Partner Spotlight: A Radically Simple, High Availability Storage Virtualisation Solution Designed for VMware-Virtualised IT Environments:
 
“DataCore has helped us to get our foot in the door with a lot of SMB customers,” said Lak Gill of Interware Systems, a VMware and DataCore Gold partner in Canada. “With a DataCore foundation, we can easily upgrade these customers later on – enabling their infrastructures to grow as their companies grow.” The flexibility to grow with DataCore was a key consideration in the decision of Toronto-based The State Group to select a combined DataCore and VMware solution implemented by Interware Systems.
 
SANs are essential for virtual server environments. However, the high costs of most SANs put them beyond the reach of most customers. In particular, true-high availability between physically separate locations, even when located in the same building, can be prohibitively expensive. “DataCore allows us to put together solutions for our clients that do the job right within their budgets,” explained Tim Rettig, President, LAN Solutions, a DataCore reseller partner. “What is more, we feel strongly that our clients are getting robust, enterprise-level SANs at SMB prices.”
 
Continued Rettig, “With DataCore, the client can pick among hardware offerings from their favourite hardware vendors, and even mix and match them,” Rettig said. “When their requirements approach their systems’ limitations, we can non-disruptively upgrade them to faster, newer technology, possibly from a different supplier who then offers a better price/performance alternative. Because it offers an adaptable enterprise solution to our clients – in terms of capabilities, performance and reliability, all for a reasonable price, we feel that DataCore helps our firm to build lasting relationships with our clients.”
