Dynamic Network Factory today introduced its new StorMacX product line consisting of two new enterprise storage systems designed to augment Apple's easy-to-use Xserve RAID platform with advanced storage functionality at a cost-effective price. DNF has also announced a partnership with Bell Microproducts Inc. (Nasdaq: BELM), one of the world's largest value-added distributors of storage and computing technology, to offer the StorMacX line through Bell Microproducts' network of more than 1,300 independent Apple-authorized resellers across the U.S.

"DNF's StorMacX gives Apple business customers the enterprise storage capabilities that they need -- such as advanced synchronous mirroring, replication, storage provisioning, clustering and 10G Ethernet connectivity – in two flexible solutions that support heterogeneous environments," said Mo Tahmasebi, CEO of DNF. "We are very pleased to be joining forces with Bell Microproducts to leverage their long history of storage expertise as well as their strong Apple reseller network to make a big impact with StorMacX.”

The two StorMacX products consist of the StorMacXi100, a unified network attached storage (NAS) and iSCSI system that supports up to 30TB of storage and three Xserve RAID devices; and the StorMacX i4000S/i4000D, which supports up to 100TB of storage and 10 Xserve RAID devices.

"With StorMacX, DNF builds upon the strengths of Apple's Xserve RAID by adding value that will appeal to tier one and tier two organizations in traditional IT and scientific markets," said Gary Gammon, senior vice president of marketing, enterprise products for Bell Microproducts. "In addition, StorMacX is a fraction of the cost of alternative storage solutions, which makes it a great offering for our resellers."

IntraServe Systems, a San Jose-based certified network integrator and Apple-authorized reseller, is now evaluating the StorMacX products. According to George Massoud, president and CEO of IntraServe, StorMacX fills a market void. "StorMacX was easy to set up and deploy in our OS X environment, allowing us to leverage the Xserve RAID platform, while providing all the advanced functionality that Apple business customers are now demanding," he said.

DNF's StorMacX is now available, through Bell Microproducts, starting at $22,000 for a 10TB configuration.
