FalconStor Introduces New Products For End-to-End Availability
FalconStor Software today announced new additions to its solutions portfolio for end-to-end network availability -based on technology from recently acquired IP Metrics Software.
The new client and server options to FalconStor's flagship product, IPStor, enhance high availability on the SAN, complemented by the enterprise and standard edition of NIC Express, providing high network availability on the LAN. The additions are:
- DynaPath/IP and the IP Trunking options for the IPStor software suite, to provide highly available network storage to mission-critical servers throughout the enterprise.
- NIC Express Enterprise Edition, a new enterprise product for end-to-end network availability that creates redundant data paths between all network server and workstation endpoints.
- NIC Express Standard Edition, previously available from IP Metrics, for increasing the performance and reliability of individual servers and workstations.
"FalconStor continues to be a storage pioneer in the safeguarding of a company's business-critical data, and has established itself as a leader in this emerging market," said Jamie Gruener, senior analyst at the Yankee Group. "FalconStor understands the storage pains of the Fortune 1000 companies, and this announcement further increases the redundancy to protect a company's mission-critical data, by giving them freedom of choice to mix and match storage technologies from many vendors, while maintaining business continuity and high data availability across the network."
"Our firm is always looking for a better way to protect valuable business data while managing existing storage resources," said Steve Kedem, senior network engineer, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP. "NIC Express Enterprise Edition builds upon our solid information infrastructure, giving us more avenues of increased availability for our business-critical data, while allowing us to realize storage management benefits that have been difficult to achieve otherwise."
