FalconStor Applies Centralized Storage Management Learning To Spain’s Universidad Antonio de Nebrija
FalconStor Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: FALC), the leading developer of proven data protection solutions, today announced an IPStor Enterprise Edition deployment that has brought much-needed centralised storage management to the Universidad Antonio de Nebrija in Madrid, Spain, a top-ten Spanish university, improving efficiency and reducing operational costs.
The deployment of a FalconStor IPStor server at each of the university’s two sites, each with a 1Gbit/s storage area network and providing storage services for two file servers, has provided the university with far greater control over its storage resources. The integration was undertaken by FalconStor partner SM Data.
Prior to the deployment, the university operated two separate networks, each spanning two different physical sites. In effect, this arrangement required management of four sites, each comprising its own storage cabinet and SAN network, which was expensive and inefficient. IPStor has improved efficiency and reduced overall operational costs.
Daniel Magaña Martínez, the University’s IT manager, said: “What we had in place, at great expense, was an overly complex infrastructure that was probably too sophisticated for our needs. IPStor enables us to simplify the infrastructure and make the best use of the resources at our disposal, ensuring our 300 staff and 1300 students always have access to IT services.”
Sergi Torrens, sales manager for Spain, FalconStor, said: “IPStor is the ultimate flexible platform. Today it is simplifying the whole storage management process for the university; tomorrow, if they wanted to mirror data between the university’s two sites for disaster recovery purposes, it would still be IPStor that would do that.”
