Winning For the Second Year In A Row

Advanced Logic Research Inc. (NASDAQ:AALR) on Monday announced that its ALR Revolution Series has received UNIX Review's 1996 Outstanding Product Award in the hardware category.

This award marks the second consecutive year that ALR has won this prestigious honor. This year's award winner, the ALR flagship Revolution Quad6 server system, received accolades for its excellence in seven categories, including design, installation, documentation, expandability, operation, performance, and overall rating. All winners of the 1996 Outstanding Product Awards are featured in the December 1996 issue of UNIX Review.

"We are honored that UNIX Review, recognized for its in-depth technical analyses, chose ALR products as industry-leading, server solutions," said Genny Ortegon, ALR's vice president of marketing. "This award reinforces ALR's leadership position in the high-end UNIX-based server market, while emphasizing the strategic role our products play in today's demanding networked environments."

For the second consecutive year, the ALR Revolution Series received the highest honors from UNIX Review in the server category.

In reviewing the ALR Revolution Quad6 in its November 1996 issue, UNIX Review stated, "Overall, the ALR Revolution Quad6 is an excellent Pentium Pro SMP server. The combination of superb design, operation, and expandability provides a solid base for system managers to provide functionality and convenience to their users. If other architectural considerations point toward a Pentium Pro solution, the Quad6 is a must-consider machine."

The ALR Revolution Quad6 Server System

Recognized worldwide for its technological leadership, ALR engineered the Revolution Quad6 to be the industry's most innovative Intel-based server.

This system's ALR designed system board supports up to four 200-MHz Pentium Pro processors with 512-KB of integrated cache per processor, true symmetrical multiprocessing, and 4:1 memory interleaving.

The Revolution Quad6's RISC level performance makes it ideal for 32-bit applications and SMP operating systems. Its enhanced processor scaleability, 13 drive bays and 15 available expansion slots make it an excellent platform for fast-growing networks requiring maximum flexibility.

For mission critical applications, the Revolution Quad6 also offers several levels of standard and available fault tolerance.
