Apr 16, 2001, 01:00 ET from SANavigator Inc.

    SAN JOSE, Calif., April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- SANavigator Inc., a leader in
 powerful, heterogeneous SAN management software, will be demonstrating its
 simple, safe and scalable SANavigator(TM) software at NAB2001 beginning
 April 23 in Las Vegas, Nev., at the Sands Convention Center, Booth M8757.
 NAB2001 will mark one of the first public demonstrations of SANavigator
 Version 2.0, the SAN management tool that eliminates the complexity and
 vendor-specific limitations of existing SAN management products.  As part of
 the event, SANavigator Inc. will demonstrate the remote administration of a
 Storage Area Network (SAN) located at the company's headquarters in San Jose,
 Calif.

     "This will be an exciting demonstration of the sophistication and
 simplicity of SANavigator," said Steve Hindman, senior software product
 manager of SANavigator Inc.  "Conference attendees will have the opportunity
 to see how the right SAN management tools make heterogeneous SANs a powerful
 solution for real-world environments."
     SANavigator Version 2.0, like earlier versions of this acclaimed software,
 is a Java-based storage management application that operates as a host for
 other storage management applications, utilities and tools from major storage
 vendors, and includes an Auto Discovery feature that performs a complete
 inventory of all SAN resources.  The SANmap(TM) component of SANavigator
 presents an intuitive visual map of the SAN showing all devices and their
 interconnections.  It allows an administrator to establish new data path
 zoning, create redundant paths and perform other management routines,
 completing with just a few mouse clicks a process that previously took several
 hours.
     Among the most significant additions to this version are the ability to
 monitor the performance of SAN devices and the connections between the
 devices, support for Palm Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), latency test
 capability, and a powerful planning tool that allows integrators and end users
 to plan a SAN, or extensions to an existing SAN, using the SANavigator
 interface.  With SANavigator 2.0, administrators have exceptional freedom in
 choosing the number of clients and server components to install, and in
 selecting the machines on which to install them.  The program's simple
 installation and maintenance process makes storage network management
 exceptionally easy.  SANavigator's powerful new planning tool also enhances
 ease of storage network management.  After completing a storage network plan
 with the renowned SANavigator user interface, the user can turn the plan
 "live," so that SANavigator automatically identifies discrepancies between the
 plan and the live SAN.
