DataCore Software: flexible, intelligent, and powerful software-defined storage solutions
With DataCore software-defined storage you can pool, command and control storage from competing manufacturers to achieve business continuity and application responsiveness at a lower cost and with greater flexibility than single-sourced hardware or cloud alternatives alone. Our storage virtualization technology includes a rich set of data center services to automate data placement, data protection, data migration, and load balancing across your hybrid storage infrastructure now and into the futu

IT organizations large and small face competitive and economic pressures to improve structured and unstructured data access while reducing the cost to store it. Software-defined storage (SDS) solutions take those challenges head-on by segregating the data services from the hardware, which is a clear departure from once- popular, closely-coupled architectures.

However, many products disguised as SDS solutions remain tightly-bound to the hardware. They are unable to keep up with technology advances and must be entirely replaced in a few years or less. Others stipulate an impractical cloud- only commitment clearly out of reach. For more than two decades, we have seen a fair share of these solutions come and go, leaving their customers scrambling. You may have experienced it first-hand, or know colleagues who have.

In contrast, DataCore customers non-disruptively transition between technology waves, year after year. They fully leverage their past investments and proven practices as they inject clever new innovations into their storage infrastructure. Such unprecedented continuity spanning diverse equipment, manufacturers and access methods sets them apart. As does the short and long-term economic advantage they pump back into the organization, fueling agility and dexterity.
Whether you seek to make better use of disparate assets already in place, simply expand your capacity or modernize your environment, DataCore software-defined storage solutions can help.
