NETWORK STORAGE SERVER (NSS)
The FalconStor® Network Storage Server product enables storage virtualization and optimized efficiency across heterogeneous storage and networks, providing centralized management, consolidation, and continuous, active-active availability of primary data for business continuity.
If you are struggling to provide storage capacity for growing data volumes and increasing numbers of servers and this challenge is further complicated by the proliferation of storage resources from multiple vendors, request a demo of Network Storage Server (NSS) today to learn how you can lower costs, meet data growth needs, and integrate SANs across locations.
FREEDOM OF STORAGE VIRTUALIZATION
FalconStor NSS was designed as a massively scalable, highly available storage virtualization solution. Supporting existing third-party disk arrays, FalconStor NSS eliminates data boundaries and vendor lock-in, providing fast and easy data provisioning, mirroring, migration, snapshots, and replication. With integrated support for Fibre Channel (FC), iSCSI, and FCoE protocols, FalconStor NSS provides the benefits of storage virtualization across heterogeneous networks, with deployment options fitting any environment or budget.
FREEDOM TO MEET DATA GROWTH NEEDS
As data volumes grow along with application-generated data, corresponding storage volumes must grow as well. Additionally, as the proliferation of virtual servers increases, the need to centrally store multiple virtual machine data follows. FalconStor NSS gives customers freedom to meet current and future data volume provisioning needs. Moreover, because virtual machine density is a critical factor in financial and economic justification for hypervisor deployments, 64TB LUN support makes these deployments possible and practical.
FREEDOM TO MOVE DATA WITHOUT DOWNTIME
One of the biggest recurring storage challenges is moving data to new disk arrays as old models become obsolete or reach the end of their lease cycle. Often, costly professional services are required to migrate between devices, particularly if they are devices from different vendors. FalconStor NSS simplifies this process with a simple point-and-click procedure through the use of synchronous data mirroring between disk arrays. There is no application downtime during this process.
FREEDOM OF PHYSICAL & VIRTUAL SERVER PROTECTION
Virtualization technology from providers such as VMware, Microsoft, and Citrix is gaining popularity among businesses for its ability to consolidate servers, maximize space utilization, and streamline management. However, virtual servers require the same level of protection and storage provisioning as physical servers. FalconStor NSS provides the same comprehensive capabilities to physical and virtual servers alike.
HOW NETWORK STORAGE SERVER (NSS) WORKS TO ENSURE BUSINESS CONTINUITY
Increase disk capacity utilization to reduce costs through thin provisioning technology, FalconStor NSS optimizes capacity utilization, using less physical storage than what is represented by the virtual disks. The result is maximized disk utilization efficiency and reduced storage costs. Learn More
Enable application-consistent snapshots for the most popular business applications. Up to 1,000 snapshots are available per protection volume, for the most flexible and comprehensive up-to-the-moment recovery points. Learn More
Deliver WAN-optimized replication with MicroScan™ Technology. FalconStor NSS enables efficient and robust replication between sites, leveraging storage from any vendor at any office location. Built-in WAN-optimized replication with compression provides improved bandwidth efficiency and cost reduction, and encryption (at rest or in-flight) enables optimal data security. Learn More
Automate disaster recovery for fast, simple recovery with RecoverTrac™. FalconStor’s unique tool, RecoverTrac™ automates complex and error-prone manual disaster recovery operations, allowing all associated applications and services to be brought back online remotely as quickly as possible. In addition, RecoverTrac technology facilitates nonintrusive disaster recovery testing, allowing organizations to identify potential recovery issues before actual disasters occur. Learn More
Integrate with tape and accelerate tape backup by automatically mounting snapshots from FalconStor NSS to a backup server. This allows you to back up data to physical tape or to a virtual tape library using FalconStor® Virtual Tape Library. Because backup occurs directly from storage to the tape, applications are not impacted. Learn More
Deploy in high-availability IO-optimized clusters for flexible HA functionality, SAN acceleration, and flash-optimized performance capable of providing over one million IOPS with very low latency. Learn More
