DataCore SANmelody™

Better utilization, lower overall hardware costs, fewer burdens on your staff and greater productivity all add up to generate cost savings and quick payback on ROI. Centralizing storage administration, consolidating storage resources and  concentrating backup and replication efforts on one server takes less effort and less time than having to bounce back and forth between several machines.

All the other servers get their data from the disk server using convenient and
inexpensive Ethernet connections. Thanks to a communications standard called iSCSI, the server applications access pooled Virtual Capacity disks as if it were a local internal drive. No application changes are required to take advantage of the centralized storage services.

Key Features

  • can be used in operating systems Windows, Linux, UNIX, NetWare and MacOS
  • host independent point-in-time snapshots
  • auto-provisioning of disk space (Virtual Capacity)
  • Data Replication and Disaster Recovery via IP WANs
  • intuitive administartive GUI, uses MMC – Microsoft Management Console
  • flexible
  • for File server, Mail server, Database server and/or Web server eingesetzt
