Challenger: DataCore

Product Evaluated: Hyperconverged Virtual SAN version 10 PSP7

Product Score: 1.95

Strategy Score: 1.94

Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based DataCore ranks last in both overall product offering and HCI strategy. However, the company scored the highest in customer feedback with a perfect score of 5. DataCore's scored the lowest in both corporate and product strategy, as well as one of the worst scores in both solution scalability and storage functions.

DataCore's Hyperconverged Virtual SAN leverages existing software assets and offers the unique ability to pool existing SAN capability into an HCI deployment. It can scale compute and storage independently by using external storage for capacity and tiering. The solution is only available as software and is licensed by storage capacity. DataCore supports one of the smallest configurations, requiring only two nodes for a cluster which is ideal for remote office deployments. DataCore has fully functional public-facing REST and PowerShell APIs that users can leverage to manage DataCore instances. Forrester said the company needs to further automate and abstract storage-focused operational tasks that clients want managed for them.
