Press Release
One of only 20 in Special Storage Issue

LAGUNA HILLS, Calif.,... March 1, 2000 – Ultera Systems, the leading tape array controller and tape array system supplier, was honored by Red Herring magazine with a company profile in its special storage supplement in the March 2000 issue.

The 100-page section on a variety of storage market topics underscores the importance of the technology and the industry, according to Fred Bedard, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Ultera Systems. "As one of only 20 privately owned companies in the issue, and one of only four profitable companies, this is a strong statement for the value of our innovative technology and its place in the storage industry. The explosive growth of corporate data and the need for reliable storage is a great opportunity for our tape RAID technology, and being included in this prestigious magazine attests to that."

Red Herring, a 200+ page magazine on the business of technology, includes detailed financial and market information on public and private companies with an inside perspective on technology trends. The Ultera profile recognizes Ultera’s "flagship" product, the LibraryMaster™, as "complementing existing tape technologies, tape libraries, and autoloaders by reading and writing data while providing guaranteed data recoverability." The Ultera tape RAID products push the envelope for specialized high-reliability and high-availability storage systems and provide a fault-tolerant architecture that allows tape backup operations to continue even in the event of a drive or media failure. For optimal performance, users can select the striping option with RAID levels (0, 1 & 3) that combine the bandwidth of multiple tape drives to create the fastest backup possible (increasing speed up to 400%) and/or the disaster-resistant mirroring configuration that creates multiple copies of every backup session for maximum data protection with 100% guaranteed data recovery.

In another strategic business move, Ultera recently unveiled its DVD-R MultiMaster™ RAID library technology for DVD-R optical, an industry first for the company. Ultera will soon bring to market another innovative optical library product for M-O. Ultera is close to inking several strategic OEM agreements with leading optical library manufacturers for both of its new optical RAID controllers, which will only be available as OEM products.
