Robert W. Riland III Promoted to VP of Sales and Marketing

(August 25, 2000)

Milpitas, CA - DISC Inc. (NASDAQ: DCSR), announced today that Robert W. Riland III has been promoted to Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Since Mr. Riland joined DISC, the company has initiated plans for further growth into the enterprise storage market.

"Bob Riland has made significant contributions in the short time since he joined DISC," said company president and CEO, J. Richard Ellis. "Through his efforts, we have developed and redefined the sales and marketing tools necessary to grow our market. Bob's energy and enthusiasm are a welcome addition to the company."

Mr. Riland originally came to DISC to head the marketing and business development programs in March 2000. His previous experience with Maxoptix Corporation and U-tron Technologies, in which both companies experienced 60% annual revenues and growth under his leadership, is a testament to the caliber of talent present on the DISC executive team today.

Mr. Riland has been the visionary in raising company visibility above the traditional storage markets and has begun to lay the groundwork to successfully deliver DISC's message to a wider audience.

"We are focusing on building storage devices that add capacities to networks for a fraction of the cost of RAID," said Riland. "This new focus allows us to move our efforts from the traditional niche markets we have been targeting to the general network storage arena, thus increasing our market potential."
