Infrastructure VAD Exclusive Networks has signed a distribution agreement with DataCore Software, a pioneer of Software-Defined Storage. DataCore's Software-Defined Storage (SDS) solutions complement Exclusive Networks' Bigtec portfolio of solutions that enable companies to optimise the performance of their applications while maintaining economic control over their infrastructures.
For a successful digital transition
Today, companies must deal with two contradictory elements: the reduction of IT budgets and the explosion of data, which implies in particular strong needs in storage and data protection. DataCore's SDS solutions are based on these new requirements. At a time when the storage market is constantly changing and digital business transformation is a major challenge, it is essential for companies to equip themselves with storage solutions that meet their needs and to access their data in high availability, while guaranteeing a return on their investments.
One technology, several solutions
Exclusive Networks offers two DataCore SDS solutions:
SANsymphony: DataCore Software's historical product, this software solution allows storage to be virtualised by aggregating external bays and/or disks internal to the servers, in order to benefit from a single management interface and bring new functionalities globally (Stretch cluster, cache & auto-tiering, Parallel I/O, deduplication & compression, etc).
DataCore Hyperconverged Virtual SAN: This product aggregates the internal storage of hypervisors (VMware, Hyper-V, Xen, KVM) into a highly available and efficient shared storage to create a hyperconverged infrastructure.
With its solutions, DataCore Software helps companies to benefit from technological advances without increasing their costs, while maintaining the existing infrastructure. A pioneer in storage virtualisation technology for 20 years, the company brings flexibility and agility to its customers with heterogeneous storage solutions and increased performance. Regardless of the original manufacturer, DataCore solutions can be adapted to any type of infrastructure already implemented, while separating software from hardware. All tasks are then simplified: from maintenance to migration and renewal.
"We are committed to supporting our customers in their growth and digital transformation. That's why we've added DataCore solutions to our portfolio, which complement Exclusive Networks' BigTec offerings. Indeed, these solutions provide a dramatic improvement in performance, highly available data and maximum efficiency for companies. We are now proud to distribute DataCore, which currently has more than 10,000 customers and 30,000 deployments worldwide", said Franck Burtin, Country Manager Exclusive Networks France.
"This partnership allows us to increase our visibility and coverage of the French territory. The synergy of our teams in the field has the common objective of providing our partners with our skills in project detection, pre-sales, support and financing", adds Pierre Aguerreberry, Vice President Southern Europe at DataCore Software. "Exclusive Networks' decision to add our offer to its catalogue demonstrates the relevance of our Software-Defined Storage and Hyperconvergence solutions. We are convinced that Exclusive Networks' responsiveness and expertise will help us extend our leadership and we look forward to sharing this enthusiasm with our future customers."
