Data Storage

Next Generation Virtualisation Software

DataCore SANsymphony software solves difficult storage-related challenges introduced by server and desktop virtualisation, cloud computing and more general expansion, business continuity, and disaster recovery initiatives. It creates an active, transparent virtualisation layer across disk storage devices to maximize the availability, performance and utilization of datacentres large and small.  The integrated set of centrally-managed data protection (CDP), provisioning, caching, replication and migration functions operate uniformly over different models and brands, assimilating current and future equipment non-disruptively.  You will find that DataCore SANsymphony software cost-effectively speeds up applications, delivers uninterrupted data access and extends the life of your tiered storage investments, while giving you peace of mind.

DataCore SANsymphony™ software, powered by DataCore™ Parallel I/O technology, is our flagship 10th generation storage virtualisation solution. In use at over 10,000+ customer sites, it maximises IT infrastructure performance, availability and utilisation by virtualising storage hardware

Virtualise Your External Storage Hardware

  • The SANsymphony software runs on standard x86 servers, providing one set of common storage services across all storage devices under its control.
  • The combined storage capacity of the different devices is managed as shared pools to eliminate wasted space.
  • Unlike storage systems communicate seamlessly reducing complexity and preventing downtime.
  • Data is replicated between nodes leaving no single point of failure.
  • You can seamlessly scale up and scale out choosing the most appropriate hardware manufacturer for each class of storage and servers.

Auto-tiering Dynamically Optimises Resources

DataCore allows you to create up to 15 tiers of storage and will automatically migrate data to the tier that delivers the right performance at the right time.

auto-tieringDE58A6D8B478

Not once a week, not once a day – this is ongoing, real time tuning of your data. Data can be automatically migrated from Flash to Enterprise Storage to Near-line or Bulk Storage and even off to the cloud for archival.

Best part is, this is done at the block level. While a database may require performance, not every block of data associated with it does. Share your Flash or high end storage between multiple applications and ensure that only the blocks of data in high demand reside on high performance storage systems.

YOUR INVESTMENTS IN HIGH PERFORMANCE STORAGE

New Hardware Isn't the Only Way to Increase Performance

performance-boostDataCore Can Make Your Existing Storage Hardware Run 10x Faster

The concept is simple, electronic memory is significantly faster than disk and even Flash. So run your applications in memory as long as possible! DataCore uses x86-64 CPUs and memory from DataCore nodes as powerful, inexpensive “mega caches”.

Performance acceleration is DataCore’s secret sauce. Our parallel I/O technology and caching algorithms intelligently anticipate reads, bringing blocks of data into RAM before your applications ask for them. Then we evaluate your usage patterns and won’t write anything back to disk until you are really done with it. When data does need to be written to disk, we coalesce random writes into sequential writes ensuring it gets down onto the disk as fast as possible.
