<p>FalconStor continues to advance its product portfolio with new features, while expanding efforts to make its network storage solutions compatible with current and cutting edge technology. FalconStor has also continued to receive industry recognition for its channel efforts and products.</p>
<p>• New versions of FalconStor's IPStor®, VirtualTape Library, and iSCSI Storage Server solutions were introduced with a "Continuous Data Protection" strategy through the additions of a continuous data replication option and continuous disk backup service. The new version of FalconStor's VTL provides users the granularity and frequency of data protection, addressing both the backup and recovery window issues in one unified solution/platform, while the new version of FalconStor's iSCSI Storage Server Solution is available for all Microsoft Windows Server 2003 platforms.</p>
<p>• FalconStor expanded its support for many technologies, including Intel® processors based on 64-bit extension technology for its software solutions on both Windows and Linux operating systems, the Microsoft iSCSI Software Initiator version 2.0, and Novell's SUSE® LINUX Enterprise Server 9.</p>
<p>• FalconStor's VTL solution completed interoperability testing and has been qualified with major backup software providers, including BakBone Software (NetVaultTM), CommVault (GalaxyTM), Computer Associates (BrightStor® ARCserveTM Backup), EMC Corporation (EMC Legato® NetWorkerTM), HP (HP OpenViewTM Storage Data Protector), and VERITAS Software (Backup ExecTM).
