Datacore Updates SANsymphony

Datacore Software Corp. has added new functionality to its SANsymphony storage virtualization product to address the needs of administrators. The new features were added at the request of customers to simplify management.

Datacore says that it plans to extend SANsymphony from a storage virtualization product to a single point of management for managing SANs.

One new feature in SANsymphony is simplified switch adminstration. Users can configure zoning through the SANsymphony GUI and the software can detect ports automatically.

“Boot-and-go” offers administrators faster recovery after disasters by managing points-of-failure on the SAN.

SANsymphony can now also dynamically reassign hardware on the SAN for better performance. If an HBA has problems, the software can switch to another card.

Finally, SANsymphony has added features for managing caches, improving the time it takes for storage to move from the SAN to the server.
