February 20, 2024 – Converge Technology Solutions Corp. and FalconStor Software, Inc., a leader in optimizing data protection for IBM Power environments, are pleased to announce they have agreed to deliver a simplified deployment model for Falconstor’s StorSafe virtual tape library, running on Google Cloud Platform. This new model will be offered to all Google Cloud customers as a cloud-based backup solution for either on-premises or cloud instances of IBM Power systems. This collaboration also represents a significant step towards modernizing data backup and archival operations in the IBM Power cloud computing landscape.

This integration provides IP4G customers with an enhanced cloud-based backup solution, further complementing Converge’s IP4G product suite. Customers will also now be able to benefit from FalconStor’s data protection optimization, including reducing backend storage requirements by up to 95% while increasing performance of both backups and recovery. 

“Both IP4G and StorSafe VTL have already proven very popular with IBM i customers running in the cloud,” stated Greg Rhoades, CTO of Converge Technology Solutions. “Integrating these solutions and broadening support for AIX, Linux, and Windows workloads further enhances this offering for all customers adopting Google Cloud infrastructure solutions.” 

“Converge is trusted by IBM Power customers in adopting cloud-based backup solutions, and we’re excited to be working with them,” stated Todd Brooks, CEO of FalconStor. “IP4G with StorSafe VTL on the Google Cloud Platform delivers solid value with easy deployment.”
