FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- DataCore Software Corporation, the leading provider of hardware independent, storage virtualization software solutions, today announced that it has become a member of the Intel Enabled Server Acceleration Alliance (ESAA) enabling OEMs and solution builders the opportunity to create their own easy to build, high value, certified storage solution offerings with trusted Intel technology and DataCore software.
Through the Intel ESAA program, OEMs and solution builders can access recipes and other resources to take them step-by-step through the process of creating powerful offerings to establish or enhance their storage lines with solutions for storage virtualization and management, thin provisioning and business continuity/recovery, among others. These Intel and DataCore-based storage server solutions provide builders with new, lower price points from which they can deliver high-end functionality and performance to the rapidly growing iSCSI SAN and virtualization market segment.
Armed with recipes for DataCore certified, Intel® platform-based, enterprise-class, SMB-priced solutions, it is now practical for OEMs and solution builders to create offerings that compete in market segments and with solutions that were previously out of reach. Currently, two Powered by DataCore recipes are available through ESAA, both of which are implemented on the Intel® Server Chassis SR2500:
- Business Continuity/Recovery (HA) for 2 Disk Servers, with Storage Virtualization and Management and featuring DataCore thin provisioning (DataCore software U.S. list price: under $8000);
- and Virtual Infrastructure Foundation Disk Server for Storage Virtualization and Management and featuring DataCore thin provisioning (DataCore software U.S. list price: under $1000).
