Economize IT Spend During Budget Constraints

How DataCore helps VARs reduce data storage costs for customers and maximize return on exiting investments

Budget cuts are something IT teams deal with quite often. It could be because of a slowdown in the company’s revenue – perhaps a bad quarter – or a failed IT project that led to tighter budgets and scrutiny on new investments, or even a global recession affecting the overall market.

In the present scenario of the coronavirus pandemic, there is a potential recession that economists are predicting. In the wake of this, organizations have already started cutting down their budgets. In speaking to customers, we found that many IT infrastructure expansion projects or hardware refresh initiatives are being stalled. IT teams are prioritizing their spend between what’s absolutely essential (such remote connectivity/troubleshooting tools, security tools, VPN/gateways, etc. when most employees are working from home) and what can be put on the backburner for now. When data continues to grow and storage demand continues to surge, it’s a challenge for IT teams to manage capacity on a budget.

IT teams must look for smarter and cost-effective ways to optimize existing storage resources to support business demand without having to break the bank with new storage hardware purchase – at least for the time being. And you, the DataCore value-added reseller (VAR), can help your customers achieve this storage optimization.

How DataCore Helps You Save on Data Storage Costs

DataCore brings to you software-defined storage (SDS) solutions that help optimize your customers’ current storage infrastructure to its fullest capacity before going forth with new storage hardware purchase and adding additional resources.

Centralize Storage Resource to Eliminate Islands of Unutilized Storage

DataCore SDS solutions allows you to centrally pool all storage resources into one logical control plane from where you can reclaim all unused capacity and assign LUNs to application workloads. This will help maximize utilization of current capacity to its fullest without having to throw hardware to increase capacity. Also, management of multi-vendor storage from a single console simplifies manual effort for the IT staff and lowers costs associated with time spent on storage management.

Leverage the Fastest Storage for Most Important Data and Move Inactive Data to Secondary Storage

DataCore enables you to automatically move your customer’s hot data to primary storage and avoid getting it used up for warm/cold (inactive) data. Built-in machine learning capabilities allow automatic tiering of data to appropriate storage device so that the primary storage only supports mission-critical workloads.

Especially in times of remote work – such as now during the COVID-19 pandemic – when there is more unstructured data generated from recorded meetings (audio/video), more content and documents shared on collaboration platforms and virtual desktop data, DataCore allows you to automatically move this data to lower-cost cloud storage. This can be an economical alternative to spending on more premium storage to store inactive data.

Break Away from Vendor Lock-in and Gain Ultimate Storage Flexibility

Don’t get locked in with a storage vendor and suffer supply chain deficit or pricing hurdles. DataCore gives you the flexibility to use any storage under the hood and scale out with complete vendor-independence. Choose storage type/devices/vendors of your choice and aggregate all resources into a single pool for effective capacity allocation and usage.
