QLogics SANblade, QLA4010 and QLA4040, announced last fall, are gradually gaining industry support. They are already certified for Mountain View, Calif.-based Legato Systems Inc.s Networker 7.0 backup software, officials said. For now, Veritas, also of Mountain View, specifically chose to iSCSI-enable its Backup Exec 9.0 software first, because midrange storage is expected to gain customer traction before high-end storage, where Fibre Channel is entrenched, a spokesman said.
Veritas support for its high-end NetBackup software will come soon, officials added.
