ADIC SCALAR STORAGE NETWORKING LIBRARIES ARE NOW ALL 2 GB FIBRE READY.

Advanced Digital Information Corporation (Nasdaq:ADIC), a provider of Intelligent Storage solutions, announced recently the upgrading of its entire family of Scalar storage networking libraries to 2 Gb/second Fibre Channel interface.

The announcement covers all Fibre Channel connected models of ADIC's Scalar 100, Scalar 1000, and Scalar 10K automated tape libraries. The Scalar line provides data protection and high capacity storage for the industry's widest range of IT environments -- from workgroups and remote offices to the largest enterprise data centers with models that support from 1 to over 600 drives and from 15 to over 15,000 data cartridges.

"We started shipping 2 Gb storage networking libraries in selected ADIC libraries beginning in July of 2001 and have a substantial installed base," said Bill Britts, ADIC executive vice president of Sales and Marketing. "Now that many of the leading SAN infrastructure suppliers are making 2 Gb products available, we have extended support for the newer, faster standard to all of our storage networking libraries, including both ADIC-branded and OEM models. For our customers, it means that all of their ADIC storage solutions will integrate easily into the latest generation of SAN environments and take full advantage of their systems' total performance capabilities."

ADIC's Scalar series tape libraries were the industry's first integrated storage networking libraries. They pioneered the integration of SAN management services into automated libraries, offering built-in SAN security, integrated data path verification, redundant path support, error recovery, and performance optimization.

The Scalar 100 is a scalable mid-range, rack optimized tape library that supports from 1 to 8 tape drives and from 15 to 96 tapes, depending on the configuration and technology selected. Available with LTO, S/DLT, and AIT technologies, the Scalar 100 holds up to 25 terabytes of data in only 14 rack units. Internal upgrades allow the Scalar 100 to grow with users' data easily and quickly.

The Scalar 1000 is a high performance scalable tape library that reduces Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in high growth environments. The Scalar 1000's barrier-free expansion systems allows it to grow easily with data while maintaining superior performance and reliability -- and eliminating use of pass-through ports. The Scalar 1000 supports from 1 to 48 drives, and from 118 to 1182 tapes. Supported technology includes LTO, S/DLT, AIT and 3590 in single or mixed-media configurations.

The Scalar 10K was the first library in the industry designed for enterprise data consolidation. The Scalar 10K is the first enterprise library to offer capacity-on-demand upgrades and true high availability architecture. Its barrier-free scalability allows it to grow easily with users' data without using pass-through ports. The Scalar 10K is available in LTO, SDLT, AIT and mixed media configurations, supporting up to 648 drives and 15,885 cartridges for a total native capacity of up to 1,588 TB.
