SAN Simulation provides flexible storage options

DataCore Software : 10 November, 2009  (New Product)
Microsoft Hyper-V users can make use of clustering features with the Virtual SAN appliance from DataCore
DataCore Software has announced that customers who don't have a SAN can now experience new features in Microsoft Hyper-V including live migration, dynamic load balancing and high-availability, simply by downloading DataCore's pre-configured Virtual SAN Appliance (VSA).

VSA makes it possible for two physical servers to share disks and that is something of great significance to Hyper-V users - since many Hyper-V capabilities require just that. The DataCore VSA comes in a standard VHD format for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V and Microsoft Hyper-V.

With DataCore's Virtual SAN Appliance Microsoft Hyper-V users can quickly:

* Utilize Microsoft Virtualisation environments with an iSCSI SAN created from their server's internal disks. No need for new hardware!
* Pool up to 1 Terabyte of disk space
* "Thin Provision" storage to the virtual machines. See how much capacity it saves!
* Make use of DataCore's "mega cache" capability - this speeds up performance for Exchange, SQL and others applications using surplus server memory to cache I/Os from the virtual SAN
* Use Snapshots for Instant Volume Cloning and Fast Disk-to-Disk Backups
* Create a SAN from their server's internal disks

"Why wait until you can roll in a SAN?" said Augie Gonzalez, Director of Product Marketing at DataCore Software. "When DataCore can virtualize the physical storage from internal or direct-attached disks to make it behave like a shared storage pool."
