DataCore storage virtualisation solutions convert standard Intel/AMD servers or virtual machines (VMs) into fully capable storage servers that virtualise disks and serve them over existing networks to application servers. They are simple to operate, take only minutes to install, and let users cost-effectively optimise, manage and protect data storage and disk space. DataCore storage virtualisation solutions are priced easily within reach of small and midsize enterprises, and scale affordably to meet the needs of even the most storage-intensive, Fortune 1000 data centres.
“Buy Only What You Need, When You Need It” – The DataCore ‘Investment Carry Forward’ Upgrade Advantage:
DataCore slashes upfront and lifecycle investment risks by allowing customers to build upon and carry forward their DataCore investment as they grow and upgrade their systems. While other vendors force the customer to buy all at once, charging high premiums for follow-on sales and upgrades, DataCore allows anyone to get started by purchasing just what their current needs dictate, and to easily upgrade as and when the need requires – without losing their existing investment or paying a premium for that luxury.
For example, a customer that starts with an entry-level SANmelody Virtual Infrastructure Foundation iSCSI SAN bundle (at around £500) can upgrade to a dual site disaster recovery or auto failover high availability solution (starting around £4,000), paying only the difference to upgrade. Later, if the customer decides to upgrade to DataCore’s large scale, enterprise storage networking solution, SANsymphony, the customer will again pay only the difference at that time.
DataCore’s Virtual Infrastructure Foundation (VIF) Acceleration Bundles range from £500 to £10,000 (UK list price), making it practical for almost any business to get started with server virtualisation backed by a DataCore virtual SAN. The packaged offerings are available from DataCore’s worldwide network of value-added resellers and include:
