The FalconStor Network Storage Server (NSS) is a storage solution that allows heterogeneous server and storage attachment with a wide range of data services. Support for multiple storage protocols, including Fibre Channel (FC) and Internet Small Computer Systems Interface (iSCSI) from the same storage pool as virtual logical unit numbers (LUNs) for servers, is accomplished through the storage area network (SAN) virtualization capabilities introduced with the NSS software.

Network Storage Server (NSS) is a product that built on the original software called IPSTOR. NSS contains a new implementation that FalconStor calls the Intelligent Abstraction engine. The advanced features offered by FalconStor have been integrated into NSS.

FalconStor NSS services include high availability (clustering), synchronous and asynchronous mirroring, remote replication, snapshot (point-in-time) copy, dynamic multi-pathing, and change-journaling (TimeMark). The software can be installed on Intel-based server(s) and runs on a modified Linux operating system (OS). Host attachment to the NSS includes any servers that support FC, iSCSI, or InfiniBand. Device attachments include any standards-compliant storage array.
