Enhancements specific to the FalconStor NSS solution include a stretch cluster configurator, storage-agnostic data migration for cloud deployments and a single plane of glass for managing storage and server operations.

  • Stretch cluster configurator: New automated configurator simplifies the set up and configuration of stretch metro clusters, increasing data availability, reducing the risk of downtime and improving business continuity.
  • Data movement to and from the cloud: The FalconStor NSS solution enables data migration to and from cloud infrastructures, allowing managed service providers to deliver business continuity, data protection and disaster recovery services.
  • Microsoft Windows 2012 storage management support: Integration with the Windows 2012 storage management interface provides organizations a mechanism to manage, provision and monitor FalconStor storage devices from Windows 2012 servers.
  • Further VMware integration: With FalconStor NSS storage virtualization technology, organizations can offload CPU-intensive read, write and clone processes to storage devices and can utilize thin provisioning with space reclamation support for all storage devices connected by vStorage APIs for Array Integration (VAAI).

"FalconStor's enhanced data protection and DR technologies will provide our customers with improved performance and high-availability storage environments," said Christopher Peyton, operations manager, hosted services, at Open Storage Solutions, a business partner of FalconStor Software. "The automated stretch cluster configurator will be vital in mobilizing customers' data to remove the risk of data center failure and to improve business continuity operations. In addition, as companies continue to implement private, public or hybrid cloud solutions, the secure data migration feature of the FalconStor NSS solution will be a key component of these clouds."
