Backup and Deduplication Servers

FALCONSTOR BACKUP AND DEDUPLICATION SERVERS: OPERATING SYSTEMS, TAPE DEVICES, AND BACKUP SOFTWARE

All devices on this Certification Matrix have been certified in our Interoperability Lab or within our partners’ labs. FalconStor tests as many possible operating system, hardware, and software combinations as possible. Even with this extensive testing, the exact versions at your site may differ slightly from those tested. Please contact a FalconStor Certified Reseller or your local FalconStor account team if you have any questions.

FalconStor emulates physical tape libraries and tape drives for backup servers. It also supports a majority of the leading physical tape libraries for tape import/export via Fibre Channel. You can import data from or export data to any certified physical tape library or any library with a certified tape drive. Certified devices are listed below; some devices are only certified for tape import/export.

For information about devices and software certified with previous FalconStor product versions, check our Archived Certified Operating Systems, Tape Devices, and Backup Software page.
