Software-defined storage solutions for core, edge, and cloud environments
IT organizations large and small face competitive and economic pressures to improve structured and unstructured data access while reducing the cost to store it. Software-defined storage (SDS) solutions take those challenges head-on by segregating the data services from the hardware, which is a clear departure from once-popular, closely-coupled architectures.
However, many products disguised as SDS solutions remain tightly bound to the hardware. As a result, these products are unable to keep up with technology advances and must be entirely replaced in a few years or less, while others stipulate an impractical cloud-only commitment clearly out of reach.
In contrast, DataCore customers are able to non-disruptively transition between technology waves, year after year. They fully leverage their past IT investments and proven practices as they inject clever new innovations into their storage infrastructure. Such unprecedented continuity spanning diverse equipment, manufacturers and access methods sets them apart.
Whether you seek to make better use of disparate assets already in place, expand your capacity, or modernize your environment, DataCore SDS can help.
Gain Ultimate Flexibility with The Power of Storage Virtualization
With DataCore storage virtualization software you can pool, command and control storage from competing manufacturers to achieve business continuity and application responsiveness at a lower cost and with greater flexibility than single-sourced hardware or cloud alternatives alone. Our software-defined storage technology includes a rich set of data center services to automate data placement, data protection, data migration, and load balancing across your hybrid storage infrastructure, now and into the future.
