Munich, November 18, 2015. At Fujitsu Forum 2015 (International Congress Center München, November 18/19, Stand B.34) DataCore, a leading provider of Software-defined Storage and hyper-converged Virtual SAN solutions, will showcase to forum attendees their second generation Storage Virtualization Appliance (SVA) and a new Hyper-Converged Appliance (HCA), both jointly developed and supported with Fujitsu and available for shipment by end of the year. In addition, DataCore will highlight new opportunities available for Fujitsu customers and partners that result from achieving certification of SANsymphony-V storage virtualization for SAP HANA on Fujitsu ETERNUS storage.
"Our partnership with DataCore continues to provide many benefits to our growing base of customers. Our joint solutions combine industry leading Fujitsu hardware platforms and DataCore software into Storage Virtualization Appliances (SVA) and Hyper-Converged Appliances (HCA) that help customers easily deploy and manage their enterprise class solutions to run their core business applications. With today's certification, DataCore officially supports SAP HANA on Fujitsu ETERNUS storage and adds its software-defined storage features, performance acceleration and high-availability capabilities to complement our SAP portfolio in an ideal way", says Jörg Brünig, Senior Director Channel, Germany, Fujitsu.
With the Storage Virtualization Appliance (SVA), Fujitsu and DataCore provide a series of tested turnkey appliances for SAN virtualization including "call home" service and efficient support from one source. In addition to the already established models, DataCore will showcase at the forum its second product generation SVA "vNext". It combines the newest Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX2560 M1 server generation with DataCore SANsymphony-V10 PSP4, making it even more powerful in use.
The partners are working together to meet the increasing demand for hyper-converged systems by providing a easy to deploy and use Hyper Converged Appliance (HCA). The Fujitsu DataCore HCA is a preconfigured "Ready to Run"-Appliance with integrated storage and the latest DataCore™ Virtual SAN software for data management, high availability and optimised performance. The HCA is designed for small and medium businesses and is a cost-effective solution for Hyper-V and VDI workloads, file and database services as well as iSCSI storage for external applications. Both new appliance solutions are expected to be available to the market by end of the year.
SAP HANA-certification for SANsymphony-V with Fujitsu ETERNUS storage
SAP has certified SANsymphony-V as the first software-based storage virtualization solution for SAP HANA®. DataCore provides the essential enterprise-class storage functionality needed to support the real-time applications made possible by the SAP HANA® platform. In SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) the DataCore software has been successfully tested with Fujitsu ETERNUS DX storage. With DataCore´s hardware independent Software-Defined Storage approach, SAP HANA users can now expand existing storage infrastructures with the Fujitsu / DataCore combination to achieve an optimal price / performance ratio with the latest hardware and software technology in their SAP HANA environment.
"The cooperation between DataCore and Fujitsu brings together leading technologies delivering tested, preconfigured and easy-to-integrate solutions with reliable support from a single source to our customers. The SAP HANA certification for SANsymphony-V now offers Fujitsu partners and resellers the opportunity to provide SAP HANA-users with effective storage solutions, regardless of which storage is being used today", says Stefan von Dreusche, Director Central Europe at DataCore.
DataCore Adaptive Parallel I/O Software and universal Virtual Volumes
At booth B.34, DataCore expands on the new DataCore™ Adaptive Parallel I/O Software. This technology allows for the first time an adaptive, parallel I/O processing in multi core processors. Especially needed in workload-intensive data processing in OLTP-, real-time analysis-, Business intelligence and Data Warehouse systems as well as SQL, SAP and Oracle databases, users will benefit from massive performance multipliers. With DataCore’s new Parallel I/O technology, virtual machines can be packed more densely on hyper-converged systems and thus savings can be realised at a previously unmatched level. Another enhancement to DataCore’s Software-defined Storage platform is the introduction of universal Virtual Volume (VVOL)-support. Vmware administrators can now deploy virtual drives via the vSphere interface from any storage hardware (disk subsystems, SSD arrays, DAS etc.) without bothering their storage administrator, even if they do not support Vmware’s VVOL.
