The 14,000+ square foot center, the largest independent storage networking complex in the world, will support the SNIA by providing testing laboratories as well as educational and training facilities. The center will also facilitate the gathering of work groups to progress the study, development and recommendation of storage standards to the appropriate standards bodies.

On an ongoing basis, Legato intends to utilize the state of the art facilities to evaluate enterprise storage systems, and participate in work-groups and activities related to advancing the state of storage technology through open, standards-based solutions.

In the Extended Copy SAN demonstration, Legato will showcase NetWorker 6.0.1, Celestra Power 1.5, and its newly released Celestra Module for Oracle in collaboration with today's leading storage vendors to deliver live, serverless, LAN-free database protection utilizing the Extended Copy protocol embedded in SAN devices.

In the Storage over WAN solution demonstration, NetWorker and GEMS SmartMedia will be showcased demonstrating the ability to achieve advanced data protection with maximum utilization of library resources through dynamic drive sharing, in a SAN/WAN connected environment.
