Compelling Storage Virtualization Software
Decades of growth of applications, storage and complexity have delivered unprecedented economic, operational and flexibility challenges to the world of IT. To meet these demands today's IT department is turning to virtualization, not just of systems and applications, but in every facet of IT. When broadly and carefully deployed, virtualization has the capability to ensure that management focus is where it should be: on applications and organizational results rather than on hardware choices. This ESG Lab Validation documents the results of hands-on testing of DataCore SANsymphony-V R8 Storage Virtualization Software. ESG Lab evaluated SANsymphony-V with an eye on assessing the value of infrastructure-wide storage virtualization including centralized management, ease of use, capacity efficiency, data mobility, and performance. The enhanced high availability and disaster recovery capabilities of synchronous mirroring within campuses or metropolitan areas and long distance asynchronous remote replication are also presented.
