Nimbus to Bundle SMC Switches in Turnkey SAN SolutionSMC Networks to be the supplier of switches for new Nimbus Data Systems turnkey SAN (May 31, 2005)
SMC Networks (www.smc.com) and Nimbus Data Systems, the company that enables Storage Networking for All, today announced that SMC Networks' Gigabit and 10Gigabit switches will be an integral part of Nimbus' new turnkey storage area network solutions.
In an effort to simplify deployment of an affordable, fully-tested, turnkey SAN system, Nimbus is bundling managed and unmanaged Gigabit and 10G SMC switches in densities ranging from eight to 48-ports into their SAN solutions. The range of switch choices provides Nimbus customers with networking choices for SANs ranging from workgroup to Enterprise.
Initially, Nimbus will offer SAN bundles that include EZ Switch 10/100/1000 unmanaged switches in 16 and 24-port versions (SMCGS16 and SMCGS24) for workgroup applications and TigerSwitch 10/100/1000 managed switches in 12, 24 and 48-port versions (SMC8612T, SMC8624T and SMC8648T) for enterprise applications.
"We're thrilled to participate in this effort to make SANs more accessible," said Tony Stramandinoli, SMC Networks' Director of Marketing. "We're pleased to work with a company like Nimbus that shares SMC's commitment to reliability, ease of use, robustness and affordability."
Nimbus IP SAN solutions, bundled with SMC Gigabit switches, start under $6,000 and are available now from its system integrator partners or directly from the company.
