“I run a very small hyper-converged virtual environment when compared to what this software is capable of running. I have now been running it for almost 2 years now and it has run flawlessly in my VMware environment. What little support I have needed has been EXCELLENT and that was only when I installed the latest updates. I have had no complaints from the employees with regards to slowness as to what programs that reside on the 2 servers that run the DataCore software. It has been a very excellent experience with DataCore!”

"Brilliant SAN Software"

What do you like best?

SANSymphony provides 100% uptime from it's mirrored disks and redundant paths.This means that maintenance can be performed at any time on disk subsystems without interruption to business systems. This coupled with it's vendor agnostic hardware support, speed from it's data caching and easy to administer interface make it an excellent product for data storage. Datacore support is very good, they have a very quick response times and good diagnostics are built right into the software to analyse any issues that may occur. I've found a lot of support is also offered outside the scope of SANSymphony, for instance host configuration tips and they showed me a brilliant reference in their knowledge base for fibre optic grades recently - not something I'd expect a software vendor to offer!

“All needed documentation is available online: this helps to build projects quickly and effectively. Top-level tech support with excellent response time. Product functionalities and management tools are very good. Full-software licensing policy makes us free to move to a completely different hardware solution in the future if needed.”

"DataCore SDS – Cost Effective Freedom from Vendor Lock-in"

IT Architect Medium Enterprise Banking Company

“The main benefit of DataCore’s solution is the free choice of storage types to use. You’re not tied down by a massive and expensive dual and replicating System from the same vendor. You can choose different vendors and storage types to gain your needed performance and data availability/security. With a moderate setting of ‘use really only NEEDED features’ you will be able to receive a high-quality solution with performance for all your needs.”

Dawid Darnowski, ATOS Global Delivery Center Polska Storage Administrator

“As it virtualizes all physical storage, we can upgrade our equipment in small steps. i.e. we don’t need to buy a new all-flash-super-performing array – we can start with replacing one RAID group with SSD drives and create a new tier on it.”
