Certifies the Intel storage platform for its Continuous Data Protection solution
FalconStor today announced the delivery of enterprise-level continuous data protection (CDP) to Intel’s small /medium business (SMB) customers with FalconStor’s CDP for SMB software and Intel’s storage platform, the Intel® Storage System SSRC212CC. Intel channel partners can implement the FalconStor CDP for SMB software on the SSR212CC to give their customers an increased level of protection and disaster preparedness.
The FalconStor CDP for SMB appliance is a combination of Intel’s SSR212CC, which is purchased separately, and FalconStor’s CDP for SMB software. The solution was developed to help SMBs manage the dramatic growth of data and to remove the difficulty of multiple time- and resource-intensive backups per day, which can grind the IT shop of a smaller company to a halt. In the event of a failure, data can be recovered in minutes with the FalconStor CDP solution rather than hours or days. Because data is backed up continuously, companies can recover to any point in time and data loss is virtually eliminated.
The FalconStor CDP for SMB Solution offers customers the following benefits:
• Data and system recovery in 5 minutes or less
• Continuous backup of data rather than once a day
• File, database, email and system protection in one solution
• Anytime backup without impact to the production environment
• Turnkey solution that installs in less than 10 minutes
• Highly efficient replication for remote offices and offsite disaster recovery
“Smaller companies have the same data challenges as enterprises, without the large IT staff,” said Bernie Wu, vice president of business development, FalconStor. “By partnering with Intel we can offer our robust and enterprise-tested solution to Intel SMB customers in an easy to implement appliance.”
“Solutions using our storage platforms are able to offer our SMB customers technology that has previously been reserved for large enterprises,” said Scott Peiffer, director of Intel Storage System Marketing. “The combination of our storage solution with FalconStor’s CDP software creates a compelling, easy to use CDP appliance for small- to medium-size businesses.”
The combined Intel and FalconStor solution allows companies to recover from total system loss or corruption within minutes. It offers continuous or periodic backup with instant snapshot-based recovery, including granular recovery points to the week, day, hour or minute. With multiple recovery options, administrators can choose to recover block, file, volume, disk or whole systems. The solution is integrated with Microsoft Exchange, including Exchange 2007, SQL Server, Windows, Oracle, Sybase, and IBM Lotus Notes/Domino.
