The Awards were voted for by a top panel of European journalists; consultants and industry leaders, specifically to recognise those products which have changed the way network managers work and make their jobs easier. Each product was judged on technical specification, functionality, features, innovation, performance, configuration, resilience, ease of use, cost effectiveness and market position.
SANsymphony 6.0 Enterprise Edition essentially changes the way Network Managers view their SAN, as it elevates SAN management control and automation from the limiting individual device level to management of higher level, logical units within the SAN infrastructure.
George Teixeira, DataCore CEO, noted, “The judges were looking to recognise solutions that provide true value and innovation to network managers – since it’s release in February, our SANsymphony 6.0 software has allowed users to greatly improve productivity and reduce costs. SANsymphony 6.0 doubles effective disk utilisation by pooling disk space from multiple devices and automatically allocating just enough capacity, just in time, to needy applications. Automating and consolidating storage control easily increases capacity managed per network administrator by tenfold and that was compelling for the judging panel.”
In terms of functionality and features that caught the judges’ eye, SANsymphony 6.0 is packed with innovation, including new SAN domains (intelligent virtual SANs within the physical SAN); ‘Span the SAN’ usability and productivity services; N+1 Grid scalability; high level business continuity; multi path SAN failover across FC, iSCSI (or both); advanced automation and thin provisioning; time addressable CDP volumes; and powerful non-disruptive data migration services.
It’s been an award-winning month for DataCore Software, pioneers in thin provisioning since 2001. In mid June, they collected the ‘SAN Solution of the Year’ at the UK’s Storage Awards with the implementation of their entry level, SANmelody solution at Moorfields Eye Hospital.
