Virtual Iron, FalconStor Join Virtual Forces

Virtual Iron and FalconStor have joined forces in an attempt to tap the growing demand for virtualized data.

But the results are likely to disappoint those looking for real integration of server and storage virtualization.

Virtual Iron will now reference-sell FalconStor's Network Storage Server (NSS) and Continuous Data Protector (CDP) products, while the storage vendor reference-sells its partner's eponymous virtualization software.

The two firms have also certified each others' technology and are working to sell their products through joint resellers and systems integrators.

The FalconStor/Virtual Iron move follows a major partnership between XenSource, now part of Citrix, and Symantec last year. Under the terms of the deal, Symantec's Storage Foundation product line is being embedded into XenSource's XenEnterprise offering.
