Nexsan, FalconStor join to debut new data deduplication product family

Data deduplication product delivering "Speed with Green" to improve operational efficiency

By CBR Staff Writer

Nexsan Technologies, a provider of disk-based storage and FalconStor Software, the provider of TOTALLY Open data protection products, have formed a strategic venture to deliver a joint product, which has resulted in the delivery of an integrated deduplication product family for power-efficient data storage.

Based on Nexsan’s storage systems and the FalconStor File-interface Deduplication System (FDS) software, the new, Nexsan DeDupe SG (Speed with Green) product family will be delivered by Nexsan through its worldwide network of channel partners. The company claimed that

the new offering is a disk-based storage product line which offers data deduplication that has been optimised for high density, power and cost efficiency.

Nexsan DeDupe SG reportedly leverages the green efficiencies inherent to its technology components: data reduction through high-speed deduplication, footprint reduction by utilising space-efficient storage arrays, and energy savings through AutoMAID technology.

Wendy Petty, vice president of North American sales at FalconStor Software, said: This FalconStor/Nexsan joint solution is focused on small-to-mid-sized enterprises but is attractive for all storage users.

FalconStor FDS, the deduplication engine for the Nexsan DeDupe SG family, is said to be a block-level deduplication software product that presents a network share interface as a backup repository, offering customers an option for writing data to disk.

Nexsan DeDupe SG can be deployed in any physical or virtual infrastructure environment, offering file-level access to a central block-level deduplication repository. The product supports all backup software, directly accepts Oracle RMAN, Microsoft SQL and other database dumps, and provides integrated data replication and deduplication, the company said.

Michael McGuire, chief commercial officer of Nexsan, said: The Nexsan DeDupe SG solution solves two very pressing customer needs – reducing capacity costs and improving operating efficiency. With over 20 years of combined experience, FalconStor and Nexsan together continue their traditions of innovation by redefining deduplication and power efficiency and providing our global network of channel partners with a differentiated offering in one of the fastest growing market segments.
