Calif., (April 03, 2003) - DISC Inc. (Nasdaq: DCSR), a manufacturer
of automated solutions for enterprise storage, today announced the
availability of DISCSTOR/nas-HA, a feature-rich advancement to its
current network attached storage solution. The High-Availability
and Clustering features of DISCSTOR/nas-HA allow customers the ability
to combine the speed and performance of hard-disk drives with the
long-term stability and portability of optical storage.
DISCSTOR/nas is a dedicated network attached file server and storage
system that gives users a complete storage and archive solution.
With features such as scalable volume sets and transparent access
to data, users have the flexibility of distributed storage throughout
the enterprise. Data that would otherwise be taken offline, in storage-limited
environments, can be made continuously accessible with DISCSTOR/nas.
Administrators can set up the device to operate as a logical drive
and can control simultaneous data migration policies and multiple
volume sets for individual departments and workgroups. Volume sets
can scale in capacity as software management monitors usage levels
and will automatically prompt the administrator for additional storage
capacity as required.
Critical applications requiring High-Availability are ensured of
continuous data storage in the event of component failure through
the self-backing, self-archiving technology in DISCSTOR/nas. By
deploying a DISCSTOR/nas storage system administrators can reduce
downtime and increase productivity.
“The storage industry as a whole has already proven that
it can roll out high-capacity systems that are designed for storing
hot and frequently used data,” stated Bob Riland, President
and CEO of DISC. “The next challenge is in designing a complete
solution that can provide near and long-term storage capabilities
while ensuring the data will be available 24x7. Using High-Availability
and Clustering we have designed DISCSTOR/nas-HA to do just this,
offering users a highly reliable, cost-effective strategy to enable
instantaneous data access while protecting data integrity”
DISCSTOR/nas is compatible across the entire DISC product line,
giving users seamless connectivity up to 10 TBs of decentralized
storage on the network. DISCSTOR/nas 1.3 is available immediately.
