FalconStor Software, Inc. recently showcased its data protection platform at the Gartner Data Center Conference held December 9-12, 2013 at The Venetian Resort Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV.

“As cloud services continue to grow in the United States, and more and more organizations migrate data to virtual environments, the need for data mobility with service-oriented data protection and recovery becomes even more important,” said Chris Poelker, vice president, Enterprise Solutions, FalconStor; and on-site Gartner Data Center Conference attendee. “FalconStor technology is designed to move and protect data going in and out of the cloud, as well as provide a worry-free disaster recovery plan in case of an emergency. We partner with the industry’s leading cloud service providers to help customers leverage the cloud to reduce costs and improve efficiencies.”

FalconStor offers an award-winning data protection platform built to support virtually any IT environment, physical to physical, physical to virtual, or virtual to virtual. Its WAN-optimized replication reduces bandwidth requirements and the cost of remote replication, while minimizing the time needed to transmit data to the cloud service provider.

In August 2013, FalconStor was also qualified as an HP AllianceONE CloudSystem Ready partner. By developing a Storage Provisioning Manager (SPM) adapter for FalconStor NSS, HP CloudSystem is able to employ FalconStor’s storage virtualization gateway technology for automatic provisioning and management of any storage system on FalconStor’s extensive hardware compatibility list. HP CloudSystem is designed for infrastructure-as-a-service for private and hybrid cloud environments, and includes a self-service portal for automatic storage provisioning and lifecycle management capabilities that optimize infrastructure, manage resources and help ensure uptime.

Concat AG, a joint HP and FalconStor channel partner in Germany, is currently working with a large municipal government to deploy HP CloudSystem with the HP SPM adapter for FalconStor NSS for a dedicated public cloud for its automated IT services program.

FalconStor delivers cloud centric storage automation and disaster recovery solutions to its partners: nScaled, Fujitsu Limited, Global Storage, Data Agility Group, MapleTronics Computers, and GDL Solutions.
