FalconStor Announces Offerings For VMware Environments, Bridging Physical And Virtual Infrastructures

New Offerings for Heterogeneous Disaster Recovery, Storage Virtualization Management and a Deduplication Virtual Appliance Expand FalconStor's Support for VMware vSphere 4


MELVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FalconStor Software, Inc. the provider of TOTALLY Open data protection solutions, today announced comprehensive offerings for supporting, enhancing and extending data protection in VMware vSphere 4 environments with new solution introductions and expansions. The initiative encompasses continuous availability, virtual storage management and a breadth of virtual appliance solutions - all three areas critical to maximizing the business value of virtual infrastructure deployments in heterogeneous environments.

At VMworld 2009, FalconStor is introducing new storage management and new disaster recovery (DR) extensions for VMware vCenter Server and VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager that provide virtual machine storage provisioning as well as automated failback of remote virtual machines to the primary data center. Additionally, FalconStor is demonstrating its new FalconStor File-interface Deduplication System Virtual Appliance (FDS VA) for easy-to-deploy data deduplication for VMware vSphere 4 environments.

"Managing separate point data protection solutions for a physical data center" and for a virtual environment is challenging, complex and can be error prone," said Dave Russell, Research Vice President, Storage Technologies and Strategies, at Gartner. "Companies should seriously consider storage virtualization and data protection solutions that are tightly integrated and can provide the same level of services for both physical and virtual infrastructures."

Continuous Availability: Added Features for VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager

FalconStor solutions provide continuous availability of physical and virtual as well as local and remote resources, giving IT managers comprehensive business continuity and DR coverage. FalconStor's two new DR extensions for VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager automate failover of physical and virtual hosts to the DR site and provide automated failback support of virtualized servers from the DR site to the primary data center:
