Three Editions to Choose From
DataCore SANsymphony block-based software-defined storage (SDS) solution is available in three editions – EN, ST and LS – giving you the freedom of choice to buy the software based on specific functionality and scalability needs. All three editions are available in term and perpetual licensing options, empowering you with the flexibility to choose the type of licensing that meets your budgetary requirements.
Enterprise-class edition offers the highest performance, richest feature set and the most flexibility
Standard edition is ideal for midrange requirements
Large-scale secondary storage edition is tailored for backup, archive and less frequently accessed data where lower cost and higher capacity are favored over performance

Flexible Licensing Options: Terms or Perpetual License
DataCore SANsymphony software can be licensed for annual and multi-year terms as well as perpetually. All options include Premier Support and free product updates.
In addition to these two licensing options, there is also the availability of an integrated hyper-converged system consisting of a hardware appliance with multi-year term software license. Please refer to HCI-Flex Appliance for more information.
A key functionality differentiator between perpetual and term licensing options is the secure access to our cloud-based analytics platform, DataCore™ Insight Services (DIS), which is included with term licenses. DIS delivers predictive monitoring, analytics and issue resolution, actionable intelligence, and proactive optimizations all through a single pane of glass.

Pay as You Grow
- Flexibility to choose between term (low CAPEX, pay as you go) and perpetual (buy once, own forever) licensing
- Scale capacity as needed
- Price per TB goes down as consumption grows
- Volume discounts on total capacity in use apply
- Governmental and educational organizations are eligible for additional discounts
Lower Pricing with Higher Capacity
The starting price of SANsymphony EN for a one-year term license is $519/TB.
As you expand to 250 TB of capacity, the price drops to $282/TB.
As you can see, the price per TB goes down as capacity consumption increases, making SANsymphony more economical for your organization as you scale.
*MSRP for the software does not include the cost of the underlying on-premises storage.
Granular Capacity Increments
The entry point and capacity expansion increment for EN and ST nodes may be as little as 1 TB, making them ideal for remote or edge requirements where compact, highly available solutions are necessary. LS deployments, well suited for large, secondary storage requirements come in steps of 50TBs or more per node.
Please consult a DataCore-authorized partner in your vicinity for pricing on the overall solution based on your storage capacity requirements.
Flexible Deployment Options
Each of the three SANsymphony editions – EN, ST and LS – may be configured with existing or new servers and storage to:
- Pool and virtualize popular storage arrays from any of the major manufacturers
- Create purpose-built storage servers (converged or server SAN)
- Hyper-converge storage across a cluster of servers (HCI)
- Create combinations of the above
Nodes licensed for different editions cooperate in a centrally managed pool to address diverse infrastructure-wide requirements.
