This summer, FalconStor employees put on their hard hats and work boots, volunteering at local Habitat for Humanity build sites in Suffolk County, New York. FalconStor sponsored build days in June and July and sent teams of 15-20 volunteers to build, paint, demo, and more!
As one of the FalconStor volunteers, I can tell you first hand that volunteering for HFH was a hugely rewarding experience. Our CEO, Jim McNiel, has often spoken of our core values as a company and as a community. We believe in holding ourselves to high standards of integrity, commitment, respect, teamwork, and the pursuit of knowledge in both our professional and personal lives. As I watched employees working together to build homes for families in need, I couldn’t help but think that our collective effort at the build site was the complete embodiment of those values.
To put it simply, we’re a company filled with committed, hard-working, and downright good-natured people. It’s no surprise that employees were ready and willing to actively support our community through Habitat for Humanity. We were able to help local families in need of adequate and affordable housing, one hammer swing at a time. And not only did we get our hands dirty, we had a great time doing it! We hope the families enjoy their homes as much as we enjoyed helping to build them.

The Reality of Data Domain Claims Featured
When I read the announcement "EMC Transforms Backup and Recovery Landscape…", I was surprised to find out that their new DD990 was "over 6x faster than their nearest competitor." If we compare this to FalconStor's enterprise solution offerings currently available, that would mean that the DD990 could ingest data at a rate of over 168TB per hour. Hmm, let's consider the facts. FalconStor can ingest a sustained 28TB per hour with our inline global deduplication. So then I ventured to the EMC website and found that they actually ingest data at only 31TB per hour inline (PEAK). FalconStor also offers the option to utilize policy-based post-processing for an ingest performance of 40TB per hour and the flexibility to switch between inline and post-process deduplication based on the particular needs of the business because one size does not fit all. Looking closer at EMC's posted numbers, you will find that they only get 15TB per hour inline ingest without utilizing BOOST. BOOST requires the customer to host the deduplication processing on their backup servers, which creates hidden costs and complexity.
We could detail the advantages of the FalconStor products vs. EMC, such as flexible deduplication, high availability, simplified licensing, and many other features, but common sense should put EMC's statement into the 'too good to be true' category. It looks like FalconStor’s position as having the fastest sustained deduplication speeds in the industry still stands, with 28TB per hour with inline deduplication and 40TB per hour with post-process deduplication.
