Milpitas, CALIF. — LSI Logic Corporation announced the successful demonstration of both SCSI and Fibre Channel storage solutions operating in a Intel Itanium-based prototype system at the Fall COMDEX held on November 13-16, 2000 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The demonstration was evidence of LSI Logic’s integral role in the Intel Server Applications Program, which was created by Intel to speed the development of hardware and software products designed to take advantage of the Itanium processor’s capability.
“LSI Logic has been collaborating closely with Intel engineers to ensure that our storage solutions integrate seamlessly with the Itanium architecture and the COMDEX demonstration showed how well our storage products performed on this platform,” said Bill Wuertz, vice president and general manager of LSI Logic’s Storage Components Division. “We’re proud of our association with Intel, and we’ll continue to work with them to ensure that LSI Logic products perform on the production Itanium-based server environments of the near future.”
“LSI Logic has been a strong asset to the Intel Server Applications Program, providing valuable engineering expertise to ensure their storage product migration to the Itanium platform is a smooth one,” said Lisa Hambrick, Intel’s Itanium Processor Family Marketing Manager.
The public demonstration featured LSI Logic’s LSI53C1010 PCI-to-Dual Channel Ultra160 SCSI controller and the company’s LSIFC909 PCI-to-Fibre Channel SCSI controller communicating with a new Intel Itanium-based software development platform through an LSI Logic SCSI Bus Expander. The development platform ran in a Linux64 environment.
