New FalconStor StorSafe uses containers to archive backups

Carol Sliwa, Senior News Write - SearchDataBackup.TechTarget.com

FalconStor's new StorSafe product combines container, erasure coding and data reduction to archive backups and make them portable across cloud sites.

FalconStor Software took a novel approach with its new StorSafe long-term archive product that can containerize backups and let customers move them across on-premises systems and public cloud object storage.

FalconStor uses standard software container technology to separate the data from the underlying storage components and enable users to migrate their StorSafe archives as systems become outdated or cloud vendors offer new options.

Marc Staimer, president of Dragon Slayer Consulting, said StorSafe's container technology would allow customers to move their oldest backups to cheaper storage.

"Data movement is the biggest bugaboo in the data center," Staimer said. "Usually, once you send something, that's where it is forever. This makes it easy to move that data from one storage medium to another."

Tape alternative

Mike Matchett, principal IT industry analyst/principal consultant and technology strategist at Small World Big Data, said organizations could migrate data protection from tape and other backup and archive storage targets to the StorSafe virtual storage containers. They could then distribute and protect the containers across clouds rather than shipping physical tapes offsite, he said.
