Storage: FalconStor's NSS secures and complies with HIPAA

FalconStor Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: FALC), the market leader in disk-based data protection solutions, announced today that Whole Health Management, Inc., a leading operator of on-site corporate health and wellness centers, has implemented the FalconStor® Network Storage Server (NSS), powered by the FalconStor® IPStor® virtualization platform. Chi Corporation, a leading FalconStor Solution Provider partner, integrated the FalconStor IPStor SAN consisting of two NSS appliances into Whole Health’s existing SAN infrastructure.

Chi integrated two NSS appliances into a High Availability (HA) cluster with 24 drives each, housed at Whole Health’s secure data center, to manage Whole Health’s SAN infrastructure. The SAN hosts Whole Health’s critical business operations data and utilizes TimeMark® snapshots and replication option between the FalconStor NSS at the main office and the remote data center for disaster recovery.

“We store everything from email to confidential electronic medical records,” said Chuck Siemon, Chief Information Officer at Whole Health. “The FalconStor NSS saves us time and money, optimizing the use of disk space and no longer requiring the reconfiguring or ordering of new disks for each server we purchase. Due to the FalconStor NSS’ snapshot capabilities, we have a solution that is better than data encryption for protecting copies of our data. We are confident that the FalconStor NSS will keep our confidential healthcare data secure and in compliance with HIPAA regulations.”
