Offers Comprehensive Architecture to Manage and Optimize All Tiers of Storage. Partnership with TwinStrata Integrates Cloud Gateway for Backup, Archive and Low Cost Off-Premise Tiered Cloud Storage.
DataCore Software today announced it has extended its storage hypervisor architecture with functionality that empowers enterprise customers to optimize the utilization and performance of their on-site assets and take full advantage of low cost, virtually unlimited ‘pay as you go’ storage in the cloud. The DataCore™SANsymphony™ -V storage hypervisor now integrates seamlessly with the CloudArray® cloud storage gateway from TwinStrata, the leading innovator of cloud-based data storage, allowing a simple, transparent and cost-effective way to manage, offload and augment on-premise storage environments with space and power saving storage located in the cloud.
“Moving a storage infrastructure into a cloud paradigm can be a struggle for data center operators. The use of a heterogeneous storage virtualization solution provides a transition path that preserves investments and adds cloud operating semantics,” said Gene Ruth, research director and senior storage analyst for Gartner. “This particular solution combines storage virtualization, tiering of diverse devices and a bridge capability, allowing organizations to choose and offload less critical storage, backup and archive data onto cloud storage providers.”
