Perfect match: DataCore and Ingram Micro to feed growing appetite for virtualization savings

Recent industry analysis finds 2009 may well be the “Year of Storage Virtualization.” DataCore say its storage and fail-safe high-availability solutions for virtual machines and desktops allow enterprises to “do more with less.” That’s why technology distributor Ingram Micro is tapping into DataCore’s full line in a newly reported agreement.<br/>

DataCore Software, a specialist in storage virtualization software, reports a distribution agreement with Ingram Micro , the world’s largest technology distributor, to deliver DataCore’s full line of software solutions throughout North and South America.

According to Jodi Honore, VP of vendor management for Ingram Micro, “DataCore is an enabling software product that will provide [Ingram] customers with a solution set to virtualize their disks and achieve greater utilization of their storage investment.”

DataCore solves the storage riddle begged by server and desktop virtualization: “How can I overcome the storage bottleneck, performance and high availability challenges that become critical when many servers or desktops are consolidated into but a few physical machines, without blowing my budget for this virtualization project?”

“The answer,” according to George Teixeira, president and CEO, DataCore Software, “is DataCore adapts your storage to these requirements, allowing you to do more with less, and leaving the physical storage purchasing decisions up to you, your timing and your budget. We are very pleased that Ingram Micro is teaming up with us to bring this message to an even larger audience.”

DataCore storage virtualization solutions run on any standard physical or virtual server, and are ideally suited for virtual machine and virtual desktop environments.
