FalconStor CDP ensures recovery from any type of data loss
FalconStor® Continuous Data Protector (CDP) is a disk-based continuous data protection solution that provides comprehensive backup, remote replication, and rapid disaster recovery (DR) to enable continuous data availability. It works in UNIX, Linux, and Microsoft Windows environments and protects application-specific data for Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, and other business applications, ensuring high performance and stability for even the most complex business environments. Capabilities include:
- Automating disaster recovery processes via RecoverTrac™ technology
- Instantly restoring files, emails, applications, and systems for the best recovery time objectives (RTO)
- Reducing recovery point objectives (RPO) to mere seconds
- Up to 1,000 snapshots per LUN, allowing you to set as many recovery points as needed
Performance and specifications
FalconStor CDP provides continuous data protection for growing data volumes, supporting LUN sizes of up to 64TB. An advanced multi-threaded architecture enables simultaneous compute operations (replication, compression, encryption) for the highest replication performance levels.
Patented MicroScan™ technology minimizes the amount of data transmitted by eliminating redundancy at the application and file system layers. MicroScan technology maps, identifies, and transmits only unique disk drive sectors, reducing network traffic and bandwidth requirements by as much as 90%.
FalconStor CDP benefits mixed server environments
FalconStor CDP brings technical innovation and tangible business benefits to physical and virtual server environments for resilient IT operations. Using a wealth of sophisticated backup and recovery technologies—including application integration, physical-to-virtual (P2V) recovery, and WAN-optimized replication — this data protection solution enables you to quickly and efficiently reclaim emails, files, user data, applications, and databases:
- Recover lost files in as little as 2 minutes
- Bring back enterprise-wide email in less than 3 minutes
- Restore entire systems in under 10 minutes
- RTO from hours to minutes.
Supports direct attached/internal storage, networked storage over iSCSI or Fibre Channel (FC), and physical and virtual server environments. Supports major enterprise operating systems, including Microsoft Windows, Linux, Solaris, AIX, and HP-UX.
RecoverTrac™ Technology: Automated DR
FalconStor CDP automates the complex tasks of protecting and recovering data and resuming business operations through RecoverTrac technology. The comprehensive nature of the RecoverTrac tool includes support for physical and virtual servers, any type of storage or networking, and the ability to convert physical servers into virtual servers
Non-disruptive DR Testing
Through RecoveryTrac technology, FalconStor CDP allows non-disruptive testing of recovery jobs, to ensure accuracy and confidence in business recovery operations before an actual failure occurs.
Flexible Data Capture to Improve RPO
Continuous or periodic (point-in-time) protection helps you meet or exceed all RPO requirements. Data journaling protects information at a per-write level of granularity, letting you recover everything up to the last bit of information written before a service outage. Periodic snapshots, up to 1,000 per volume, give you numerous bootable recovery images based on a pre-set schedule, such as every hour or every several hours, delivering far more recovery points than typical nightly tape backups. Journaling and snapshots can be used on the same volume. Advanced scheduling, retention, disposal, and reclamation optimize snapshot capacity management.
Flexible Deployment Model
Use host-based agents or SAN fabric-based devices.
FalconStor CDP stores data in its native format, not in a proprietary backup format. This allows you to quickly mount the data via any appropriate host server, providing faster, more flexible recovery.
Any-to-any Data Replication with Compression
Replicate data from any vendor’s primary storage environment to any other storage device. Use any disk or storage protocol that meets your price/performance requirements without vendor lock-in.
WAN-optimized Replication and Encryption
Patented disk scanning and compression technology reduces replication bandwidth utilization by as much as 90%. This lets you significantly cut back on WAN capacity and costs, protecting more applications with less bandwidth. Multi-threaded architecture delivers 300% performance improvements for replication, compression, and encryption.
Maximizes disk utilization, reduces storage costs and power consumption.
Application-aware snapshot agents, including Microsoft Windows-certified agents, ensure 100% transactional integrity. Support is provided for major enterprise messaging and database platforms, including Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL, Oracle, Lotus
Notes/Domino, Sybase, Informix, DB2, GroupWise, Progress, and SAP. FalconStor CDP also supports clustering software, including Microsoft Windows clustering and Oracle RAC.
Remote Boot Support
In the event of primary storage failure, you can access FalconStor CDP storage to restart physical servers via FC/iSCSI HBA booting.
Microsoft Windows-specific Management Agents
A DiskSafe™ agent protects DAS and SAN for Microsoft Windows-based application servers. You can configure and manage protection directly from within the Microsoft Windows server, including setting snapshot schedules and mounting snapshot images through an easy-to-use GUI.
Central Client Manager
A Central Client Manager lets you configure and monitor protected servers from a single point of view. Creating snapshot schedules per groups of servers or applications reduces management time and helps ensure consistent protection.
Physical-to-virtual (P2V) Recovery
You can use FalconStor CDP snapshot images to quickly restart failed physical systems as virtual machines.
Large LUN Support
The FalconStor CDP solution supports individual LUNs up to 64TB in size, ccommodating data growth and server virtualization needs.
When tape is required, FalconStor CDP technology enables host free, SAN based backup that eliminates the need for backup agents and imposes no impact on your production environment. Backup speed increases dramatically, by as much as 1000% (moving f-rom a 1Gb LAN-based backup to a 10Gb SAN backup)
