Dot Hill Systems has announced that its AssuredSAN 3000 series storage arrays are ‘DataCore Ready’ and provide full interoperability with the SANsymphony-V storage hypervisor from DataCore Software.
The combination of Dot Hill AssuredSAN storage and DataCore’s SANsymphony-V storage hypervisor can assist end users in simplifying storage management, boosting performance and greatly improving data availability. Certification under the DataCore Ready program provides end users with the confidence that Dot Hill AssuredSAN 3000 storage solutions have undergone verification testing to ensure joint solution compatibility.
“We have a great working relationship with Dot Hill who has established itself as a leading manufacturer of storage solutions,” stated Carlos M. Carreras, vice president of alliances and business development at DataCore Software. “This allows both our channel partners and end users to leverage a powerful, adaptable and scalable storage solution that will not only increase performance and functionality, but have a positive impact on their bottom line.”
SANsymphony-V provides centralised storage management under a single pane of control to simplify and optimise existing storage assets while delivering enterprise-class features. The DataCore storage hypervisor will enable Dot Hill’s AssuredSAN 3000 series with added performance acceleration through adaptive caching, space efficiency with thin provisioning and a multitude of high availability (HA) features including synchronous mirroring, and continuous data protection (CDP) for any point-in-time backup and recovery.
“SANsymphony-V software from DataCore complements the Dot Hill AssuredSAN 3000 series storage hardware to deliver an affordable solution boasting a wide range of features normally found only on high-end enterprise solutions,” said Warren Reid, EMEA director at Dot Hill senior director of marketing at Dot Hill. “Working in close collaboration with leading technology partners, such as DataCore, we can deliver more powerful storage solutions to the end user at a very compelling price.”
