Wasabi Systems and Intel to Collaborate on Storage and Networking Solutions

"This collaboration is a natural fit for both companies," said Robert Raucci, Chairman and CEO of Wasabi. "We are focusing on the storage and infrastructure markets, where Intel's XScale technology-based processors are emerging in upcoming solutions."

"NetBSD's capabilities make it a strong fit for applications such as iSCSI targets, RAID controllers and routers," said Mike Wall, general manager of the Intel Storage Components Division. of Intel. "Working with Wasabi should result in excellent combined hardware and software solutions for our customers."

The Intel-Wasabi collaboration will include optimizing NetBSD for iSCSI, joint development of iSCSI products based on Intel storage building blocks and the creation of NetBSD board support packages for future Intel customer reference platforms.
