DISC Demonstrates DISCSTOR/naS at COMDEX DVD-RAM Pavilion

(November 13, 2000)

Las Vegas, NV - DISC®, Inc. (NASDAQ: DCSR), a leading manufacturer of nearline storage solutions, will demonstrate their DISCSTOR/naS, Network-Attached Storage (NAS) Server in the DVD-RAM Pavilion at Fall COMDEX this week. The DISCSTOR/naS network attached storage device allows network managers to seamlessly attach additional storage capacity to networks that improve data availability for users while delivering reliable and scalable storage solutions for mission-critical applications.

DISCSTOR/naS is fully scalable for departmental, workgroup and enterprise networks and features concurrent Network File System (NFS) and Common Internet File System (CIFS) support over TCP/IP, simple web browser-based administration and simultaneous UNIX and Windows file sharing and offers both local and network backup, providing continued network data access in the event of primary server downtime.

During the week-long convention, DISC will demonstrate the servers' secure, easy-to-use web browser-based Graphical User Interface (GUI), automated data and file migration and high performance. In addition, the storage server also offers users as many as four internal upgradable cache drives and built in I/O ports for on-the-fly system debug, diagnostics and status checks.

"With its immense capacity for storage and ability to support DVD, CD and MO storage technologies, DISCSTOR/naS provides exceptional versatility and flexibility," said Bob Riland, DISC Vice President of sales and marketing. "The server's multiple platform operating system, file sharing and migration capabilities along with easy to use web browser-based administration enable network administrators to economically maximize data availability."

Supporting storage capacities from 49GBs to over 9TBs, DISCSTOR/naS is capable of increasing data throughput by offloading network data storage from the primary file server, and reducing overall network traffic through decentralized data storage management. DISC's entire line of storage solutions provides users with the high performance, reliability and quality. DISCSTOR/naS supports from 20 to 1050 DVD, CD or MO libraries and cross platform compatibility including Windows NT/2000/98 and UNIX. Shipping in December, the DISCSTOR/naS will be available through resellers, distributors, and OEM's worldwide with an expected list price starting at $6,995.
