DataCore SANsymphony is a product that I recommend in pre-sales, that I install and maintain for customers who need to maintain a high level of IT system available for their users. With RTO/RPO/RTA close to zero, it is one of the best data security solutions that I recommend to the majority of my company's client companies.

DataCore SanSymphony enables redundancy for business continuity and to secure data. We use it to ensure the first backup with the CDP and Snapshots functionalities. DataCore SanSymphony enables legacy, converged, and hyperconverged architectures with a single product and creates hybrid infrastructures that mix these architectures in order to cover all possible constraints. Because the product is reliable, we perform all demonstrations and training on our production environment for our customers and prospects.

Currently, we use hyper-converged SANsymphony in our corporate location for the whole organization. The business problem it addresses is redundancy for business continuation and for easily carving up data space needs. We do not use a san as our data needs do not require it; however, should we get to that point it will be very easy to incorporate it.

I have assisted various organizations to implement this product as well am currently using DataCore's SANsympnony product in my home lab and place of employment. We have 20 DataCore storage server across the enterprise, at 9 different locations with over 2 PBs of storage.

This solution allows the use of off-the-shelf hardware and charges by the TB of storage. So we can throw in our own enterprise-class hardware (including SSDs) and not pay any extra based on the type of storage we use. This is the same model used with server virtualization. Keep the hardware separate from software. This is true "storage virtualization" at its finest. The software over the years has matured to be very robust and allows you to build a very high performing storage platform. It has all the features of any high-end SAN such as fiber channel, iSCSI, thin provisioning, storage tiering, snapshots, continuous data protection/recovery synchronous and asynchronous mirroring, performance reporting/graphing, true HA design.

Want to choose your hardware purchases on value and not be locked in by a single provider? Go with SANsymphony. Chose your hardware vendor and if you don't like them, move on; it's that flexible. The big vendors want you to just purchase the solution they offer. Storage changes quickly. You have the flexibility to purchase SSDs from one vendor and spinning disks from another, thanks to SANsymphony.

Awesome Virtual SAN

DataCore is one of the best Virtual SANs I tried. The ability to create a tier from almost anything helps with leveraging [our] investment. You can have a very fast tier like SSD, go thru 15k SAS, 10k SAS, 7k SATA, 5K SATA, ... DataCore will make sure your blocks are on the right disks.

This is an easy way to use direct-attached storage into a very powerful SAN. Running on Windows, you don't have to learn much to be able to configure and use it.

iSCSI attached to not only the virtual hosts, but also FileServer and backups. Sometimes, I attach iSCSI disk directly inside a VM that needs more storage or IOPS.

DataCore is so easy!
