The first Seagate Server Appliance Solution, scheduled to be available this summer, provides scalable storage and reliable data protection for ISPs and ASPs. The Seagate Server Appliance Solution enables ISPs and ASPs to generate incremental revenue through “vending” storage and data protection applications to their small and medium-sized customers. Through the agreement, Seagate is granted complete access to Cobalt’s large installed base of worldwide customers, including over 1,000 ISPs. The agreement provides Seagate the opportunity to utilize Cobalt’s third party developer program for application development on the Seagate server appliances. Applications that will be developed on the Seagate server appliance will also be available for the Cobalt platform.
