Nimbus Forges 10-Gig Alliance

SAN FRANCISCO -- Nimbus Data Systems, the leading innovator in IP storage systems, in partnership with Arastra, Force10 Networks, Fujitsu, Fulcrum Microsystems, Mellanox Technologies, Neterion, and NetXen, today announced the 10 Gigabit Ethernet Storage Alliance, an ecosystem of adapter, switch, and storage system developers united by a common goal: to increase awareness and enterprise deployments of 10 Gigabit Ethernet as the superior storage networking infrastructure for server virtualization and enterprise-wide storage consolidation given its proven interoperability, low cost, common management, and high performance.

As long expected, 10GbE is now a viable platform for high performance storage networking. As server, network, and storage virtualization transform the way we build and operate datacenter infrastructure, 10GbE will become the unifying and strategic network,” says Michael Peterson, President of Strategic Research Corporation. “I have to compliment Arastra, Force10 Networks, Fujitsu, Fulcrum Microsystems, Mellanox Technologies, Neterion, NetXen, and Nimbus Data Systems for their leadership in recognizing the importance of creating this alliance to help customers learn about the value of 10GbE in their environments.”
