Software and emBoot Inc. announced an affordable solution that enables administrators to use DataCore's SANmelody and SANsymphony software platforms and emBoot's netBoot/i software to allow Windows servers to remotely boot off an iSCSI IP-SAN using any standard Ethernet network interface card - eliminating the requirement for local, internal disk drives. Businesses simplify their ability to quickly re-purpose their systems and gain cost savings by enabling true diskless operation and added business continuity with a simple and fast recovery approach for local boot disk failures. Users can rapidly recover their systems from disasters by booting from an emergency OS image located on the SANmelody- or SANsymphony-powered IP-SAN. By using the DataCore and netBoot/i combination, users and network administrators finally can take advantage of standard LAN connections to improve uptime and lower their cost of Windows-based SANs, server farms, utility computing grids, and disaster recovery deployments.

"DataCore Software and emBoot are working together to improve the overall customer experience and to eliminate the recovery time for system disk failures and the cost burden of having boot drives on each system," said Carl Foggin, Director of Business Development for emBoot. "Together we allow companies to implement lower-cost server provisioning and consolidation strategies and increase their overall system uptime."
