FalconStor Accelerates VMware Backups

CANNES, France -- FalconStor Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: FALC), the provider of TOTALLY Open data protection solutions, today introduced HyperTrac™ Backup Accelerator for VMware Consolidated Backup, a backup enhancement option for VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB). HyperTrac technology for VMware environments integrates with FalconStor® Network Storage Server (NSS), a feature-rich open storage virtualisation and provisioning platform that provides a full range of data protection and DR solutions for the VMware platform.

The FalconStor HyperTrac technology for VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB) further extends FalconStor NSS services to VMware Infrastructure by optimising VCB backups in order to minimise impact on virtual machines and the storage servicing those environments. The no-impact backups enabled by FalconStor HyperTrac technology for VCB provides high performance backup for virtual machines, eliminating the disruption of backup windows required by traditional backup solutions for physical environments.

“VMware continues to work closely with FalconStor to extend the value of VMware Infrastructure and bring innovative storage virtualisation and data protection solutions to our customers,” said Parag Patel, vice president, alliances, VMware. “FalconStor’s HyperTrac Backup Accelerator for VMware Consolidated Backup enables VMware and FalconStor to provide customers with simplified, integrated, and optimised backup solutions.”
