Intransa Inc, the global provider of end-to-end native IP SAN solutions, is experiencing a steep rise in demand for its IP SAN solutions throughout the Asia-Pacific Region and India.

What is driving this demand is the IP5000 systems' ability to deliver an enterprise-class SAN environment at a fraction of the cost and complexity of fibre channel SANs and its superior performance and scalability over NAS.

According to Vinay Khargonkar, assistant general manager IT, Larsen & Toubro, Hazira Works, "Flexibility, easy manageability and low TCO is what made the Intransa IP SAN solution an attractive proposition for us. We can now easily service the demand for additional storage by simply adding additional storage or controller modules to the Ethernet network."

"Native IP SANs truly represent the third wave of storage and will play a key role in helping organizations implement new age services like remote data replication, disaster recovery and video-on-demand services," predicts Dr. Avi Katz, president and chief executive officer, Intransa.

The Intransa IP SAN solution is a modular, native to the network IP-based block-storage (Storage Area Network) array from 2TB up to 48TB raw capacity. Intransa delivers the IP SAN with enterprise class features in a cost effective, scalable, and easy-to-setup network storage solution that costs pennies per megabyte, the company said.

Peter Wang, founder and CTO, Intransa, observed, "Our IP SAN solution delivers a cost-effective, quickly deployable, and easily managed networked storage environment that makes the benefits of SANs practical for entry-level and mid-tier enterprise applications and for expansion of high end ones. By transforming the way networked storage systems are designed, we have been able to extend the benefits of SAN technology to customers who previously may not have deployed SAN solutions due to their high cost and complexity."

IP SANs, according to International Data Corporation, are expected to garner more than 25 percent of the global storage market by 2007
