Acer servers to incorporate FalconStor data protection.

FalconStor Software : 23 October, 2007  (Application Story)
FalconStor reaches agreement with Acer to include FalconStor's VirtualTape Library in Acer servers for improved data protection in mid-sized enterprises.
FalconStor Software and Acer have announced that Acer will introduce Acer Storage Repository (ASR) powered by FalconStor VirtualTape Library (VTL) with data de-duplication into the mid-market.

"We are going to start presenting the ASR at the Altos Cafe' kicking off on the 4th of November in 10 cities in ANZ," said Bert Noah, Director of Enterprise Systems Group, Acer Oceanic Region. "Our target market is small to medium enterprises, which includes universities, private schools, local councils, small government departments, and mid-tier corporations. These customers have a high level of scrutiny by law, for instance, schools & universities have to maintain archived records for 30 years and councils have to maintain records Near Line even longer."

"The FalconStor VirtualTape Library is the number one VTL in the world and is OEM'd or resold by most major storage vendors. After extensive evaluation and tests by our team, FalconStor had the best offering across all 4 key functional blocks - optimising backup, tape management, data de-duplication, and global de-dupe replication - for data protection. Acer Altos R7-series servers powered by FalconStor VTL with data de-duplication provide these customers a turnkey backup and recovery appliance that is capable of giving them 60-200 days backup retention on disk with the ability to grow that as their primary storage grows. It also offers the ability to have a DR site with one-to-one or many-to-one replication," Bert Noah continued. "FalconStor´s proven data protection technology supports both 4Gb FC and 1GbE iSCSI high speed interaction between the backup server and VTL helping backup administrators to overcome the challenges of shrinking backup windows and explosive data growth."

"We are exceptionally pleased to be the data protection solutions of choice for Acer as it ventures deeper into the SMB and ROBO data storage and data protection market," said Dr Eric Chen, General Manager of FalconStor Asia Pacific. "With deep server and storage solutions experience, a nationwide support and service system, and a robust marketing program composed of both direct sales and channel partners, Acer is well positioned to succeed with its new product line."
