Enterprise-class Virtual SAN Performance, Availability and Scaling
The DataCore™ SANsymphony-V10 virtual SAN software can scale performance to more than 50 Million IOPS and to 32 Petabytes of capacity across a cluster of 32 servers, making it one of the most powerful and scalable systems in the marketplace.
DataCore’s new Virtual SAN is a software-only solution that automates and simplifies storage management and provisioning while delivering enterprise-class functionality, automated recovery and significantly faster performance. It is easy to set up and runs on new or existing x86 servers where it creates a shared storage pool out of the internal Flash and disk storage resources available to that server. This means the DataCore™ Virtual SAN can be cost-effectively deployed as an overlay, without the need to make major investments in new hardware or complex SAN gear.
DataCore virtual SANs are a cost-effective solution for clustered servers, VDI desktop deployments, remote disaster recovery and multi-site virtual server projects, as well as demanding database and business application workloads running on server platforms.
