FalconStors capable IPStor Storage Virtualization Suite, the first IP virtualization package eWeek Labs has seen, enables sharing of storage resources on SANs while also facilitating the transfer of storage data on IP networks.

SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // SAN infrastructure equipment requires a large amount of planning and financial resources to get up and running, but once the core infrastructure is set up (RAID, switches and HBAs), IPStor slides into place easily.

LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // IPStor will allow IT managers to use all their storage resources more efficiently. IPStors single, centralized management console should make storage management easier in SAN environments.

Easy to implement; provides redundancy; simplifies storage management.

Driver support is limited for Linux and Solaris platforms.
