|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
|Global Application and SAN Acceleration with Solid-State Storage |
Solid-state storage or memory is an increasingly popular storage offering, providing quick response times and high rates of IOPS. This paper investigates the deployment models of solid-state storage, and explains how FalconStor NSS SAN Accelerator enhances this technology to deliver additional value through application-specific and global SAN acceleration.
|Optimizing Blade Environments with IPStor |
FalconStor´s IPStor software is the first solution to deliver storage pooling and storage services for blade servers, overcoming current limitations in blade technology and resulting in extremely manageable, secure data environments combining ultra-high availability and optimal performance.
|Optimizing Storage for VDI Deployments |
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) provides a new computing model by centralizing physical desktops into virtualized desktop server farms. The resulting environment offers increased manageability, enhanced security and data protection, while providing new capabilities such as anywhere, anytime access for teleworkers.
|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.
|Replicate with Integrity: Protecting VMware Data to Ensure Fast Recovery, Business Continuity |
As organizations increasingly adopt virtualization, they have begun to leverage remote replication as a means of increasing system availability. This is a simpler, more cost-efficient alternative to using traditional physical servers for disaster recovery (DR). This white paper discusses how technologies from FalconStor and VMware work together to deliver application-consistent replication for automated DR in a virtual environment.
|Taking VMware VAAI to the Next Dimension |
Learn how you can extend the use of VMware vStorage API for Array Integration (VAAI) across heterogeneous SAN environments. With the FalconStor NSS Gateway Appliance solution, VMware VAAI hardware acceleration is no longer constrained to a single array enclosure. This technical white paper explores the strengths of VMware VAAI and uncovers how to fully leverage these benefits using the FalconStor NSS Gateway Appliance. See how FalconStor NSS can provide a maximum return on your virtualization technology investments.
|The Value of Storage Virtualization |
Over the past several years, virtualization has evolved from a popular buzzword into a formidable strategic technology that many organizations have adopted and many others are strongly considering. This white paper addresses the specific topic of storage virtualization and the ways in which it enhances the performance and efficiency of IT in light of today’s constant, sometimes staggering data growth. Within the context of storage networking issues, this document details the key elements of an effective, comprehensive storage virtualization solution, as well as the numerous potential cost benefits.
|Virtually Effortless Backup for VMware Environments |
Backup and disaster recovery strategies protect data from corruption and failures - and ensure that if these types of events occur, companies aren't forced out of business. Data protection becomes even more important in a virtualized server environment, because each physical server serves as a foundation for multiple virtual servers. FalconStor solutions allow you to quickly and efficiently backup virtual machines and retain transactional consistency.
|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.
