SAN DIEGO -- Storage Networking World -- Intel and EMC today said the chip maker will sell EMC's SANs for SMBs through an OEM deal.

Intel has sold its chips in storage systems and dabbled in networked storage with low-end unbranded SANs made from cheap parts, or "white box" systems. But the EMC partnership significantly steps up its storage profile. Intel will brand EMC's new AX150 Fibre Channel and AX150i iSCSI SANs as the Intel SSR21PP.

The announcement comes one

MANHASSET, N.Y. — IBM scientists have developed a new technique, called spin-excitation spectroscopy, to explore and control magnetism at its fundamental atomic level.

The method promises to be important not only in the quest to understand the operation of future computer circuit and data-storage elements as they shrink toward atomic dimensions, but also to lay the foundation for new materials and computing devices that leverage atom-scale magnetic phenomena.

"We have developed a window into the atomic heart of magnetism," said Andreas Heinrich,
