8 Copyright © 2013 DataCore Software Corp. – All Rights Reserved. Performance Costs Management 8 Challenges of Storage Architectures  Heterogeneous storage management is non-existent  Planned downtime is impossible  Vendor lock-in cripples innovation  Applications are becoming more demanding  Server/desktop virtualization creates bottlenecks  Low utilization of storage  Hardware maintenance and refresh cycles are a pain

9 Copyright © 2013 DataCore Software Corp. – All Rights Reserved. 9 The Typical Solution? MORE Incompatible Hardware

10 Copyright © 2013 DataCore Software Corp. – All Rights Reserved. 3 Pool all storage capacity and provide centralized management In theory, software should be able to do a few things… 1 Enable different storage devices to communicate with one another Why Software-defined Storage? Make hardware maintenance, data migrations, and hardware refreshes easy 4 Separate advances in software from advances in hardware 2

11 Copyright © 2013 DataCore Software Corp. – All Rights Reserved. DataCore is committed to creating an enduring and dynamic software-driven storage architecture liberating storage from static hardware-based limitations 11 The DataCore Vision “ George Teixeira DataCore CEO 1998 “
