Some interesting reading for Mac folks here on Enterprise Storage Forum. It seems now that Macs are a hot property in the enterprise, a raft of storage vendors are looking to get in on the action.
EMC, HP, Iron Mountain and others all showed up at Macworld this week with new Apple-friendly products. Among the goodies are a new version of the Retrospect backup and recovery system from EMC, and the new MediaSmart Server ex485/ex487 from HP.
Those and other systems are looking to take advantage of the automated storage features found in the Leopard operating system, namely the Time Machine file management system and the Time Capsule peripheral system. There's also the fact that Apple is a favorite among video professionals and other heavy data users who are always on the lookout for more storage.
Of course, the long-time Mac partners aren't sitting still either. Promise Technology, which now runs Apple's former storage unit, introduced 1 TB hard drives for the VTrak E-Class RAID subsystem.
