This certification ensures that Open Source Storage customers can be confident of complete open network compatibility, functionality and full interoperability in enterprise class Sun Microsystems™ computing environments.

Powers, Senior Director, ISV Engineering, Sun Microsystems, Inc. “With certification on Solaris 10, Open Source Storage customers can be assured that OSVault™ Network Archive appliances have met the rigorous testing requirements of the Solaris Ready Program, and that Open Source Storage is dedicated to providing long-term support to its end-users."
