FalconStor Extends De-Dupe Line

MELVILLE, N.Y. -- FalconStor Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: FALC), the provider of TOTALLY Open data protection solutions, today announced a new file-interface data deduplication system along with enhancements and support for high-performance connectivity to its widely deployed Virtual Tape Library (VTL) software.

With the addition of a network interface to FalconStor’s deduplication product line, customers can choose a network interface or a VTL interface or both, depending on data center requirements. FalconStor’s new file-interface deduplication system is a block-level deduplication solution that presents a network share interface as a backup repository, offering customers another space-saving option for writing data efficiently and cost-effectively to disk. In addition, small- and medium-size businesses (SMBs) receive simple, efficient disk-to-disk backup and replication capabilities that reduce cost and improve the bottom line.

"FalconStor's introduction of a file-interface deduplication system is important both for FalconStor and for its customers,” said Eric Burgener, senior analyst at The Taneja Group. "It brings FalconStor's industry-leading D2D backup technology, more widely deployed than any other through their various OEM and indirect channels, to an entirely new space: NAS-based D2D backup. This promises to shake things up for existing NAS D2D vendors and extends the benefits of FalconStor's highly scalable deduplication technology to a new customer base that values many of the same features that made FalconStor the industry leader in the VTL arena."
