PINNACLE MICRO SHIPS OPTICAL LIBRARY SYSTEMS FOR MACINTOSH AND NOVELL NETWORK STORAGE FROM 20 TO 186 GIGABYTES

 IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Pinnacle Micro (NASDAQ: PNCL) today announced that it has initiated shipments of its full line of high- performance magneto-optical library systems ranging from 20 Gigabytes to 186 Gigabytes of storage capacity, which include the company's own jukebox data management software for Macintosh or Novell(R) networks.
 Pinnacle's optical library systems, the Ata-20GB, the Aspen-40GB, the Alpine-120GB and the Mammoth-186-20GB, are based on its own fully standard 1.3 Gigabyte optical mechanism offering a 19-millisecond access time, a data throughput of 2.0 Megabytes-per-second and a 4500 RPM rotation speed.
 Each system comes complete with Pinnacle's Virtual File System (PVFS) software for Macintosh or Novell(R).
 "There is an increasing need to store mass amounts of centralized data. As optical disks begin to multiply there is a greater need for jukeboxes to manage those disks online so that the data may be shared across a network," said Executive Vice President Scott Blum. "The Pinnacle line of optical library systems offers a fast, reliable way to store data into the future."
