DataCore Software today announced that it is a Platinum Sponsor at Microsoft’s TechEd Europe 2012 show (June 26-29 at the Amsterdam RAI Centre) and is welcoming attendees to visit booth P2 to see and learn about the newest developments of its storage hypervisor and how it can optimise storage infrastructures for Microsoft platforms. The premier provider of storage virtualisation software will present a “Private Cloud Design and Management” session aimed at helping organisations understand and overcome the difficult storage related challenges needed to build, deploy and manage successful private clouds (June 26, Session 01, 12:00-13:15, Room D204). Separately, a second session has been dedicated to present the new SANsymphony-V storage hypervisor developments and innovations (June 27, Lunch Session Wednesday, 13:30-14:15, Hall 3B).
Microsoft’s selection of DataCore to present these sessions marks the continuation of a long relationship between the companies, highlighted by the success of thousands of joint customers and partners around the world using the combination of Microsoft and DataCore to build highly available and flexible virtual infrastructures.
“Private Cloud Design and Management” will detail how to transform existing IT operations into a robust, private cloud, utilizing existing storage assets and without putting a massive strain on IT departments or budgets. The session will provide recommendations for achieving performance, availability and flexibility through a virtualised storage infrastructure. Emphasis will be placed on leveraging and optimising Hyper-V, clustered shared volumes and Microsoft System Center. The session will include a live demonstration and a discussion of various real-world customer scenarios. In the second session, DataCore is introducing a new generation of its storage hypervisor software extending its reach into Large Scale Data Centers, Private Cloud Projects and Cloud Service Providers.
“The acceptance for private cloud and storage virtualisation technologies in the Microsoft space is rapidly growing and Microsoft professionals need to get a real handle on proven approaches,” said Alexander Best, director of technical business development at DataCore Software. “Improperly handling storage can bring such projects to a grinding halt. DataCore’s storage hypervisor, and our long history in virtualisation, helps Microsoft experts and partners to maximise the benefits of private cloud in the easiest, most cost-effective way possible.”
The sessions will be open for all attendees of Microsoft TechEd Europe 2012. In addition, attendees are invited to visit DataCore at booth P2 for further information.
Alexander Best and Christian Marczinke, both Microsoft Certified Technology Specialists and DataCore Certified Master Engineers, will be available for technical press briefings during the show. CEO George Teixeira will be available for strategic briefings on Thursday, June 28.
