"ServerEngines' vision of high-performance iSCSI storage systems based on industry-standard servers aligns with our vision," said Lee Caswell, founder and EVP Business Development at Pivot3. "The fast-refresh cycles of industry- standard servers merged with our RAIGE distributed RAID and virtualization software, and the state-of-the-art iSCSI target hardware and firmware from ServerEngines promise a high-performance, low-cost platform that sets the direction for storage systems in the future."

"Pivot3's RAIGE software combined with our 10 Gigabit Ethernet iSCSI Target platform on industry standard servers will make high-performance storage accessible to a much broader market," said Raju Vegesna, president and CEO of ServerEngines. "The RAIGE OS's virtual RAID controllers and RAIGE Director's GUI running on our fully offloaded BladeEngine iSCSI target hardware will enable a unified networking and storage fabric on 10 Gigabit Ethernet."
