StorageTek, FalconStor in Appliance Deal

StorageTek, FalconStor in Appliance Deal

StorageTek and FalconStor plan to work together to develop a StorageTek-branded replication and mirroring appliance that can work with heterogeneous storage systems.

Targeted at mid-sized companies, the appliance will be based on FalconStor's IPStor software.

FalconStor executives say that the 2U Linux-based appliance will be initially geared towards disaster recovery and data protection and be able to handle tasks such as remote replication and snapshotting and real-time synchronous and asynchronous mirroring.

StorageTek said the appliance would leverage the capabilities of its B and D series disk arrays.

The widget is expected to be priced between $40,000-$60,000 and ship in August. StorageTek plans to sell it through its direct and indirect channels.

The appliance is part of a broad alliance under which StorageTek will also resell FalconStor's IPStor software.

StorageTek's Professional Services team also plans to leverage IPStor when it takes up enterprise data migration projects.
