Storage performance improvements at Nexsan using FalconStor technology

FalconStor Software : 22 January, 2010  (Application Story)
Nexsan has become a technology partner of FalconStor, using the company's Deduplication software for improving storage efficiences
FalconStor Software has announced version 2.0 of FalconStor File-interface Deduplication System (FDS), which takes LAN-based Deduplication to the next level of enterprise-class functionality with high availability and other enterprise capabilities. Nexsan is the first FalconStor technology partner to incorporate FalconStor FDS 2.0 into its storage offering in the Nexsan DeDupe SG 2.0 family of Deduplication appliances.

FalconStor FDS is designed for both small-to-medium-size businesses and large enterprises looking to reduce storage space and costs by writing backup data more efficiently to disk. With the addition of high availability, enterprises of all sizes will retain access to their backed-up data, ensuring that backups of critical systems can always be completed within narrow backup windows - which is especially important for databases that may run a company's ERP, CRM or other important applications. Other enterprise-class features in FDS 2.0 include:

* Support for Symantec OpenStorage (OST) delivers 5.4 terabytes per hour of backup data throughput, ingest rates of 1.5 gigabytes per second over two 10 Gigabit Ethernet links for double the performance.
* An increased fan-in ratio of 150-to-1 that supports more distributed environments and enhances the scope of global deduplication.
* An enhanced replication dashboard for real-time status monitoring.
* More granular, folder level, replication support.
* Policy driven end-to-end data integrity checking.
* Collision avoidance that ensures data consistency and prevents data loss.

"The release of Nexsan DeDupe SG 2.0, which integrates the advanced enterprise-class capabilities of FalconStor FDS 2.0, underscores our commitment to offering market-leading Deduplication solutions," said Bob Woolery, senior vice president of marketing for Nexsan. "Today's organizations require cost-effective solutions for high availability and continuous data access; the Nexsan DeDupe SG 2.0 meets these requirements while providing the optimized performance and efficiency enterprises of all sizes demand."

"With this significant enhancement to FalconStor FDS, FalconStor now leads the market in features, scalability and performance in enterprise-class Deduplication solutions for data centers," said Fadi Albatal, vice president of product marketing for FalconStor. "The market has been demanding a high-availability dedupe solution for NAS-based disk-to-disk backup environments, and we are the first to deliver."
