LSI Logic Corp. announced that its Engenio 4Gbps Fibre Channel technology has been selected to power the next generation of data warehousing products offered by Teradata, a division of NCR Corp.

According to the press release, the new RoHS compliant Teradata data warehousing products will be powered by the XBB architecture developed by LSI, providing Teradata customers with the storage configuration flexibility to meet the performance demands of both current and future server nodes.

"LSI and Teradata have collaborated to deliver our latest family of feature rich storage solutions tailored to meet the demands of our users' data warehousing applications," said Randy Lea, vice president of product and services for Teradata Marketing.

With the evolution of the NCR family of Fibre Channel arrays, the Engenio 6998 storage system will serve as the core of the new high-end NCR 6843 Enterprise Storage Array solution.

Both of the new NCR arrays will feature the Engenio FC4600 drive module for increased storage density.
