DataCore SANsymphony-V – Product Brief

Last updated December 30th, 2018 for annual review and updates. 4-page review of Software Defined Storage software product DataCore SANsymphony-V. Covers highlights, potential, usage, and commentary on strengths/weaknesses.

DataCore SANsymphony-V is a storage virtualization solution that pools multiple sources of storage connected via fibre channel or iSCSI (or DAS) and presents the combined block capacity to LAN or SAN-based clients. SANSymphony can run natively on a Windows server, in the Hyper-V kernel or as a Windows VM in a Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware vSphere, Citrix XenServer or KVM hypervisor.

SANsymphony can scale from 2 to 64 server nodes managed from a single point to provide redundancy and increase capacity of the storage pool well into the PB range. Parallel IO architecture leverages multi-core CPUs to maximize performance delivered by each node. SANsymphony-V has the flexibility to use solid state devices residing in the server as tiered storage or a level of cache, providing tailored performance acceleration for most workloads.

DataCore federates all storage resources with an extensive set of centralized features, including local and remote replication, synchronous mirroring, snapshots, cloning, deduplication, thin provisioning, compression, encryption, WAN optimization, non- disruptive scaling and automatic load balancing. SANsymphony-V also supports VMware’s VVOLs making any virtualized storage system appear as a VASA 2.0 provider.
