DataCore Software Joins Microsoft Partner Solutions Center

DataCore Software, one of the industry’s premier providers of storage virtualization software, today announced that it has joined the Microsoft Partner Solutions Center (MPSC). For more than a decade, DataCore has developed innovative storage virtualization solutions designed specifically to work on Microsoft platforms. As an MPSC partner, DataCore now has increased access to Microsoft product teams, data centers, a state-of-the-art laboratory environment, technical support and training, and space directly on the Microsoft campus. This allows for the company to align better with Microsoft engineering, management, and sales teams to provide the best storage virtualization solution to partners and customers.

Located on the Microsoft campus in Redmond, the MPSC facility brings together world-class technology companies dedicated to the rapid development of secure, end-to-end business solutions for enterprise customers and partners.

This membership further strengthens DataCore’s relationship with Microsoft along with the company’s recent joining of the Microsoft System Center Alliance and the introduction of the SANsymphony-V Monitoring Pack for System Center Operations Manager 2008 R2, which provides constant visibility into the health, performance, and availability of virtualized storage resources from within System Center.

“We welcome DataCore to the MPSC and our partner ecosystem,” said David Hayes, Senior Director, Microsoft Partner Solutions Center. “As with all of our partners in the MPSC, DataCore brings a unique offering that helps address various infrastructure challenges our customers face today. With DataCore’s storage hypervisor, customers can now better monitor and manage their dynamic storage environments, while allowing for increased availability, speed, and utilization.”

DataCore’s SANsymphony™-V storage hypervisor enriches Microsoft’s virtualization solution by harnessing the native capabilities of Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server Hyper-V to address critical storage challenges. The DataCore™ SANsymphony-V storage hypervisor enhances the value of diverse storage resources by unifying advanced services, such as provisioning, auto-tiering, replication, and performance acceleration, through a common storage virtualization layer.

“Joining the MPSC was an important progression of our relationship with Microsoft,” stated Carlos Carreras, Vice President of Alliances & Business Development for DataCore Software. “DataCore has worked with Microsoft for 13 years, delivering advanced storage solutions. As customer demand for storage virtualization solutions on the Windows platform is growing quickly, it is a great opportunity for us to work on-site at Microsoft’s headquarters and to build on our combined strengths to address the storage needs of our customer and partner community.”
