DataCore Software, the leading provider of storage virtualisation and management software, today announced that they have partnered with Datashare Solutions to provide thin provisioning, disaster recovery and high availability solutions for its UK customers. According to the agreement, Datashare Solutions, a leading ITC and professional services provider, will resell DataCore’s storage virtualisation and storage management solutions SANsymphony™ and SANmelody™ within its data protection portfolio to complement Citrix and VMware virtualisation capabilities.
“We are using DataCore’s SANmelody and SANsymphony solutions as part of our portfolio of backup and restore services, and recommending them individually as the storage server personality within enterprise virtualisation installations”, commented John Eady, Sales and Marketing Director, Datashare Solutions. “We selected DataCore solutions after extensive evaluation, because they eliminate the barrier of high SAN costs whilst bringing the storage server functionality to VMware installations. Our decision has been endorsed by the signing of Payne Hicks Beach, who are using DataCore’s SANmelody solution for high availability and a failsafe SAN virtualisation.”
Datashare Solution’s customer base is especially strong in the legal sector, whose data intensive requirements rely on Datashare Solutions to ensure compliance and regulation adherence. To support this and the financial sector, Datashare Solutions have offices in Greater London and within the Square Mile. DataCore Software has seen and continues to generate significant wins in the legal vertical, primarily due to the intense growing storage demands and need for reliable recovery and restore.
“It’s a natural fit – DataCore has become a strong force in provision to the UK legal sector, where compliance, retention and retrieval of data and correspondence are of paramount importance.” noted Nick Broadbent, UK MD & EMEA Operations, DataCore Software. “Through strong provision of professional services and their VMware, Microsoft, Citrix and Cerebus portfolio, Datashare Solutions have been successful in developing and retaining a strong client base in the legal sector and in other mid-sized business organisations.”
