DataCore SANsymphony SDS Pricing and License Cost

I would recommend sending administrators through DataCore's DCIE training/certification. DataCore has many options from hyper-converged solution, to even providing their own storage appliances if that's what you are looking for. View full review »

When we initially purchased DataCore, it was extremely cost-effective with a perpetual license. They have since moved to a subscription model, which may prove too expensive for us in the future. Make sure you are made aware of the annual subscription cost when purchasing. View full review »

In regards to Fibre Channel, buy a server that can handle the highest number of Quad Port HBA cards. Purchase as much memory for the server as you can afford. Anything you spec out, you will need to double if you want redundancy. View full review »

I had the vendor that sold me the software and hardware assist with setting up the systems. I also paid for three years of support at the same time when I purchased the software. Again, I found it affordable. View full review »

We have not calculated the ROI of the software. Only the benefits in redundancy and scalability were important for us. The licensing is very easy to understand/calculate since the new license model. You just have to license the storage and additional features. View full review »

The product was installed by our IT partner in one day, so the installation cost is OK. Pricing and licensing was also fair. View full review »

Pricing has improved but it is still expensive. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees. View full review »

Check what really needs fast storage and migrate it to DataCore and let low access data be on other storages. View full review »
