Software Defined Storage

Software Defined Storage Features & Benefits Summary

DataCore has spent 18 years developing a comprehensive set of storage services that are hardware agnostic and provide these powerful functions infrastructure-wide and across multiple vendors server and storage offerings. No other vendor can offer this functionality in a universally compatible format. Our storage services can be found in our SANsymphony & DataCore Hyper-converged Virtual SAN products.

Data MigrationTransparently moves and migrates data; Allows non-stop business operations during datacentre relocations, VM moves, system refreshes

PERFORMANCE
feature-icon_high-speed-caching High Speed Caching Accelerates disk I/O and business-critical application performance by empowering existing storage assets
feature-icon_auto-tiering Auto-Tiering Makes intelligent and automatic usage optimisations based on cost and performance across different types of storage
random-write-accelerator Random Write Accelerator Significantly increases performance for workloads characterized by many random writes, such as frequently updated databases, ERP & OLTP system
qos-(quality-of-service)-controls Quality of Service (QoS) Controls Ensures high-priority workloads meet SLAs with predictable I/O performance by regulating resources consumed by lower priority requests
 AVAILABILITY
feature-icon_sync-mirroring Sync Mirroring Zero downtime, zero touch high availability by continuously mirroring active/active copies between physically-separate locations accessible to local/metro clusters as shared disks
feature-icon_async-remote-replication Async Remote Replication Fast, simple, remote-site disaster recovery and migration; Maintains distant copies up-to-date without impacting local performance
feature-icon_continuous-data-protection--amp-recovery Continuous Data Protection & Recovery Businesses can roll back to a previous point-in-time prior to a disaster, virus attack or other disruptive event without doing an explicit backup
feature-icon_online-snapshot Snapshots / Backups Captures point-in-time images quickly across storage devices; Efficiently clone system images, speed-up recovery and enable off-line analysis
 EFFICIENCY
feature-icon_virtual-disk-pooling Storage Pooling Increases storage utilisation and enables cost savings by allocating just enough space just-in-time
feature-icon_thin-provisioning Thin Provisioning Increases storage utilisation and enables cost savings by allocating just enough space just-in-time
feature-icon_virtual-disk-migration Data Migration Transparently moves and migrates data; Allows non-stop business operations during datacentre relocations, VM moves, system refreshes
deduplication Deduplication / Compression Reduces space needed to store multiple copies of the same data
 MANAGEMENT
feature-icon_cloud-gateway Cloud Integration Access Cloud storage from different vendors; Extends disk pool to external clouds; Gateway supports auto-tiering to cloud storage
feature-icon_unified-storage-nas-san Unified Storage (NAS/SAN) Supports fast, high-availability NAS for file sharing [NFS/SMB (CIFS)]
feature-icon_1centralized-management Centralised Management Greater productivity and administrative efficiency; Infrastructure-wide control and monitoring of pooled storage resources from one console
feature-icon_1analysis-amp--reporting Analysis & Reporting Offers real-time and historical analysis, ‘heat maps’ to identify I/O bottlenecks; Reporting for capacity planning, tuning and asset tracking
