Introduction

The FalconStor® Network Storage Server (NSS) is a scalable, highly available solution that enables storage virtualization and business continuity in heterogeneous environments. Supporting existing third-party disk arrays, FalconStor NSS eliminates storage boundaries and vendor lock-in, providing fast and easy data provisioning, mirroring, migration, snapshots, and WAN-optimized replication. With integrated support for Fibre Channel (FC), iSCSI, and FCoE protocols, FalconStor NSS provides the benefits of storage virtualization across any IT environment or budget.

  • Optimize I/O performance: READ, WRITE, and replication
  • Automated disaster recovery (DR) via RecoverTrac™ technology
  • Migrate and move data across storage platforms without downtime

FalconStor NSS lets you consolidate and tier disk assets. Through advanced services such as thin provisioning, FalconStor NSS maximizes resource utilization to help you get the most ROI from storage investments. With thin provisioning, physical capacity is automatically allocated only when needed. This can be applied to primary storage, replica storage, and mirrored storage.

FALCONSTOR NSS BENEFITS VMWARE ENVIRONMENTS

FalconStor NSS integrates with and enhances VMware technologies such as VMware vSphere, VMware View, and VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager. Support of VMware vStorage APIs for Array Integration (VAAI) extends VMware integration into any storage environment and optimizes VMware deployments with comprehensive, flexible storage virtualization and data protection functionality. Preconfigured FalconStor NSS Virtual Appliances enable iSCSI SAN services on the direct-attached storage (DAS) resources of VMware ESX Server for affordable, advanced data protection.

  • Certified for VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager
  • Heterogeneous support lets you use SANs of different vendors, reducing VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager deployment constraints and cost
  • Enable advanced VMware features such as vMotion, High Availability, and Distributed Resource Scheduler
  • VMware VAAI support enables storage vMotion and data mobility across different storage protocols and vendor arrays.

FLEXIBLE DEPLOYMENT OPTIONS

FalconStor NSS provides enterprise-level storage virtualization technology for organizations of all sizes. It is available in the form of storage appliances, gateway appliances that virtualize existing storage, and small-footprint virtual appliances for VMware environments, as well as HA appliances. In addition, solid-state drive (SSD) models offer storage area network (SAN) acceleration.

  • FalconStor NSS Virtual Appliance: for ROBO environments leveraging VMware technology
  • FalconStor NSS Appliances:all-in-one appliances for SMB and ROBO environments
