Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
The most useful feature of SANsymphony is that it's able to manage any brand of block storage.
Storage is always available.
The most valuable feature of DataCore SANsymphony SDS is its high availability. This solution also exhibits good performance and has high stability.
The solution's most valuable feature is its versatility, with there being support for all new hardware technologies and platforms, disc mirroring and very effective auto tiering.
SANsymphony is flexible, with many potential options for implementation. SANsymphony's can be used with VMware, Hyper-V, or even with a hypervisor agnostic approach. It can also be used for strictly physical non-virtualized solutions.
The documentation repository is really useful and kept updated.
Continuous data protection (CDP), can be used to "protect" again ransomware by recording all write on disk in a log. You can recover your data with incredible time granularity.
The interface is user-friendly.
It provides high performance and business-critical storage.
Supporting of Automated-Storage-Tiering (AST) is a good feature that saves money.
DataCore's ability to seamlessly move virtual volume data between storage pools as well as their synchronous mirroring has made maintenance and disaster recovery planning achievable.
DataCore has helped provide flexible, highly available, high-performance storage that otherwise would have been outside our price range.
I'd have to say that the biggest improvement gained by using SANsymphony has to be the performance of the product.
The most valuable feature for us is that we can adjust the size of the storage very easily, without stopping production.
The features I have found most valuable are the active-active, or so-called grid technology, and the integration into our VMware-vCenter.
Good security with this solution.
The ability to pool the storage to leverage thin-provisioning is a huge saving in space and costs.
During the maintenance periods, on any part of the storage or VMware migration, we have had no downtime.
