Storage Virtualization: Intel, DataCore enable OEMs

ntel ESAA is a collaborative alliance that streamlines technical certification and validation of reliable, high-quality, server solutions to end user customers. Intel ESAA allows its member OEM and channel partners to quickly deliver pre-configured, trusted solutions to their customers. They are assured that Intel ESAA solutions consist of equipment and software from Intel trusted technology partners, and end user customers are assured the solution is supported.

“Through the ESAA Program, we hope to reach deeply into the Intel community with DataCore storage solutions that are affordable for SMB, but have the features and functionalities the market expects to find only in expensive, high-end hardware arrays and SAN offerings, such as storage virtualization and management, thin provisioning, and auto-failover, high availability for VMware and other virtual machine platforms,” said Scott Margol, vice president of corporate development, DataCore Software. “We want to empower ESAA partners to compete aggressively for that business.”

“Bringing DataCore into the ESAA Program and equipping partners with Intel server building blocks, gives our channel new revenue opportunities and enhances their capabilities to reach deeper into new market segments in storage virtualization, storage management, automated capacity provisioning, data protection as well as business continuity,” said Dave Brown, marketing director of Intel enterprise platforms and services division. “DataCore storage virtualization is a great complement to the validated Intel Xeon server-based virtualization solutions Intel can offer its partners through our ESAA program.”
