JMR Builds With DataCore

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- JMR Construction Corp. has become a DataCore SANmelody customer courtesy of DataCore partner Integral Networks. VMware and DataCore serve as a way forward for the DataCore partner and customer alike. The combination provides a cost effective alternative that made it practical for JMR to save by not having to invest in additional, physical servers.

JMR was overwhelmed by a glut of servers and it was at that point that we said ‘enough is enough’,” said Bryan Badger, senior systems engineer, Integral Networks. “If they went the physical server route that would just mean adding to the problems and not really addressing their long term needs. They did not have the space, nor the power and cooling for more systems and after looking into it, we knew that would be far too expensive to implement. However, when we scoped out what was needed to go virtual with two VMware ESX hosts and DataCore SANmelody, we saw a solution that could deliver services, grow with their needs and deliver immediate value – in terms of lower upfront costs; in terms of what we was saved in operational costs and maintenance fees; as well as what would be gained by staff productivity from the ease-of-use and overall manageability.”
