Neterion's 10 Gigabit Ethernet iSCSI Adapter Selected by Intransa for Its New High Performance StorStac System PCU100

Intransa Delivers StorStac Storage System, Industry's First Scalable 10 GbE High-Performance SAN for the Enterprise

CUPERTINO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 7, 2007 -- Neterion, the industry leader in the 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapter market for server and storage environments, today announced Intransa, the global leader of scalable, network-centric IP storage solutions, has selected Neterion's Xframe® 10 GbE adapters for inclusion into its new StorStac Storage System PCU100 10GbE flagship product.

The 10GbE StorStac Storage System PCU100 delivers unprecedented IP scalability and 10 GbE performance for content rich applications such as digital content and streaming data applications including video on-demand, IPTV, digital imaging, video surveillance and data mining.

Neterion's Xframe® II and Xframe® E 10 GbE adapters provide the support for Intransa's StorSac Storage System scalability and performance advantages. Members of the Neterion's V-NIC™ family, each featuring Hyperframe™ technology, are the only line of 10 GbE adapters designed for I/O virtualization from the ground up, allowing end-to-end integration in virtualized environments such as VMware. Xframe II is a PCI-X 2.0 adapter that doubles the data rate of the earlier bus standard (PCI-X 1.0). Xframe E offers PCI-express connectivity, the next-generation I/O bus standard that is rapidly gaining market adoption in storage and server markets. Both products are included in Intransa's StorStac System PCU100 as 10GbE iSCSI host bus adapters (HBAs) on the target side.

"We are extremely pleased to be selected by Intransa as their iSCSI target solution," stated Dave Zabrowski, president and CEO of Neterion. "Intransa's innovative architecture, combined with our market leadership and experience with 10 GbE, will enable data center managers to deploy an IP-based 10 GbE SAN, while preserving the existing investment in their network infrastructure."

"Neterion's technology offers the greatest flexibility and the easiest integration into our IP SAN environment. From a customer benefit standpoint it was a logical choice for inclusion into Intransa's StorStac System PCU100," said Bud Broomhead, president and CEO of Intransa. "Intransa's unique approach provides end users with a smooth transition to 10 GbE, and our partnership with Neterion is the best guarantee for the high performance, high reliability and affordability that our customers are expecting."
