FalconStor Software Enables Fully Virtualized Server and Storage Infrastructure with High Availability for VMware Environments

FalconStor Software, Inc., the market leader in disk-based data protection solutions, today announced that companies that are deploying virtualization infrastructures based on VMware are implementing FalconStor’s data protection solutions for high availability and disaster recovery (DR) of business-critical applications. With FalconStor solutions, new customers like Rug Doctor, 3t Systems, Alea North America Insurance Company, Illinois Math & Science Academy and Domino North America can enable fully virtualized server and storage infrastructures with high availability while saving money on VMware deployments.

Server virtualization has become the latest technology that allows IT to efficiently use resources; however, it has created challenges and opportunities for data backup and disaster recovery. FalconStor® Network Storage Server (NSS) and FalconStor® Continuous Data Protector (CDP) help reduce VMware management costs, enhance virtual machine mobility and protect data to ensure availability and rapid recovery. Additionally, the following benefits can be realized:

  • Achieving “five-nines” availability of VMware infrastructure deployments with continuous data protection
  • Enabling instant recovery of VMware servers and virtual machines
  • Slashing DR costs with DR automation and physical-to-virtual replication and failover

Through the use of continuous data protection and storage virtualization, companies are able to focus on their business objectives without worrying about downtime. The FalconStor NSS solution helps reduce VMware management and supporting infrastructure costs and enhances virtual machine mobility. Additionally, FalconStor CDP software is essential for companies seeking continuous availability of mission-critical applications and quick file and service recovery.

“Server virtualization is creating an opportunity for companies to improve infrastructure efficiency, enable data mobility and enhance overall business processes. Yet in order to fully capitalize on virtualization, companies need to protect their data to ensure continuous availability and rapid local and remote recovery,” said Fadi Albatal, vice president of marketing for FalconStor Software. “FalconStor’s solutions address the data protection challenges introduced by server infrastructure consolidation by enabling full data protection and mobility of virtual machines and by unifying backup and DR processes.”

As a certified partner of VMware, FalconStor has ensured that its data protection capabilities are fully compatible with VMware infrastructure.
