Hewlett-Packard is offering users a new vision of storage for the Internet age, under the brand name Federated Storage Area Management (FSam), writes Nicholas Enticknap

HP's storage marketing manager Matthew Harding explained, "We have moved from having non-proprietary storage that was not managed, to having storage that is managed but in a proprietary way. To manage both, you need Federated Storage Area Management."

FSam is unique in catering for server-attached and platform-shared storage as well as network-attached storage and storage area networks (San). "We endorse them all. They all co-exist They all have a place," said Harding.

FSam covers all types of storage from tape and optical discs to the whole range of magnetic discs.

HP's FSam launch also included a new mid-range disc subsystem, a raft of storage management software, and bundled offerings under the name Network Storage Appliance.

Network Storage Appliance is a range of Windows-based networked storage solutions comprising hardware, back-up, storage management software and support services. The aim of the range is to help companies get Sans up and running quickly.
