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 the Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) object storage platform.
The end-to-end joint offering delivers massive scalability for deduplicated backup and archival data storage. With best-in-class data deduplication, FalconStor’s Long-Term Retention and Reinstatement solutions, Virtual Tape Library (VTL) and StorSafe deliver dramatically reduced backup and archive data storage cost. In addition, FalconStor includes 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. With an industry-unique physical tape import feature, FalconStor allows the simple migration of legacy data from tape to virtual tape for a cost-effective storage of deduplicated data on HCP object storage systems.
With impressive scalability, HCP object storage can grow from terabytes to exabytes to cost effectively store expanding volumes of backup and archive data. In addition, with robust security, HCP can mitigate data exposure or theft with multitenancy, “write once, read many” and encryption. HCP delivers customers the ability to navigate modern challenges offering support for multiple use cases with visibility and control across all data. A modern digital platform, HCP enables easy management of volumes of data, seamless response to application demands and wide data accessibility, while satisfying compliance requirements.
“We have a longstanding, fruitful relationship with Hitachi Vantara,” said Todd Brooks, FalconStor CEO. “The joint integration between Hitachi Content Platform and our Long-Term Data Retention and Reinstatement solutions will significantly reduce data storage costs, while increasing data portability and accessibility. We look forward to taking our end-to-end solution to market and leveraging the technologies to efficiently help customer manage their long-term data as retention period mandates in compliance, regulatory, legal discovery, and privacy continue to expand.”
“We are excited with the integration of FalconStor’s Long-Term Data Retention and Reinstatement solutions with Hitachi Content Platform,” said Colin Gallagher, vice president, infrastructure solutions product marketing at Hitachi Vantara. “Our collective engineering teams put the end-to-end solution through its paces and we are very pleased with the performance and business value that can be delivered to our enterprise customers.”
