DataCore Stand L22 Answers Key Visitor Question: “Hyperconverged Software or Hyperconverged Hardware: Which is Right for You?”
Stand L22, IP Expo Europe, London ExCeL, 9 October, 2019. DataCore is using the UK’s main IT trade show to display a hyperconverged software and hardware zone, featuring the first worldwide showing of one of the new DataCore™ HCI-Flex appliance family. The 1U HCI Flex on show combines the simplicity of hyperconverged systems with the flexibility of software-defined storage at a very competitive price-performance point and will be of great interest to visitors in ROBO environments, or those considering hybrid public clouds. Equally visitors in those environments where an existing server farm is in place and can be readily utilized will be shown the benefits of a fully software based hyperconverged Virtual SAN layer.
Given hyperconvergence is one of the shows leading themes, DataCore are confident that viewing the latest hyperconverged technology and considering all hyperconverged options will be a major visitor pull. With the HCI Flex on show, visitors will see a 1U configuration with either VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V pre-installed alongside the robust data services of DataCore software-defined storage including smart caching, thin provisioning, dynamic-auto-tiering, and Parallel I/O acceleration, which delivers up to 500% storage performance improvements. They will also be shown how the intuitive smart deployment wizard gets the HCI-Flex appliance up and running in a matter of minutes and how it can pool and manage internal storage AND external storage systems as well, regardless of vendor or underlying technology. Visitors who have remote office/branch office (ROBO), plans for hybrid cloud models and edge computing environments will appreciate the easy management and lack of cost and floorspace (high availability is achievable with just two nodes through synchronous mirroring).
Also on show, DataCore’s new cloud-based predictive analytics engine, DataCore™ Insight Services (DIS), that provides actionable insights from a 360-degree view of infrastructure-wide storage. Here visitors will see how the SaaS control plane draws on telemetry and the collective learnings from thousands of customers globally for early problem detection, best practice recommendations and capacity planning. The combination of machine learning and artificial intelligence detects current or foreseeable anomalies in the data storage infrastructure, while the built-in recommendation engine directs designated individuals to the most appropriate corrective actions.
IP Expo now forms part of Digital Transformation Expo coming live from the ExCeL Conference Centre London, themselves 12 year customers of DataCore’s software-defined storage solution to ring-fence business continuity at the UK’s leading conference venue.
“This will be a showcase to the power of unifying storage technologies,” notes Brett Denly, Regional Director, DataCore UK & Ireland who leads the local team on stand. “Hyperconvergence takes centre stand with flex and simplicity in a box and with predictive analytics from machine learning giving a glimpse into predicted behaviours of environments. We are looking forward to meeting as many prospects, partners and customers as we can to show these great developments.”
