BitMicro Networks Inc. will be developing solid state disk-based iSCSI target appliances as a response to the growing demand for a consolidated, interoperable and manageable flash-based network storage solution that is scalable over long distances, provides easy connectivity to SANs, allows shared access for multiple users and handles existing user applications with ease.

The new family of iSCSI target appliances will fuse several dominant standards, Internet Protocol (IP) and Ethernet for networking and SCSI for data storage. According to the company, integrating this solution into existing storage networks allows business enterprises to reap the benefits of SAN without getting bogged down by distance and cost limitations associated with Fiber Channel solutions.

By utilizing the Fiber Channel, Ultra320 SCSI, PATA or SATA versions of the E-Disk solid state flash disk, the iSCSI appliance also creates ruggedized storage capabilities for industrial and military applications, thereby facilitating iSCSI deployment in remote locations and making it easier to consolidate, backup and securely erase mission-critical data recorded from the field.

"iSCSI is revolutionizing data transmission and storage management practices by taking advantage of a widely popular network protocol," commented President Rudy Bruce. "Solid state disks offer the best fit for this technology, bringing secure access to rugged and high performance storage within reach through mature and well understood internetworks."
