FalconStor Software, Inc., the provider of TOTALLY Open data protection solutions, today announced FalconStor’s comprehensive support for Oracle VM, Oracle’s server virtualization platform. FalconStor’s storage virtualization and data replication solutions for virtual servers are now integrated and available for Oracle VM, bringing a high level of data protection, recoverability and continuous availability to Oracle virtual environments.

“Oracle’s collaboration with FalconStor complements the Oracle VM environment with well-integrated storage virtualization and data protection capabilities that bring value to our customers,” said Wim Coekaerts, vice president of Linux and Virtualization Engineering, Oracle. “Oracle VM helps customers drive down the cost and complexity of their enterprise IT infrastructures, while FalconStor solutions introduce viable data availability and rapid recovery.”

FalconStor® Network Storage Server (NSS), an intelligent storage virtualization and provisioning platform, integrates with Oracle VM to enable data mobility and centralized storage management for Oracle VM servers. FalconStor® Continuous Data Protector (CDP) integrates with Oracle VM deployments to provide WAN-optimized replication and to enable automated and seamless operations failover to a remote disaster recovery site.

FalconStor® Application Snapshot Director (ASD) for Oracle VM will bring application-consistent data protection to Oracle VM environments, guaranteeing transactional integrity to reduce recovery times and enable continuous data availability during storage or system failure. FalconStor®HyperTrac™ Backup Accelerator works with Oracle Secure Backup (OSB) to provide high-performance, zero-impact backups for Oracle VM servers by offloading backup processes from the virtual server.

“Data protection in virtual environments is the next great challenge for IT organizations, which are all turning to virtualization to consolidate operations and control costs,” said Bernie Wu, vice president of business development at FalconStor Software. “FalconStor’s solutions complete the virtual infrastructure puzzle by providing comprehensive data protection services. We integrate seamlessly with Oracle VM and work hand-in-hand with Oracle’s backup tools, including Oracle Secure Backup and Oracle Recovery Manager, to optimize the Oracle virtualization environment for efficiency and high availability.”
