JNI and Sun Enter OEM Agreement for Sun Storage Environments


October 17, 2002

JNI Corporation inked an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with Sun Microsystems to supply Fibre Channel host bus adapters (HBAs).

The OEM agreement spans the family of JNI FibreStar products, including single- and dual-port Fibre Channel HBAs with PCI bus, SBus, and CompactPCI bus connections, operating at 1 GB and 2 GB speeds.

"We selected JNI because of their experience with Sun's Solaris Operating Environment and the benefits we think it can provide to supporting our customer's business and technical requirements," said Tim Pawloski, general manager of strategic systems alliances for Sun Microsystems. "This enables Sun to provide its customers with improved support and lead times for its Sun StorEdge 9900 series storage systems."
