WorldHostingDays 2013: The DataCore Storage-Hypervisor in the “Pay as You Serve” Model

DataCore Makes the Case for “Software-defined Storage” at WorldHostingDays 2013

RUST, Germany – March 19, 2013 – DataCore Software, the storage hypervisor leader and premier provider of storage virtualization software, will present the new enhancements to SANsymphony™-V R9, which is optimized for private clouds, cloud service providers (CSPs) and big data centers at the WorldHostingDays (March 19 – 21, at Europa Park in Rust). DataCore offers service providers the storage hypervisor software in a “pay as you serve” model – with monthly billing according to exact storage capapcity consumption, so “hosters” and CSPs can link their costs directly to their sales.

The SANsymphony-V R9 storage hypervisor offers high performance, scalable provisioning of highly available storage capacities – regardless of producer or model of the storage hardware. Enterprise storage functionalities for the management of capacity, performance and data security are available across devices and sites through the software layer and therefore can be used for storage optimization by cloud or hosting providers. The storage hypervisor can be ordered under a “pay as you serve” licensing model via the aggregation partners ADN and Insight.

A few months after the introduction of the new licensing model, which is similar to the licensing model for virtualization products from VMware, Microsoft and Citrix, more than 20 hosters across Europe already use SANsymphony-V R9 in the CSP pricing model. They use the advantages of software defined storage with full functionality without the investment risk for their infrastructure. DataCore will be presenting SANsymphony-V R9 at the WorldHostingDays as an updated solution with higher performance, scalability and advanced management features for storage automation, monitoring, forecasting and client-specific billing.

“In order to offer the most competitive pricing for their services, cloud services providers and other hosting companies seek to lower capital expenditures and keep expenses and their timing aligned to revenue producing activities. The DataCore storage hypervisor ‘software advantage’ allows DataCore to bring to storage infrastructure the level of service provider programs like other leading software companies do, e.g. VMware, to provide customers with the flexibility, efficiency and expense predictability they require and demand, ” said Christian Hagen, vice president and managing director EMEA.

Mr. Hagen’s lecture “The Importance of a Software-defined Storage Platform for Hosted Services: Because the Hardware Underneath Will Inevitably Change” will take place during the event on March 21st, at 1715 hrs in the section hosting.SESSIONS.

The WorldHostingDays 2012 had more than 4200 visitors from 88 countries and over 100 exhibitors. More information at
