DataCore is our main Enterprise SAN solution. We serve all workloads among five different DataCore server groups. These workloads include all hypervisors, SQL and Oracle Databases, file shares, archive, and backups. DataCore helps us achieve disaster recovery by allowing us to mirror our data between two sites.

DataCore is the primary storage solution for all of our VMware hosts, installed on a Dell EMC RX740 server with a combination of spinning and NVMe storage. We have just moved to a 2-host, hyperconverged solution utilizing DataCore. All of our servers and services are running off the 2-node DataCore solution.

We use SANsymphony for all of our business-critical data. We run a dual host, VMware 6.7 host environment with a 25Gb/s network fabric connecting to mirrored SANsymphony nodes. We have two business systems running in this environment. One is running Red Hat Linux and Progress DB, whereas the other is running Windows and Microsoft SQL server.

The project was to replace an old SAN (from Dell EMC) with a new system that is more resilient and offers high availability.

Our primary use case is for a high-availability and redundant storage system with fast read and writes times with low latency.

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.

* A powerful, always-on system. We used DataCore for a few years. * The best solution to get build and an always-on strategy. It has zero downtime and is very fast and flexible.

I run two servers with DataCore doing what it does. I then run VMware on top of that for my Window servers. I currently have roughly 50 users that are constantly using the various servers.

With DataCore we manage the central storage for VMware virtualisation and Oracle databases. At the first location are two mirrored DataCore servers. At a second site, we use a DataCore server as an asynchronous replication target.

We use this solution for providing software-defined storage that is virtualized, in a true HA configuration. It provides SAN storage services to VMware vCenter hosts and VMware Horizon hosts, as well as some physical Windows and Linux servers. This platform allows us to leverage any storage that Windows can leverage, including other vendor SAN devices. This allows us to keep existing storage, mirror SANs from 2 different vendors and even allow very easy migration from one vendor to another. Most of our locations just use RAID attached storage (as it is the least expensive) with enterprise-class drives (both HDD and SSD).

We use the DataCore software to provide (virtual) storage hardware to our virtualisation environment (VMware ESX).

We are using DataCore to increase I/O, to more flexibly utilize storage and to provide a robust offsite replication solution.

The first use case was for our data center at the headquarters. We currently have two server rooms, connected by fibre, and the data is synchronized between both using DataCore.

* We use DataCore SANsymphony as our primary storage solution replicated on two hosts since October 2012. In July 2018, we dispatched them to the two server rooms. * Each DataCore node consists of a server and two storage bays connected in SAS. * We use this SAN to store our VMware datastore (300 virtual machines) for our 10 ESXi servers. * Each server is connected to storage via two fiber channel links 8Gbps.

SAN volumes for all system types. You can serve Linux and Windows systems alike, just add the multipath software.

We use it as part of the PCA. And also to recycle berries for which we deport their native intelligence on DataCore.

We use DataCore for VMware datastore. Each ESXi can access datastores stored on DataCore servers on different sites.

We can not afford periods for maintenance. So we need a solution with which we can provide appropriate high availability. 100% guaranteed with DataCore SANSymphony-V.

Installation of this hyper-converged infrastructure in our school this summer with two servers directly attached. It works perfectly!!
