StorageTek certifies BlueArc, ONstor products
StorageTek (Storage Technology Corp.) announced certification of BlueArc Corp.'s Titan SiliconServer and ONStor's SF4400 Series SAN filer for use with StorageTek FlexLine online storage systems. With the combined use of StorageTek's FlexLine and BlueArc's Titan SiliconServer, joint customers can now add the Titan into their existing environments without infrastructure replacement or data migration.
The ONStor SF4400 Series SAN filer uses multi-vendor, multi-tiered storage. A typical ONStor installation within a single, managed environment will include StorageTek's FLX 200 series disk (for frequently accessed files), and the FLX 300 series disk (for backup and archiving).
With these certifications, BlueArc and ONStor are now StorageTek TekAlliance partners.
