The perfect storage virtualization solution using FalconStor NSS + PRIMERGY server + ETERNUS DX storage
The management of existing storage devices can be tedious and time-consuming. Storage virtualization enables the pooling of physical storage from multiple network storage devices into what appears to be a single storage device, managed from a central console. This greatly helps storage administrators perform expansion, backup, archiving, and recovery tasks more easily, and in less time, by disguising the actual complexity of the SAN.
In the development of virtualized environments and private clouds, flexibility of data migration, and growth capabilities are more important than ever.
To address this, Fujitsu has introduced its Storage Virtualization Solution. Based on a combination of FalconStor® Network Storage Server (NSS) technology, ETERNUS DX and PRIMERGY servers, it helps you reduce management costs, minimize system downtime, ensure data protection, and most importantly, deliver service level flexibility in a cloud service environment.
Storage virtualization with FalconStor NSS
FalconStor NSS is a scalable high availability solution that enables storage virtualization and business continuity in heterogeneous environments. Supporting existing third-party disk arrays, FalconStor NSS eliminates storage boundaries and vendor lock-in, providing you with fast and easy data provisioning, mirroring, migration, snapshots, and WAN-optimized replication. With integrated support for Fibre Channel (FC) and iSCSI protocols, FalconStor NSS enables the benefits of storage virtualization across any IT environment and budget.
- Optimize I/O performance: READ, WRITE, and replication
