Default IBM Storage Virtualization Software to Manage Massive Amounts of Data

Company Unleashes Next Generation IBM TotalStorage SAN File System Software

ARMONK, NY, May. 25, 2004 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX) -- IBM today announced the next generation of its storage virtualization software that helps customers easily share millions of data files through a software layer. The new storage software includes support for IBM and non-IBM systems to simplify the management and complexity of mixed environments.

The IBM TotalStorage SAN File System (SFS) V2.1 has been enhanced to support IBM and a wide range of non-IBM Storage Area Network (SAN) attached storage devices, including devices from EMC, HP and Hitachi. The software is designed without inherent limitations on the amount of storage that can be supported. The SFS is targeted at transforming the economics of SAN storage by allowing customers to better use existing hardware investments through a software virtualization layer.

"Storage virtualization software is truly simplifying infrastructures around the world and helping clients deal with the high costs and complexity of data management," said Brian Truskowski, General Manager, IBM TotalStorage Open Software. "The IBM TotalStorage SAN File System is reinventing the way information is filed, managed, shared and accessed in an organization. With the enhanced capabilities we are announcing today, the IBM TotalStorage SAN File System is an unparalleled addition to the storage industry."

Closely following the introduction of extended storage server support for the IBM TotalStorage SAN Volume Controller, the TotalStorage SAN File System is key to IBM's strategy of providing customers with leading storage virtualization software. As part of the IBM TotalStorage Open Software Family, the next generation product is a network-based heterogeneous file system that provides a single, centralized point of control to manage files and databases.

Built with autonomic technologies from IBM Research, the software is designed to help reduce the overall amount of storage required in a customer's infrastructure by allowing storage resources to be shared more efficiently across servers and by reducing the need for duplicate copies of files. The IBM TotalStorage SAN File System also has the ability to help clients improve application availability by reducing application downtime for storage and data management tasks.

The software also features a number of availability and security enhancements, including improvements to the administrative user interface that make data easier to manage. Additional host operating system support includes, Red Hat Linux Enterprise Server 3.0 and Sun Solaris 9.

The IBM TotalStorage SAN File System Version 2.1 will be available on June 29, 2004.{30459C78-F558-45E8-A4C8-7458700CA9CF}&destination=&symb=IBM
