Sun-STK Integration Solution
Sun-StorageTek (Sun-STK) wanted to find new opportunities for their cartridge
tape drives and robotic storage solutions. So they came to FCI.
They needed a lot more than your basic developer kind of consultant. They wanted
a "soup-to-nuts" project performance -- from design to implementation to training
to documentation. We did that.
Our experienced developers helped them expand into new markets. FCI integrated Sun-STK's
existing technology with both of the Unisys mainframe platforms (2200 and A-Series),
enabling them to deliver a new product to new customers. We created the Client System
Component (CSC) application that provides controlling communications between the
Unisys mainframe and Sun-STK's robotic tape silo.
FCI still maintains this more-than-15-year relationship, not only enhancing and
upgrading the original CSC product, but also developing new products in the realm
of tape storage and retrieval. FCI's hand in the game remains large today, providing
support to Sun-STK's customers on a 24/7 basis.
