Network Storage Server for storage virtualization and provisioning across iSCSI, FC, and Infiniband

FalconStor’s network storage server (NSS) software integrates its TimeMark snapshot technology and application- and database-specific Agents to provide a unified data storage management console that connects across virtual storage and physical storage boundaries, regardless of various vendor barriers, as well as across various storage protocols like iSCSI, Fibre Channel, or Infiniband.

Providing complete transactional integrity, FalconStor NSS includes application-aware snapshots, enabling instant recovery to known points in time. In addition, these snapshots can be replicated via IP for remote replication, enabling disaster recovery and DR automation.

Thin Provisioning

To maximize disk utilization, FalconStor NSS provides thin provisioning functionality. For various applications and servers, storage volumes for applications can be made much bigger in virtual volumes, and physical disk space can be allocated as needed. This way, disk storage requests for storage space can be accommodated without having to source a corresponding amount of physical disk storage resources.

Simultaneous protection of virtual VMware and server and physical servers

FalconStor NSS allows servers virtualized with popular virtualization software to receive the same level of data protection as physical servers. Both can be managed from a single, unified interface, and can be protected to minimize data loss and downtime should hardware or software fail. In addition, FalconStor NSS allows physical server snapshot to be mounted on servers virtualized with software like VMware for recovery or testing purposes.
