DataCore Software is stretching the size of its virtual disks from 2 terabytes to 1 petabyte.
DataCore says clients are eager to group multiple disk drives, each exceeding 1TB, into redundant array of inexpensive disks (RAID) sets. With this release, DataCore storage virtualization nodes can control pools consisting of numerous RAID sets, each well over the previous 2TB maximum.
According to the company, demand has also been strong from applications seeking to update and analyze very large datasets that in the foreseeable future will grow well past the 2TB cap.
The new software release is available immediately. DataCore customers under current maintenance contracts are eligible to receive the 1PB software enhancements at no charge.
