DataCore Software Achieves Cisco Compatibility Certification with the Cisco Solution Partner Program

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., March 3, 2015 DataCore Software, a leader and premier provider of Software-Defined Storage and Tier-1 Enterprise Storage Virtualization, today announced that its SANsymphony™-V, version 10.0.1, has successfully achieved Cisco Interoperability Verification Testing (IVT) compatibility certification with Cisco’s Unified Computing System, the UCS C-Series Rack-Servers. The Internet of Everything (IoE) continues to bring together people, processes, data and things to enhance the relevancy of network connections. As a member of the Cisco® Solution Partner Program, DataCore Software is able to quickly create and deploy solutions to enhance the capabilities, performance and management of the network to capture value in the IoE.

SANsymphony-V is DataCore’s proven 10th-generation software platform with 25,000+ licenses deployed at more than 10,000 customer production sites globally. Rigorous testing of SANsymphony-V and Cisco UCS demonstrated easily deployed storage solutions that can service both virtualized and non-virtualized clients in multi-site configurations. DataCore and Cisco partners can now provide 100% Cisco hardware solutions, end to end, covering storage, network, and compute needs in order to provide complete datacenter solutions with Tier-1 enterprise storage capabilities. These solutions provide enterprise-class storage features for both self-contained hyper-converged setups as well as architectures that allow independent scaling of storage and compute, all connected by a Cisco-powered network fabric. Optional new or legacy external block storage systems from third parties can be easily integrated into these solutions according to business requirements.

“Cisco UCS has become a leading force in enterprise computing infrastructure, and DataCore is excited to extend its capabilities to include the delivery of Tier-1 enterprise storage services to business customers,” said Steve Houck, COO of DataCore Software. “Software-Defined Storage allows organizations to have greater choice and protect their existing investments. SANsymphony-V and Cisco UCS combine to deliver a comprehensive, powerful, yet intuitive platform that allows organizations to address their storage needs and derive more value across their complete infrastructure.”

The Cisco Solution Partner Program, part of the Cisco Partner Ecosystem, unites Cisco with third-party independent hardware and software vendors to deliver integrated solutions to joint customers. As a Solution Partner, DataCore Software offers a complementary product offering and has started to collaborate with Cisco to meet the needs of joint customers.
