      Imager 1      Tape RAID Controller   
Create Mirrored Data Sets In the Time It Takes To Generate A Single Copy!

When One Copy Just Isn't Enough
Increased Overall System Performance – Simultaneously create two identical backup tapes in real-time.  No additional software overhead.
Increased Data Availability – Recover valuable data even if one tape becomes lost, stolen or damaged.
Increased Reliability – Verify restored data automatically comparing tape contents.  Either copy can be used independently for recovery.
Disaster Recovery – Full fault tolerance protection with user configurable disaster recovery options.
100% Software Transparency – No software changes of any kind are required.  For current systems using tape, the imager 1 is plug and play with "ALL" existing tape backup software.
NT / Win 95 / 98 GUI – A full featured GUI for controlling and monitoring all operating and off-line modes.
Plug Compatibility – The Imager 1 controller is presented to the host as a single SCSI tape drive providing plug and play with host systems supporting SCSI-1 and SCSI-2 tape protocols.
Maximum Flexibility and Control - Four specific mirroring mode options, two disaster recovery options, fault tolerant mode and two pass through options.
Robotics Support compatible with existing autoloader and library software in both striping and mirroring modes of operation.
Offline Operations – The Imager 1 controller has built in hardware utilities for: Tape Copy, Tape Compare, Tape Verify, Tape Drive Diagnostics and "Self Test" Diagnostics.

Supported RAID Levels
Level 1 Mirroring two drives
Host Interface 
Single-Ended (SE) Interface - The host interface provides connection between the Imager 1 mirroring controller and the SCSI host system. It conforms to the SCSI-2 protocol while maintaining compatibility to SCSI-1, 8 bit SCSI. Fast Synchronous transfers combined with narrow transfers allows for a maximum of 10 MB/sec burst data transfer rate.
Array Interface
Single-Ended (SE) Interface - The drive interface provides 2 parallel SCSI channels between the Imager 1 mirroring controller and the tape drives.  The 8 bit SCSI fast synchronous transfers allow for a maximum of 10 MB/sec burst data rate. Compatible with all SCSI-1 and SCSI-2 drives. All major tape drives are supported.
GUI for NT / Win 95 / 98 
Ultera offers an optional remote access Graphical User Interface program called "Ultimate" that runs under NT, Win95, Win98 and DOS.  Running on the host system, Ultimate allows the user to remotely control up to 8 Ultera Tape Array subsystems.
Operator Console
The front panel operator console features a 4 line by 20 character display and 4 push button key pad.
