FalconStor, V2 Bundle

BASINGSTOKE, U.K. -- FalconStor Software and V2 Electronics today announced a new range of storage appliances based on V2s portfolio of hardware platforms and FalconStor’s sophisticated, award-winning data protection solutions. By bundling specific FalconStor data protection functionality with V2’s long-established hardware and pre-certifying each combination, V2 and FalconStor are simplifying the deployment of advanced, enterprise-level data protection solutions. The certified V2 data protection solutions will be available from V2 Electronics across Europe.

Initially three specific solutions from FalconStor’s IPStor® platform have been bundled with V2 hardware: FalconStor VirtualTape Library (VTL), FalconStor Continuous Data Protection (CDP), and FalconStor Network Storage System (NSS). All three types of appliances will come in five models: from the entry-level 110 for small satellite offices, to the 210 and the 220, which offer built-in storage capacity, to the 310 and the 350, for the SME and enterprise data centres/head offices, for attachment to existing or new external storage devices.

Paul Hickingbotham, Solutions Manager, V2, said: “Resellers will welcome the ease of specification, pricing, and deployment of the new V2/FalconStor appliances, which will enable a cleaner, more efficient, transparent sales process both for the reseller and the customer.

“FalconStor has an outstanding track record and a great reputation for delivering advanced data protection services via specialised appliances,” he added. “We believe our customers will welcome the opportunity to acquire such advanced software on hardware platforms they’ve grown to know and trust for more than a decade.”

Belgian integrator Comparex is one of the first resellers to take delivery of one of the new appliances, on behalf of its customer Mutualités Socialistes du Hainaut Occidental. Lieven De Smedt, Chief Executive Officer, Comparex Belgium, said: “Customers want to buy predictability and reliability as well as functionality. This is a great advantage of these certified appliances.”
