IceWeb wins Iplicity Storage Contract from Federal Agency

To provide Iplicity Unified Storage Platform to support Unix environment

By CBR Staff Writer

IceWEB, which manufactures and markets purpose built appliances, network and cloud attached storage platform, said that it has been awarded a contract by a Federal Agency to provide its Iplicity Unified Storage Platform to support Unix environment. The initial award is for a storage area network providing more than 100 terabytes of disk capacity, and will enable the Agency to capture and archive log data.

Tim McNamee, VP of Federal Channels, said that the system will provide both fibre channel attached host and NFS NAS (network attached storage) capabilities to the Agency and the initial deployment has the potential to grow in size to a petabyte (1000 terabytes) of storage in the short-term.

Gary Dunham, SVP of product development and engineering at IceWEB, said: The performance, management features and pricing of the Iplicity platform made it a compelling and cost effective solution for this customer. In the case of this Federal Agency, it made perfect sense to augment their existing storage infrastructure with Iplicity. The feature sets built into Iplicity, all of which were critical to this agency, would have cost them more than our entire solution were they to have purchased them from their legacy storage vendor.

Earlier in September, IceWeb has been awarded a contract by a Federal Agency to provide its Iplicity Unified Storage Platform to support a VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) deployment.
