DataCore: DataCore yields the highest availability, fastest performance, and fullest utilization from your storage assets, making it an essential element of your VMware configurations. DataCore's storage virtualization solutions deliver a more practical HA solution to VMware shared storage requirements. They abstract your storage into idealized, virtual disks akin to virtual machines. The software pools and mirrors disk blocks across available devices, despite differences in make and model.
