today announced a heterogeneous storage area network (SAN) implementation in its corporate data center. This new data center serves as a living showcase of the most advanced SAN technology in the market from Veritas Software and key technology partners Emulex, Hitachi Data Systems, McData, Quantum and Sun Microsystems.
It includes data protection, disaster recovery, storage virtualization, high availability and SAN management solutions that demonstrate a proven framework for organizations interested in building a SAN to support their mission-critical applications.
