|DISC, Inc. announces High-Availability and Clustering Network Attach Storage|
|Fault-tolerant and self-backing storage system allows for uninterrupted service|
MILPITAS, 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”
