TRUESAN BECOMES BROCADE FABRIC ACCESS PARTNER.

TrueSAN Networks, Inc. (www.truesan.com) has become a Brocade Fabric Access Partner. With this alliance, TrueSAN gains access to the Brocade Fabric Access API (application programming interface), Brocade development support, and the extensive Brocade SAN interoperability labs. As a Fabric Access partner, TrueSAN can deliver advanced SAN management technology for Brocade SilkWorm fabric switches and will also cooperate with Brocade on solution testing and qualification.

"This alliance enables enterprises with Brocade SANs to use TrueSAN's Cloudbreak Storage Operating System to maximize the ROI benefits of their storage networks," stated Tom Isakovich, President and CEO of TrueSAN. "Becoming a Brocade Fabric Access Partner is the first of many alliances that TrueSAN has forged with industry-leading storage vendors to deliver an end-to-end platform for managing heterogeneous storage infrastructures."

TrueSAN's Cloudbreak solution represents the first Storage Operating System: a comprehensive, network-based platform for managing heterogeneous storage networks. Unlike single-purpose utilities, Cloudbreak represents a unique solution: a software suite that combines essential storage management technology (storage virtualization, storage network and device management, storage resource management, business continuance applications, and policy management) in a single, integrated solution. TrueSAN's end-to-end approach to storage management enables customers to more quickly reduce storage management costs and more effectively capitalize on the benefits of storage networking. Cloudbreak's storage network and device management technology leverages the Brocade Fabric Access API to provide seamless monitoring, management, and performance analysis of Brocade SilkWorm fabric switches within the Cloudbreak environment.

"We are pleased to welcome TrueSAN as a Brocade Fabric Access partner," said Jay Kidd, Brocade Vice President of Product Marketing. "Products such as TrueSAN's Cloudbreak help simplify and enhance storage area network management. Through the Brocade Fabric Access API, TrueSAN can leverage the advanced fabric services available in Brocade SANs, enabling powerful management capabilities that allow customers to leverage the value of their storage network infrastructure."

Brocade makes the intelligence in the Brocade fabric available to key partners through the Fabric Access API. Brocade fabric switches are based on the Brocade Fabric Operating System (Fabric OS), which is an intelligent, distributed operating system for Brocade fabrics. The Brocade Fabric OS provides a feature-rich platform for SAN-designed applications and offers advanced features for proactive SAN management and monitoring, enabling applications to dynamically discover physical components in a SAN and monitor fabric resources.

TrueSAN Networks, Inc., based in San Jose, California, and backed by over $30 million in private funding, has developed a comprehensive, platform-independent solution for enterprise storage management. TrueSAN's revolutionary storage operating system, known as Cloudbreak, simplifies the management of the storage infrastructure to reduce cost, increase productivity, maximize efficiency, and extend the ROI of existing storage investments. TrueSAN's open platform for storage and data management enables enterprises to immediately capitalize on the strategic, financial, and operational benefits of storage networking.
