2003 SILVER: FalconStor IPStor 4.0 & Storage magazine editors

FalconStor Software Inc.'s IPStor 4.0 took our silver medal for backup and recovery software and services based on the extensiveness of the DR functionality found in its myriad software options, such as advanced replication and snapshot services, bare metal recovery, backup acceleration, real-time data migration functionality and IPStor's ability to perform continuous online and nearline backups.

One judge said that the product was "useful as a DR solution in many environments." Another judge chimed in with the insight that IPStor was a "well-engineered product with all of the functionality you'd expect for enterprise-class IT."

All was not coming up roses for IPStor from the judges, however. Some areas questioned by our panel included IPStor's high price tag and its lack of consistency groups, or write-ordering, that one judge said was essential for a full-blown DR solution. Additionally, in-band virtualization is not everyone's cup of tea, but IPStor does it as well as anyone.

Overall, the IPStor product scored high on the judge's list in terms of its functionality, all-around performance and innovation.
