Maginatics Joins Cisco Developer Network as Registered Developer

Enterprise storage company Maginatics has joined the Cisco (News - Alert) Developer Network (CDN) as a registered developer within the Cisco Cloud Intelligent Network technology category. Cisco’s developer program is designed to provide resources that help accelerate development and time to market for the developer.

In addition, Maginatics’ MagFS Version 1.5 has completed interoperability testing with Cisco Cloud Connector Hosting, Cisco UCS-E Series. Last fall, the Mountain View, Calif.-based company rolled out the latest version of its MagFS storage software platform, which is designed to provide greater back end storage and mobile access options for its customers.

Company officials said that as a registered developer with Cisco’s Developer Network, Maginatics offers a complementary product and is collaborating with Cisco so customers can quickly deploy a myriad of Cisco Compatible business applications, devices, or services that can enhance the capabilities, performance, and management of their Cisco network.

The Cisco Developer Network brings together Cisco with third-party developers of hardware and software to deliver tested interoperable solutions to joint customers. CDN members have to meet and maintain several requirements in order to determine participation level in Cisco’s program.  

MagFS integrates with HP Cloud Services Object Storage, Rackspace (News - Alert) Cloud Files, Microsoft Azure, Telecom Italia Data Space and AT&T Synaptic Storage as a Service, augmenting previously announced support for Amazon Web Services S3.

On the backend, MagFS is designed to make the level of data security and IT control independent of whether data is stored in the cloud, on premise, or both, according to Jay Kistler, CTO of Maginatics.

For enterprises and service providers building their own private or public cloud, MagFS also integrates with EMC (News - Alert) Atmos and OpenStack Object Storage (Swift), two leading object-based storage offerings.
