MAYNARD DOUBLES WORKSTATION BACKUP CAPACITY/SPEED WITH NEW DAT DRIVE
 LAKE MARY, Fla., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- A new DAT drive offering hardware data compression for workstation backup was introduced today by Maynard Electronics, an Archive(R) company. The new ArchiveST(TM) 4000 DAT drive offers a storage capacity up to 8GB on a single 4mm tape cartridge (typically 4GB storage capacity) and up to twice the data transfer speed of earlier drives. This drive supports the IBM RISC/System 6000(A), SUN(A), NeXT(A), SCO(A), InterActive(A), SunSoft(A) and most other PC-based UNIX workstations using standard UNIX utilities such as TAR and CPIO. The ArchiveST 4000 DAT drive will begin shipping in July in external and internal configurations.
 "Out ArchiveST line offers workstation users one of the best combinations of high capacity, high speed backup solutions in the workstation industry," said Bernie Wu, director of the Maynard Workstation Business Development group. "We couple these highly reliable, high performance tape drives with one of the most comprehensive support programs available."
 In addition to effectively doubling the capacity of a single tape, the ArchiveST DAT drive offers an equivalent improvement in data transfer rates. The ArchiveST DAT drive is designed for maximum reliability with an expected MTBF greater than 40,000 hours at a 30 percent duty cycle. For user convenience, ArchiveST systems include commonly required installation hardware, including terminators, cabling, rails, jumpers and media.
 As part of a corporate commitment to workstations and PC-based UNIX customers, Maynard has established a dedicated UNIX business unit including UNIX-trained customer support specialists, a toll-free technical support hotline, 24-hour electronic bulletin board service, spare-in-the-air emergency replacement and 24-hour person-to-person technical support.
