Eurologic(TM) Systems, a provider of network storage solutions for the vertical, channel and server markets, today announced plans to develop, co-validate and market Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (S-ATA) network storage solutions for the enterprise and departmental-level markets with Intel Corporation.
Eurologic and Intel plan to integrate Intel's S-ATA I/O building block technologies, including I/O processors and S-ATA silicon, into Eurologic's storage systems technology. Nick Thickins, director of applications marketing for Eurologic, said, "Both parties are bringing their core competencies to the equation. Eurologic's proven storage technology and Intel's innovative S-ATA-based I/O building block technology will provide customers the performance, simplicity and cost advantages of S-ATA."
Wendy Vittori, general manager of Intel's I/O and Bridges Division, said, "With its greater range of features and improved performance at significantly lower cost, Serial ATA will create a profound shift in storage systems and appliances, where value is a key driver. By combining the strengths of our core competencies, Intel and Eurologic are enabling OEMs to come to market early with complete and validated Serial ATA solutions that take advantage of this shift. OEMs can offer their end-users more storage in dense packaging and at increased price/performance ratios while also protecting their IT infrastructure investment."
Eurologic and Intel plan to demonstrate S-ATA technology at Fall COMDEX next week.
