FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., 10 Sept. 2007. DataCore Software in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., today announced support for implementing its storage virtualization and SAN management solutions as "virtual servers" that run on many different server virtualization platforms, such as those from VMware, Xensource, Microsoft and Virtual Iron.
The implications of creating a DataCore virtual SAN storage server on a virtual server is sometimes referred to as a "virtual machine," or "VM,"
"What DataCore has done here by putting DataCore virtual storage servers on virtual machines is a subtle way of further emphasizing that its hardware independent software solutions can go places and do things that hardware-based solutions can't because of their physicality and built-in limitations on the other devices and systems with which they will work," explains Arun Taneja, consulting analyst of the Taneja Group technology analyst firm in Hopkinton, Mass.
"This will not be lost on the server virtualization players, like VMware, Microsoft and Xensource, and is likely to spur opportunities for technical and commercial collaboration with DataCore," Taneja says.
DataCore storage virtualization software provides SAN and storage solutions for automated storage management and control, thin provisioning, disaster recovery, auto fail-over high availability and Continuous Data Protection (CDP).
