DataCore Customer Testimonial

Der Hauptvorteil liegt in der Unabhängigkeit von den Hardware-Produktlebenszyklen. Ganz nebenbei erhält man eine bessere Skalierbarkeit, denn ein Storage-Server ist viel einfacher aufzurüsten als eine Appliance. Die höhere Leistung – trotz Microsoft Betriebssystem als Basis – hat mich am meisten überrascht.
