FalconStor Optimized Backup (VTL & NAS): Operating Systems, Tape Devices, and Backup Software

All devices on this Certification Matrix have been certified in our Interoperability Lab or within our partners' labs. FalconStor tests as many possible operating system, hardware, and software combinations as possible. Even with this extensive testing, the exact versions at your site may differ slightly from those tested. Please contact a FalconStor Certified Reseller or your local FalconStor account team if you have any questions.

FalconStor VTL supports a majority of the leading physical tape libraries via Fibre Channel. You can import data from or export data to any physical tape library that FalconStor VTL emulates as well as any library whose internal tape drives are certified, as seen on the list below. Unless noted below, all libraries and drives are certified with OBD 9.00, 8.20, 8.10, 8.00, and VTL 7.50.

For information about devices and software certified with previous FalconStor product versions, check our Archived FalconStor Optimized Backup: Operating Systems, Tape Devices, and Backup Software page.
