Affordable IP SAN solution will leverage MegaRAID(R) data protection

MILPITAS, Calif., July 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- LSI Logic Corporation (NYSE: LSI) today announced a licensing agreement with PyX Technologies (Nasdaq: SBEI), which will allow LSI Logic to bring a cost-effective, intelligent iSCSI MegaRAID(R) solution to entry-level and mid-range servers and external IP SAN (Storage Area Network) environments.

"By collaborating with PyX Technologies, we discovered opportunities to leverage our industry-leading storage adapter family, and provide users with an affordable IP SAN solution offering superior data protection," said Ken Zarrabi, senior strategic marketing manager for the LSI Logic RAID Storage Adapter division.
