Medusa Labs - circa 2008

Medusa Labs, a wholly owned subsidiary of Finisar Corporation, is a leading provider of testing and training services for Server, Storage and Networking interfaces and protocols. They are experts in SCSI, iSCSI, InfiniBand, RAID and Fibre Channel. Medusa's engineers helped develop some of the industry's key technologies --such as the Fibre Channel specification -- and continue to have a vigorous passion for improving products and sharing their knowledge. This experience and enthusiasm translate into the highest quality testing and training services possible.

editor's comments:- Medusa Labs was mentioned in a handful of performance related news stories on in the period from 2004 to 2008. The most significant being a validation of Fusion-io's PCIe SSDs in October 2008.

The Medusa Labs business was acquired by JDSU in 2009 and continues to be a brand in JDSU's Performance and Integrity Test business.

Having been a pioneer in PCIe SSD testing - JDSU is still active (in 2015) in PCIe and NVMe Analysis
