Seagate targets SAN market in Asia Pacific

By : |December 22, 2000 0

NEW DELHI: XIOtech Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Seagate
Technology dealing in virtualized storage and Storage Area Network (SAN)
solutions, has planned a major offensive for the Asia Pacific market. It will be
committing significant resources to launching new products and services and in
expanding its sales strategy to provide SAN solutions to the fast growing SAN
marketplace in Asia Pacific. These solutions and services will help customers
manage information and transactions efficiently across increasingly complex,
multi-vendor networks.

XIOtech pledges support towards developing collaborative industry SAN
standards by participating in the Storage Networking Industry Association’s (SNIA)
workgroups. Seagate is a voting member in SNIA. XIOtech has also announced that
it will step up its involvement in developing and implementing fibre channel
standards and interoperability through its new membership in the Fiber Channel
Industry Association (FCIA).

According to IDC Asia Pacific 2000, the SAN market is expected to grow beyond
the $1,000 million mark by 2004 as storage networking lays the foundation for
the more effective management of enterprise data.



SAN technology plays an increasingly critical role in how digital information
is stored and managed in the Internet era. It offers the scalability and
manageability advantages of today’s network architecture while significantly
increasing network performance by eliminating bottlenecks on the information
superhighway. The SAN technology enables migration of critical types of
information intelligence from servers to storage platforms. These intelligent
storage platforms can connect directly to the network and to each other,
liberating server bandwidth, significantly increasing network performance and
reliability, and substantially reducing network management costs.
