According to the companies, the plan is to expand the scope of both DSI and McDATA's global customer base while providing customers full-service, integrated, enterprise-wide storage area networking (SAN) solutions.
"McDATA is in a class by itself in the SAN industry," said Walt Meister, manager of Storage Solutions at DSI. "Their expertise and professionalism fits well with DSI's philosophy of providing the client a total solution. The client can be assured that the solution proposed is correct and will satisfy their business needs."
As part of the reseller agreement, DSI becomes an enterprise SAN integrator in McDATA's Elite Solutions Partner(TM) program to deliver comprehensive open and interoperable SAN solutions.
