Cloverleaf and NetApp Complete Interoperability Testing

Woodbury, NY - January 17, 2006 -- Cloverleaf Communications, the first company to deliver Quality of Service (QoS) for heterogeneous storage networks and Network Appliance, the leader in advanced networked storage solutions, today announced the completion of interoperability testing between Cloverleaf's Intelligent Storage Networking™ (iSN™) System and the NetApp® FAS200, FAS3000, and FAS900 unified storage systems supporting NAS, SAN, and iSCSI.

NetApp and Cloverleaf interoperability builds on the success the two companies are having satisfying customers' needs throughout the storage network. In both SAN and NAS configurations, end users can expand beyond their current install base and leverage the benefits of both NetApp storage solutions and Cloverleaf's iSN systems. Mutual customers can now centrally manage heterogeneous, multi-tier vendor agnostic storage networks; centrally manage, monitor and consolidate capacity, bandwidth and services; and provide any-to-any data migration and replication.

"The completion of interoperability testing is an important milestone for our two companies' products," said Joseph Klein, COO and co-founder of Cloverleaf. "The NetApp RAID-DP™ storage architecture combined with Cloverleaf's iSN intelligence and Quality of Service (QoS) enables end users to experience non-disruptive advanced storage solutions and amplifies visibility and configurability at any level - file, LUN, and volume."

"The interoperability between both NetApp and Cloverleaf provides yet another layer of simplicity, functionality and value that customers demand," said Patrick Rogers, vice president of Partner Marketing at Network Appliance. "Cloverleaf and the NetApp enterprise storage architecture are well aligned, enabling customers to scale their data centers and storage infrastructures to match dynamic changes in their business."
