DataCore Software Joins VMware as a Technology Software Alliance Partner

Membership Serves as a Value-add for Customers and a New Day for Systems Administrators

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- In the spirit of working together to expand deployments of virtual infrastructure technology, DataCore Software, a leader in storage virtualization solutions, today announced that it has joined the VMware Technology Software Alliance program. This is a logical next step since many DataCore customers are benefiting from the combination of VMware virtual machines and DataCore virtual storage, and the announcement further signifies the new reality in virtualization: virtual servers and virtual storage make sense.

"The products work hand-in-hand to accelerate the time it takes to allocate and assign systems and storage," said Kosmas Schutz, Director of Information Systems, Munich's Schwabing Hospital. "With a small staff, it makes it possible to manage a lot of user storage and hundreds of servers in our dynamic environment. Together, VMware ESX software and DataCore virtual storage reduce workloads on administrators, ease server provisioning and automate serving disk capacity to users and applications."

By adding DataCore to the virtual infrastructure mix on the storage side, VMware software in combination with DataCore solutions give administrators what they need to streamline the way they work.

Administrators can scale and rescale the processor capacity, memory and automate disk space as well as interfaces for the applications, as needed. The time it takes to deliver a customized server and storage and get it live is reduced often by a factor of 10.

"By working with VMware, DataCore Software can optimize and support the interoperability of our SANsymphony and SANmelody software with VMware software to enhance performance and functionality and assure the best customer experience," said George Teixeira, President & CEO, DataCore Software. "As a Technology Software Alliance partner, DataCore gains additional access to software, technology support and access to VMware software technical consultation and training."

According to TPI Technologies CTO Jeremy Evans, "DataCore does for storage what VMware does to servers -- the combination really makes sense. DataCore's virtualization storage solution received top marks when we tested it in ease-of-use when integrated with VMware software, the leading server virtualization product. The combination extends the value proposition beyond server utilization to include the storage investment."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Over the course of two days, in addition to insightful conversations and presentations delving into the industry's current pressing challenges, there was considerable buzz about digital transformation and how it is enabling global enterprises to accelerate business growth. Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand. The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
