IPStor-Powered Appliances Leverage the Development and Manufacturing

Proficiency of Ciara with the Backup/Recovery Expertise of FalconStor

FalconStor Software, Inc. (Nasdaq:FALC), a leading developer of network storage infrastructure software solutions, and Ciara Technologies, Canada's largest manufacturer of Intel-based computers, today announced a collaboration to deliver turnkey solutions, including an IPStor Enterprise appliance, as well as special purpose Virtual Tape Library (VTL), iSCSI Storage Server, and NAS Server appliances, all powered by IPStor.

"FalconStor's IPStor software solution is very intelligent with its storage services, and we'd like to leverage that technology to the fullest since it fits naturally with our appliance development and manufacturing services," said Ciara Technologies President Robert Ahdoot. "We've had a successful track record of IPStor deployments, and see the VTL and iSCSI appliances powered by IPStor as a great opportunity to offer data center managers a cost effective solution for business continuity."

Leveraging industry standard disk and IP or Fibre Channel SAN, the VTL Appliance accelerates the backup and restoration of data with minimal operating cost and quickest return on investment, while the iSCSI Storage Server Appliance, running on Linux, is a cost effective, turnkey solution facilitating the consolidation and management of storage using the industry standard iSCSI protocol.

"FalconStor and Ciara Technologies are addressing the business need for efficient and cost-effective storage solutions that manage data across enterprises and make it available quickly on demand," said Mira Sharma, FalconStor country manager for Canada. "This alliance offers corporations fully integrated, easy to deploy appliances that reduce total cost of ownership, without surrendering Enterprise level functionality."

The IPStor Enterprise Appliance provides network storage services to help protect data against hardware failures, software failures, and virus attacks. IPStor supports the SCSI, iSCSI, and Fibre Channel protocols, and its enterprise-class storage services include Active-Active Failover, Synchronous Mirroring, Remote Replication, Zero-Impact Backup Enabler, DynaPath for dynamic multi-pathing, and TimeMark for scheduled disk-based change-journaling and instant data recovery.
