Portable, Feature-Packed VM Starter SAN for all virtualization vendors





It is cute to see this title though:

DataCore Announces Portable, Feature-Packed VM Starter SAN That Runs on VMware, Microsoft, Oracle, SUN, and Citrix XenServer Virtualization Platforms, Hardware Servers and Blades
Actually reading: Folks we support anything, even your grandma's external disk with a ganny-SAN ;-). But seriously I don't blame these guys at all, the industry is so totally confused that complementary vendors want to do everyone at once!


Market Impact

No other vendor makes embracing storage virtualization as easy and as risk-free as DataCore does, period. Many vendors are talking about one off virtual appliances. DataCore software is portable offering the best out-of-the-box experience on the market, whereby any DataCore solution runs on any physical or virtual hardware of choice: hardware servers, blade servers or VMs. Users can mix-and-match any hardware in their deployments. Moreover, with DataCore all major VM vendors are supported VMware, Oracle, Citrix, Sun, Microsoft, etc. DataCore not only runs on these VM environments, but the virtual storage from the DataCore SAN can be consolidated and served to MacOS, Netware, Linux, and the many flavors of UNIX and Microsoft providing optimum storage resource utilization. The new VM Starter SAN resets the industry price point for SAN functionality and storage virtualization. Moreover, as with any of DataCores solutions, an investment in the VM Starter SAN can be credited towards future upgrades providing unprecedented investment protection.

An entry point for true High Availability, fail-safe data protection and Disaster Recovery in one package

We make it simple for users to get a fully functional SAN at an affordable price. The major SANmelody features are now integrated together in a series of feature-packed, easy-to-use, single server bundles, said George Teixeira, president and CEO, DataCore Software. The VM Starter SAN package is value-packed. Its the ideal way to make storage virtual, portable, mobile and flexible so that it can fully complement and protect virtual servers.

A single VM Starter SAN is value-packed and can thin provision storage capacity, migrate data via SANmotion, accelerate storage performance, and create high-speed snapshots for fast disk backup and recovery. For high-availability business continuity and disaster recovery solutions, users would buy two feature-packed bundles. For remote site disaster recovery, users would buy two VM Starter packages one for the primary location and one for the remote site. Either approach provides cost effective data protection and improves business uptime for the many systems or VMs utilizing the DataCore powered SAN.
