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

By using DataCore's virtual volume management services, those volumes can be mirrored to another SANsymphony system – providing the enterprise with all of the benefits DataCore is known for: data is mirrored, system speed is increased by way of DataCore caching algorithms, administrators have the advantages of being able to work with thin-provisioned volumes, etc. "All of the inherent capabilities and benefits of SANsymphony can be available to an enterprise, if it simply passes the volumes containing the ‘live application data' through DataCore's SANsymphony," said John Bocskor, vice president of product development, DataCore Software. "When that data volume is passed through SANsymphony it is simply remapped to the application server so the server can immediately run the server applications. While the application server is running DataCore's software adds value to those volumes – Caching performance, High Availability, Snapshot, AIM, etc."

Storage Array Data Mover: Live Data Migration Services – Monthly Use Model
DataCore also offers "Live Data Migration Services" in a pay-by-the-use business model. As opposed to buying a long term SANsymphony license, users can use what they need on a monthly basis, through its professional services partners. "DataCore can do this because we support heterogeneous environments and because we are hardware agnostic," said George Teixeira, president and CEO, DataCore Software. "There is no real motivation for the hardware storage array vendors to make it easy to migrate data off of their platforms! DataCore on the other hand has every motivation to enable users to use whatever platform they please and to migrate data ‘at will' – from any platform, to any platform."

Live Data Migration Services are offered through authorized DataCore partners. These services are priced on a per month basis fee depending on the amount of storage capacity being migrated from one brand of hardware to another.

Updates Are Enhanced for Virtual Server Environments
All DataCore software maximizes the value from IT assets and boosts business productivity. At the same time, DataCore technology helps users get the most out of their investments with Virtual Machines (VM) by eliminating the inflexibility of physical storage. The enhancements described above have all been tested and optimized for use with Citrix XenServer, VMware, Microsoft VS, Oracle VM, SUN VM, Virtual Iron virtualization platforms, as well as Intel/AMD based hardware servers and blades.

DataCore's storage domain architecture supports virtual server deployments such that applications running on VMs can be guaranteed quality of service levels in terms of storage performance and capacity to each of the VMs.

Not just the oversubscription monitoring services, the whole gamut of migration services and storage domains are optimized for virtual server environments, but Traveller CDP itself has been enhanced for use in virtual server environments as well. SANsymphony, running with Traveller CDP features turned on allows network and system administrators to "dial back the clock" and get to a previous state of any VM that resides on a DataCore virtual volume. "Here is a way to go back in time and recover virtual machines or data," explained Teixeira. "What if you have a VMware server with 20 different VMs on it and the machine died? With DataCore SANsymphony and its Traveller CDP capability, you can easily and quickly roll back time and save those 20 machines."
