Mobile application security vulnerability report

Siemens Nixdorf (SNI) is to start to OEM-ing the IBM range of Magstar tape storage products. An agreement signed this week will mean SNI becomes the first OEM partner to gain access to the whole IBM Magstar range. IBM has been supplying storage products to SNI for the last 10 years under different OEM agreements; the existing Magstar OEM deal covers the 3590 model only. This latest agreement will also see the two companies collaborate on the development of a tape subsystem controller for IBM 3490 Model F channel-attached tape products. The controller device will be supplied by SNI to IBM. IBM Data Technology Group vice president, Dr James Vanderslice, said the deal was a crucial part of IBM's attempts to expand the market for its storage devices. "This agreement is especially important in that it validates our Seascape vision to promote the increased use of IBM storage solutions on non-IBM platforms. Part of that vision, which is currently underway, will be to enable Siemens Nixdorf to offer its customers IBM's enhanced Virtual Tape Server," he said. ®
