Granite 2.5 software now supports 90 percent of enterprise-class storage arrays with the addition of Fibre Channel to its existing iSCSI support. Granite 2.5 also improves data protection with automated snapshots and simplified support for existing data-center class backup and recovery software. The performance of Granite 2.5 can be further enhanced with the addition of the new Steelhead EX 1360 model appliance. The Steelhead EX 1360 model appliance offers enterprises greater capacity and performance for consolidating larger data stores back to the data center. This allows IT managers to extend the benefits of Granite to their larger branch offices or to offices that are data intensive. Granite 2.5 and the Steelhead EX 1360 model appliance together deliver an enterprise-class solution for server and data consolidation that allows organizations to deploy any application to any location with high performance and reliability.
