Software-Defined Storage Features

DataCore has spent over 20 years developing a comprehensive set of storage services that are hardware agnostic and provide many powerful functions infrastructure-wide and across multiple vendors server and storage offerings. No other vendor can offer this functionality in a universally compatible format. Our storage services can be found in our SANsymphony™ & DataCore Hyperconverged Virtual SAN products.

And remember, DataCore Parallel I/O technology is included.

Performance

High Speed Caching

Accelerates disk I/O and business-critical application performance by empowering existing storage assets

Auto-Tiering

Makes intelligent and automatic usage optimizations based on cost and performance across different types of storage

Random Write Accelerator

Significantly increases performance for workloads characterized by many random writes, such as frequently updated databases, ERP & OLTP systems

Quality of Service Controls

Ensures high-priority workloads meet SLAs with predictable I/O performance by regulating resources consumed by lower priority requests

Availability

Sync Mirroring

Zero downtime, zero touch high availability by continuously mirroring active/active copies between physically-separate locations accessible to local/metro clusters as shared disks

Asynchronous Remote Replication

Fast, simple, remote-site disaster recovery and migration; Maintains distant copies up-to-date without impacting local performance

Continuous Data Protection & Recovery

Businesses can roll back to a previous point-in-time prior to a disaster, virus attack or other disruptive event without doing an explicit backup

Snapshots / Backups

Captures point-in-time images quickly across storage devices; Efficiently clone system images, speed-up recovery and enable off-line analysis

Efficiency

Storage Pooling

Consolidates like or unlike disks – enabling cost efficient tiering of resources by price/performance and capacity

Thin Provisioning

Increases storage utilization and enables cost savings by allocating just enough space just-in-time

Data Migration

Transparently moves and migrates data; Allows non-stop business operations during data center relocations, VM moves, system refreshes

Deduplication / Compression

Reduces space needed to store multiple copies of the same data

Management

Cloud Integration

Access Cloud storage from different vendors; Extends disk pool to external clouds; Gateway supports auto-tiering to cloud storage

Unified Storage (NAS/SAN)

Supports fast, high-availability NAS for file sharing [NFS/SMB (CIFS)]

VMware Virtual Volume (VVols)

Simplify storage management in VMware environments

Centralized Management

Greater productivity and administrative efficiency; Infrastructure-wide control and monitoring of pooled storage resources from one console

Analysis & Reporting

Offers real-time and historical analysis, ‘heat maps’ to identify I/O bottlenecks; Reporting for capacity planning, tuning and asset tracking

Container Orchestration

Leverage Kubernetes PersistentVolume API for orchestrating deployment, operations, and scaling of containerized applications (e.g., Docker and its microservices), allowing storage to be integrated into Kubernetes for containers and their applications to easily consume.
