Why vCloud Tech?Datacore Software-Defined Storage Offers Ultimate Flexibility, Scalability, And Cost Efficiency In An HCI Platform

DataCore Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI), a combination of server and storage, is an intelligent software platform that creates flexible building blocks to replace legacy infrastructure, consisting of separate storage networks, servers, and arrays. It combines commodity server hardware with locally attached storage devices (spinning disc or flash) and is powered via a distributed software layer. It eliminates common problems associated with legacy infrastructure. It combines locally attached storage devices (spinning disc or flash) with commodity data center hardware. To eliminate legacy infrastructure’s everyday problems, HCI uses a distributed software layer.

A distributed platform on commodity servers is an alternative to expensive and complex legacy infrastructure. It allows enterprises quickly scale their workloads and adjust their costs as required. A node is a server that includes x86 processors, SSDs, and HDDs. Each node is home to software that distributes all operations across the cluster. It optimizes storage performance, and all nodes have a flash. All-flash nodes can deliver maximum I/O throughput and minimal latency for enterprise applications.

 

How does Hyperconverged Infrastructure work?

HCI solutions include a distributed storage and compute platform that allows you efficiently manage HCI resources from one interface. It eliminates the need for separate management solutions for Hyper-Convergence Storage, storage networks, virtualization, and storage.

 

  • Storage virtualization.

 

  • Virtualization calculations.

 

  • Networking virtualization.

 

  • Automation and advanced technology are some of the benefits.

 

  • Virtualization software abstracts resources and allocates them dynamically to apps in VMs and containers.
  • Maximum Resource: Reduce deployment time, reduce operating costs, and streamline deployment with a compact footprint.

 

  • Centralized Management: Manage compute, network, and storage resources from a single interface.

 

  • Flexible Infrastructure: Support modern workloads with a scalable architecture on industry-standard hardware.

 

  • Single Support Software Stack: Combine planning, design, procurement, training, management, upgrades, and support with a single Red Hat subscription.

 

  • Improved Edge Performance: Brings higher performance to the network edge where skilled resources and space are limited.

 

  • Open Source: Leveraging the upstream community ensures enterprise-ready features without being tied to proprietary products.

HCI transforms IT, operational models, by allowing for simple and unified resource management. It provides three key benefits.

 

  • Improved IT Efficiency: A converged IT team can manage and monitor resources and replace manual processes. HCI dynamically allocates and pools resources to increase capacity, performance, and protection.
  • Lower Storage Costs: Scalable architecture reduces CAPEX. It requires no expensive, purpose-built networking and standard x86 servers. HCI scales easily without disruption or overprovisioning, which reduces infrastructure costs.

 

  • More Remarkable Ability To Scale: HCI allows you to respond quickly to changing business requirements. You can set up hardware in hours and spin up workloads within minutes. You can accelerate business-critical applications such as relational databases with DataCore HCI Software. It scales to meet your specific application requirements and future-proof the IT environment.

 

  • High Availability At A Low Cost: SANsymphony allows you to achieve high availability with only two HCI nodes. SANsymphony mirrors data simultaneously to a secondary HCI Node in real-time, ensuring high availability storage for mission-critical applications.

 

  • Well-Suited For Mixed Hypervisor Environments: SANsymphony can be used to provision storage to different hypervisors or migrate from one hypervisor to another.

 

  • Ultimate Flexibility: DataCore allows you to make the most of your equipment, unlike hyper-converged vendors who only want you to buy from them. You have the freedom to choose hardware from other suppliers when you need it. It puts you in control of your next purchase. You can also leverage separate storage or service hyper-converged storage for non-HCI applications if you need to transition to a more converged deployment model. It will not disrupt your business operations.
  • Flexible Architecture Adapts To Future Needs:

Reduce IT costs by scaling your storage on demand, independent of computing and networking. You can easily access capacity on both cloud storage and external SANs from one console. Non-HCI servers can be configured to allow access to storage via HCI nodes. SANsymphony will enable you to easily integrate new technology into an HCI cluster without needing data migrations or forklift upgrades. You can also migrate non-disruptively between traditional SAN, hybrid, or hyper-converged environments, as your business requires, with minimal impact on your applications.

 

  • Great For Mixed Hypervisor Environments:

Icon Whether you want to use different hypervisors for different workloads or migrate from one hypervisor to another, SANsymphony works with VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V and works the same way as virtual computing resources. You can provision hypervisor storage.

 

  • No Vendor Lock-In Or Deployment Restrictions:

Data Core lets you get the most out of your existing devices. Unlike the usual hyper-converged vendors who want you to buy from the device. You also have complete freedom to choose hardware from other providers when expanding or replacing. It puts you in control when negotiating your next purchase. Finally, if you need to move to a converged deployment model, use different storage, or deploy hyper-converged storage for non-HCI applications, you can do so seamlessly without disrupting your business operations.
