Global de-duplication features in virtual tape library release.

FalconStor Software : 23 January, 2008  (New Product)
Open architecture of virtual tape library product from FaclonStor enables high levels of connectivity and integration, essential for global de-duplication.
FalconStor Software has once again raised the bar with the release of the next generation of FalconStor Virtual Tape Library (VTL). FalconStor VTL Enterprise Edition is the industry's most open, scalable and powerful VTL solution, delivering unmatched performance with minimal operating cost via tight integration with third party backup software, disk arrays, and physical tape libraries, as well as advanced media management capabilities.

FalconStor VTL Enterprise Edition integrates with FalconStor's clustered de-duplication technology, Single Instance Repository (SIR), and is designed with scalable IO performance and storage capacity to accommodate implementations ranging from remote offices to enterprise data centres.

"Our enterprise has relied upon the FalconStor VTL for more than four years," said Sandor Orban, Storage Infrastructure Manager, at Sunrise AG, Switzerland's largest independent telecommunications provider. "The FalconStor VTL continues to seamlessly support our growing IT infrastructure as it expands. The product constantly surpasses our expectations in its reliability and stability."

'A strategic technology partner, FalconStor works with Sun to deliver the enhanced features of FalconStor VTL and provide both high performance data protection with seamless integration and de-duplication to customers," said David Kenyon, Vice President, Storage Marketing, Sun Microsystems, Inc. "This innovative solution provides unsurpassed efficiency through the migration of older data from disk storage onto low-energy-use tapes, saving money and with lower impact on the environment."

"For over four years FalconStor and Copan have been focused on delivering solutions that meet the massive scalability requirements of the enterprise. The positive feedback we regularly receive from our mutual customers has allowed us to continue to lead the industry with enterprise class VTL & SIR functionality. I am excited that FalconStor's recent announcement strengthens our ability to deliver significant benefit to our enterprise clients," said Mark Ward President and CEO of COPAN Systems.

FalconStor's 'Totally Open' architecture enables its strategic and channel partners to implement FalconStor VTL as a Linux or Solaris appliance or as a Virtual Appliance under VMware by using state-of-the-art connectivity (4Gb FC, 10Gb Ethernet or 20Gb Infiniband) and disk arrays (SATA, SAS, FC, MAID) to meet the diverse demands of enterprise customers.

The 'Totally Open' architecture enables tight integration with third party backup software vendors to offer innovative features like "NDMP tape copy" and "hosted server backup enabler" to reduce cost of ownership. In addition, FalconStor VTL's 'Open' architecture interfaces with industry standard tape libraries, via SCSI, FC or ACSLS, to reduce media handling cost by offering advanced media management services such as virtual media shredding and physical media duplication, stacking, and encryption.

With its integration of SIR de-duplication technologies, FalconStor VTL Enterprise Edition enables companies to optimise disk storage, greatly expanding the on-line retention capacity and replication efficiency. FalconStor VTL Enterprise Edition provides more capacity with greater connectivity than ever before, more virtual tape libraries, greater numbers of drives and cartridges, more backups per disk, and scalability of up to 8 nodes with high-availability. FalconStor VTL's consolidated tape management and reporting capabilities are crucial for large organisations to better track the system/capacity utilisation and the status of scheduled activities such as tape duplication and replication.

"The FalconStor VTL Enterprise software architecture provides concurrent overlap backups with de-duplication, offering throughput speeds well suited to scaling to high capacity enterprise environments," states Laura Dubois, Research Director, IDC Storage Software. "This latest version of software offerings which include clustering, tape consolidation and encryption features, are mandatory in today's availability, capacity and security conscious data centres."

"FalconStor is the recognised market leader in VTL for good reason - we continuously provide customers with the most innovative features available via seamless integration with the existing backup environment," said ReiJane Huai, CEO, FalconStor. "For this release we streamlined the manageability and operability of our VTL solution to offer the highest performance and most massively scalable enterprise-class VTL on the market. With global de-duplication, robust media management, and unmatched performance, FalconStor VTL improves the dependability and efficiency of the backup/recovery infrastructure for any size enterprise."
