FalconStor Intros 'Thin' DR

MELVILLE, N.Y. -- FalconStor Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: FALC - News), the provider of TOTALLY Open network storage solutions, today announced global enhancements to the FalconStor® Network Storage Server (NSS), Continuous Data Protector™ (CDP), and Virtual Tape Library (VTL) solutions. All are powered by an optimized FalconStor IPStor® virtualization platform, resulting in better storage efficiencies and storage management through thin disaster recovery, proficient virtual appliances, and accelerated storage application performance.

“Insatiable storage growth, coupled with staff shortages and budget constraints, make thin provisioning a strategically important feature, providing the simplest and most flexible method for dynamically expanding volumes today,” said Stan Zaffos, research vice president at Gartner. “Thin provisioning’s profound benefits for IT organizations include improved staff productivity, higher end-user satisfaction rates, increased storage utilization, more accurate capacity forecasts, and smaller environmental footprints – all of which mean reduced costs. Applied in a business continuity scenario, thin provisioning ensures that only data actually written to the storage system is copied to or from a D/R site.”
