New, Easy Migration Program Offers no Charge License Swap for IBM ProtecTIER
Customers Using Existing Hardware

MELVILLE, N.Y., April 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FalconStor Software®, Inc.
(Nasdaq:FALC), a market leader in data protection and migration, today
announces a free migration program for IBM® ProtecTIER® customers, offering a
no charge, like-for-like license swap. Due to the interoperable,
hardware-agnostic nature of FalconStor technology, this migration program
allows customers to reuse their existing hardware.

Customers migrating to FalconStor's solution will experience complete business
continuity, as automatic tape caching functions allow backups and recoveries
to continue uninterrupted as data or tapes are migrated in the background.

"We're proud to offer IBM ProtecTIER customers the freedom to migrate their
data at no cost and with no interruptions," said Gary Quinn, President and
CEO, FalconStor Software. "In today's business world, data is a critical asset
whose value cannot be underestimated. It's essential that data be managed and
protected properly. For FalconStor customers, that means having the industry's
most flexible, cost-effective solutions without the worry of vendor lock-in or
data loss and downtime. We're confident that our new customers will benefit
from the improved performance and freedom offered by FalconStor."

FalconStor's free migration program applies to like-for-like license swaps
with equal capacity. New customers will be migrated onto the recently launched
FalconStor Optimized Backup & Deduplication 8.0™. This solution platform
allows users to manage both block and file backup and deduplication on a
single node, significantly reducing the backup window and shrinking the
storage footprint. New customers are required to sign a three-year maintenance
agreement and can purchase additional capacity and/or data management
solutions at their discretion. 

Availability and pricing

FalconStor's free migration program is available immediately through December
31, 2014. Migration support is also available at FalconStor's standard rates,
including basic installation and integration services, planning, design, and
optimization services. For more information, contact 1.866.NOW.FALC or visit
