DataCore Software Upgrades SANsymphony-V

The storage virtualization developer’s upgrade adds automated storage tiering as well as open APIs, VSS, and PowerShell support.

The storage virtualization developer’s upgrade adds automated storage tiering as well as open APIs, VSS, and PowerShell support.

Storage virtualization developer DataCore Software has enhanced its popular SANsymphony-V solution.

DataCore Software Upgrades SANsymphony-VSANsymphony-V 8.1 is a portable, centrally-managed software suite designed to enhance the combined value of multiple disk storage systems, including the many purpose-built storage appliances and SSD devices in the channel. The Datacore storage hypervisor supplements the individual capabilities of specialized equipment with a broad range of device-independent, integrated services.

DataCore’s storage hypervisor intelligently oversees the allocation of capacity from DAS, SAN-connected arrays and board-level SSD.

DataCore’s storage hypervisor also enables storage equipment to be easily upgraded, expanded, and replaced non-disruptively, while associated data migrations take place silently in the background, without any awkward scheduling of downtime.

The latest iteration of SANsymphony-V adds:

  • Automated storage tiering to maximize the price/performance value of available storage assets.
  • Open APIs, VSS, and PowerShell support for greater management integration.
  • Expanded Microsoft Failover Cluster support for greater scalability.

Features of this new version include:

  • Adaptive caching for performance acceleration.
  • Thin provisioning for space efficiency.
  • Synchronous mirroring for high-availability.
  • Asynchronous replication for remote sites and disaster recovery. †
  • Low-impact online snapshots for high-speed disk to disk backup.
  • Pass-through disks for non-disruptive migrations.
  • Continuous data protection for backup and recovery.
  • Unified Storage for managing file shares (NAS) and SANs.

DataCore Software boasts that these new features “elevate SANsymphony-V to the role of super hypervisor.” The company further states the product better enables SMBs to “fully leverage their existing storage assets, including direct-attached storage, storage area networks, and solid state disks, and negotiate the best deals among competing storage manufacturers without concern for long-standing hardware vendor lock-ins.”

In a press release submitted to Channel Pro-SMB, DataCore CEO George Teixeira says the intelligence of a storage hypervisor “provides a strategic advantage to managing the many as one.” He adds, “SANsymphony-V enables users to take control of how their storage infrastructure evolves versus being subject to the dictates of point-in-time decisions.”

SANsymphony-V Release 8.1 is available now. Software licenses for a fully redundant, high-availability configuration start under $10,000 and include annual 24×7 technical support.
