Thousands of VMware Customers Realize DataCore Software’s Compelling Value
In addition, DataCore will highlight why thousands of VMware customers select DataCore solutions and will be joined at the presentation by n|Frame – a joint VMware and DataCore customer, who will discuss the compelling benefits of going virtual for both servers and storage. n|Frame is Indiana’s premier data center and Cloud IT infrastructure solutions provider and offers high availability computing environments through a comprehensive suite of managed technology services and high performance network connectivity.
n|Frame: A Cloud IT Infrastructure and Managed SAN Offering – Built on DataCore
n|Frame offers a robust suite of Cloud and managed services on top of its five-nines data center. It was in acknowledging the importance of a virtual SAN installed in tandem with server virtualization infrastructure that led n|Frame to pursue offering a practical SAN solution to small-to-medium sized businesses (SMBs) so they could increase their adoption of VMware and DataCore to overcome the cost and productivity issues of managing servers and storage growth within the firm’s environments.
“I see a lot of value in what server virtualization has to offer. However, if you are shortsighted in trying to implement server virtualization without also looking to virtualize your SAN, you have only addressed half your potential problems,” states Michael Seals, director of managed services at n|Frame. “It is just a natural progression that both server and SAN virtualization are implemented simultaneously to seamlessly virtualize the entire environment.”
n|Frame selected DataCore SANsymphony as the product of choice for their facility-based SAN solution in August 2007. Since the initial product launch, n|Frame has continued to expand and refine their SAN offerings and has many satisfied customers.

Other Recent VMware Users Herald DataCore
Thousands of customers around the world are relying on DataCore and VMware to eliminate budgeting and technical roadblocks that once jeopardized their virtualization plans. More importantly, DataCore has enabled them to realize the business benefits that prompted them to migrate to a virtualized infrastructure in the first place.
For some enterprises, DataCore has meant the difference between the success and failure in their virtualization projects. In the case of ISCO Industries, a worldwide polyethylene pipe distributor, the company is running nearly fully virtual after implementing DataCore and VMware to virtualize the majority of its desktops, servers and storage infrastructure. Deployed in combination with Xiotech storage, DataCore’s SANsymphony-V added a new level of flexibility and productivity and most importantly it addressed the persistent performance problems as well as the capacity management issues that ISCO Industries faced with its previously existing storage area network (SAN).
“Virtualization is all about the advantages of software to cut costs and insulate applications and users from disruptive changes and business risks,” explains Kim Byram, director of business and information systems at ISCO Industries. “That’s what DataCore storage virtualization software does and why it is the logical third dimension of a virtualization strategy alongside server and desktop virtualization.”
