Reading, Berkshire, United Kingdom, 2008/06/11 - DataCore storage virtualisation and management software, wins "Storage Product of the Year" and "Green Project of the Year" at 2008 UK Storage Awards.
SANmelody wins "Storage Product of the Year" and SANsymphony wins "Green Project of the Year" at Honda Racing.
DataCore's SANmelody software last Thursday received the UK Storage Award’s ‘Storage Product of the Year” at the Tower Hotel in London. Voted for by readers of Storage Magazine, the award recognises the ability of SANmelody to reduce the complexity normally associated with traditional Storage Area Network (SAN) storage, providing cost savings, increased productivity and optimal utilisation. In addition, DataCore Software also scooped the Green Project of the Year through their SANsymphony installation at Honda Racing.
This is the second year running that the Storage Awards have recognised the achievements of the DataCore solutions, winning “SAN Solution of the Year” in 2007.
Nick Broadbent, Managing Director, DataCore Software noted “We are genuinely thrilled to have picked up the Storage Product of the Year award in such a strong category. This Award endorses that SANmelody continues to meet and exceed customer expectations.”
DataCore’s SANmelody software converts standard Intel/AMD servers, blades or virtual machines (VMs) into fully capable SAN storage servers that virtualise disks & serve them over existing networks to application servers. They are simple to operate, take only minutes to install, and let you cost-effectively optimise, manage and protect data storage and disk space.
DataCore set a breakthrough price point with its entry level SANmelody solution, which takes the enterprise capabilities of thin-provisioning and makes it affordable to all levels of business. DataCore’s entry level SAN solutions including thin-provisioning, now start at prices under £600 MSRP.
Honda’s top reasons for embracing DataCore’s SANsymphony software were overall performance to speed up workloads and backups, the flexibility of the solution and its inherent ability to use existing disks - thereby protecting the value of the team's existing Fibre Channel & SCSI investment and its ability to make storage "simple to drive" - saving much time and effort both in terms of adding new disks and managing changing capacity needs.
