FalconStor VTL optimizes disk backup
FalconStor® Virtual Tape Library (VTL) is the industry's market-leading virtual tape solution, unmatched in performance and scalability. With virtual tape, backups complete faster and more reliably, with little or no change needed to the backup environment. Sophisticated physical tape integration and global data deduplication complete the solution.
- Fast backup speeds to meet the backup window
- Scalable deduplication repository for long-term data retention
- Direct tape export automatically writes to tape without impacting production backup
Performance and specifications
A FalconStor VTL appliance can achieve backup speeds of 1.6 GB per second, or over 5.8 TB per hour, allowing users to solve the single biggest issue in backup: meeting the backup window. Up to eight appliances can combine into a single logical unit, scaling performance to a remarkable 12.8 GB per second, or 46TB per hour. Combined with the latest high-speed protocols, including 8Gb Fibre Channel (FC) and 10Gb Ethernet, FalconStor VTL can sustain deduplication rates of over 800 MB per second, linearly scaling in performance to a sustained deduplication rate of 9.7 TB per hour. Typical deduplication ratios of 20:1 reduce storage footprints by 95% or more.
Business benefits of global deduplication and replication
Using FalconStor VTL with deduplication, we have significantly reduced our backup window and eliminated redundant data. We are excited about Version 7 and its performance enhancements.

FalconStor VTL with integrated deduplication scales to meet the data growth needs of today’s largest enterprises with global deduplication that scales to over 1PB of physical usable storage.
Deduplicated virtual tapes in remote locations can be globally replicated via the WAN to the data center, where the FalconStor VTL solution aggregates the data into a clustered repository of globally unique data.
