NETWORK WORLD ASIA NAMES FALCONSTOR CDP BEST BACKUP AND RECOVERY SOLUTION IN INFORMATION MANAGEMENT AWARDS 2013
MELVILLE, N.Y., June 18, 2013 — FalconStor Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: FALC), a market leader in disk-based data protection, today announced that its FalconStor® Continuous Data Protector (CDP) solution has been recognized as the winner in the Backup and Recovery Solution category of the Network World Asia Information Management Awards. Presented to FalconStor executives at an award ceremony on June 5 in Singapore, the award distinguishes the FalconStor CDP solution for its comprehensive disk-based data protection capabilities and its RecoverTrac™ automated disaster recovery (DR) technology.
The Network World Asia (NWA) Information Management Awards recognize Asia’s business leaders who have made significant technology advances in the areas of information security, storage and data management. The editors at Networks Asia, Security Asia and Storage Asia researched and decided on the nomination of two to three finalists for each of the 30 categories. One hundred chief information officers (CIOs) and IT professionals were then invited to select the award winners and runners-up.
“We wish to congratulate FalconStor for developing a leading backup-and-recovery solution recognized by our editors and the 100 CIOs we surveyed as the winner in this category,” said Victor Ng, South-East Asia bureau chief of Network World Asia. “The FalconStor CDP solution was voted best for addressing the limitations of legacy backup systems with lightning fast disk-based recovery and sophisticated yet simple-to-use DR automation.”
“The NWA Information Management Award highlights the importance of backup and recovery modernization,” said Suresh Nair, general manager and vice president of sales and marketing for FalconStor in Asia Pacific. “Legacy systems that require a lengthy backup window and rely on tape-based recovery no longer meet the needs of the modern enterprise. The FalconStor CDP solution helps businesses eliminate the backup window, stage multiple points of immediate recovery and automate DR testing and execution for peace of mind.”
FalconStor CDP is a disk-based backup and recovery solution that provides comprehensive data protection functions such as mirroring, snapshots, journaling, remote replication, and automated disaster recovery from an application service perspective, allowing IT administrators to meet business protection demands in heterogeneous environments.
