DataCore Software to Present the Compelling Benefits of Auto-Tiering Software for Optimal SSD Utilization at Flash Memory Summit 2012

DataCore VP, Carlos M. Carreras Will Show How Automated Storage Tiering Improves System Efficiency and Performance While Reducing Storage Costs

SANTA CLARA, Calif. and FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – August 16, 2012 – DataCore Software, the storage hypervisor leader and premier provider of storage virtualization software, today announced that Vice President of Alliances & Business Development Carlos M. Carreras will explain the key advantages of automated storage tiering across a range of storage scenarios at the Flash Memory Summit 2012, being held August 21-23 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif. This presentation will take place on Thursday, August 23 as part of Session 304-B (an open session), from 4:40 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. PT.


In his session, “Automated Storage Tiering: Optimizing Flash Memory in Today’s SAN Environments,” Carreras will discuss how organizations are deriving substantial performance benefits and cost savings from auto-tiering, whether in fully virtualized IT environments, private or public clouds, or more conventional physical configurations. He will also describe how auto-tiering is enabling businesses to fully leverage and optimize flash memory and SSDs in in today’s heterogeneous SAN environments.


Carreras has been with DataCore Software since 2003 and has more than 15 years of executive level sales expertise in the storage industry, in a variety of geographies.


Automated storage tiering is a dynamic process that monitors I/O behavior, determines frequency of use, and based on these findings, moves blocks of information to the most suitable class or tier of storage device. SANsymphony™-V, including newly released version 9.0, automatically “promotes” the most frequently used data blocks to the fastest tier while “demoting” less frequently used blocks to the slowest tier, including cloud based ones, thereby maximizing storage efficiencies and system performance while minimizing storage-related costs.


For the past 15 years, DataCore has developed sophisticated storage virtualization technologies to overcome device-specific differences and limitations, enabling organizations to experience non-stop, lightning-fast, waste-free SANs despite continuous changes in the makeup of their storage pools. DataCore uses software to transform imperfect storage hardware devices into optimally performing “virtual disks” that are high capacity, high performance, scalable, ageless and are always accessible. This unique emulation overcomes differences, limitations and flaws inherent in all real devices, whether they are basic disk drives or top-of-the-line disk arrays.
