FalconStor disk-based solution wins NWA award

Continuous Data Protector takes out ‘backup and recovery solution’ category

Disk-based data protection software vendor, FalconStor Software, has been named winner of the ‘backup and recovery solution’ category of the Network World Asia (NWA) Information Management Awards.

The NWA awards credit companies that have made significant technology advances in information security, storage, and data management.

The vendor was recognised for its Continuous Data Protector (CDP) product, a disk-based solution which entails backup, remote replication, and rapid disaster recovery (DR) with the goal of enabling continuous data availability. The solution operates in UNIX, Linux, and Microsoft Windows environments, and protects data for Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, and other business applications.

“Legacy systems that require a lengthy backup window and rely on tape-based recovery no longer meet the needs of the modern enterprise,” FalconStor Asia-Pacific (APAC) sales and marketing vice-president, Suresh Nair, said.

“The FalconStor CDP solution helps businesses eliminate the backup window, stage multiple points of immediate recovery and automate DR testing and execution.”

The award, received earlier this month in Singapore, credits FalconStor CDP for its disk-based data protection capabilities and its RecoverTrac automated DR technology.

“The FalconStor CDP solution was voted best for addressing the limitations of legacy backup systems with lightning fast disk-based recovery and sophisticated yet simple-to-use DR automation,” NWA South-East Asia bureau chief.
