Bridge the gap between your need to achieve real-time business and to leverage current and future IT assets to maximize resource utilization. 


DESCRIPTION: Discover the benefits of deploying x86 Servers with a Software-defined platform that will massively boost your ROI from existing storage inside your datacenter. Modernize your infrastructure with this software-led approach and reap the long-term benefits Without compromising your IT budgets.

DataCore is the authority on real-time data. The company pioneered software-defined storage and is now bringing its technology to hyperconverged and workload optimization. DataCore empowers IT organizations to achieve always-available, high-performance and highly efficient data. Its patented technology eliminates storage bottlenecks with adaptive parallel I/O optimization, enables zero-downtime synchronous mirroring, and provides a true hardware-agnostic architecture — resulting in flexibility, resource efficiencies, and cost savings.

Transform your IT infrastructure with the enterprise-scale hyper-converged infrastructure solution from NetApp. Run multiple applications with guaranteed performance to confidently deploy NetApp HCI across your entire data center.

NetApp® HCI is an enterprise-scale hyper-converged infrastructure solution that delivers compute and storage resources in an agile, scalable, easy to manage two-rack unit, four-node building block. It is designed around the foundation of NetApp SolidFire® all-flash storage to deliver guaranteed application performance with mature integrated replication, efficiency, data protection, and high availability services. You can confidently deploy NetApp HCI from the edge to the core of your data center. In addition, simple centralized management through a VMware vCenter Plug-in gives full control of your entire infrastructure through an intuitive user interface.


Come out to hear why NetApp HCI is the embodiment of an API-driven, scale-out, multi-workload platform for the next-generation data center:


  • NetApp HCI has been named an Evolutionary Disruptor by Gartner
  • Third-party analysis by the Evaluator Group shows that NetApp HCI is the lowest cost all HCI on the market today
  • Make automation and orchestration first-class citizens in the data center to reduce operating costs
  • Run multiple applications with guaranteed performance
  • Scale compute and storage independently and automatically without overprovisioning the entire stack
  • Integrate with the NetApp Data Fabric to access data at any time, with any cloud and reduce data silos
  • Drive true consolidation of workloads by pushing better system utilization while reducing go-forward capex and OPEX costs
