LSI Logic Storage Systems and Maxtor Demonstrate First Serial ATA Storage For The Enterprise Demonstration During Comdex Shows How SATA Delivers Significant Cost Savings Without Sacrificing Features for Enterprise-class Systems LAS VEGAS, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- LSI Logic Storage Systems, Inc., a leader in delivering technology that enables high performance, highly scalable storage for the open enterprise, today announced that the company's new Serial ATA (SATA) storage systems powered by the company's industry leading controller technology are being demonstrated with Maxtor Corporation's MaXLine(TM) Serial ATA (SATA) hard drives in Maxtor's technology suite in the Gaugin Room of the Bellagio Hotel, November 17 - 19. As the first storage vendor to ship SATA technology in enterprise-class systems, LSI Logic Storage Systems uses Maxtor(R) MaXLine Serial ATA hard drives for enterprise application environments that require lower cost storage without sacrificing the availability, manageability, data integrity and software/hardware features currently achieved with Fibre Channel based storage systems. "LSI Logic Storage Systems' new Serial ATA solution provides an affordable option to help manage enterprise archived or fixed content data," said Steve Gardner, director of product marketing, LSI Logic Storage Systems. "We're pleased to be working with Maxtor to demonstrate this significant step forward in the evolution of enterprise storage solutions." Serial ATA is ideal for meeting the specific workload, capacity and cost requirements of secondary storage. Its ability to cost-effectively store large amounts of information online for such uses as reference data, fixed content, disaster recovery and backup targets, brings tremendous value to the data center. Specialized bandwidth applications in non-traditional IT environments, such as rich media, seismic processing or streaming content will also benefit from the lower cost per gigabyte of SATA.
