Feb 24, 2000, 19:41 (0 Talkback[s])

"Procom Technology, a leading manufacturer of server appliances and pioneer in the development of Network Attached Storage (NAS) technology, today announced that the next step in its NAS strategy will be the deployment of an enhanced version of its existing Linux-based storage-centric operating systems (OS) for use in future NAS appliances."

"Procom intends to make these Linux-based appliances a critical part of customers' enterprise storage strategies by encouraging third-party Linux storage application companies to embrace the Linux storage-centric OS as their development platform for a new generation of NAS-enabled storage management software products. This will greatly enhance customer value and return on investment (ROI) of Procom's NAS technology."

"Procom was one of the earliest supporters of Linux, having used Linux as the basis of its NAS development for the past five years. During this period Procom has continually upgraded the Linux-based core of its NAS engine to enhance the performance and functionality of its appliances. As a result, Procom has been one of the most successful Linux storage developers, consistently winning editorial awards for its NAS innovations, including a 1999 Product of Year award from Imaging magazine and an Editor's Choice selection in the November 1999 issue of Network Computing for its DataFORCE products."
