Summary

DataCore SANsymphony is one of the most flexible solutions in the software-defined storage (SDS) market, enabling users to build modern storage infrastructures that combine software-defined storage functionality with storage virtualization and hyperconvergence. This results in a very smooth migration path from traditional infrastructures, based on physical appliances and familiar data storage approaches, to a new paradigm built on flexibility and agility.

On top of the core block storage services provided in its SANsymphony products, DataCore recently released vFiLo to add file and object storage capabilities to its portfolio. VFiLo enables users to consolidate additional applications and workloads on its platform, and to further simplify storage infrastructure and its management.

The DataCore platform has been adopted by cloud providers and enterprises of all sizes over the years, both at the core and at the edge. SANsymphony combines superior flexibility and support for a diverse array of use cases with outstanding ease of use. The solution is mature and provides a very broad feature set.

DataCore boasts a global partner network that provides both products and professional services, while its sales model supports perpetual licenses and subscription options typical of competitors in the sector.

DataCore excels at providing tools to build balanced storage infrastructures that can serve multiple workloads and scale in different dimensions, while keeping complexity and cost at bay.
