Flas accelerated Storage

Solid state storage uses semiconductor devices to store data rather than spinning media. The advantages are clear: superior performance, lower latency, and reduced power consumption.

The reduced cost of solid state flash devices has enabled AMS and our partners to design products that utilize flash as a caching mechanism for SAS and SATA drives, delivering enterprise performance in an affordable package.

  • FalconStor NSS

    Virtual storage with backup and DR FalconStor Network Storage Server (NSS) solution offers powerful storage provisioning and virtualization, as well as a full set of application-aware data protection services, including:
    • Real-time synchronous mirroring
    • Volume snapshots
    • Automated disaster recovery via RecoverTrac technology
    • WAN-optimized replication across multiple platforms.

    Multiple deployment options, including high-availability (HA) SAN

    FalconStor NSS can be deployed as enterprise-level software, as storage appliances, as gateway appliances that virtualize existing storage, or as virtual appliances for VMware environments, including enabling iSCSI SAN services on the direct-attached storage (DAS) resources of VMware ESX Server. FalconStor Network Storage Server appliances can be configured for high availability. In addition, solid-state drive (SSD) models offer storage area network (SAN) acceleration.

    Efficient storage provisioning

    By virtualizing storage on any disk array, FalconStor NSS lets you pool and tier disk assets. Offering advanced services such as thin provisioning, FalconStor NSS simplifies provisioning, reduces allocation errors, maximizes resource utilization, and accelerates the storage infrastructure.

    Industry-recognized SAN acceleration

    FalconStor combines its Network Storage Server (NSS) gateway and management software with a Violin 1010 Flash Memory Appliance (or any other solid-state drive) to create the FalconStor NSS SAN Accelerator. The solid-state storage is used for caching, while FalconStor SafeCache™ and HotZone® technologies speed up data writes and reads. The FalconStor NSS SAN Accelerator solution was named a 2010 Product of the Year finalist by Storage Magazine and SearchStorage.com.

    Award-winning virtualization in VMware environments

    Integrating tightly with VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager, FalconStor NSS offers intelligent storage virtualization optimized for VMware technology. For its breadth of functionality, as well as for its performance, the product was honored with the Silver award in the "Backup and Disaster Recovery Software and Services" category of Storage Magazine's 2008 Products of the Year.

  • Nimble Storage- thinks that storing, accessing, and protecting your data shouldn't be so complicated and expensive. So they developed breakthrough architecture that combines flash memory with high-capacity disk to converge storage, backup, and DR for the first time. The bottom line: high-performance iSCSI storage, instant backups and restores, and full-featured DR - all in one easy-to-manage solution for 60% less than you're paying now. Nimble Storage CS-Series iSCSI arrays combine flash memory with low-cost, high-capacity drives, eliminating the need for expensive, high-RPM drives for primary storage and separate disk-based backup solutions.
