DataCore Virtual SAN introduces the next evolution in Software-defined Storage (SDS) by creating high-performance and highly-available shared storage pools using the disks and flash storage in your servers. It addresses the requirements for fast and reliable access to storage across a cluster of servers at remote sites as well as in high-performance applications.Download this white paper to learn about:

applications, especially within virtualized environments, require high
performance from storage to keep up with the rate of data acquisition
and unpredictable demands of enterprise workloads. In a world that
requires near instant response times and increasingly faster access to
data, the needs of business-critical tier 1 enterprise applications,
such as databases including SQL, Oracle and SAP, have been largely
The major bottleneck holding back the industry is I/O performance.
This is because current systems still rely on device -level
optimizations tied to specific disk and flash technologies since they
don’t have software optimizations that can fully harness the latest
advances in more powerful server system technologies such as multicore
architectures. Therefore, they have not been able to keep up with the
pace of Moore’s Law.
The storage market is noisy. On the surface, storage providers tout all flash, more models and real-time analytics. But under the covers lies a dirty little secret—their operating systems (the foundation of storage) are all the same… built on LUNs and volumes.
But now a new category of storage has emerged—with operating systems built on virtual machines, and specifically attuned to virtualization cloud. It’s called VM-aware storage (VAS), and if you’ve got a large virtual footprint, it’s something you need to explore further. Fortunately this guide offers you (the Visionary) a closer look at VAS and the chance to see storage differently.

a large flash purchase for their arrays.
