Siemens Nixdorf hopes to bolster its presence in the storage market, with two deals announced this week.
It is to bundle Computer Associates' (CA) storage management products on its Primergy servers, and plans to resell StorageTek's tape archiving products.
"Customers are becoming increasingly cognisant of the value of their data - so protection of that is a critical component of every technology solution we sell," said Bernd Puschendorf, vice president of marketing for Siemens Nixdorf's open enterprise computing division.
The CA agreement will see Siemens Nixdorf put the software firm?s ARCserve technology on its Intel-based Primergy servers. ARCserve provides back-up, archiving, data replication, migration, and management services.
Siemens Nixdorf will also OEM StorageTek's tape archiving products through its worldwide sales network, including its automated cartridge systems for mainframes, Unix, and Windows NT platforms.
