Legato Systems Inc, Palo Alto, California, last week signed several partnerships to bolster its network storage management offerings. A technology licensing and marketing agreement with Eastman Kodak Co subsidiary Imagery Software will result in a hierarchical storage management application for NetWorker for NetWare, and Legato will resell Imagery’s NetWare Directory Services-aware GroupStore HSM technology beginning next quarter. Imagery will deliver a version of GroupStore NetWorker for NetWare in the first quarter of 1996. Legato will deliver a hierarchical storage management option for its NetWorker for Unix line in the first quarter of next year. Legato is negotiating licensing agreements for NetWorker HSM with its OEM customers. Tivoli Systems Inc and Legato are also jointly developing a Tivoli/Plus module for NetWorker that will integrate Legato’s network storage management for multi-system enterprises with Tivoli’s systems management environment. It is planned for delivery next quarter. Legato and SAP AG have agreed to provide back-up and recovery services for SAP R/3 under Solaris and AIX. Legato has also licensed its Archive Source Code to OEM customers for NetWorker.
