FalconStor: Automating Heterogeneous Disaster Recovery
Melville, N.Y.-based FalconStor Software used VMworld to introduce its FalconStor RecoverTrac 2.5, an application that automates recovery of complete IT services in heterogeneous data center environments. A standard feature of FalconStor Continuous Data Protector (CDP) and FalconStor Network Storage Server (NSS) solutions, the FalconStor RecoverTrac disaster recovery automation tool lets companies protect critical business services and recover these services quickly.
The new version 2.5 increases performance by recovering multiple machines simultaneously, and it works with VMware and Microsoft's Hyper-V to allow failover and failback between any combination of physical and virtual servers and between dissimilar hardware. It also now supports VMware vSphere 5 and VMware cluster, and it includes a push-button disaster recovery test.
