IBM HyperSwap and SVC. Datacore was able to virtualize and administer our different storage enclosures with a single pane of glass and perform a synchronous replication between our two sites, something that IBM HyperSwap and SVC weren’t able to.

System Administrator, Medium Enterprise Media & Entertainment Company

SANsymphony™ Customer Testimonial

We used HP Eva disk arrays with native features for data mirroring. In comparison to DataCore it was very expensive, not so flexible and not so stable solution.

How would you describe DataCore SDS to a friend or colleague?:

Nous avons installés Datacore SANSymphony en 2007. Au début c’était pour rendre compatible deux stockage différent (un NAS HP et un SAN DELL). Après en 2012 nous avons mis les 2 même baies (DELL MD3600F) avec peu d’intelligence embarquée, vu que c’est Datacore qui fait le travail. Nous avons déjà eu l’occasion d’éprouver le PCA à plusieurs reprise (tempête Xynthia par exemple). J’en suis plus que satisfait et je le recommande.

In a few sentences, describe the biggest benefits you have seen since implementing DataCore storage virtualization software:

Au début nous avions juste la licence de base. Donc le PCA fonctionnait très bien et en 2012 nous avons ajouté la licence Tiering. Les performances ont été accrues surtout qu’on peut attribué le stockage SSD au VM que l’on souhaite.
