Data backup and disaster recovery (BDR) vendor FalconStor Software, Inc. (FALC) launched today the newest version of its FalconStor Continuous Data Protector (CDP) and FalconStor Network Storage Server (NSS) data protection solutions with RecoverTrac disaster recovery (DR) to automation technology to enhance the way customers can move, store and protect data.
The company said enhancements include: minimal impact on production data, enhanced DR automation, Microsoft (MSFT) environment protection, and secure, efficient replication.
The details of each enhancement are as follows:
Minimal impact on production data — Production operations have full access to storage volumes while data is managed, protected and available – enabling non-disruptive mining of copy data and eliminating the need for dedicated storage for business intelligence.
Enhanced DR automation — RecoverTrac technology now offers recovery to preserve resource allocation, customizable service awareness for accurate recovery, VMware (VMW) vSphere 5.5 support, networking support for recovery with jumbo frames, and failback accuracy with prepare to failback.
Microsoft environment protection — The RecoverTrac tool now supports protection and recovery of physical and virtual machines running Windows 2012 and any virtual machine running on Microsoft Hyper-V 3.0 environments.
Secure, efficient replication — Customers can replicate multiple types of data quickly, each with its own encryption format, which adds an extra layer of security when moving data from the data center to remote locations.
FalconStor Vice President of Product Marketing and Enablement Tim Sheets told MSPmentor that the company is not interested in becoming a cloud provider. He said the company’s goal is to provide the infrastructure to help run the cloud.
Sheets said partners with questions about the company’s strength going forward can take a look at the FalconStor’s partnerships with top-tier technology companies, including IBM (IBM). He said vendors like IBM only partner with financially stable companies.
FalconStor will begin shipping the next version of the FalconStor CDP and FalconStor NSS solutions with RecoverTrac DR automation technology on October 8, 2013.
FalconStor announced last week that it qualified as an HP (HPQ) AllianceONE CloudSystem Ready partner and is working with HP to offer joint FalconStor Network Storage Server (NSS) solutions that allow HP CloudSystem to fully automate provisioning with a wide variety of third-party storage systems.
