The FalconStor Network Storage Server (NSS) enables storage virtualization and business continuity in heterogeneous environments.

In a new worldwide agreement with disk-based data protection solutions provider, FalconStor Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: FALC), Dell Services (NASDAQ: DELL) will deploy FalconStor's Network Storage Server (NSS) technology to enable a data migration service for its customers.

The FalconStor Network Storage Server (NSS) is a scalable, highly available solution that enables storage virtualization and business continuity in heterogeneous 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.

"With this technology sharing agreement, FalconStor is helping Dell meet a customer need for efficiently expanding and upgrading legacy storage installations without disrupting operations,” said Bernie Wu, vice president of business development for FalconStor.

FalconStor NSS also provides integrated support for Fibre Channel (FC), iSCSI, and FCoE protocols, FalconStor NSS provides the benefits of storage virtualization and management across any IT environment or budget. It supports existing third-party disk arrays and eliminates storage boundaries and vendor lock-in, providing fast and easy data provisioning, mirroring, migration, snapshots, and WAN-optimized replication.
