Network Appliance, a provider of network storage solutions, and Fujitsu Siemens Computers announced an enhancement to their European-wide sales relationship which began in July 2000.
As Fujitsu Siemens Computers broadens its product portfolio into the blade server business, the company said it has named Network Appliance as its strategic storage partner for this new server architecture.

Network-centric storage solutions are the ideal solution. We chose Network Appliance as a storage partner for blade server environments because they offer the most robust network storage solutions and meet the demanding enterprise need for server consolidation in the data center,” says Dieter Herzog, vice president Primergy Servers, Fujitsu Siemens Computers.
