FalconStor Addresses Solid State, Rolls Out Clustered De-Dupe

FalconStor's had a busy week: The vendor announced a team-up with Solid State Disk (SSD) specialist Violin Memory today, just days after overhauling its core IPStor software and extending its partnership with former Huawei subsidiary H3C.

FalconStor is just the latest vendor to throw its weight behind SSD technology , announcing that its Network Storage Server (NSS) software has been certified to work with Violin Memorys 1010 SSD appliance.

The NSS storage virtualization software can now be used to boost the performance of Violin’s SSD hardware, according to Peter Eicher, FalconStor’s product marketing manager.

“We can take their memory device and virtualize disks on it, basically creating virtual disks,” said Eicher. “We can also provision the disks manually or dynamically to different applications.”

SSDs are undoubtedly a growing presence in the storage market , and the two vendors are already eyeing opportunities in data-intensive verticals such as the financial sector.
