FalconStor & RTBF Tout Success

BRUSSELS -- FalconStor Software, Inc., the market leader in disk-based data protection solutions, today announced that Radio Tlévision Belge de la Communauté Française (RTBF), one of Belgium’s premier television and radio stations, has implemented the FalconStor® Network Storage Server (NSS) solution powered by the FalconStor® IPStor® virtualization platform, to meet the storage consolidation and data protection challenges associated with a major restructuring of its business.

The deployment has enabled RTBF to consolidate data from seven remote sites into just two sites. RTBF has configured two NSS appliances - one at each site – that interact through Fibre Channel as a High Availability active cluster, enabling transparent failover and synchronous mirroring of data between the two sites, ensuring comprehensive business continuity and disaster recovery contingency.

Christian Neybuch, Systems Engineer at RTBF, said: “One of the most important capabilities of the FalconStor NSS solution is that it gives us the ability to rapidly and easily switch from one site to the other or from one storage subsystem to the other on a single site. It gives us complete flexibility, while reducing the number of databases we need to consolidate our data storage in only two sites.”
