Plus: Advanced Digital Information releases integrated disk-to-tape appliance.

Aruba Wireless Networks has secured $20 million in additional venture funding, bringing to $29.5 million the total raised by the year-and-a-half-old wireless LAN switch maker. The company also named Dominic Orr, former head of Alteon WebSystems, as its executive chairman and named a CFO and vice president of worldwide sales and channel operations.

Advanced Digital Information Corp. last week announced an integrated disk-to-tape appliance that lets users determine how they will back up and archive data.

The Pathlight VX is a combination disk- and tape-based array that uses Advanced Technology Attachment drives and LTO1 or LTO2 tape technology. Back-up software sees the device as a single tape library. The Pathlight VX has as much as 40 terabytes of storage capacity and fits in a standard 19-inch rack.

The company plans to ship it next month starting at $190,000.
