DataCore Software SANsymphony-V Storage Hypervisor Is Optimized for Microsoft System Center 2012; Simplifies Storage Management for Private Clouds

System Center Alliance Partnership Enables Administrators to Deploy Smarter Private Clouds that Benefit from Richer Features, Including the Ability to Manage Itself

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – August 7, 2012 – DataCore Software, the storage hypervisor leader, premier provider of storage virtualization software and a Microsoft System Center Alliance partner, today announced that the company’s SANsymphony™-V Storage Hypervisor is optimized to work with Microsoft System Center 2012, allowing enterprises and data center operators to realize a new level of performance, manageability and ease-of-use from their private cloud deployments.

DataCore’s SANsymphony-V Storage Hypervisor allows Microsoft System Center 2012 users to gain the benefits of high availability and resiliency, disaster recovery, storage optimization and automated tiering, and capacity on-demand all through an intuitive and simplistic storage management interface. Together with Microsoft System Center 2012, IT administrators enjoy a high-performance private cloud environment requiring minimal management and time resources. End users are able to request resources, including storage provisioning with minimal IT involvement, creating an automated, self-service environment that can manage itself, including self-repair. This leaves administrators with more time to devote to their core functions versus managing the tedious complexities of their network infrastructure.

“Microsoft continues to partner with the world’s leading solution providers to bring companies the IT tools they need for achieving business goals,” said Andrew Conway, director of System Center product management at Microsoft. “DataCore’s SANsymphony-V Storage Hypervisor is a great complement to System Center. Together, they are helping businesses create, manage and monitor dynamic private cloud environments and reap the full benefits of their virtualization initiatives.”

Microsoft System Center 2012 is a comprehensive management platform that enables enterprises to more easily and efficiently manage their IT environments, including server infrastructure and client devices. It allows organizations to benefit from both private and public cloud computing while still satisfying their unique business needs. System Center 2012 organizes existing IT assets (network, storage, computing) into a private cloud that is seamlessly integrated with public cloud services—a hybrid cloud that can be managed from a single pane of glass.

The DataCore SANsymphony-V Management Pack for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager is also available for use with System Center 2012. It enables administrators to easily monitor and manage the diverse storage assets virtualized by SANsymphony-V alongside many other resources and facets of their data center.

“The DataCore SANsymphony-V Storage Hypervisor enhances the value of diverse storage resources by unifying advanced services, including provisioning, auto-tiering, replication and performance acceleration, through a common storage virtualization layer,” said Carlos Carreras, vice president of alliances & business development at DataCore Software. “Our 14 year history of creating innovative solutions designed to work on Microsoft platforms has enabled DataCore to offer a lock-tight integration with System Center 2012 in a way that’s powerful and valuable for customers.”

DataCore’s SANsymphony-V Storage Hypervisor complements Microsoft’s virtualization solutions by harnessing the native capabilities of Windows Server 2012 and Windows Hyper-V Server to address critical storage challenges.

DataCore is a long term member of the Microsoft System Center Alliance which reinforces its support for and integration with System Center 2012, enabling enterprises to achieve their virtualization goals and take advantage of the cloud.
