Xiotech notches a win with Emprise

First order for “black box” storage takes it beyond demoware

Xiotech was the Belle of the Ball at Storage Networking World with their demo of ISE technology.  Much more significant is that customers are starting to do more than kick the tires.  Evidence: an honest-to-goodness order for ISE-based Emprise systems from Argus Information & Advisory Services.

I saw some early private screenings of this technology.  It’s special because it breaks the conventional rules of storage devices and systems.  That allows Xiotech to create the “how did they do that?” specs and support commitments that have been generating such a buzz. Not to mention the benefits of its simplicity.

Let’s see how they do with the next major milestone: volume production.
