17 May 2019
FalconStor Software, Inc., incorporated on April 15, 1994, is a Software-Defined Storage (SDS) company offering a converged data services software platform that is hardware agnostic. The Company's platform FreeStor, allows information technology (IT) organizations minimize and eliminate that complexity with the delivery of migration, continuity, protection, recovery and optimization for any storage environment through a management interface for a price based on managed capacity across arrays, servers, hypervisors, data centers, and the cloud. Its Intelligent Abstraction core provides a scalable storage hypervisor, coupled with a data services engine and automation. Its Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery products include network storage server (NSS) and continuous data protector (CDP). Its Optimized Backup and Deduplication (OBD) products merge its virtual tape library (VTL) and file-interface deduplication system (FDS) solutions. The Company is focused on offering solutions in various areas, including data migration, continuous availability, data protection + recovery and optimization.
FreeStor is a software-defined, hardware agnostic platform that delivers a heterogeneous data services approach. FreeStor helps information technology (IT) organizations by delivering migration, continuity, protection, recovery and optimization services for any storage environment through a single management interface. This is accomplished through the introduction of its Intelligent Abstraction core IO engine, which provides a scalable storage hypervisor, coupled with a data services engine and automation, to manage the provisioning and management of storage resources. The Intelligent Abstraction core optimizes storage resources regardless of type, connectivity, brand or speed, into a storage resource pool that can be provisioned to physical or virtual applications, along with common, unified data services across that pool.
FalconStor Network Storage Server (NSS)
FalconStor Network Storage Server (NSS) is a scalable solution that enables storage virtualization and business continuity in heterogeneous environments. Its storage virtualization technology provides a non-disruptive approach to data mobility across various storage area network (SAN) protocols and vendors. Its data protection services include real-time synchronous mirroring, volume snapshots, and site-to-site wide area network (WAN)-optimized data replication, and leverages the RecoverTrac tool for automated disaster recovery. FalconStor NSS integrates with and enhances VMware technologies, such as VMware vSphere, VMware vCenter and VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager. FalconStor NSS enables and automates server-less backup processes.
FalconStor Continuous Data Protector (CDP)
FalconStor CDP combines local and remote protection into a unified, disk-based solution that allows organizations to recover data back to the recent transaction. FalconStor CDP protects application-specific data for Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, and other business applications. It uses technologies, including application integration, physical-to-virtual recovery, WAN-optimized replication and disaster recovery automation through the FalconStor RecoverTrac tool. FalconStor CDP enables and automates server-less backup processes with its Zero-Impact backup features and manages application and system disruption during data protection. Its backup server integration tools offload backup processes from the server to the FalconStor CDP repository, freeing up the application host server and completely eliminating the backup window. The FalconStor CDP Virtual Appliance is a pre-configured, ready-to-run software application. The FalconStor CDP Virtual Appliance provides all the features of FalconStor CDP to the remote and branch office to enable data protection and recovery solutions across the enterprise.
FalconStor RecoverTrac Disaster Recovery Automation Tool
The FalconStor RecoverTrac disaster recovery automation tool is included as a feature of the FalconStor NSS and the FalconStor CDP solutions to automate failover and failback operations of systems, applications, services and entire data centers. The RecoverTrac tool streamlines the implementation, testing and execution of disaster recovery (DR) operations. It manages service failover time between sites. This tool can also convert across those environments, enabling organizations to migrate locally, remotely or to and from cloud environments.
FalconStor Optimized Backup and Deduplication (OBD)
FalconStor OBD takes the functionality of two of its products, VTL and FDS, and combines them into a single platform with a common user interface. FalconStor OBD presents network-attached storage (NAS) interface accessibility to a block-level deduplication repository through common local area network (LAN)-based file-access protocols, such as common Internet file system (CIFS) and network file system (NFS). In addition, FalconStor OBD provides a shared deduplication repository that spans multiple application sources, environments and storage protocols. FalconStor OBD also supports small and remote office environments through FalconStor OBD storage appliances and small footprint virtual appliances.
The Company competes with Hewlett-Packard Company, EMC Corporation, IBM, Nexenta and DataCore.
