SBE Inc., a provider of high-performance IP-based networking solutions for storage and communications systems, has announced that two networking and storage equipment providers, Open Source Storage (OSS) and Yang Ming International (YMI) Corporation, have chosen to license and integrate SBE's PyX iSCSI target software into their next generation storage devices.
OSS is porting SBE's PyX iSCSI software to its Linux-based SATA storage server solutions supporting up to 16 terabytes. A provider of high-performance networking solutions for the open source community, OSS specializes in supplying large-scale data centers with systems that can address its customers' mission-critical applications.
"Our development team has been very pleased with the results of the evaluation and testing that we've conducted on the PyX iSCSI target and initiator stacks," said Eren Niazi, CEO of OSS. "Particularly, we are eager to bundle the advanced performance features, full standards compliance and interoperability of the PyX iSCSI solution into our new SATA box so our customers can reap the many benefits."
YMI is using the PyX iSCSI target protocol stack in both their Rackmountpro-branded Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and Serial ATA (SATA) storage servers. Established over a decade ago as a provider of networking equipment, including servers and chassis, YMI sells its product solutions directly to the government, educational institutions, major enterprises and small businesses.
"After considering various iSCSI solutions available in today's market, we selected SBE's PyX iSCSI protocol stack for several reasons," said Jack Lin of YMI Corporation. "One was clearly the strong technical knowledge and support that SBE provided during the product evaluation process. Most importantly, the PyX iSCSI target software best suits our customers' requirements, delivering a full feature set and exceptional performance at an affordable price. We validated our decision last month at the Supercomputing show where we successfully demonstrated the SATA storage server running SBE's PyX iSCSI target stack."
"We're pleased that OSS and YMI have chosen our iSCSI stack for their new storage products, and look forward to broadening our reach into their established bases of enterprise, government, educational, and technology customers via these SAS and SATA devices," commented Chris Short, Vice President of Business Development at SBE. "The OSS and YMI wins came as direct results of enhancing our channel strategy with proven manufacturer's representative firms -- in this case from Fourfront and Centaur, respectively. And, based on the flurry of opportunities that our new reps have already introduced us to in the last few weeks, we expect to see our recently expanded distribution channel produce further successes as we head into 2006," continued Short.
Both the OSS and YMI storage devices featuring SBE's PyX iSCSI software will be available in the first quarter of 2006.
