FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida – February 9, 2009 – DataCore Software, the leading provider of storage virtualization solutions, today announced that its specific configurations of DataCore storage virtualization solutions are now VMware Ready Certified(tm). “This certification assures resellers, joint customers and prospects of both companies of compatibility and interoperability with the latest features of VMware Infrastructure,” said James Price, vice president of product and channel marketing, DataCore Software. “DataCore’s VMware Ready(tm) certification underscores our commitment to maintaining and expanding the most comprehensive business continuity and disaster recovery solutions in the industry.”

A Winning Combination for Economic Efficiency: VMware and DataCore

The VMware Ready Certified(tm) logo program recognizes VMware partner products that have been certified by VMware to work with VMware’s products, making it easy for customers to identify solutions that can be used with confidence in VMware environments. DataCore’s VMware Ready Certified(tm) storage virtualization solutions provide radically simple High-Availability for VMware customers.

“DataCore SANmelody has revolutionized and simplified the way we approach and manage storage,” said Robert Wayt, Network Manager, Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS) Okinawa. “It’s fast, flexible, easy and efficient. We no longer have a server with all the internal disk space ‘hard-wired’ and solely dedicated to itself. We can network and fully use the storage that we purchased and avoid waste.”

Storage is one of the most critical resources in Virtual Infrastructure and is often limited by conventional SAN architectures. Moreover, system administrators spend more money and more time managing their storage infrastructures rather than managing their business. DataCore’s radically simple, high availability storage virtualization solutions reduce infrastructure complexity and cost of ownership while maximizing business agility for VMware customers.
