Sun Certifies BiTMICRO's E-Disk SAN Solutions as Solaris Ready

1/19/2005 - BiTMICRO(r) Networks, a maker of intelligent flash IDE/ATA, SCSI, USB, VME, Compact PCI, PMC, FireWire, Ethernet, and Fibre Channel solid state storage solutions, announced it will support the Solaris(tm) 10 Operating System (OS) on both SPARC(r) and x86 platforms. Additionally, it has achieved Solaris Ready(tm) certification from Sun Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ: SUNW) for its line of E-Disk(r)SAN Fibre Channel rack mount systems.

The announcements builds on the E-Disk(r) IDE/ATA, Fibre Channel and SCSI Wide solid state disks (SSDs) product line strength by achieving the Solaris Ready certification.

BiTMICRO's E-Disk(r)SAN Fibre Channel and SCSI rack mount systems provide fast access times to stored data for military, industrial and enterprise networks and also data integrity in case of power degradation or failure. Its scalability feature enables users to protect their investment in the SSD arena. As demand for solid state storage grows, users can easily add the needed capacity by scaling up at the E-Disk(r) level or by easily interconnecting BiTMICRO's network solid state subsystems to create extremely large SSD storage pools.

With enterprise storage requirements escalating and becoming more complex, factors such as data center consolidation, security, scalability and accessibility are becoming critical. BiTMICRO's E-Disk(r)SAN solutions can deliver the performance and scalability that IT managers require when running high-transaction applications on business-critical systems.

Similarly, E-Disk(r)SAN solid state storage are suitable for industrial and military applications where ruggedness, reliability, high performance, and the ability to withstand very hostile environments off premises and field deployments are of utmost importance.

"Customers want open, standards-based management for their storage platforms," stated Rudy Bruce, President of BiTMICRO Networks. "We strongly feel that earning customer confidence in the interoperability arena will further boost acceptance of our solid state SAN solutions in the military, industrial and enterprise market segments," adds Bruce.

"Sun is pleased that BiTMICRO continues to deliver world-class SAN solutions that support Solaris 10 for both SPARC and x86 platforms," said Juan Carlos Soto, software CTO and senior director, market development engineering, Sun Microsystems, Inc. "BiTMICRO's work with Sun to deliver tested and approved Solaris-based SAN solutions also enables the companies to offer our customers a more extensive storage alternative for volume hardware platforms than Windows and Linux."
