DataCore Software serves the needs of many universities and other institutes of higher learning. University of Illinois, Texas Tech, Open Cyber University, Scuola Normale Superiore College of Pisa, The University of Manchester, University of Norfolk, Vancouver Schools, Texas A&M, Utah's Education Network, Stanford, and Oxford University, among others, have deployed DataCore solutions.

DataCore is a leader in virtualization. Virtualization is the ability to leverage new hardware and respond rapidly to change - thereby improving greatly the overall utilization of existing IT systems and enabling these enterprises to avoid the scenario of having very expensive hardware standing around in computer centers that doesn't get utilized enough. Virtualized systems can be precisely tailored to any institution's requirements and since they are hardware independent, it adds a new level of flexibility.

"Universities operate under tough budgetary conditions and yet they face many of the same issues that result when data growth is rampant and systems are multiplying. DataCore can help them gain new productivity levels by optimizing storage resources and making it easier for staffs to support many systems over a network. In other words, we are going the extra mile to provide real storage management solutions that will fit within University budgets," said George Teixeira, president and CEO, DataCore Software. "We want to make it as easy and as risk-free as possible for institutions of higher learning to take control of their growing data storage and at the same time help them achieve a higher standard for preparedness in terms of data protection, uptime and disaster recovery."
