VMware Inc. issued its VMware Ready compatibility designation to FalconStor Software Inc.’s Network Storage Server this week, which FalconStor says shows that their product is ready for deployment in customer environments.
“Now our customers can enjoy the full benefit of offloading resource-intensive functions to the storage infrastructure and integrating VMware vSphere 5 into virtual storage environments optimized for backup and DR using any combination of storage and physical servers,” Fadi Albatal, vice president of marketing for FalconStor, said in a statement.
FalconStor says the NSS provides storage virtualization and business continuity which supports third-party disk arrays for data provisioning, WAN-optimization and other tasks. The VMware Ready program is part of a program for about 2,000 VMare technology partners which provides those companies with technical and marketing services. FalconStor’s NSS will also be available for sale in VMware’s partner product catalog.
