We heard from Carlos Carreras from DataCore today about the public beta for DriveHarmony.
We’ve told you about DriveHarmony’s beta before. This is the DE replacement add-in being brought to market by DataCore and is based on the pooling technology that is currently in production in enterprise data centers across the world.
This is what Carlos had to say about the beta:
Jim, the beta is ready to go, we are preparing the download site and a support site. I’m hoping our web guys get both done by today. We have received an overwhelming response to our request for beta testers so we plan to open it to all. The beta will be a 30 day eval version of the software.
As soon as we have URL’s to share with you, we’ll publish them.
And he sort of commented about the Tranquil situation:
No public comment as our activities with Tranquil are under NDA. Nothing to publish on this… we’re focusing our attention on getting the broader beta out and continuing our dialogue with prospective OEMs.
I’ve asked Carlos to keep us posted on any OEM developments, so we’ll bring you those as we hear from DataCore.
Hopefully, this week we will all get a chance to download a 30 day evaluation copy of DriveHarmony so we can test it out!
