SYSTEMS PROFILED IN RED HERRING MAGAZINE
One of only 20 in Special Storage
LAGUNA HILLS, Calif.,... March 1, 2000 Ultera Systems,
the leading tape array controller and tape array system supplier, was honored by
Herring magazine with a company profile in its special storage supplement in the March
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 Ulteras
"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
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.
