What are the benefits of storage virtualization

How storage virtualization can minimize total cost of ownership

Hardware and software have always been closely linked for many years. The concept of software-defined storage systems has made the dependency on specific hardware obsolete. That's a good thing, because storage virtualization can reduce costs.

Software-defined storage (SDS) on the rise

In recent years, the development of software-defined storage systems (SDS) has become more and more important - in every industry and for every company size. The main advantage of SDS technology lies in the virtualization of storage systems. The connection between hardware and software is canceled and companies can use their storage solutions regardless of hardware. Software-defined storage is becoming the standard, while dedicated appliances are slowly disappearing from the scene. One of the greatest benefits of storage virtualization is the cost savings - but how exactly do companies and organizations get financial benefits from using virtual storage solutions?

Reduce total cost of ownership thanks to storage virtualization

IT departments are often equipped with tight budgets and still have to increase both the performance and capacities of the storage systems. Since new hardware is expensive, purchasing it is not an option for expanding the IT infrastructure.

With the so-called OPEX model from DataCore, one of the leading storage software providers, existing resources can be used optimally and as required.

On the basis of the current storage usage trends, it can also be forecast when capacities will become scarce. With DataCore's software solutions, IT departments can independently and flexibly choose hardware, technologies and platforms in order to continue using the existing IT investments. This greatly reduces the total cost of ownership.

DataCore customers always remain hardware-independent, regardless of whether they use hyper-converged infrastructures or SDS systems. DataCore enables the central administration of technologies and infrastructures from all providers. The focus is particularly on the longer use of the existing IT resources. Technologies that work with x86 hardware - whether AFAs or NVMe - can be easily integrated and work flawlessly in conjunction with DataCore's solutions.

The hospital in Hanover, Pennsylvania, for example, was looking for a scalable storage solution to manage the huge amounts of data easily and efficiently. With DataCore, Hanover Hospital has reduced the time it takes for routine storage tasks. At the same time, the entire storage costs could be reduced significantly.
