DataCore SANsymphony-V: The Software Advantage for Hosters

The SANsymphony-V storage hypervisor is optimized to deliver high performance, scalable provisioning and continuous availability and access to whatever storage resources the hosters choose to deploy – regardless of the model or vendor of the storage hardware. Powerful enterprise-wide storage management services optimize capacity, performance and data availability across all storage device types through a powerful software layer that allows cloud or hosting providers to take control of their storage costs and growth. Best of all, the DataCore storage hypervisor is available to qualified hosting companies via a “pay as you serve” licensing model offered by aggregation partners such as ADN and Insight located in Europe.

DataCore, since announcing the new pricing model at the start of the year has signed more than 20 hosters and CSPs across Europe who are now deploying SANsymphony-V to deliver cost-effective storage services. They have embraced the advantages of software defined storage to deliver full enterprise storage service functionality without having to take on a major investment risk.

 “In order to offer the most competitive pricing for their services, cloud services providers and hosting companies have to reduce their capital and operating expenditures and make sure they align these costs to their revenue producing activities. The DataCore storage hypervisor ‘software advantage’ allows hosters to achieve the purchasing power flexibility, cost-efficiency and expense predictability they require and demand,” said Christian Hagen, DataCore vice president and managing director of EMEA.
