FalconStor's HyperFS file system software is designed to run on any channel member's chosen hardware and storage. As noted in this report on The Register, the net result is a system that could compete with Isilon, Panasas, HP's X9000, IBM's SONAS and other scale-out NAS boxes sold into the same markets.


"It's a software product sold by FalconStor's channel and can use any storage hardware underneath it. The idea is that channel people can build their own systems for their customers, using their own media/entertainment apps or third-party ones that cover some or all parts of the media content work cycle. The apps get their files or objects from a single name space and global repository created by HyperFS running on the the channel member's hardware and chosen storage.

"The net result is a system that could compete with Isilon, Panasas, HP's X9000, IBM's SONAS and other scale-out NAS boxes sold into the same markets."
