DataCore's ability to seamlessly move virtual volume data between storage pools as well as their synchronous mirroring has made maintenance and disaster recovery planning achievable. DataCore's auto-tiering feature also allows us to use our SSD arrays efficiently. View full review »

The most valuable feature is auto-tiering, which allows for storage pools containing different speed storage systems and the data automatically moved to the most appropriate pool. View full review »

SANsymphony is a very versatile product and its vendor's agnostic nature allows us to pick and choose our hardware platform. Its redundancy allows us to perform maintenance 'on the fly' and protects our data from all manners of failure. View full review »

We have gained in scalability. The most valuable feature for us is that we can adjust the size of the storage very easily, without stopping production. The product is easy to administrate. View full review »

The features I have found most valuable are the active-active, or so-called grid technology, and the integration into our VMware vCenter. Our vCenter is now much easier to manage. View full review »

Redundancy and improved performance in terms of storage with auto-tiering are the most valuable features. It needs just two nodes for the operating system and licensing. View full review »

Mirrored vDisk, and creating a third node with asynchronous replication to get the data out of the datacenter. The new third node is great for an always-on experience. View full review »

Auto-tiering moves data to fast disk if needed. Works great. I don't have to think about the second set of data. View full review »

DataCore is very fast storage, applications start faster, and database access is improved. You can attach different storage pool and DataCore chooses where to store data (the most accessed data are on the faster storage automatically). Replication helps us to replicate virtual servers on different sites easily. View full review »

Parallel I/O, because there is no performance degrade nor cache hit when there is a 100% update and 70/30 read/write. There is no performance impact and latency is just 20 ms. View full review »

Technology Sales Director at a tech vendor with 51-200 employees
Incredible IOPS increase in storage: IOPS is required to fulfill a disk job faster. It is input/output per second. When you request a report on your SQL server, you need as much as IOPS you can. So many IT guys put their most important databases on SSD disks to reach the maximum IOPS within their storage. But SSD disks are still so expensive. On the other hand, if you have multiple VDI systems in different locations, you will experience boot storm every morning on your VM servers. You need IOPS to handle this problem and it leads you to buying more SSD. With FVP deployment, you create more IOPS than by adding SSD disks, with a lower rice. Additionally, you will be able to create tiering across your clusters. * Architect dashboard tool: You can see the overall performance of your FVP cluster. It even provides valuable info that VMware can't report to the user about the VM performance. You can add sources on your cluster or move VM systems among tiered clusters. Also, it is possible to see the amount of latency decrease and IOPS created without adding any SSDs to the storage. * Low initial cost * Works with different flash resources such as NV PCI cards, memory and SSD * Ease of use * Stability View full review »
