RELDATA IP Storage Virtualization Appliance Earns LSI Logic Certification

RELDATA Inc., leading provider of universal IP storage management appliances, today announced that its flagship product, the RELDATA 9200 IP Storage Gateway, has received Compatibility Certification from LSI Logic.

LSI provides core storage building blocks to many of the world’s largest information technology companies via its worldwide network of OEM (original equipment manufacturer) partners, and the company’s Certified Compatible process requires extensive testing to assure stability, interoperability and fault tolerance using heavy loads typical of high-performance enterprise computing.

"Certification of RELDATA’s storage virtualization appliance with LSI storage arrays paves the way for cutting-edge, tiered universal IP SAN and NAS storage solutions," said Steve Gardner, director product marketing, Engenio Storage Group, LSI Logic. "Having passed the stringent LSI Logic Certification process, customers can now be sure that combined RELDATA/LSI IP storage solutions will perform in all of the varied storage computing environments supplied by LSI OEM partners."

LSI Logic Engenio storage systems are branded by leading OEMs such as IBM, SGI, SUN StorageTek and Teradata. The combination of the RELDATA 9200 Gateway with LSI storage arrays offers customers a simple, affordable way to build and protect highly scalable, tiered IP storage solutions that support parallel, high-performance iSCSI SAN and CIFS/NFS NAS storage provisioning, together with a variety of enterprise-grade remote replication and recovery capabilities. Modular RELDATA/LSI IP storage solutions free storage managers from the need to install and manage two disparate systems for enterprise NAS and IP SAN applications. In addition, they facilitate the cost-effective implementation of flexible, enterprise-wide data replication, backup and disaster recovery solutions.

“This certification enables LSI OEM partners to offer world-class, universal IP SAN storage systems that support parallel NAS storage provisioning and industry-leading data replication and disaster recovery capabilities,” said Boris Anderer, CEO and president of RELDATA. “For enterprises with fast-growing, distributed data volumes, this is a combination that surpasses all the competition.”
