Avere Systems Joins TSANet for Multivendor Interoperability

As storage needs heat up, so does the need for interoperability among various storage components. Avere Systems is on board with that ethos, which is why the company has joined the Technical Support Alliance Network, making an interoperability promise with its NAS devices. A quick rundown follows …

If you’re unfamiliar with the Technical Support Alliance Network (TSANet — no relation to those fine folks at the airport), it essentially is an arbiter of “vendor-neutral infrastructure” cooperation. TSANet member vendors work with other members to ensure their products play nice with each other. Should a problem arise, members are obligated to mutually fix any interoperability problems.

The overarching idea is that more interoperability ensures happy customers who can use a variety of products across the entire TSANet community. Avere Systems has added its NAS devices to the list, notably the FXT Series of NAS devices which we covered back in April 2011. For a little refresher, Avere Systems’s FXT-NAS features virtualization and global name-space capabilities, in addition to widely scalable storage clustering with branch office and cloud support. When VARs and customers alike want to deploy an integrated approach, Avere Systems now is on the list of vendors happy to work within heterogeneous storage environments.

We’ll be sure to check out any new TSANet members to let VARs who are working with multiple vendors know which combination of solutions are best for them.
