FalconStor StorSafeTM, Linux-based containers, tape migration, and business continuity solutions to offer remote management and unlimited expansion with AC&NC JetStorTM on-premise data storage

FalconStor Software, Inc. (OTCQB: FALC), the software-defined data preservation company, today announced the successful integration between FalconStor’s long-term data retention and reinstatement solutions and AC&NC, a leader in on-premise data storage. The joint offering delivers turnkey solutions to customers, providing massive scalability and performance for deduplicated backup and archival data storage. The integration between JetStor and FalconStor systems ensures that information is safely preserved, and business and regulatory mandates are easily met.

With best-in-class data deduplication, FalconStor’s solutions delivers dramatically reduced backup and archive data storage cost when deployed with AC&NC solutions. In addition, they include 40 TB/hour data ingest performance and a zero-trust security model, which allows customers to own and manage their encryption keys. FalconStor’s heterogeneous architecture is compatible with nearly all backup solutions and integrates seamlessly with a customer’s existing backup and archive environments, including those for IBM I ProtectTIER that is end-of-life in October. Thanks to a physical tape import feature, FalconStor allows the simple tape migration of legacy data from tape to virtual tape for cost-effective storage of deduplicated data onto AC&NC systems.

The JetStor 816F storage system when coupled with FalconStor’s StorSafeTM provides mid-sized organizations with persistent, long-term, archive storage that is secure and cost-effective. The JetStor 824FX array offers a robust storage repository for enterprise environments that scales to multiple petabytes of capacity.

“We welcome AC&NC as a valued technology partner,” said Carter McCrary, FalconStor CRO. “The joint integration between AC&NC JetStor hardware and StorSafe, our long-term data retention and reinstatement solution, and StorGuardTM, our business continuity solution, will significantly reduce data storage costs, while increasing data portability and accessibility. It leverages both companies’ technologies to efficiently help customers manage their business continuity and long-term data requirements as retention period mandates in compliance, regulatory, legal discovery, and privacy continue to expand.”

“The JetStor 816F FC SAN and JetStor 824FX platforms are designed for enterprises of all sizes that demand storage that is robust, blazingly fast, and yet economical,” said Gene Leyzarovich, president of AC&NC. “AC&NC’s arrays have always been popular for their reliability and performance, but by working with FalconStor, we offer unequalled simplicity and content that is rapidly available via remote access, which is critical for today’s work environments.”
