StoneFly Unveils IP SANs

SAN DIEGO -- StoneFly, Inc., a leading supplier of integrated IP storage area network
(SAN) systems and a wholly owned subsidiary of Dynamic Network Factory, Inc.
(DNF), today announced support across its entire IP SAN product line on Sun
Microsystems, Inc.'s Solaris 10 Operating System (OS). The announcement was
made following StoneFly's completion of rigorous certification testing as
part of Sunss Solaris Ready Logo Program.

All StoneFly product families, including its recently introduced
High-Availability Storage Concentrator (HSC), have been certified as having
proven interoperability with the Solaris 10 OS on UltraSPARC and x86/x64
server platforms. In addition, StoneFly's StoneFusion Intelligent Network
Storage Platform, which offers comprehensive storage services and comes
standard with each StoneFly IP SAN, is now interoperable with the built-in
Solaris iSCSI initiator as well as other third-party hardware-based iSCSI
initiators designed for the Sun platform.

"We are pleased to welcome StoneFly into the Solaris Ready Logo family.
Their participation ensures that the Sun market can take advantage of
Sun-certified iSCSI solutions that address high-performance storage
requirements while also offering scalability and affordability," said Roger
Day, Director, Collaboration and ISV Engineering, Sun Microsystems, Inc. "In
addition, with the new third-generation Solaris software-based initiator
from Sun, Sun customers can now rapidly deploy IP SAN solutions such as
StoneFly's without additional hardware or infrastructure costs, making it
easy and cost-effective to gain all the benefits of storage centralization
via storage virtualization."
