DataCore Software Announces "Pay-as-You-Serve" Cloud Service Provider Program to Slash Capital Costs of Providing Hosted IT Services

DataCore Software, the storage hypervisor leader and premier provider of storage virtualization software, today announced that providers of hosted IT services may now rent DataCore's SANsymphony-V storage hypervisor through the company's Cloud Service Provider Program. Under the program, Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) pay for the use of the software monthly based on the amount of storage they serve versus having to purchase it outright. This allows participating providers to reduce capital expenditure and better align costs to revenue.

DataCore's storage hypervisor software manages and protects hosted IT environments, providing a high performance, highly scalable, automatically tiered storage infrastructure upon which providers can confidently build and offer their hosted IT services.

"Pay-as-You-Serve" Business Model Aligns Storage Costs with Revenue Generating Services

The DataCore Cloud Service Provider Program goes a step further in the direction of "on demand" infrastructure with its "Pay-as-You-Serve" proposition to hosted IT service providers-they pay for the software as they use it, based upon the storage they serve to their subscribers.

"In order to offer the most competitive pricing for their services, CSPs and other hosting companies seek to lower capital expenditures and keep expenses and their timing aligned to revenue-producing activities," said Carlos M. Carreras, vice president of alliances and business development, DataCore Software. "The DataCore storage hypervisor ‘software advantage' gives us the unique ability to offer the kind of service provider program that other leading software companies, like VMware, have developed, but apply it to the storage-side of the infrastructure. Ideally tailored for the flexibility, efficiency and predictable expenses they seek."

DataCore's Storage Hypervisor: Greater ‘Buying Power', Productivity and Operating Expense Savings

New cutting edge technologies will also be of interest to CSPs. These innovations designed to satisfy large scale, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) requirements crucial to building robust cloud storage infrastructures are packaged in the company's newest product, SANsymphony-V R9.0, aptly described as "The Storage Hypervisor for the Cloud."

The storage hypervisor's powerful storage management capabilities and interchangeable hardware design empowers hosters with great cost-savings flexibility, new levels of automation for increased resource productivity and a storage infrastructure that easily incorporates the industry's latest innovations.

"The new DataCore CSP pricing model reduces our upfront costs - thereby enhancing our margins," comments Philippe Merckel, CEO, MERCKEL SAS. "DataCore understands that as data centers move to the cloud in the form of virtual, private data centers, cloud platforms need the storage virtualization functionality that DataCore brings to the table with its storage hypervisor. The key, however, for CSPs lies in making the adoption of this technology cost-effective. That is what this Cloud Service Provider Program does. It makes it far easier for us to standardize on DataCore for storage virtualization because we pay as we go rather than paying for everything upfront. It fundamentally suits our own business model whereby our own clients lease our cloud platform."
