Storage Foundation customers may realize 400 percent performance gains over traditional SANs
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – Dec. 9, 2013 — /BackupReview.info/ — Symantec (NASDAQ: SYMC) today announced a new version of its Storage Foundation software, enabling data centers to leverage Solid State Drives (SSDs) in ways that could allow customers to access mission critical data and applications 400 percent faster than traditional Storage Area Networks (SANs). It is also the only offering to provide these benefits regardless of which storage hardware components are in place. Customers as a result are free to choose any storage infrastructure provider, and businesses can make critical decisions faster.
The growth of mission-critical data and applications, supporting real-time decision-making, is driving SSD adoption to increase performance within the data center. Adoption however has lacked the central management intelligence that customers need to manage their storage efficiently and effectively. Symantec’s offering solves this problem while allowing customers to combine SSDs with existing Direct Attached Storage (DAS) and SANs without compromising availability.
New feature highlights
Storage Foundation 6.1 functionalities and benefits include:
Partner and analyst quotes: Intel, NetApp, Mellanox, IDC
“Symantec and NetApp are long term partners with a history of delivering innovative solutions to solve customers’ most pressing data management challenges. The combined strengths of NetApp storage and the new Storage Foundation 6.1 software helps our mutual customers ease the adoption of new storage technologies such as flash while improving efficiency, performance and simplified management of business critical applications like Oracle, SAP and Microsoft Exchange.” Joel Reich, senior vice president and general manager, NetApp
“The exponential growth of data is challenging datacenter architects supporting real-time business analytics. Adopting advanced distributed data processing technology enables enterprises to cope with this data growth and gain a competitive advantage by making critical business decisions in real time. The combination of Solid State Drives, Mellanox’s FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand interconnect and Symantec Storage Foundation 6.1 eliminates IO bottlenecks and enables enterprises to achieve their business objectives over the most reliable data center infrastructure.” Kevin Deierling, vice president of marketing, Mellanox Technologies
“Symantec’s latest offering is designed to help customers leverage the next generation of storage. In today’s information-centric world, businesses want both increased performance and cost savings – and it doesn’t make fiscal sense to rip and replace existing storage to deploy new technologies like flash. However, with Storage Foundation 6.1, customers can ease into the adoption of new technologies, while mixing and matching high-end solutions with traditional hardware, without sacrificing existing service levels.” Ashish Nadkarni, research director, Storage Systems, IDC
