KOM Networks and SANavigator Inc. form Alliance to Provide Total Storage Virtualization Solution
Palm Desert CA, USA – April 10, 2001
KOM Networks and SANavigator Inc. today announced that the two companies have agreed to work together to develop a solution that combines KOM Networks' leading storage virtualization software, StealthWorx™ and SANavigator Inc.'s leading SAN management software SANavigator™.
The StealthWorx™ enterprise wide storage management product allows organizations to seamlessly integrate multiple data storage devices, media, software applications and hardware components across an entire network into one homogeneous virtual storage space. StealthWorx™ takes neutrality to a new level; it is vendor neutral, technology neutral, interconnectivity neutral as well as topology and protocol neutral.
SANavigator™ combines an automatic discovery engine with a visual topology display, providing a SAN management solution that can remotely monitor and manage SAN installations from anywhere in the world with a simple to use Java based console. SANavigator™ explores the SAN and discovers each device, returning information such as the manufacturer, model and version, number of ports, how they are connected and the location within the topology of the SAN.
"This strategic alliance with SANavigator Inc. provides both SANavigator Inc. and KOM Networks with a totally unique storage virtualization solution that covers not only software, but total hardware management. We are excited about this relationship as it continues to establish both companies in the rapidly emerging storage virtualization market," said KOM Networks President Jeffrey Dale. "SANavigator Inc.'s SANavigator™ and KOM's StealthWorx™ compliment each other perfectly, giving organizations a complete, storage virtualization solution."
"By integrating StealthWorx™ with SANavigator™, this solution becomes the most complete storage virtualization solution available today. The combined strength of StealthWorx™ and SANavigator™ means that the user has complete and total control over their network – expanding, contracting, replacing outdated equipment. This alliance between KOM Networks and SANavigator Inc. gives network administrators the control they need over their resources, said SANavigator Inc. President and COO Robert Wright.
SANavigator Inc. and KOM Networks are both bringing new products to the rapidly growing markets of data storage management. According to a recent New York Times article, analysts project that spending on data storage products will account for 70 per cent of information technology budgets by 2005.
