Achieving the Full Business Value of Virtualization with a Scalable Software-Based Storage Virtualization Solution
“...A return on investment ROI of over 300% and Payback in fewer than 12 months, including deployment time.”
Removing Storage-Related Barriers to Server and Desktop Virtualization
“Choose storage virtualization software that is not tied to any one hardware vendor so that you will have the most latitude when selecting future devices.”
"Unanticipated storage hardware investments and inefficient storage use are often the most critical factors that bring server consolidation and desktop virtualization projects to a screeching halt. Storage virtualization software solutions like DataCore's SANsymphony-V allow IT teams to maximize the use of existing storage assets while also dramatically reducing administrative burdens. They frequently play the key role in ensuring the success of organizations' server and desktop virtualization efforts.“
- Richard Villars, Vice President of Storage and IT Executive Strategies, IDC.
“With the launch of SANsymphony-V, DataCore has redesigned its software for virtual server and desktop environments. However, DataCore's key benefits of extending the useful life of hardware, cutting hardware costs and removing vendor lock-in are still intact, and apply to both the physical and virtual world. By driving down storage cost and thus removing a major obstacle for adoption, DataCore makes server and desktop virtualization affordable for the broader IT community."

The Business Value of Software-based Storage Virtualization
Dealing with storage is one of the most critical technical and economic roadblocks to broad adoption of virtualization in many organizations. Limits include the up-front direct cost associated with replacing storage with complex networked storage systems, the added operational cost of managing networked storage systems, and the inherent inefficiencies of many of these storage systems. Storage virtualization software such as DataCore's SANsymphony-V addresses many of these challenges.
