Emulex, Netreon develop a new way to view SANs

Emulex Corp., Costa Mesa, Calif., and Netreon Inc., announced a deal to incorporate support for Emulex's recently announced HBAnyware management suite into Netreon's SANexec Designer solution. The Netreon SANexec Designer solution will integrate support for HBAnyware to streamline the discovery and management of Emulex host bus adapters across multiple operating systems and the servers in which they operate, according to Netreon. Emulex's HBAnyware technology provides visibility to the SAN, enabling access to host associations, port attributes, link status and discovery information. HBAnyware is driver-based and uses in-band, industry standard protocols. Storage professionals will now be able to use Netreon's SANexec Designer to discover more detailed information about the hosts, as well as their relationship to the storage area network.
