VA LINUX FORGES AHEAD IN NETWORK ATTACHED STORAGE MARKET.

VA Linux Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: LNUX) has introduced the VA Linux 9205 NAS system--a convenient, ultradense 2U (3.5-inch-high) storage appliance that leverages VA's expertise in Open Source software and high-density Linux systems engineering. The VA Linux 9205 NAS is VA's first network-attached storage (NAS)

solution, complementing the company's product line--the industry's broadest selection of 1U and 2U rackmount Linux servers.

Scalable to 2.1 terabytes in an ultradense 8U form factor, the 9205 NAS provides industry-leading storage density--over 10TB in a standard 42U rack--providing the ideal network file sharing solution for e-businesses in ISP data centers, where space is at a premium. The VA Linux 9205 NAS offers seamless file sharing across multiple platforms--Linux, UNIX, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS--enabling transparent file access in heterogeneous network environments.

"VA Linux is bringing the power of Open Source software--reliability, innovation and reduced costs--to the NAS market," said Ali Jenab, senior vice president and general manager of VA Linux's Systems Division. "E-businesses today need to manage and store more data than ever before, and Open Source is the key to keeping up with this rapid pace. VA Linux is re-defining the storage market by bringing scalable Open Source NAS solutions to our customers, and backing them with an extensive, best-of-class service and support package."

International Data Corporation (IDC) has projected that the NAS market will grow from $850 million in 1999 to $6.57 billion by 2003, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 66 percent.(1)

Starting at under $29,300 for 180GB of storage, the VA Linux 9205 is the first in a family of NAS solutions from VA Linux Systems. All VA Linux NAS products feature an extensive service and support package--VA's award-winning "Total Linux Coverage (TLC)" for NAS--including one year of unlimited 24x7 technical support and onsite service and three years of comprehensive warranty coverage.
