StorageNetworks Qualifies Cisco Storage Router

StorageNetworks, Inc., a provider of data storage management software and services, has qualified the Cisco SN 5420 Storage Router.

The Cisco SN 5420 Storage Router is a device built on the iSCSI (Internet Small Computer Systems Interface) protocol, which enables block-level storage traffic to operate over TCP/IP networks.”iSCSI technology is an important and growing part of the storage infrastructure that our enterprise customers and partners need to leverage in order to be competitive,” said John C. Clavin, Executive Vice President of Marketing at StorageNetworks. “At the same time, the wide familiarity with IP networking and the abundance of IP equipment availability make these iSCSI-based storage services cost-effective and easy to deploy and manage when used with our software and services.”

The Cisco SN 5420 Storage Router integration is the latest business project between the two companies. As an Cisco AVVID Partner in the Storage Networking Track, StorageNetworks said it plans to continue to work with Cisco on interoperability testing and co-marketing programs.
