Consider DataCore any time you wish to:
Virtualize your existing storage hardware
Create converged storage from servers and internal storage
Integrate Flash/SSDs with existing storage
The SANsymphony software runs on standard x86 servers, providing one set of common storage services across all storage devices under its control.
The combined storage capacity of the different devices is managed as shared pools to eliminate wasted space.
Unlike storage systems communicate seamlessly reducing complexity and preventing downtime.
Data is replicated between nodes leaving no single point of failure.
You can seamlessly scale up and scale out choosing the most appropriate hardware manufacturer for each class of storage and servers.
DataCore allows you to create up to 15 tiers of storage and will automatically migrate data to the tier that delivers the right performance at the right time
Not once a week, not once a day – this is ongoing, real time tuning of your data. Data can be automatically migrated from Flash to Enterprise Storage to Nearline or Bulk Storage and even off to the cloud for archival.
Best part is, this is done at the block level. While a database may require performance, not every block of data associated with it does. Share your Flash or high end storage between multiple applications and ensure that only the blocks of data in high demand reside on high performance storage systems.
DATACORE AUTO-TIERING TECHNOLOGY MINIMIZES
YOUR INVESTMENTS IN HIGH PERFORMANCE STORAGE
DataCore Can Make Your Existing Storage Hardware Run 10 Times Faster
The concept is simple, electronic memory is significantly faster than disk and even Flash. So run your applications in memory as long as possible! DataCore uses x86-64 CPUs and memory from DataCore nodes as powerful, inexpensive “mega caches”.
Performance acceleration is DataCore’s secret sauce. Our parallel I/O technology and caching algorithms intelligently anticipate reads, bringing blocks of data into RAM before your applications ask for them. Then we evaluate your usage patterns and won’t write anything back to disk until you are really done with it. When data does need to be written to disk, we coalesce random writes into sequential writes ensuring it gets down onto the disk as fast as possible.
Across your entire infrastructure
