E-Lab Tested is the centerpiece of EMC's E-Infostructure Interoperability Program. The E-Lab Tested process qualifies the interoperability of third-party products within an information storage network, enabling customers to deploy heterogeneous storage networks, quickly, reliably and cost effectively.
As part of the E-Infostructure Interoperability Program, companies maintain cooperative service agreements for fast, streamlined support of joint customers, and together provide advanced storage networking configurations for applications such as long-distance storage and remote disk mirroring.
"Crossroads continues to demonstrate its commitment to interoperability by meeting the performance and reliability requirements of EMC's rigorous product interoperability testing program," said Rich Lautzenheiser, vice president of marketing and business development, Crossroads Systems. "The Crossroads 8000 multi-protocol storage router has successfully completed EMC's requirements for being E-Lab Tested, and we are pleased to offer it to our customers as part of a reliable and robust SAN solution."
As part of its E-Lab Tested process, Crossroads 8000 has also been qualified to interoperate with EMC's backup solution, EMC Data Manage.
