In-depth Reports Analyzing FalconStor CDP and the Solutions It Enables:
|Best Practices for Optimizing IT: A Model for Data Services |
An optimized IT model is one that embraces advancements in server and storage technologies such as virtualization, data deduplication, continuous data protection, WAN optimization, and thin provisioning to enable a more service-oriented approach to IT. This paper outlines the best practices for implementing an optimized IT model to simplify IT and make it more cost-effective and operationally efficient.
|Freedom of Information: Managing Data in the Information Age |
According to a popular adage, information is knowledge, and knowledge is power. In today’s “Information Age,” the ability to store and access information is fundamentally changing the structure of today’s corporations, enabling them to capture, mine, analyze, and extract tidbits of data, which can provide new opportunities in how they interact with clients and market their products. Leading enterprises have succeeded because they have embraced data as a key enabler to their business and a source of competitive advantage. This white paper addresses the issue of ongoing data growth and explores how data management can help organizations overcome challenges and realize new opportunities
|Holistic and Efficient Protection for Oracle Databases with FalconStor CDP |
In an enterprise Oracle environment, FalconStor CDP optimizes application and data availability as well as storage management capabilities. This paper explains how FalconStor CDP delivers an enhanced backup, restore, and recovery regime that protects against soft and hard errors.
|Merging Backup and Disaster Recovery (DR) Processes |
For years, disaster recovery (DR) and data protection practices have consisted of two different technology islands — data protection and tape backup. The processes to implement both have usually been separate and handled by different IT departments. This paper describes how continuous data protection (CDP) technology can bridge various DR methodologies to help organizations overcome the challenges of tape and achieve maximum benefits from their IT investments.
|Optimizing Business Continuity And Disaster Recovery Capabilities for Microsoft Exchange |
FalconStor's solution for Microsoft Exchange delivers rapid, reliable, quality backup, restore, and recovery associated with routine and unplanned events, minimizing downtime, maximizing availability, streamlining storage administration, and reducing associated costs.
|RecoverTrac: Automated Service-oriented Disaster Recovery |
Protecting data means nothing if you can’t recover it. FalconStor® RecoverTrac™ automates complex DR tasks, bringing service-oriented recovery to physical and virtual server infrastructures. This paper discusses the technical concerns associated with DR, and explains in detail how RecoverTrac technology addresses a full range of DR challenges.
|Simplifying DR: One-Button Replication for Combined Physical/Virtual Data Centers |
Most organizations recognize that having a disaster recovery (DR) plan is mandatory. FalconStor Continuous Data Protector (CDP) can be deployed in conjunction with VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager to empower the solution to automate and manage the DR process (both failover and failback) between entire heterogeneous physical and virtual infrastructures.
|Using FalconStor CDP with Microsoft Exchange 2007 |
This technical white paper illustrates how to use FalconStor CDP to protect Microsoft Exchange 2007 servers and email databases, for rapid recovery to any point in time. It also explains how continuous real-time data journaling and periodic snapshots provide simple, rapid, and granular recovery to any point in time.
|WAN-optimized Heterogeneous Replication: Revolutionize Your IT Efficiency |
Replication has become part of the fabric of IT due to its multiple uses. However, replicating data can quickly increase bandwidth and storage costs. WAN optimization technologies can reduce the amount of bandwidth and storage capacity used for replication, enabling cost savings while maintaining application performance. For example, cost-effective WAN-optimized replication, built into FalconStor disaster recovery solutions, enables you to improve network performance, reduce contention for network bandwidth, and meet recovery point and recovery time objectives.
