ONStor's Federal Partner Program provides resellers and system integrators that sell to the federal government with special discounts, training, installation, and accreditation services that enable them to support and sell ONStor's award-winning scalable clustered NAS solutions. The ideal partners for the program have contract vehicles in place with the federal government and a strong agency focus, as well as deep enterprise networking and storage experience. Through this program, resellers have the opportunity to receive more sales leads and gain broad support from all ONStor sales and technical resources, as well as generate a strong business proposition on every sale.

"We have a solid reseller customer base and look forward to developing that same level of commitment with resellers that service federal government accounts," said Tom Gallivan, senior vice president, worldwide sales of ONStor. "Because of its open storage architecture and ability to integrate in any storage environment, we believe our NAS solution hits a sweet spot that currently isn't being served in the government market. Our products offer customers investment protection and present a tremendous opportunity for resellers to increase margins and demonstrate a solid ROI while growing their storage business."

"We recognized right away that ONStor's unique NAS technology would be a great complement to our customers' current requirements for consolidation, virtualization and overall space reduction," said Jeff Sessions, vice president, sales of Red River Computer Company, Inc. "The ONStor products have extremely attractive power-saving features that play an integral role in controlling energy consumption in the data center. Red River Computer Company has been assisting our government clients with their IT needs for over 10 years, specifically around optimization and acceleration of applications and data to the end user community. ONStor fits very nicely into our overall strategy and customer focus."

ONStor Bobcat Clustered NAS Gateways and Pantera Series Clustered NAS solutions are designed with n-way clustering, virtual file servers and single pool storage built-in to deliver the simplest most efficient storage solution on the market today. ONStor's NAS products also offer file virtualization (global namespace), remote replication, thin provisioning, and storage tiering. These features add up to a storage solution that is extremely energy efficient with power savings up to 95 percent compared to traditional direct- attached and networked storage environments, and provides the ideal platform for end-to-end virtualized environments such as those leveraging VMware. ONStor products offer new business opportunities for channel partners looking for "green" solutions to help reduce power consumption in their customers' data centers. ONStor's solutions are deployed in enterprise data centers across all industries including geo-spatial mapping, medical imaging, oil/gas, and Web 2.0 companies that produce data sets that range from very large image files to smaller user files.
