Enterprise Storage Market Target of Xiotech

Companies like Dell, EMC, NetApp, IBM and HDS just don't get it, according to Xiotech, the storage spinoff of Seagate. When it comes to virtualization, the intelligence needs to be in the applications. Xiotech offers intelligent application storage.

Seagate-spinoff Xiotech says storage vendors focusing on adding management software -- i.e. Dell, EMC, HDS, HP, IBM and NetApp -- don't understand that virtualization has changed the game; the intelligence needs to be in the applications.
A privately held company based in Eden Prairie, Minn., Xiotech Corp. wants to solve the growing application/storage conflict with what it calls the market's first and only solution for intelligent application storage.
Originally spun off from Seagate, the company believes that storage vendors focusing on adding management software-- i.e. Dell, EMC, HDS, HP, IBM and NetApp -- don't understand that virtualization has changed the game. Rather than adding another layer of complexity and compatibility requirements, the intelligence needs to be in the applications.
This week it has announced the CorteX API and a turn-key, scale-out, network-attached storage solution -- ISE NAS -- that pairs Xiotech's Intelligent Storage Element (ISE) blades with Symantec's FileStore for file-based data management and protection.
