Exabyte launches storage software

Network backup systems vendor Exabyte has announced the launch of its NetStorM Resource Manager software, a browser-based package that allows remote management of all devices on a NetStorM network storage or storage area network architecture. The software automatically detects devices manufactured by Exabyte and its partners, collects information from these devices such as configuration, status, error reporting, and displays the information on a single console to allow single-source finetuning of devices and simplifying the entire network manage- ment process. NetStorM Resource Management software is available now. Distributors are 1World, Alepine Peripherals and Datastor.http://www.exabyte.comLucent Technologies announces WaveLANNetworking solutions provider Lucent Technologies has announced a new WaveLAN wireless local area network that is compliant with the latest 802.11b High Rate (HR) standard.
