Ten industry players joined Sun Microsystems' Sun StorageTek Ready platform. The community focuses to expand storage technology adoption for both Sun and its partners while "promoting trusted environments for customers, as well as to drive meaningful, results-oriented collaboration, seamless solution delivery and the development of joint business opportunities."

Inaugural members in the StorageTek Ready platform, which is built on the Sun Partner Advantage program, include BakBone Software, Brocade, Dot Hill, EMC, Hitachi, HP, LSI Logic, McData, Oracle and Symantec.

"The StorageTek Ready platform is ultimately about making it easier for customers to make technology decisions," said Douglas Murray, executive director of global alliances at Sun Microsystems. "Membership in this elite group assures customers they can be confident we are working extensively together to meet their needs--through interoperability testing, access to technical resources, information exchange and cooperative support."

As StorageTek Ready members, participating companies become part of Sun's StorageTek Ready Advisory Board. The board will provide input on solutions the companies will bring to market and new ways to develop the StorageTek Ready brand and engage in mutually beneficial go-to-market activities.

Moreover, members gain access to marketing tools, community collaboration forums, Sun beta products, technical resources and information and Sun's StorageTek Ready lab facility to ensure seamless integration with Sun technologies.

All members of the Sun StorageTek Ready Platform participate in the Sun Partner Advantage program at the principal or executive levels. As Sun Partner Advantage program members, these companies have all committed to porting their applications to the Solaris 10 OS.
