State Group Adopts Datacore

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. and TORONTO -- DataCore Software, the leading provider of storage virtualization SAN software, today announced that The State Group has selected, deployed and seen results with its SANmelody storage virtualization software solution. DataCore partner Interware Systems was responsible for the sale and the deployment at The State Group, a large construction company and multi-trade contractor with revenues of $250 million annually. The State Group needed to implement a solution to resolve their data back-up challenges and therefore decided to purchase SANmelody. In so doing, The State Group was introduced to DataCores storage virtualization capabilities. It was then a natural progression, after realizing the productivity and flexibility benefits of virtualizing their storage, to virtualize their servers as well. Currently, SANmelody supports the company’s existing systems, its remote, Citrix application servers as well as their new deployment of VMware servers. SANmelody did more than enable back-ups for The State Group; it became the first step to going down the path of Total Enterprise Virtualization.

“I am happy to say that Total Enterprise Virtualization is the way of the future and The State Group is ahead of the game,” stated Ralph Marascio, IT Manager, The State Group. “DataCore, with the help of Interware Systems, allowed us to get there and we would recommend this to any business.”
