Global leader in the racket sports industry implements a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) powered by FreeStor® technology

TOKYO, JAPAN – December 15, 2016 – / – FalconStor Software®,  Inc. (NASDAQ: FALC), a 16-year innovator of software-defined storage solutions, announced that Yonex has adopted a backup/disaster recovery service powered by FalconStor technology, provided by HOTnet, a carrier and datacenter company. Yonex, a global leader in the racket sports industry, was faced with the urgent task of finding the best Business Continuity Plan (BCP) for their environment.

After extensive research to find the best recovery options in both cost and operation points, Yonex adopted a “Disaster Recovery/Backup solution” from HOTnet’s managed service. They decided on this solution because of the mobile capabilities, which enable instant recovery from anywhere, offering protection from unexpected events without additional costs or human resources.

Yonex is now remotely protecting more than 50 servers in their Tokyo headquarters site from their Hokkaido site. “Recovery can be accomplished with just one call.” Mr. Katamoto, Director of Information Systems at YONEX, said, “After implementing this service, operations have been consolidated, allowing us to focus on other tasks without worrying about backups”.

Mr. Takayanagi, Manager of Information Systems at YONEX added “We are consistently able to start our recovery server smoothly during disaster recovery (DR) exercises. I’m very confident that there are no issues with our daily backups and I will be able to establish a recovery environment with minimal system downtime.”

The Disaster Recovery / Backup solution service Yonex has deployed was developed by FalconStor Software, Inc. and uses FreeStor® data protection technology. Customers are able to replicate snapshot data to a datacenter in Hokkaido via HOTnet’s WAN service. Customers can also set up automated recovery of servers, storage, networks and applications.

Business Continuity Plans are a challenge for many companies that lack the resources necessary to select the right BCP for their environment. “Using the cloud services powered by FreeStor, companies can implement and deploy the right BCP/DR solution, not only for on-premise systems but for datacenter and cloud environments as well,” said Masayuki Morimoto, President of FalconStor Japan.
