FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. and GLEN BURNIE, Md., Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DataCore Software, the premier provider of storage virtualization software, and Vision Technologies, Inc. (Vision), a leading IT Services company and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business, announced today that Vision has qualified for the DataCore™ Premier Partner Program. With the addition of the DataCore SANsymphony™-V storage virtualization platform to its portfolio, Vision can now provide its clients with a powerful software architecture that maximizes return on storage investments and meets the rigorous business-critical application performance requirements of today's demanding commercial and government environments.
"The Vision difference is a level of excellence in IT service and craftsmanship that's driven by our people and guided by client's needs throughout the lifecycle," said the President and CEO of Vision Technologies, John Shetrone. "We look at immediate needs, but, flexibility down-the-road is equally important. Clients have to be able to maximize storage investments and ensure performance of critical business applications. Still, being able to take advantage of future developments is vital, so avoiding vendor hardware lock-in is also vital. DataCore's SANsymphony-V uniquely delivers these benefits and the Premier Partner Program expands our market potential."
Based in Glen Burnie, Md., with additional offices in Mooresville, N.C. and Chantilly, Va., Vision is a systems integrator with national and global reach that helps reshape the way commercial clients and federal agencies use technology to improve the quality of services they deliver. The company provides clients with innovative solutions, carefully crafted to deliver integrated wired and wireless systems from the data center to the desktop for security, access control, and surveillance, audio-visual and teleconferencing systems. Five business units support clients in Network Infrastructure, Converged Technologies, Global Services, Technical Services and Federal Systems.
DataCore's SANsymphony-V is an agnostic storage virtualization platform that enables companies to avoid hardware lock-in and purchase only the equipment that best suits their business goals. DataCore's software empowers customers' existing storage and significantly improves business critical application performance. Advanced features, such as automated storage tiering, allow IT administrators to get the maximum return on investment from expensive hardware purchases, such as flash and solid state disks (SSDs). This assures that only applications and databases that require powerful computing are ever stored on them, while less frequently used, non-critical data is sent to less costly and lower performing equipment or even cloud-based options.
"Vision is known for advocating for their clients, truly acting as a resource that is going to deliver the greatest IT value," said the Director of Partners Sales for DataCore Software, Devin Schiffman. "These are the types of companies we demand as Premier Partners. Not only do they fully understand the benefits of storage virtualization and software-defined solutions, they realize there are right and wrong ways to approaching deployments. Furthermore, this approach ensures that Vision will remain on the forefront of technology development in such critical areas, and that's a commitment our organizations share."
DataCore Software's Premier Partner Program enables IT consultants and solution providers to answer growing market demand for more cost-effective storage, such as the implementation of flash and SSDs into tiered storage networks alongside conventional disk systems to significantly improve application and virtualized workload performance, as well as making it easy to do migrations to the benefits of software-defined storage.
