The Irish League of Credit Unions uses DataCore SANsymphony-V storage virtualisation software

ILCU achieves an optimised virtual environment with Disaster Recovery, Highly Performing Applications at 60% cost reduction to alternative storage environments.

The Irish League of Credit Unions (ILCU) has adopted DataCore’s™ SANsymphony-V storage hypervisor solution. The ILCU represents 484 financial institutions across Ireland, with combined assets of €13.6 Billion and membership of over 3 Million in credit unions...
Malcolm Moir, Infrastructure Services Manager at ILCU’s Dublin HQ:- “Our very ethos is about providing equitable, reliable, shared & stable assets to our user base.  We knew that there had to be a better way to service them with a highly available environment that also offered Disaster Recovery.”
“We started this project with the main aim of decreasing costs, modernising our environment and achieving reliable Disaster Recovery. Undoubtedly, DataCore’s SANsymphony-V is the cornerstone to this achievement. We are proud of the service we can now offer the business.” He summarises.

As DataCore’s SANsymphony-V solution has been running for 12 months, we will leave the final comments on reliability to Malcolm “The stability of the DataCore storage hypervisor has impressed me. It’s simply an install and forget product that we rarely need to change. And at ILCU, it’s proven. We did have a failover, but it was totally oblivious to the business, with no interruption of services and a simple notification by email, storage is failed over automatically. That’s massively reassuring.”
