Overview

DataCore enterprise-class software-defined storage (SDS) platforms, SANsymphony and Hyper-Converged Virtual SAN, provide a high-performance, highly available and agile storage infrastructure with the lowest total cost of ownership. Compared to enterprise storage arrays and other SDS products, DataCore offers the following advantages:
- Go faster: Faster I/O for databases, enterprise applications, and virtualized environments means more transactions processed, more data analyzed quicker, and increased customer satisfaction, leading to more revenue.
- Always on: Highly-available infrastructure dramatically reduces application downtime, avoiding business disruptions and lost sales.
Save money: Consolidate and simplify your storage infrastructure. Run more workloads with better performance and availability by pooling diverse storage assets, deferring hardware refreshes and simplifying administration. This results in remarkable upfront cost savings (CapEx) as well as savings on ongoing operations (OpEx, power, cooling and space).
- Less risk: High-performance, highly available, agile infrastructure means efficient operations, reduction in disruptions to operations, and productive users (employees, customers and partners).
The result is faster performance, higher availability and greater cost savings across your organization.
