FALCONSTOR PRESENTS THE FREESTOR SDS PLATFORM AT VIRTUALIZATION FIELD DAY 6
Company showcases how FreeStor’s Intelligent Abstraction approach delivers seamless access, unified data services across virtual storage infrastructures
MELVILLE, N.Y., November 16, 2015 — FalconStor Software ® Inc. (NASDAQ: FALC), a 15-year innovator of software-defined storage solutions, today announced that it is providing an in-depth look at its FreeStor®’s hardware-agnostic data services software platform, which enables cloud and managed service providers to deliver solutions to meet demanding requirements to move, store, protect and manage data, at Virtualization Field Day 6, November 18th from 1:00pm to 3:00pm PST. The event is part of the Tech Field Day series that brings together the best independent thought leaders in virtualization to discuss pressing issues and advancements on server and desktop virtualization as well as management technologies.
FalconStor’s 2-hour Virtualization Field Day session will be used to showcase how FreeStor’s groundbreaking Intelligent Abstraction® approach works on a virtualized storage pool abstracted from the underlying physical storage. FreeStor enables users to move both data and applications to and from any storage hardware, essentially flattening the entire storage environment. That makes the process of moving data from one internal storage platform to another, from physical to virtual, from a corporate storage environment to the cloud, completely transparent to the infrastructure. IT staffs use the exact same tools for managing data across their underlying heterogeneous storage infrastructure, on the corporate network and in the cloud. This reduces the complexity and costs of operations, as well as reduces the cost and time of training staff on a variety of tools while significantly improving data security.
“For 15 years we have been in the business of delivering solutions that separate storage services from the hardware platform to provide organizations with the unprecedented control they need to overcome their business-critical data challenges,” said Gary Quinn, FalconStor President and CEO. “And now, with FreeStor, we are able to offer a single software-defined platform that delivers seamless control across legacy, modern and virtual environments. We look forward to participating in Virtualization Field Day 6 to share with delegates how we are able to link front-end applications and servers with back-end storage resources for increased simplicity, minimal downtime, lower costs and pay-as-you-grow pricing.”
Virtualization Field Day is an opportunity for tech companies and independent writers to meet, update, and discuss products in a presentation-and-discussion format. This valuable forum provides engagement, education and hands-on experience for attendees, while vendors gain feedback and expand their presence among bloggers’, freelance writers’ and podcasters’ social media channels.
