DataCore Software and Hammer Announce Distribution Partnership
Hammer distributes the Storage Hypervisor SANsymphony(TM)-V in the Benelux

Brussels/Amsterdam (pts009/07.06.2013/09:55) - DataCore Software, the storage hypervisor leader and premier provider of storage virtualisation software, today announced that it has signed an agreement with storage distribution specialist, Hammer, to resell and provide professional services to support their SANsymphony-V and DataCore VDS software solution in Belgium and Netherlands. With the contract effective immediately, Hammer is now official DataCore distribution partner in UK, Belgium and the Netherlands.

Joerg Schweinsberg, Director of Distribution, DataCore Software EMEA, comments: "By signing the distribution contract with Hammer, we are pleased to have added a storage specialist distributor into the mix. SANsymphony-V enables Hammer to provide a software storage virtualisation solution within their portfolio and we are looking forward to actively working with their storage partner base who, we are certain, are going to be interested in the significant cost, performance and uptime enhancements that DataCore brings. With DataCore VDS Hammer will provide an easy and affordable virtual desktop solution designed for SMBs."

DataCore SANsymphony(TM)-V storage hypervisor enables IT consultants and solution providers to answer growing market demand for more cost-effective storage, into tiered storage networks alongside conventional disk systems, as well as taking advantage of rented capacity in the cloud and migrations to software-defined storage. SANsymphony(TM)-V is an agnostic storage virtualization platform that enables companies to avoid hardware lock-in and purchase only the equipment that best suits their business goals. Advanced features, such as automated-tiering, allows IT administrators to get the maximum return on investment from expensive hardware purchases.

DataCore VDS (Virtual Desktop Server) is designed to deploy and serve virtual desktops. It is a VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) application-specific use case that optimally applies DataCore's architectural advantages to make it practical to deploy persistent 'stateful' virtual desktops at a lower cost and higher performance than alternatives. DataCore VDS addresses unfulfilled SMB market demand for cost-effective solutions that want to adopt desktop virtualization for the same reasons large enterprises do - to reduce desktop management costs, improve productivity and increase business agility, but they often find enterprise-class solutions overkill for smaller environments.

As part of the joint activities DataCore will participate in Storage Focus, Europe's only storage channel conference. The event is designed for companies looking to increase their storage revenues, and complimentary places are available for those involved in the strategic development of their company's storage business. The exclusive channel-only event takes place:

Utrecht Netherlands: 11th June 2013
Brussels, Belgium: 13th June 2013
