DataCore Announces Free Virtual SAN Software with General Availability of SANsymphony-V10 Software Defined Storage

DataCore, a leader in software-defined storage, today announced free non-production Virtual SAN software with the general availability of its newest SANsymphony™-V10 software, the company’s comprehensive 10th generation storage services platform. To help users evaluate the power of the new Virtual SAN capabilities and further educate themselves on the benefits of software-defined storage, DataCore is providing free access to a non-production use Virtual SAN software license. The free SANsymphony-V10 Virtual SAN software is now available for download at: www.datacore.com/Free-Virtual-SAN.

The new Virtual SAN software is ideal for personal self-education and training, home labs and for evaluation purposes. It is intended primarily for technical specialists, virtualization consultants, certified storage experts, instructors and architects evaluating technologies to manage and optimize existing and new storage infrastructures.

Enterprise-class Virtual SAN Performance, Availability and Scaling

The DataCore™ SANsymphony-V10 virtual SAN software can scale performance to more than 50 Million IOPS and to 32 Petabytes of capacity across a cluster of 32 servers, making it one of the most powerful and scalable systems in the marketplace.

DataCore’s new Virtual SAN is a software-only solution that automates and simplifies storage management and provisioning while delivering enterprise-class functionality, automated recovery and significantly faster performance. It is easy to set up and runs on new or existing x86 servers where it creates a shared storage pool out of the internal Flash and disk storage resources available to that server. This means the DataCore™ Virtual SAN can be cost-effectively deployed as an overlay, without the need to make major investments in new hardware or complex SAN gear.

DataCore virtual SANs are a cost-effective solution for clustered servers, VDI desktop deployments, remote disaster recovery and multi-site virtual server projects, as well as demanding database and business application workloads running on server platforms.

Grow Beyond Virtual SANs to Enterprise-Wide Software Defined Storage

DataCore SANsymphony-V10 provides a comprehensive set of storage features and a growth path that expands the scope of the virtual SAN to non-disruptively incorporate external storage as part of an overall architecture. DataCore can function on the server-side as a virtual SAN, run and manage physical SANs, and operate and federate across both.

“We enable clients to get started and test drive a high performance, scale-up and scale-out virtual SAN at an appealing price, that takes full advantage of inexpensive servers and their internal drives,” said Paul Murphy, vice president of worldwide marketing at DataCore. “By downloading our enterprise proven Virtual SAN software, you’ll be able to experience the DataCore advantage.”
