Emprise 5000 by Xiotech Emerges as Choice for Best-of-Breed, Purpose-Built IT Storage Device

ISE Powered Alliance Program Yields Powerful Combined Solutions Featuring Patented ISE Technology and Other Value-Added Features

LAS VEGAS, May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Xiotech Corporation's Emprise(TM) 5000 storage system, built on patented Intelligent Storage Element (ISE(TM)) technology, continues to gain acceptance and validation in the storage industry as an ideal storage building block, as demonstrated by several new partnerships formed through Xiotech's ISE Powered Alliance Program. Xiotech and its partners are bringing the Emprise 5000 system together with top industry services to create best-of-breed, purpose-built end user solutions.

ISE Powered Alliance Program partners include:

  • Data Domain and its DD690g deduplication storage gateway;
  • DataCore and its SANmelody and SANsymphony solutions, which provide heterogeneous storage control for iSCSI and FC SAN solutions;
  • FalconStor and its suite of enterprise-class storage solutions for virtualization and provisioning, data protection and data deduplication;
  • Hitachi Universal Storage Platform (USP), a large-enterprise, heterogeneous storage solution for data centers;
  • Symantec and its Veritas Storage Foundation heterogeneous storage management solution, which makes for a highly scalable and high-performance infrastructure when used with Emprise 5000.

"Development of our ISE technology has changed the game with regard to how storage solutions can be built and architected to deliver the most value possible," said Xiotech(R) Vice President of Marketing Mike Hoch. "The ISE architecture, with management, cache and other drive functions moved close to the storage itself, eliminates controllers and other performance bottlenecks of traditional systems and yields superior performance and reliability. So when our Emprise 5000 is put behind our partners' services, they also work better and deliver more value at better price points. Everybody wins - and most importantly, end users are presented with the best, most flexible storage solutions on the market."

DataCore was excited to join with Xiotech because the combination makes perfect sense. "Xiotech's Emprise 5000 systems set a new standard in terms of reliability and durability for scalable storage arrays and DataCore's storage virtualization delivers the software flexibility and productivity needed to let users get the most out of their overall storage investment and lower lifecycle costs," said DataCore Vice President of Product and Channel Marketing James Price. "This combined solution marries the best of both worlds - top notch, worry-free storage systems and the cost savings and unparalleled productivity benefits of the industry's leading storage virtualization software."

"We live in a world where multi-syllabic words such as convergence, heterogeneity and interoperability are rapidly gaining in popularity," said Enterprise Strategy Group Analyst Mark Peters. "But this popularity has nothing to do with a love of semantics - and everything to do with vendors co-operating and adding significant operational value to end users. It is good to see Xiotech partnering so strongly in this with its innovative ISE architecture."

More information on these partnerships and combined solutions, and demos of some of them, are available at Xiotech booth #2255 at Interop Las Vegas.
