Violin Qualifies FalconStor NSS

ISELIN, N.J. -- Violin Memory, Inc., a provider of the worlds fastest and most scalable memory appliances, today announced it has successfully tested the Violin 1010 memory appliance with the FalconStor® Network Storage Server (NSS) from FalconStor Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: FALC). The Violin 1010 memory appliance and the FalconStor NSS can be integrated within a solution to meet the high performance, virtualized data storage demands of enterprise data centers.

The Violin 1010 memory appliance supports up to 1/2TB of DRAM in 2U and significantly reduces the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of Tier-Ø memory in the data center by offering industry-leading scalability, performance and reduced power. The memory appliance features low latency and IOPS that are 1000X faster than hard disk and 50X faster than Flash SSDs. As a result, applications can be accelerated by a factor of 10 – 100X.

FalconStor provides industry-leading software that can be configured to solve the data storage and data protection challenges facing specific application environments. Built on a TOTALLY open network storage solution platform, the FalconStor NSS delivers high performance inline storage virtualization with a wide range of data protection features.

Combining these two technologies and products, enterprise data centers can benefit from the industry’s most scalable data deduplication, storage caching and Tier-Ø solutions. Tier-Ø is the natural extension of tiered storage and provides orders of magnitude lower latency and higher IOPS than disk-based storage systems.

“Violin’s memory appliance offers unparalleled speed, scalability and a compelling combination of price and performance, which can be leveraged with the advanced storage services and the Fibre Channel and InfiniBand protocols of the FalconStor NSS,” said Bernie Wu, FalconStor vice president of business development. “Working together, FalconStor and Violin can enable a wide-range of high performance, low latency storage I/O intensive applications that were previously unaffordable.”
