FalconStor Offers Free Migration to IBM ProtecTIER Customers
FalconStor Software®, Inc. (Nasdaq: FALC), a market leader in data protection and migration, today announces a free migration program for IBM® ProtecTIER® customers, offering a no charge, like-for-like license swap. Due to the interoperable, hardware-agnostic nature of FalconStor technology, this migration program allows customers to reuse their existing hardware.
Customers migrating to FalconStor's solution will experience complete business continuity, as automatic tape caching functions allow backups and recoveries to continue uninterrupted as data or tapes are migrated in the background.
"We're proud to offer IBM ProtecTIER customers the freedom to migrate their data at no cost and with no interruptions," said Gary Quinn, President and CEO, FalconStor Software. "In today's business world, data is a critical asset whose value cannot be underestimated. It's essential that data be managed and protected properly. For FalconStor customers, that means having the industry's most flexible, cost-effective solutions without the worry of vendor lock-in or data loss and downtime. We're confident that our new customers will benefit from the improved performance and freedom offered by FalconStor."
FalconStor's free migration program applies to like-for-like license swaps with equal capacity. New customers will be migrated onto the recently launched FalconStor Optimized Backup & Deduplication 8.0™. This solution platform allows users to manage both block and file backup and deduplication on a single node, significantly reducing the backup window and shrinking the storage footprint. New customers are required to sign a three-year maintenance agreement and can purchase additional capacity and/or data management solutions at their discretion.
Availability and pricing
FalconStor's free migration program is available immediately through December 31, 2014. Migration support is also available at FalconStor's standard rates, including basic installation and integration services, planning, design, and optimization services.
