INRANGE Technologies today announced that EMC Corporation has qualified the 64-port version of the INRANGE IN-VSN(TM) FC/9000(TM) Fibre Channel Director as E-Lab Tested for use in Enterprise Storage Networks (ESNs) employing EMC’s Symmetrix Enterprise Storage systems.
NRANGE said the FC/9000 qualification attained through EMC’s E-Infostructure Interoperability Program builds upon a 7-year relationship between EMC and INRANGE in which the companies have teamed to deliver joint solutions for enterprise-scale storage networks.
“The FC/9000 qualification initiative with Symmetrix is an important next step in our long history with EMC,” stated INRANGE CEO Greg Grodhaus. “It expands our fibre channel offerings to the broad EMC customer base and builds on our commitment to deliver storage networking solutions that are flexible and open, supporting the widest array of servers and storage in the industry. Given that EMC has the industry’s largest storage market share, it is key that we work well together.”
