CONVERGENET JOINS LEGATO IN CELESTRA CONSORTIUM.

ConvergeNet Technologies, Inc., a developer of a new class of data storage management solutions that enable fibre channel Storage Area Networks (SAN), has become a member of the Celestra Consortium.

The Celestra Consortium, founded by Legato Systems, provides a forum whereby open technology adoption is facilitated, and integration efficiency is enhanced. Enterprise and Internet customers with large, dynamic storage environments will benefit from ConvergeNet's intelligent purpose built solutions that optimize heterogeneous storage investments.

"Membership in the Celestra Consortium supports our strategy of addressing storage management problems through the incorporation of intelligence in the SAN," said Dick Watts, president and CEO of ConvergeNet. "The Celestra-based serverless backup solution that ConvergeNet and Legato will jointly deliver is just one of many storage management solutions that will benefit from more intelligence in the SAN."

"In the long run, one intelligent SAN infrastructure will serve all storage needs in heterogeneous environments," said Richard L. Ptak, VP, Systems and Applications Management for the Hurwitz Group, "Serverless backup is the first among many 'back office' services that will leverage intelligence in the SAN to make administrators' jobs easier."

"With industry experts like ConvergeNet joining the Consortium, we will work together to make managing data quickly and efficiently throughout an entire enterprise a reality for customers," said Paul JJ Payack, Legato's vice president of worldwide marketing.

About Legato Celestra

Legato's Celestra is an open, distributed architecture that optimizes data movement efficiency in SAN environments. Data movement is performed by an intelligent SAN device that complies with the open standard SCSI Extended Copy specification developed by the Storage Networking Industry Association.

Data movement intelligence is provided by Legato Celestra agents, enabling powerful applications such as serverless, outboard backup that eliminates the backup window. Control is provided by Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP)-compliant control applications such as Legato NetWorker. This open standards approach means maximum customer ROI and operational efficiency.
