SGI have announced an OEM with BlueArc, to rebadge and resell their Mercury storage systems. SGI join luminaries like HDS, who also resell BlueArc’s gear. When it comes to high speed NAS, BlueArc supply some of the fastest gear there is – this is a good fit for SGI.

Under the agreement, SGI will extend its existing suite of storage solutions with BlueArc Mercury powering its new InfiniteStorage NAS 50 and InfiniteStorage NAS 100 platforms.

What will be interesting to see is how SGI will integrate BlueArc’s NAS with their existing Infinite Storage line. Will they introduce a single point of management, or will it remain with a separate management interface.
