DataCore Software, a leading virtualization infrastructure and storage management software supplier that has deployed thousands of virtual SANs around the world through its authorized and trained solution providers, today announced that Global Storage, a leading Australian supplier of data storage and security solutions, has worked with DataCore to develop a portfolio of offerings to meet growing customer demands for consolidation, virtualization and disaster recovery solutions.

Global Storage will bring to market both DataCore’s SANsymphony™ and SANmelody™ software. DataCore's products provide solutions that enable users to easily expand capacity, continuously protect and enhance access to data, and to centralize and automate storage administration for Windows, UNIX, Linux, MacOS, VMware, and NetWare systems. First known for large scale storage consolidation through the success of the SANsymphony™ open storage networking platform, DataCore has become a leading independent software vendor specializing in virtualization infrastructure, disaster recovery and storage management solutions. DataCore’s SANmelody™ disk server software is the first of its kind to provide Fibre Channel (FC) SAN users as well as iSCSI Ethernet based IP networking users with a complete range of advanced storage features, such as business continuance failover, remote disaster recovery, fast disk-to-disk backups, “boot” from SAN for blade servers, and automatic disk space provisioning – making it practical to build robust, scalable and affordable SANs using either FC and/ or standard IP networks.

Companies around the world are jumping on the virtualization train because the advantages in terms of the cost savings and flexibility are compelling. DataCore’s software offerings will become part of a complete package of virtual solutions sold by Global Storage. “Global Storage recognizes that there is a clear demand for new virtualization platforms and storage software that scales and allows IT services and resources to be deployed rapidly and as needed.” said David Duncan, Technical Director at Global Storage.

"Having solution provider partners worldwide who understand the value of flexible, virtual infrastructures and are highly skilled in working with customers to define, implement and service these solutions is strategic to our business,” said Scott Margol, Vice President of Corporate Development at DataCore. "Global Storage fits this profile and is well positioned in Australia in many sectors, including government, healthcare as well as corporate."
