced flash resources alongside more modestly priced, higher capacity disk drives. SANsymphony-V constantly monitors I/O behavior and intelligently auto-selects between server memory caches, flash storage and traditional disk resources in real-time to ensure that the most suitable class or tier of storage device is assigned to each workload based on priorities and urgency..

Keynote Presentation, Hands-on-lab demos and ‘What’s new and important to know’ sessions
