CIPRICO ANNOUNCES HIGHER AVAILABILITY, LOWER COST DISK ARRAY

 MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Ciprico Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: CPCI) today announced a new member of their fault tolerant, high performance, and large capacity disk array family -- the Ciprico 6720. The 6720, is a five-drive array, offering 2 to 4GB of storage capacity using industry standard 3-1/2 inch high-capacity SCSI-2 disk drives. In addition to hot swap drives, the array also supports hot swap redundant power supplies, providing users with multiple levels of fault tolerance.
 Ciprico's disk arrays are more than just hardware solutions -- they are tailored to popular operating environments, including Novell- compatible networks, Silicon Graphics workstations, and other systems supporting standard SCSI-2. Each disk array includes software drivers, utilities, and accessories for a specific operating environment, making installation and configuration fast and easy.
 "The 6720 array takes us another step further in offering arrays which plug and play in popular operating environments," said Bill Moren, senior product line manager. "With the 6720, we are offering additional fault tolerant features, performance and capacity at a very affordable price."
 Other features of the 6720 include a "cold spare" drive shuttle bay allowing users to have a spare drive standing by in the event of a drive failure. Drive investment is also protected because replacement drives need not match the original drive's model or even manufacturer.
 The Ciprico five-drive 6720 disk array is packaged in a tower enclosure and available immediately. Suggested list price for 4GB of storage is $16,495.
 Ciprico designs, manufactures, and markets disk arrays and intelligent SCSI adapters for the high-performance segment of the computer industry's mass storage market. The company's products are sold worldwide by Ciprico's direct sales force and independent representatives to original equipment manufacturers, and through value added resellers to end users.
