FalconStor: Improving Storage Efficiency In VDI Environments
Melville, N.Y.-based FalconStor Software is showing its new Network Storage Server (NSS) SAN Accelerator for VMware View, which uses solid-state disk (SSD) storage to increase the performance of VMware virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments while providing integrated, multitier data protection. It backs up and recovers the entire VMware VDI environment and for each virtual desktop while enabling integrated self-service file recovery for individual virtual desktop users. FalconStor said the NSS SAN Accelerator for VMware View increases VDI management efficiency throughout the virtual desktop life cycle, including virtual desktop creation, booting, login, operation, logoff, patch/update and security management. It also uses snapshots, thin clones, replication and file-level protection for a three-tier data protection service.
