Datacore develops and delivers the industry’s first hypervisor for storage. The Company’s storage virtualization software delivers a radically simple, high-availability solution to meet vSphere shared storage requirements. The software abstracts storage into idealized, virtual disks akin to virtual machines. It pools and mirrors disk blocks across available devices, despite differences in make and model. In the process, it speeds up I/O response and throughput using extensive SAN-wide caching. This helps take optimum advantage of VMware’s full suite of capabilities. A plug-in for VMware vCenter allows non-disruptive provisioning, sharing, cloning, replications and expanding virtual disks among physical servers and virtual machines. SANsymphony-V yields high availability, fast performance and full utilization of storage assets, making it an essential element of VMware Virtual Infrastructure deployments.
