NextIO Wins Chinese OEM

Austin-based I/O virtualization equipment provider NextIO said this morning that it has signed on a Chinese OEm, which will include its VNET I/O Maestro appliance as part of its product portfolio. NextIO did not say how much the deal was worth, but did say it is the second OEM relationship announced by the company since June. Sugon provides servers, storage, security, high performance computing, and cloud computing products in China. NextIO's products are used to virtualize and consolidate I/O, networking, and storage for rackmount servers.
