FalconStor, an early storage virtualization vendor, is trying to rebuild itself with its FreeStor storage virtualization. FalconStor FreeStor provides block-based services such as data migration, protection, recovery and analytics for heterogeneous storage.“Our overall performance still requires some improvement,”said Gary Quinn, FalconStor’s president and CEO. “We have been able to grow FreeStor, but just not at a rate faster than the legacy product is weakening. Many of our legacy customers were larger virtual tape library (VTL) customers who have chosen to update their backup solutions with modern snapshot technology. In many cases, those VTL customers were part of a field-based OEM partners’ sales team, which meant FalconStor did not have direct contact (with) those customers.”

Industries increasingly want a bit of both from their IoT so this partnership has been created to provide that.Using software-based intelligence pre-loaded onto Cisco IoT network devices, telemetry data pipelines from industry-standard protocols like OPC-Unified Architecture (OPC-UA) and Modbus can be easily established using a friendly UI directly into Azure IoT Hub,” explains the blog, “Additional telemetry processing is also supported by Cisco through local scripts developed in Microsoft Visual Studio, where filtered data can also be uploaded directly into Azure IoT Hub.
