Protecting Your Virtual and Physical Server Data with 100% Transactional Integrity
In light of today's explosive IT infrastructure growth and complexity, organizations are increasingly adopting virtualization to consolidate IT resources, simplify management, and minimize overhead. Yet in order to fully capitalize on virtualization, they need to treat virtual and physical environments alike, protecting them in a cost-effective manner to ensure data availability and rapid recovery, while addressing new challenges created by resources consolidation. One of the most complex issues facing VMware users is how to protect data and ensure fast recovery without impacting the virtual environment.
FalconStor solutions protect your virtual and physical server data with 100% transactional integrity, delivering the most rapid recovery at both the local and the remote site. With FalconStor software and VMware you can enable a fully virtualized infrastructure while saving money on your VMware deployments. You can:
- Reduce VMware management costs with storage consolidation
- Enable instant recovery of your VMware servers and virtual machines
- Slash your DR cost with DR automation and heterogeneous WAN-optimized replication
- Eliminate redundant data and shrink your backup repository by 95%
FalconStor solutions for VMware environments include:
- Heterogeneous Virtual Storage
FalconStor® Network Storage Server (NSS) is an intelligent storage virtualization and provisioning platform that integrates with VMware Infrastructure to enable critical VMware enterprise features such as VMware VMotion, High Availability (HA), and Distributed Resource Scheduling (DRS). FalconStor NSS provides highly available, centralized storage virtualization for VMware ESX and ESXi servers. This heterogeneous storage virtualization enables complete vendor and storage technology independence while delivering high performance storage area networks (SAN) over both iSCSI and Fibre Channel (FC).
- Zero-impact Unified Backup and DR
Backup operations can be even more challenging in a virtual server environment than in a physical one. FalconStor® Continuous Data Protector (CDP) integrates with VMware infrastructure to deliver seamless, automated, and impact-free backup processes for VMware servers and virtual machines. Furthermore, FalconStor CDP offers instant recovery locally and remotely to enable end-to-end data protection and recovery.
- Heterogeneous Replication for VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager
FalconStor CDP integration with VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM) streamlines disaster recovery (DR) processes and enables cost-effective, highly resilient data protection. WAN-optimized heterogeneous replication technology helps reduce your DR implementation costs by replicating data between different storage environments, and slashes data replication costs by over 80% while accelerating your replication processes.
- VMware View SAN Acceleration
VMware View is helping organizations improve their end user and IT administrator experience while lowering the acquisition and management costs of desktop deployments. FalconStor solutions for VMware View help improve the performance of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environments while reducing storage costs and enhancing virtual desktop protection and recovery.
VMware Customers Discuss the Benefits of FalconStor Data Protection
As an Elite VMware Technology Alliance Partner with several VMware Ready virtual appliances, FalconStor provides solutions that complement and integrate seamlessly with VMware tools, including VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager and VMware View, with outstanding results:
"Experience has shown us that traditional backup is ineffective in virtual environments. Thanks to FalconStor CDP and FalconStor NSS, we can now provide a next-generation DR offering to our customers. This enables us to fulfill our mission of offering virtualized enterprise infrastructure solutions at SMB-level prices."
-- Jim Ludlum, Director of Data Center Operations, 3t Systems
"We turned to virtualization to streamline our operation and reduce IT expenses. With our new DR solution, which includes technology from FalconStor and VMware, we can efficiently back up all 50TB of our data, with the peace of mind that we can restore it at any given time."
-- Michael Caruso, Senior Vice President, Director of IT, Alea North America Insurance Company
"As a loyal VMware shop, we are pleased that FalconStor is a certified VMware partner with an extensive knowledge of the VMware platform. We turned to FalconStor CDP to protect our data for North America as we transitioned from offsite tape storage to disk. Restoration is now lightning-fast, taking seconds rather than hours."
-- Craig Morey, IT Manager, North America, Domino
"Our prior backup system forced us to shut down file servers and email systems for 24 to 48 hours. We chose FalconStor CDP as an alternative, because it could integrate with our VMware and Lotus Notes environment. Within minutes, the software was loaded and we were up and running."
-- Bill Ellis, Manager of IT Infrastructure, Rug Doctor
