HAMBURG, Germany, June 23 -- FalconStor Software, Inc., the provider of TOTALLY Open data protection solutions, and STORDIS GmbH, the European distributor for high performance computing, headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany, today announced a partnership to create an InfiniBand-based storage appliance for the high performance computing market. The appliance, running FalconStor Network Storage Server (NSS), will be demonstrated for the first time in STORDIS and FalconStor's shared booth at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC), Europe's leading conference and exhibition for high performance computing, networking and storage.
The new appliance is based on high quality InfiniBand Director switches, which enable high performance applications to run on distributed server, storage and network resources. Multiple Director switches can be interconnected to form very large, high-performance clusters and grids that can grow into the thousands of nodes with "pay as you grow" scalability and bandwidth. Customers can leverage FalconStor NSS with these clusters and grids to implement an ultra-high performance storage network with storage virtualization, provisioning and management across multiple disk arrays, operating at speeds far in excess of anything achievable with Fibre Channel, and at significantly lower costs.
"FalconStor solutions in conjunction with InfiniBand-based switching can reduce the overall complexities and costs associated with a dynamic storage environment, providing customers with new levels of performance at a price point they might have believed it impossible to make," said Guillaume Imberti, FalconStor president and general manager EMEA Operations.
"We expect this innovative combination to be very attractive to our mutual customers, many of whom demand the fastest possible performance from their storage environments in order to give themselves the greatest possible competitive advantage in their own business sector," said Alexander Jeffries, managing director of STORDIS.
