NSS taps GTSI for federal focus

Network Storage Solutions Inc. on Monday announced an agreement that will

help the company market its products to GTSI Corp.'s government clients.

GTSI, a business-to-government marketer of information technology solutions,

has the customer base and experience in the public sector that NSS was looking

for in a partner, said Brad Clemmons, president and chief executive officer

of the Chantilly, Va.-based NSS, a provider of network-attached storage

devices.

"We never really had a focus on the federal government before," Clemmons

said. "Our business there — with NASA, the U.S. courts and intelligence

agencies — sought us out. But this is our first attempt to market in the

federal government space."

Under the agreement, GTSI and NSS will work cooperatively to co-market

NSS products to GTSI's government clients. Clemmons said agencies may now

purchase NSS' Thunderbolt network storage solution from GTSI's contracts — NASA's Scientific and Engineering Workstation Procurement (SEWP-II) contract

and the National Institutes of Health's Electronic Computer Store (ECS-II)

contract.

Thunderbolt is an ultrahigh-density network storage system for midsize

enterprises and service providers that supports up to 8 terabytes of storage

in a 19-inch rack. The product helps reduce the cost and complexity of storage,

installation and management in Unix, Linux and Microsoft Corp. operating

environments.

In addition to making them available on the SEWP and ECS contracts,

NSS is also working on getting its products on the General Services Administration

schedule, Clemmons said.
