CorelSCSI allows the integration of up to seven of the following supported peripherals off a single host adapter:
    -- Hard drives
    -- Removable drives
    -- CD-ROM drives
    -- Floptical drives
    -- DAT drives
    -- QIC tape drives
    -- WORM optical drives
    -- Rewritable optical drives
    -- Multifunction optical drives
    -- Optical disk jukeboxes
    CorelSCSI also includes tape back-up software, CD-AUDIO, as well as additional utilities that let the user customize the performance of the SCSI peripherals.
    All of the above solutions will include complete, easy-to-use documentation and an internal SCSI cable.
    SmartCache Plus SCSI Host Adapter
    The SmartCache Plus SCSI host adapter features a unique "grow-as- you-go" design that allows users to build upon the adapter's power to meet their expanding needs.  The entry-level SmartCache Plus can easily be converted to a high-end caching controller for faster performance simply by adding DPT's unique plug-on caching module and up to 16 megabytes of cache RAM to the base controller.  An add-on mirroring module provides fault tolerance support over multiple mirrored drives.
    The scalable architecture of SmartCache Plus offers price~performance options suitable for systems ranging from standalone workstations and small networks to large multiprocessor-equipped file servers and multi-user systems.  Computer manufacturers such as AST, Dell, NCR, NEC, Intel, Siemens, Wang and Wyse have all standardized on SmartCache Plus.

    CorelSCSI lists for $99 US and $119 CDN.  DPT resellers can purchase CorelSCSI with the SmartCache Plus host adapter from DPT's channel marketing.  DPT clients can purchase CorelSCSI directly from DPT by calling 407-830-5522.
