INRANGE Technologies today announced that effective immediately it will provide Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) from major manufacturers directly to its enterprise customers in its end-to-end SAN offerings.
INRANGE will supply HBAs manufactured primarily by QLogic in addition to select HBAs from Emulex and JNI. Technical support and on-site service will be provided through INRANGE's direct Sales and Service Organization, which includes a Global Solutions division that can assist customers with all phases of pre- and post-SAN installation.
"INRANGE is a strategic partner for QLogic as we work together to provide the marketplace with highly scalable end-to-end solutions," stated Mark Edwards, senior vice president, QLogic Corporation. "INRANGE can now offer customers a complete solution set by providing QLogic's SANblade Fibre Channel HBAs, along with the IN-VSN family of storage networking solutions, through its worldwide sales and service organization. This step is both a logical and beneficial evolution of their SAN deployment strategy."
