SYSTEMS MARKS RECORD PERIOD OF SUCCESS
LAGUNA HILLS, Calif.,... March 7, 2000 Ultera
Systems, the leading tape array controller and tape array system supplier, recently marked
a record season of strategic partnerships and product distinctions, gaining international
recognition for its advanced tape array controller technology.
"In a six-month period, we have achieved phenomenal international and domestic
results in signing resellers, partnering with major storage vendors and earning editorial
awards for our advanced controller technology," said Fred Bedard, Ultera Vice
President, Sales and Marketing.
Since August 1999, Ultera has signed a record number of premier international resellers
and distributors, including Japans Macnica; Sydney, Australia-based
Solutions, serving Spain and Portugal; Kingswell-Skyhawk in the U.K. and Sweden; and
SkyData, a leading Canadian distributor.
In the U.S., Ultera once again partnered with Data General/EMC, providing its tape
array controller technologies for the Data General DLT* Array 7000+, to create a
cost-effective, leading-edge solution that meets the most demanding data management
requirements for ultra-reliable storage. Shortly thereafter, Ultera teamed up with Exabyte
to create the industrys first true turnkey DLTtape* RAID backup solution,
incorporating Ulteras LibraryMaster with Exabytes 690D DLTtape library.
The Ultera/Exabyte solution was awarded a Computer Technology Review
"Resellers Choice" award in the December 1999 issue for the innovative,
fault-tolerant engineering Ulteras second Resellers Choice for its
LibraryMaster controller technology in six months.
"The time has come for tape arrays, given the extraordinary growth in the disk
storage market over the past year, and the need for high-performance backup has become the
critical corporate issue. This demand, along with our technology excellence, brought
leading companies to Ultera for our one-of-a-kind tape RAID product line," said
In a separate strategic move, Ultera recently unveiled its DVD-R MultiMaster RAID
library technology for DVD-R optical, and another 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.
