MELVILLE, N.Y., Feb. 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FalconStor Software, Inc. (Nasdaq:FALC), a market leader in disk-based data protection, was named a finalist in the backup and disaster recovery software and services category of the Storage Magazine-SearchStorage.com 2012 Product of the Year awards. FalconStor's RecoverTrac™ disaster recovery (DR) automation tool stands out from the competition by performing lightning-fast recovery of multiple machines, failover and failback between dissimilar hardware and non-disruptive disaster recovery testing. The RecoverTrac solution also was honored earlier in 2012 as a Best of VMworld 2012 award gold winner in the business continuity and data protection category.
"Given recent natural disasters and devastating storms, it is not surprising that automated disaster recovery is a hot topic – and that RecoverTrac was selected as one of the 12 product finalists for Product of the Year," said Gary Quinn, vice president of sales and marketing for FalconStor Software. "By automating system recovery, RecoverTrac technology eliminates time-consuming manual processes for bringing IT services back on line and gives our customers peace of mind by minimizing costly downtime."
A standard feature of the FalconStor® Continuous Data Protector (CDP) and FalconStor® Network Storage Server (NSS) data protection solutions, the RecoverTrac DR automation tool quickly recovers not only data but complete IT services. The solution integrates seamlessly with VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V, supports failover and failback between any combination of physical and virtual servers and between dissimilar hardware, permits non-disruptive DR testing and allocates virtual machines on demand.
The Storage Magazine-SearchStorage.com editorial staff – in conjunction with a team of users, industry experts, analysts and consultants – judged 52 enterprise data storage systems in six different categories, using the criteria of demonstrated technical innovation, solid value, practical functionality, performance, ease of integration into existing data storage infrastructures, ease of use and manageability. The backup and DR software and services category covers backup and recovery software, cloud backup and recovery services, disaster recovery, snapshot and replication, electronic vaulting and archivers.
