VMworld 2010: DataCore Showcases Why Its Storage Virtualization and Stretch High-Availability Software Eliminates Business Outages that Jeopardize Cloud Computing

DataCore’s software-based storage virtualization and high-availability approach is key to cloud-based and virtualized IT environments

SAN FRANCISCO – August 31, 2010 – At VMworld 2010 being held in San
Francisco at the Moscone Center this week, DataCore is showcasing how
fundamental software-based storage virtualization is to cloud
computing.

The Mirazon Group’s Chief Technical Architect Barry Martin states,
“Cloud computing platforms demand unprecedented uptime due to server
and storage consolidation. DataCore’s high-availability approach
provides zero downtime. This is a tremendous advantage.”

Storage Virtualization and Stretch HA Software for Non-stop Clouds

DataCore is blazing a trail by developing storage virtualization
software that is a game-changer in terms of how resellers, solution
providers as well as companies considering virtualization deployments
manage and deploy virtualization projects and Clouds. The game-changer
is that by deploying DataCore in a stretch high-availability (HA)
configuration, DataCore delivers fault-tolerance that virtually
eliminates storage-related outages that jeopardize business continuity
and plague virtualization and consolidation initiatives.

“The DataCore Software stretch high-availability solution delivers
seamless, enterprise-class business continuity, data resiliency, and
high performance at an affordable price tag,” states Aaron Schneider,
principal and co-founder, Helixstorm, Inc. “Your applications, virtual
servers and virtual desktops and VM migrations continue to run non-stop
despite back-end storage changes, failures or reconfigurations.
Bottom-line, you get a true high-availability, shared storage solution
that automatically protects your data and your virtual machines right
out-of-the box just by deploying the virtual storage software in two
locations.”

DataCore in the Cloud: Achieve the Highest Degree of Availability, Flexibility and Openness for Your Storage

Host.net knows intuitively that storage virtualization software is
priority one. “Any cloud computing platform, just like any
virtualization deployment, needs to have portable software as its
building blocks,” notes Jeffrey Slapp, vice president of virtualization
services, Host.net. “We chose DataCore in the core design of our
virtual private data center (vPDC) platform alongside VMware and Cisco
because it delivers the very best storage virtualization component.”

DataCore storage virtualization software is virtualizing the storage
aspect of an all-virtual private data center (vPDC) platform developed
by Host.net. Host.net delivers private cloud computing services for
companies ranging from SMEs to large enterprises, utilizing a true
software-based approach for the greatest flexibility. Check out the

Contain Costs, Avoid Risks, Boost Productivity and Extend the Life of IT Investments with DataCore Software

Even though server and desktop virtualization and consolidation have
garnered much of the virtualization press to date, now the real focus
of concern is turning from how to virtualize and consolidate servers
and desktops to how can we do more to mitigate the risk that results
from consolidation. The key concerns being, “How do I insulate my
business applications from storage related failures and disruptions
that can severely impact virtual machine images and data that are key
to running the business?” and “How good is my high-availability,
disaster recovery and shared storage solutions?”

DataCore addresses these concerns with proven software deployed in
thousands of customer sites around the world. DataCore’s software
virtualizes disks across pools of tiered storage devices enabling users
to provision, share, reconfigure, migrate, replicate, expand or upgrade
without slowdowns or downtime. Simply put, DataCore:

  • Complements your storage and makes it more reliable, faster and better.
  • Works across unlike & incompatible storage devices.
  • Eliminates
    storage-related disruptions, bottlenecks and funding roadblocks that
    jeopardize virtualization and cloud deployments.
