Rod Lucero, chief architect for IT at $2.2 billion manufactured-housing lender Conseco Finance Corp., was only looking for a new way to back up his data as part of his disaster recovery planning when he decided to buy SANsymphony storage management software. But he says he has gotten a lot more than that from the technology offered by Fort Lauderdale-based DataCore Software Corp.

The ability to pool his storage was “a huge, huge benefit,” Lucero says. And he hasn’t even been using the software a full year yet.
