FALCONSTOR EXTENDS REACH OF FREESTOR WITH NEW SERVICES OFFERING FROM INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS CONSULTING INC.
MELVILLE, N.Y., February 16, 2016 — FalconStor Software ® Inc. (NASDAQ: FALC), a 15-year innovator of software-defined storage solutions, today announced that it has signed Innovative Solutions Consulting Inc. (ISC) to be the first managed service provider (MSP) partner in the United States to sell FreeStor® in 1TB increments. This agreement expands the reach of the company’s converged, hardware-agnostic, software-defined storage and data services platform to support organizations from the SMB community through the enterprise.
Based outside of Kansas City, Missouri, Innovative Solutions Consulting Inc. provides high-quality IT products and services to carrier and enterprise-level organizations.

With more than 25 years of experience working with customers across a wide variety of industries, ISC prides itself on providing its clients with unique custom solutions offering elasticity and scalability to satisfy their future IT needs.
As a long-time reseller and integrator of FalconStor products, Innovative Solutions sees FreeStor as a groundbreaking solution for its customers because it integrates the company’s entire suite of data management tools into a single product for a single, pay-as-you-grow price. ISC CTO, Mardy Martin, believes the flexibility FreeStor offers over competitive point-solutions makes it ideally suited for overcoming limitations of vendor lock-in, forklift upgrades, and cloud-based security issues.
“FreeStor is an incredible opportunity for us to be able to offer a software-defined storage technology that will allow our customers to use a platform that has been recognized globally for its excellence,” said Mardy Martin, CTO of Innovative Solutions Consulting, Inc. “FreeStor gives MSPs the ability to manage the product in their cloud infrastructure or the customer’s environment. It gives us the flexibility to manage customers’ entire environment completely, or just a portion of it, or in being the one they call in a managed services support model. It resolves a real issue within the mid-market around the need to continually invest in additional equipment to maintain and grow their environments. FreeStor eliminates the need for this by extending capabilities on existing hardware and by being the most open software-defined storage platform on the market today.”
FreeStor's horizontal architecture unlocks a new world of storage opportunities, allowing IT managers, MSPs and CSPs to maximize efficiencies and lower costs while taking advantage of the public cloud, hybrid cloud, flash storage and software-defined storage. FalconStor’s groundbreaking Intelligent Abstraction® approach delivers seamless access and unified data services across entire storage infrastructures without having to invest in new technology, or rip and replace existing platforms. Always-on availability and continuity keep businesses running while enabling them to move, synchronize and protect data seamlessly across virtual and physical storage platforms.
“As we continue to expand the footprint of FreeStor throughout the world, we look at our MSP partners as the ideal ambassadors for advancing our message. There is no better way for organizations to gain greater efficiencies, reduced downtime, lower costs and improved simplicity from their IT infrastructures,” said Gary Quinn, FalconStor President, and CEO. “Innovative Solutions has the passion and experience for providing innovative technology to its customer base. We are pleased to partner with them as the first MSP in the U.S. to offer FreeStor in as small as 1TB increments.”
