DataCore's SANsymphony-V R9 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 SSD. 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.
"Since the launch of the DataCore Premier Partner Program coupled with the ever-rising demand for storage virtualization, we've enjoyed the ability to hand select our partners," said David Ochser, channel chief, Americas for DataCore Software. "We are pleased to work with an established and trusted integrator like mCOR who shares the same values of providing customers with powerful, but cost effective, solutions that allow them to achieve their business goals without breaking their budget. Today's demand for storage software creates an excellent opportunity for mCOR to leverage the capabilities of the SANsymphony-V storage virtualization platform and capitalize on today's software-defined market."
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. DataCore's recently enhanced, award-winning program builds on appealing characteristics which over the years have continually earned the company accolades in the reseller community. This includes channel-only sales that eliminate direct sales conflict, conscious regard for regional coverage by authorized partners in order to avoid over-distribution, and a customized on-boarding program to help rapidly close new business within the partner's current client population.
