FORT LAUDERDALE, FL: Enterprise Strategy Group’s (ESG) Lab announces evaluation and test results of DataCore’s SANsymphony and Hyper-converged Virtual SAN software.
Through the evaluation and tests, ESG validates a company’s flexibility, ease of management of infrastructure-wide storage virtualization and hyper-converged solutions for the data center, in a heterogeneous, highly virtualized environment. DataCore has successfully demonstrated the criteria required for the validations.
DataCore is a provider of parallel software-defined storage and hyper-converged Virtual SAN solutions. ESG’s evaluation consists of parameters that include:
Enterprise-class Hyper-converged Data Infrastructure
ESG Lab found that virtualizing infrastructure with DataCore Hyper-converged Virtual SAN was intuitive and straightforward. ESG also tested, reviewed and reported on DataCore’s ability to go beyond traditional hyper-converged performance limits and run demanding enterprise-class application and storage workloads.
Drives Fastest Response Times and Industry best Price Performance:
DataCore’s parallel I/O software technology was found by ESG to have the fastest response times in the industry.
Simplifies VMware vSphere Storage Management:
Self-Provisioning with Virtual Volumes (VVols)- DataCore’s self-provisioning VVols are compatible with any storage and makes it VVol capable allowing VMware vSphere administrator to self-provision virtual volumes from virtual storage pools.
Automates Infrastructure-wide Storage Tiering to Maximize Cost:
Effective Performance: ESG Lab also validated the business value of DataCore’s automated storage tiering. All performance testing was completed using test tools to simulate a typical OLTP workload.
Supports Continuous Availability, Metro-wide Clustering, Remote Disaster Recovery, Advanced Data Protection and Automated Failover and Self-healing Functionality:
DataCore SANsymphony and Hyper-converged Virtual SAN passed the most stringent business continuity and disaster recovery requirements. Synchronous mirroring across metropolitan areas, automated failover and self-healing, full and incremental snapshots, roll-back in time Continuous Data Protection (CDP), and asynchronous remote replication to distant disaster recovery sites can all be used without being dependent on any specific model or brand of storage device.
