SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- NetApp (NASDAQ:NTAP - News) announced today that the SANscreen product suite, which was acquired in the acquisition of Onaro, is now available through NetApp’s global sales and channel partner programs. In addition, the more than 100 current SANscreen customers will benefit from NetApp’s global 24x7 support organization.

SANscreen is an award-winning product suite that extends data center automation to storage with its real-time, heterogeneous, service-level views of the storage environment. SANscreen allows customers to manage storage as a true end-to-end IT service, which reduces capital and operational costs and improves application service quality. Furthermore, its actionable service-level information can be leveraged by both storage teams and non-technical storage users, effectively integrating storage into the entire IT service delivery chain.

“We have spent the last three months integrating SANscreen into NetApp® product operations,” said Patrick Rogers, vice president of Solutions Marketing for NetApp. “With the integration now complete, we are able to extend the capabilities of SANscreen to more customers worldwide through our global sales channels. Also, SANscreen customers will now be able to benefit from NetApp’s extensive support infrastructure.”

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- At Computex Taipei 2008, VMware, Inc. (NYSE:VMW), the global leader in virtualization solutions from the desktop to the datacenter, today announced new relationships with original design manufacturers (ODMs) ASUS, Gigabyte, Inventec and Tyan, adding to VMware’s current relationship with Supermicro announced in February 2008.The relationships will enable channel partners and system builders worldwide to make virtualization available to a broader range of customers by certifying a wide range of one-, two- and four-socket server systems as well as blade servers for the VMware virtualization platform. This provides customers of all sizes even greater flexibility when selecting the servers most suited to their needs. The vendors are certifying their server systems for the VMware ESX and ESXi hypervisor, with certified systems expected to be available later this year.

“As companies worldwide adopt virtualization in growing numbers, we continue to expand our partner ecosystem to provide customers with greater hardware choices,” said Brian Byun, vice president of global partners and solutions at VMware. “Working with the ODM community, we are helping our channel partner and system builder ecosystem bring new options for offering the transformative business advantages of VMware virtualization to a broader range of customers. Organizations of all sizes will benefit from these new relationships, particularly small and medium businesses looking for cost-effective ways to get more value from their investments, better protect their systems and data, and improve staff productivity.”
