On August 10, 2011, MPSTOR and EchoStreams announced a partnership designed to bring a number of services and solutions to cloud and data center users. The resulting architecture, which is largely based upon MPStackware, MPSTOR’s storage management software, and EchoStreams’ hardware platforms, are projected to enable enterprises to construct highly scalable, cost-efficient infrastructure to assist with both server and storage OEMs.

“EchoStreams’ unique off-the-shelf hardware platforms are a perfect complement to our open platform storage management software,” said MPSTOR CEO Tony McEnroe. “Our combined offering helps automate data centers and deliver process improvements designed to improve service quality and produce real savings.”

EchoStreams offers a variety of standards-based, purpose-built service and storage platforms which can be purchased as off-the-shelf solutions. Its product family is application specific and includes OEM appliance-builder enclosure solutions, data center platforms, storage platforms as well as server-storage and Flash-based caching appliance platforms.

Such products can work in tandem with the open-API, open-platform architecture provided by MPSTOR’s MPStackware, which is a storage solution with plenty of flexibility and options for integration with third-party applications and support for a variety of plug-ins, host interconnects, disk protocols and media types.

"MPSTOR and EchoStreams are providing custom data center compute node and storage solutions based on open standards that are specifically designed to drive costs down,” said Brian Garett, vice president of Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) Labs. “Their combined software and hardware solutions play a critical role for enterprises dedicated to offering attractive and affordable data center and cloud services."
