StreamLogic Corp. announces direct network attach storage option; StreamLink allows StreamLogic storage subsystems to directly attach anywhere on an Ethernet network.

CHATSWORTH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 8, 1996--StreamLogic Corp. (NASDAQ:MLIS) Monday announced StreamLink, a product addition to the RAIDION and MICRODISK external storage subsystems, which allows direct attachment to an Ethernet network.

StreamLink is a cost-effective plug-and-play connectivity solution ideal for workgroups who need the functionality and flexibility of adding storage without bringing down the network or reformatting the storage.

StreamLink eliminates the need for storage to be attached to a file server. The product can be easily attached to any Ethernet network drop. The product fits neatly under the drive stack in desktop configurations of the StreamLogic RAIDION fault-tolerant disk arrays and MICRODISK external, stackable, modular storage subsystems.

``StreamLogic is a forerunner in network-level storage solutions and StreamLink makes the addition of storage as flexible and easy to use as possible,'' said J. Larry Smart, president and chief executive officer of StreamLogic.

``StreamLink allows you to add StreamLogic external storage products to a network quickly, expanding capacity without bringing down the network. The product offers the convenience of placing storage locally in a workgroup environment, and cost savings by eliminating the need for an additional server and separate NetWare license.''

With downtime in an average network environment costing several thousands of dollars an hour, StreamLink offers the cost savings of attaching and servicing new storage by simply plugging it in to the network. In fact, the product can be installed in about 15 minutes. The network recognizes the storage device as if it were a file server.

StreamLink supports concurrent NFS and IPX/SPX file sharing. The product can be simultaneously connected to NFS, NetWare and Windows NT platforms. Users can transparently access and share files created on any of these platforms; an ideal solution for NOS conversions.

The product includes an Ethernet AUI interface to either a 10Base-T or 10Base-2 transceiver for network connection and an SCSI-2 port to attach the storage device. An RS232 port is also included for easy configuration. The product is equipped with 8 MB DRAM standard and is upgradeable to 64 MB.

StreamLink will be available in May at a suggested list price of $2,995 through StreamLogic-authorized distributors and resellers. For the location of the nearest StreamLogic reseller, call 800/395-3748 (800/395-DRIV).

StreamLogic is a leading developer of software and subsystems designed for the movement, storage and management of video and data. Current product offerings include RAIDION fault-tolerant disk arrays, MICRODISK external storage subsystems, VIDEON video-on-demand servers and the Video Disk Recorder.

Built upon two former divisions of Micropolis Corp., StreamLogic's products are sold to OEMs and system integrators and through distribution channels worldwide and has estimated revenues of $50 million. StreamLogic has headquarters in Chatsworth, with sales offices located in the United States and internationally. -0-
