    Info on FaclconStor?

    I've just scrubbed their website and there is no meaningful technical documentation that can be easily found. I found a half-ass feature list and almost no user guides or configuration guides. All I found was endless junk for investors. I almost can't tell if they actually have a product to sell.

Now, front ends are great, but there is no information regarding whether their product offers anything special besides a web page on Linux. Heck, it could just as easily be a front end on ZFS and COMSTAR.

    How does a company that doesn't even provide a feature list like whether it supports VAAI-NAS or not sell anything? They brag about having presence in 20% of the Fortune 500. Does that mean that 20% are paying customers or do they have a VM running the demo version?

    I have tried solutions from dozens of vendors but never FalconStor because I could never figure out why I should. But I guess FalconStor prefers to skip the tech guys
