"I am excited for the opportunity to bring FalconStor's strong storage offerings to solution providers at a time when green IT solutions are needed more than ever. FalconStor's portfolio meets immediate government service level agreement (SLA) requirements and can be deployed rapidly to support the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative, Continuity of Operations, and Disaster Recovery mandates. Plus, FalconStor's technology has the unique ability to address data migration, storage capacity, and virtualization needs, while reducing floor space requirements, power and cooling by 97 percent. Not only does this help with performance, but also lowers the cost of data center hardware, software, and operations," said Corjay.
