9/12/2002 - Wasabi Systems, the leading commercial provider of the NetBSD operating system for embedded applications, announced an equity investment from Intel Capital. The funding will be used, in part, to develop storage and networking products in collaboration with Intel.
Wasabi Systems is the leading provider of custom products and development services for the NetBSD operating system. NetBSD's small footprint and advanced networking capabilities are necessary components for next-generation embedded systems — the computers hidden in everyday devices such as cell phones, telecom switches and cable set-top boxes. Wasabi's customers have included manufacturers of Internet infrastructure products, storage devices, and set-top boxes.
"Wasabi's expertise and robust NetBSD development environment are a key complement to Intel's storage building block family," said Jeff Dawkins, General Manager of Intel's Storage Components Division. "Wasabi's support of the Intel® XScale® technology-based I/O processors gives developers a strong starting point for developing high performance storage applications."
"The future of storage networking is coming into view and Wasabi and Intel are dedicated to providing high quality next generation storage solutions," said Robert Raucci, CEO of Wasabi Systems. "We are delighted to be working with Intel to help bring these solutions to our customers."
