VMworld, the leading virtualization event, is where many in the IT industry go to learn about the latest technologies for next-generation data centers. DataCore is proud to be a Silver Sponsor of VMworld 2016 and will be exhibiting in booth #2406. We’ll have more 20 staff members on hand, including executives, technical specialists from our product and field teams, and our channel team.
Visitors to our booth will be able to experience firsthand the power of our unique Parallel I/O technology and learn how the technology can help increase the performance of Tier-1 business applications for higher productivity, as well as consolidate their infrastructure. DataCore will also demonstrate the synchronous mirroring capabilities of our Software-defined Storage and Hyper-converged solutions.
Our theme for VMworld 2016 is “learn how to #suckerpunch your I/O problems.” This theme is inspired by the fact that in today’s environments, 61% of companies experience unacceptably slow applications after virtualizing apps, with 77% naming I/O problems as the culprit. That’s where DataCore can help. Our customers experience sub-millisecond response for their most latency-sensitive and I/O-intensive Tier 1 workloads. I/O problems and slow storage are eliminated by incorporating DataCore software into the existing environment, while customers get the industry’s fastest response times and lowest cost.
With Parallel I/O, industry-standard x86 servers can fully harness the untapped computational power of multi-cores/multi-processors to process I/O in parallel. Unlike other technologies that process I/O serially, Parallel I/O serves all I/O requests, reads and writes, in a much faster way gain the essential I/O performance needed to drive demanding Tier-1 business application requirements.
Parallel I/O technology has broken world records for IOPS, price-performance and, most importantly, response times on the Storage Performance Council’s SPC-1 Benchmark for virtualized workloads in both hyper-converged and centralized SAN topologies. Not only that, but we have also achieved the fastest response time and best price-performance for a Highly Available Software-Defined Hyper-converged solution using off-the-shelf hardware. This is a much faster solution than All-Flash Arrays and at a much lower price. This means that our customers benefit from dramatically higher productivity and huge server consolidation savings.
DataCore will also be presenting in the VMworld Solutions Exchange Theater. Here are the details:
Title: Next-Generation Infrastructure Consolidation: Going Beyond Server Virtualization
Date: Monday, August 29th
Time: 1:50 PM – 2:10 PM
Location: Theater B
Speaker: Carlos Carreras, Senior Vice President of Strategic Alliances & Worldwide Business Development
Session Abstract: Server virtualization was limited in simplifying and consolidating data center infrastructure due to performance concerns with applications and I/O. In this session, we will show you how to get industry leading I/O response times and the best price/performance so you can reduce and simplify your infrastructure.
In addition, we will be having presentations at our booth focused on performance, VVols, hyper-convergence and virtualizing Microsoft SQL Server, as well featuring guest speakers from our alliance partners.
