DataCore hosts Customer Presentation from the Irish League of Credit Unions

DUBLIN and  LONDON – 1 May, 2012 – Live from the “IDC Virtualisation and Cloud Conference” in Dublin,  DataCore Software, one of the industry’s premier providers of storage virtualisation software, is presenting the latest innovations of its storage hypervisor, SANsymphony-V.   DataCore have additionally been invited to host a customer testimonial slot from the Irish League of Credit Unions, detailing how they successfully use DataCore’s SANsymphony-V storage hypervisor to virtualise, manage and protect the data storage at 500 credit unions.

Later this month on 22 May, DataCore will also join IDC to present at their “Evolution of the Datacentre Conference” in London.

Partnership and attendance of DataCore Software at IDC Europe Conferences is a natural fit for both organisations. The results of a recent European IDC survey conducted at the end of 2011 showed that 35.8 per cent of European companies continue to invest in their infrastructure despite a flat economic climate. Storage and virtualisation are the cited by IDC as the top investment categories. Wider infrastructure challenges such as Private Cloud, “Big Data,” and storage efficiency, are identified to dramatically change the short-term market adoption of storage virtualisation. Hence the reason why DataCore’s Regional Manager, Rupert Collier, will lead the discussion among attending IDC delegates on the virtues of changing the way organisations view storage, promoting effective data management through the deployment of a portable, independent storage hypervisor to alleviate their data centre issues. 

Rupert’s slot will be followed by a customer testimonial from the Irish League of Credit Unions, who provide infrastructure services for 500 credit unions (not-for-profit regional banks) across Ireland and who have successfully deployed DataCore’s SANsymphony-V in a mirrored environment to guarantee high availability, business continuity, DR and better performance.

“It’s great to be invited to the IDC conferences to present customer success stories,” noted Rupert Collier, Regional Manager, DataCore Software. “Given the IDC European state of the market survey late last year, it appears that having DataCore in attendance addresses delegates’ concerns on how to actively identify alternative ways to improve usage of existing storage assets and how to avoid proprietary vendor lock in when expansion inevitably occurs.  Most of our customers experience an immediate return on investment by implementing the storage hypervisor that delivers better utilisation and performance for their storage.  It is the perfect complement to dynamic, virtualised infrastructures and cloud environments which cannot afford failures or degradations to performance.”

DataCore’s SANsymphony-V storage hypervisor centralises, manages and optimises the use of heterogeneous storage devices – regardless of price, performance, model, or hardware – and integrates flash memory, SSDs, hard drives and cloud storage. The auto-tiering functionality automates the progression and demotion of data across different storage devices – based on performance and cost criteria. Also, by integrating a cloud array gateway, DataCore expands auto-tiering to the cloud level, so non-critical backup and archiving data can be outsourced.

IDC’s Dublin Conference occurs on 1 May 2012 at Dublin’s Burlington Hotel.
