American Megatrends President and CEO Subramonian Shankar commented: "We are extremely pleased to mark this important milestone of 1,000 installations of StorTrends appliances. It is great to see that so many customers are realizing the value and performance that StorTrends provides, and we look forward to the next 1,000 installs and beyond."

Taneja Group Sr. Storage Analyst Jeff Boles noted that "StorTrends may not have the name recognition of some of the larger storage vendors, but they definitely have the technology. It's a very interesting value proposition. The parent company, AMI, developed RAID cards in 1994 that became the market standard. They also own the largest market share in BIOS through the AMIBIOS product line. That deep engineering history can be seen in StorTrends."

American Megatrends Director of Sales, Justin Bagby, added "Achieving this milestone would not be possible without our StorTrends Partners. AMI would like to thank all of our Channel Partners for their key involvement in reaching this milestone. AMI is 100% committed to the channel and serving our Channel Partners to help further grow StorTrends."
