DataCore SANsymphony SDS Review

Improved performance and security in our small infrastructure


What is our primary use case?

I use DataCore SANsymphony for the redundancy with two nodes. It's a good solution with a good price for a small infrastructure like us.

How has it helped my organization?

It has improved performance, security, RTO, RPO, and timeout. It has improved my organization with the prevention of a breakdown.

What is most valuable?

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.

What needs improvement?

I would like for it to improve into a more ergonomic management console and a translation into the French language. It should have some process for a shutdown of a VM properly in case of a problem.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is good for the moment.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I feel that the scalability of this solution is very good.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

This is our first solution in the world of the hyperconvergence.

What was our ROI?

Our ROI is from good security.

Storage costs are better with DataCore SANsymphony.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing and licensing are better with DataCore.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I compared it with vSAN.

What other advice do I have?

Good support, very reactive.
