Local Govt loves Datacore

“A total virtualization environment across servers and storage really gives us tremendous flexibility in terms of what we can do,” K.C. Roestenberg, director, business IT shared services, County of Orange.

The Orange County Data Center (OCDC) hosts many different servers – both virtual and physical – using a combination of VMware and physical hosts that support other outlying agencies within the County of Orange. Before DataCore was added to virtualize, consolidate and mange the SANs, OCDC had two HP Enterprise Virtual Arrays (EVAs) storing their data and they had just finished purchasing their third EVA – supporting their third separate storage area network.

Bottom-line:
OCDC had three business objectives for deploying DataCore’s SANsymphony™: 1) Consolidating multiple SANs for ease of management and improved utilization; 2) Alleviating data migration issues from SAN-to-SAN and making that more efficient; 3) The third reason for DataCore’s adoption had to do with disaster recovery. This is more of a long-term goal; however, in the next fiscal year of the data center, the IT team will be implementing a disaster recovery site. When IT managers at OCDC were made aware of DataCore’s asynchronous capabilities with AIM, they saw the opportunity to build a SAN-to-SAN replication-type infrastructure without having to stick with HP EVA or any other hardware-specific type of storage. A remote site DataCore mirrored SAN scenario will enable OCDC to be able to leverage older storage solutions or even direct-attached storage at a DR site.
