DataCore Updates Its SANsymphony Storage Virtualization Platform
DataCore Announced That it Has Updated its SANsymphony and its Traveller CDP Add-on Capability

DataCore announced that it has updated its flagship SANsymphony enterprise-class, open storage networking platform and its Traveller CDP (continuous data protection) add-on capability. The new update releases are available immediately. DataCore's SANsymphony provides manufacturer-independent SAN-wide services designed to virtualize storage and meet the needs of larger scale SAN infrastructures and enterprise storage management. Traveller is a continuous data protection, recovery and time-shifting software that enables SANsymphony based systems to use or recover Virtual Machines or data by going back in time to restore systems to a previous good state.

Notable Enhancements: 8GB FC Support, Performance for CDP and Replication, Usability, Improved Thin Provisioning Monitoring, Live Data Migration Services and Better Virtual Server Integration
This SANsymphony update incorporates many customer requested enhancements including support for the latest 8 Gigabyte Fibre Channel cards, improved usability features, more powerful SAN-wide group volume configuration commands, new oversubscription monitoring services and ‘Hot-swap' capabilities to simplify the management of thin provisioning storage pools. Several user interface enhancements have improved the SANsymphony configuration tools and the Asynchronous IP Mirroring (AIM) features in terms of ease of use for management and administration. Many aspects of the product have also been redesigned to boost overall performance for both asynchronous replication over IP connections and for Traveller CDP features that are available in the product update releases.

8GB Fibre Channel SAN Support
With this update DataCore has qualified its dual-mode driver solution for SANsymphony enabling both host initiator and target connectivity support for the latest Emulex and Q-logic high speed 8Gb/s HBAs. These new HBAs provide the I/O scalability necessary to support an increase in the number of applications running on a virtualized server. Additionally, these 8Gb/s HBAs provide the increased I/O processing speed and throughput needed by large business-critical databases and transaction processing applications to scale to support additional users and larger database files.

Thin Provisioning and Migration Services Improvements
DataCore continues to advance thin provisioning and migration services beyond its industry counterparts. Cases in point include the following:

  • Over-subscription monitoring services for thin provisioning
  • Thin provisioning ‘Hot-Swap" migration
  • Live data migration
