Vixel Corporation and Sagitta Performance Systems, a United Kingdom provider of storage area networking (SAN) products and storage consulting services, today announced a partnership agreement.
According to the companies, Sagitta has selected Vixel's SAN InSite(TM) Professional as their storage resource management software of choice and will sell and install the product as part of their cache of storage products and service offerings.
"With over 10,000 Fibre Channel ports installed in Europe, Sagitta's reputation as a leading SAN provider and storage consultant is well recognized in the European community," says Jim McCluney, president and chief executive officer of Vixel Corporation. "We believe Sagitta's choice of SAN InSite Professional is a significant validation of both the viability of our product and the value of SAN management software."
"Sagitta has completed its testing of SAN InSite Professional and will now be offering it to both our existing base of customers and as part of the value proposition we bring to the table for new storage engagements," says Andrew Norman, chief executive officer of Sagitta Performance Systems. "As storage networks become an increasingly ubiquitous element of network topologies and SAN users leverage new developments to extend the reach of their SANs across wide area networks, they will need to manage the resulting complexity of their infrastructures. With SAN InSite Professional, we can help make it easy for our customers to manage their storage networks and control the costs associated with managing their SANs."
