Storage solutions to meet strict customer data migration needs while expanding information retention and data integrity mandates
AUSTIN, Texas, March 31, 2020 — FalconStor Software, Inc.

The integration between Wasabi and FalconStor offers a seamless path to hybrid cloud and a cost-efficient long-term archival and robust data preservation solution, while retention periods often extend beyond 100 years.
With FalconStor’s award-winning deduplication and Wasabi’spublic cloud object storage service, the migration solution reduces storage consumption, lowers storage cost, and eliminates the need for a costly secondary data center. It integrates into any existing backup and archival data center architecture for seamless data migration to Wasabi.
“The relationship with FalconStor helps enable organizations to seamlessly and efficiently migrate to the cloud and deliver proficient custodianship for long-term data retention,” said David Friend, CEO of Wasabi. “We deliver disruptive storage technology that is one fifth the price of Amazon S3 and faster than the competition, with no fees for egress or API requests. The joint storage solution with FalconStor is ideal for organizations that want to keep data on-prem, but also want an off-prem copy in an S3-compliant cloud storage service.”
“Wasabi continues to innovate on both the technology and the business model frontiers, and the approach is profoundly changing cloud economics,” said Todd Brooks, FalconStor CEO. “As compliance, regulatory, legal, and other information mandates evolve while retained storage volume grows, our shared vision of the emerging demands and requirements in the evolving operational storage and long-term archival and data preservation segments align seamlessly, helping our customers secure, protect, and ensure data integrity. We believe our collaboration with Wasabi will bring the technologies together to offer a cost-effective alternative to traditional tape archives with better data accessibility and portability.”
