DataCore Software is a software-defined storage (SDS) software company based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
DataCore’s main offering is SANsymphony-V, a storage virtualization platform that pools capacity across heterogeneous storage hardware. A graphical user interface (GUI) enables provisioning and management tasks including synchronous mirroring, caching, thin provisioning, RAID and snapshotting. The company also offers Hyper-Converged Virtual SAN software.
DataCore claims the title of global leader in software storage. In June 2015, DataCore was ranked first on the Storage Performance Council’s SPC-1™ Top Ten for Performance list. DataCore’s system, which achieved 5.1 million SPC-1 IOPS (input/output operations per second), was made up of two standard Lenovo servers using DataCore Parallel Server, connected to 12 external hosts through Fibre Channel. Each of the 12 hosts generated application workloads to drive required levels of I/O traffic.
According to the company’s mission statement, DataCore’s goal is to “Make it practical for organizations large and small to remove physical, geographical and device-specific restrictions of data storage equipment that slow down, interrupt or endanger their IT operations.”
DataCore was co-founded by George Teixeira and Ziya Aral in 1998. The company has over 10,000 clients with over 30,000 licenses deployed around the world.
