VMware Partner Exchange 2011: DataCore Showcases Newest Storage Virtualization Software; Targets Resellers Ready to Grow their Virtualization Practice and Rewards

DataCore Software, the industry’s premier provider of storage virtualization software, today announced that it will showcase its SANsymphony-V solution and its new partner readiness sales resource site ( at this week’s VMware Partner Exchange (VMPEX) 2011 conference. SANsymphony-V is DataCore’s next-generation storage virtualization software solution used by solution providers to eliminate storage-related barriers preventing customers from realizing the financial and operational goals of their virtualization initiatives.

VMPEX 2011 takes place at Disney’s Coronado Resort in Orlando, FL from Tuesday, February 8 until Thursday, February 10, 2011. DataCore will be exhibiting in booth #415.

Although VMware vSphere and View products have modernized large data centers, the transition to centralized, shared storage often proves too costly and cumbersome to implement, particularly for midsize and smaller organizations. Storage is also recognized as the biggest single source of downtime and slowdowns creating unexpected disruptions and I/O performance bottlenecks.

Two years in development, SANsymphony-V software enables datacenters to use existing equipment and conventional storage devices to achieve the robust and responsive shared storage environment necessary to support highly dynamic virtual IT environments. This contrasts sharply with the expensive “rip and replace” approaches being proposed to support desktop and server virtualization projects.

Extend Your Virtualization Practice, Accelerate Your Deal Flow and Earn More

To help VMware partners understand the value proposition and learn how they can accelerate their virtualization deals and extend their current practices, DataCore has created a one page sales resource site at: to make it easy to get started.

At the DataCore™ booth, value-added resellers and virtualization solution providers will learn how they can:

  • Overcome storage-related obstacles stalling vSphere deals
  • Take their virtualization practices to the 3rd Dimension
  • Empower their customers with the economic advantages of a software-based storage infrastructure

DataCore will also highlight several joint VMware and DataCore customer case studies who are realizing the true promise of software-based virtual infrastructures by:

  • Eliminating single points of failure for virtually 100% uptime
  • Gaining a 200% performance boost over their physical environments
  • Realizing greater than 60% cost savings

Storage virtualization software has been lauded as a “game changer” in a number of reports, including: InformationWeek’s ‘Storage Anonymous’ Cover Story. Link:

Attend VMPEX 2011 to discover how solution providers are reaping the benefits of combining VMware and software-based storage virtualization from DataCore.

Don’t miss the opportunity to meet and discuss your virtualization opportunities with the DataCore team and have a firsthand look at SANsymphony-V. Experts will also be available to expand on DataCore’s recently announced benchmark results and research paper titled, “Benchmarking a Scalable and Highly Available Architecture for Virtual Desktops,” which found a greater than ten-fold (10x) decrease in the per-Desktop costs of SAN-based, high-availability virtual desktop infrastructures.
