DataCore™ Hyper-converged Virtual SAN


Create a high-performance, cost-effective hyper-converged infrastructure using DAS or internal storage on your cluster of hosts


Industry-Leading Performance

DataCore shattered the Performance and Price-Performance mark for hyper-converged and storage solutions using the industry’s most prestigious benchmark; the Storage Performance Council’s SPC-1 (which measures IOPS and latency against database/transaction processing workloads)[1].


High-Availability / Multi-node / Fibre Channel


Ideal for Remote Office / Branch Office (ROBO) environments

Choose DataCore Hyper-converged Virtual SAN for environments that require high availability in a low-cost, small footprint, as well as latency-sensitive environments where you want to move data close to your database applications, but need to share it across a cluster of servers.



Scale out from

2 to 64 Nodes

Scale up to

64 PB

Accelerate IOPS up to

100 million


Hyper-converged Virtual SAN Use Cases

Consider DataCore for:



A) Small Server Clusters in Remote Sites, Branch Offices and Space-constrained Computer Rooms

 

Put the internal storage capacity of your servers to work as a shared resource while protecting your data against server outages simply by adding DataCore Virtual SAN software.


B) Latency-sensitive database applications

Speed up response and throughput by caching reads and writes from fast server RAM memory and keeping data close to the applications.


Combine Hyper-converged systems with SAN and Cloud Storage into an Integrated Storage Infrastructure

Leverage resources from all and manage them centrally from the same console to scale storage capacity independently of compute and memory.



Integrated Storage Architecture

Enjoy all of the rich services you require for the fastest performance, highest availability, and optimal capacity utilization. Perfected over two decades and deployed at over 10,000 customers in large data centers, now available for your DataCore Virtual SAN.
