FalconStor's RecoverTrac 2.5 DR Automation Tool Ensures Rapid
Recovery of IT Services in the Event of Data Center Failure
Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: FALC), a market leader in disk-based data
protection, today announced the latest version of RecoverTrac?
technology, offering customers fully automated recovery of complete
IT services in any data center environment. Key enhancements in
RecoverTrac 2.5 enable lightning-fast recovery in mixed physical and
virtual environments, failover and failback between dissimilar hardware,
and non-disruptive disaster recovery (DR) testing. As a standard feature
of FalconStor® Continuous Data Protector (CDP) and FalconStor® Network
Storage Server (NSS) solutions, the RecoverTrac DR automation tool
allows customers to protect critical business services and recover these
services in minutes.
"At the core of every business lies its most valuable asset, data, which
must be protected against human error, equipment failure and natural
disasters, while at the same time always being available," said Darrell
Riddle, senior director of product marketing at FalconStor Software.
"Every minute companies focus on recovering data and critical IT
services is time lost running the business. By automatically recovering
multiple services and systems, or even an entire site, in minutes rather
than hours or days, RecoverTrac 2.5 gives IT administrators something
they aren't getting enough of - sleep."
IT managers need to manage and protect mixed environments composed of
physical and virtual assets and equipment from multiple vendors.
RecoverTrac 2.5 technology is optimized for today's heterogeneous data
centers with enhancements that increase the speed and flexibility of DR

ability to recover multiple machines simultaneously return
organizations to full productivity in minutes.

support for hardware templates enables failover and failback between
any combination of physical and virtual servers and between dissimilar
Greater VMware support: VMware vSphere 5 and VMware cluster
support enables load balancing and high-availability configurations.
Automated push-button DR rehearsal: Allows busy IT managers to
test and refine recovery processes on a regular basis without
disrupting business operations.
"IT resilience and data protection are key elements to a company's
success," said John Morency, research vice president at Gartner.
"Businesses must be able to recover quickly following a disruptive
event, whether it is a lost file or the failure of a complex application
or service. In failing to execute well-tested disaster recovery,
companies face the prospect of significant downtime, diminished employee
productivity, and lost revenue. Failover/failback automation ensures
that IT managers can deploy and test DR processes far more efficiently
and effectively, resulting in a significant reduction of the business
impact of planned downtime."
"As a provider of business continuity services to many different
customers, we need a flexible, automated disaster recovery system that
will work with any physical or virtual environment," said Shawn Mears,
senior architect for Hudson Technology, a managed service provider in
Toronto. "We use FalconStor's RecoverTrac technology to set up, automate
and test the DR systems we design for our customers, giving them peace
