How much time and money you spend processing and storing data largely depends on the performance of your IT systems. Server hardware specifications hint at the potential, but system software truly governs the live experience. Generally, the software does a good job of distributing computational work, yet severely limits input and output (I/O) operations - reading and writing serially to disk. Consequently, far less work completes than the hardware is capable of. Over the years, companies have unknowingly come to accept this poor use of resources, buying many more servers, bigger machines and much more costly storage than required.
Get more work and faster response from fewer, lower cost systems
DataCore™ software puts the full power of commodity servers and storage hardware to work for you.
The payoff comes in two forms:
a) For virtualized workloads with a typical mix of I/O patterns, 2 multi-core servers can do the work of 10 equally equipped machines.
b ) For enterprise-class, latency-sensitive applications such as OLTP databases, a server costing 1/5th the price outperforms the more expensive system from the same supplier.
Either way, you benefit from outstanding savings in capital equipment, smaller real estate and substantially lower power and cooling. Not to mention ecstatic users and a smaller, simpler environment to care for.
