Precise Updates StorageCentral SRM

Precise Software Solutions' storage resource management software was updated this week to support Network Appliance filers, greatly increasing Precise's access to the network-attached storage market.

The NetApp support is the sole new feature in Precise/StorageCentral SRM 5.1. Precise, meanwhile, is being acquired by storage software giant Veritas in a deal that is expected to close this quarter.

According to Precise officials, SRM's previous penetration into the NAS market was limited to Windows-based NAS devices, which accounted for about 18 percent of the overall NAS market, according to IDC data for 2001. The same IDC report shows NetApp with about 36 percent of the overall NAS market, giving Precise access to a much larger group of customers.

The NetApp support in SRM 5.1 grew out of a strategic alliance that the two companies formed in 2001.
