Accordance Announces First Drop -In Serial ATA RAID Device to Provide Instant Data Recovery for Business Networks

ARAID 2000 keeps two copies of data on two S -ATA disks so there is always a 100% data backup if one disk fails

DES MOINES, Iowa, June 29, 2004 - Accordance Systems today announced the availability of the ARAID 2000, an easy to install and use Serial ATA (SATA) RAID 1/0 storage solution for businesses concerned with losing critical data. Compatible with popular operating systems (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc), ARAID 2000 automatically mirrors data onto a second disk to ensure that data is protected in case one disk dies or gets corrupted. Because all the intelligence is built in the ARAID 2000, users do not have to install controller boards or load any software to use the device.
Not only can users enjoy the high performance and reliability of SATA, they are protecting data at a reduced cost compared to other data backup strategies. Each unit supports disk hot -swapping, LCD status display, independent locking disk trays, audible warning alarms and forced air -cooling. The ARAID RAID architecture utilizes Accordance ASIC technology that performs RAID services in hardware with less than 3% CPU overhead.
"Insert two hard drives into the ARAID 2000, connect the cables and stick it in your computer box. That's all that is required. Start the computer and the ARAID 2000 looks like one S -ATA disk to the system," said Steve Johnson, President of Accordance Systems. "The ARAID 2000 is perfect for data back -up for small to medium size businesses and office networks with RAID1 data continuity. And with just a simple flip of a switch, the ARAID devices turns into a RAID 0 storage throughput accelerator striping data on the two disks. It is perfect for high performance applications such as gaming, pre -press imaging and digital video editing. It's a simple, versatile data storage workhorse."
For larger businesses and enterprise users, the ARAID 2000 can be easily managed via SNMP protocol communicating to popular network management systems like Tivoli and HP OpenView as well as Accordance's recently announced OpManager. Accordance Systems is the first company to support SNMP software for this class of device in its ARAID line of RAID products.
"With a 150 -MB -per -second transfer rate, hot -plug capabilities and low -cost, Serial ATA (SATA) is ideal for work groups that demand improved data protection or increased performance," says David Hill,analyst Mesabi Group. "New RAID systems, such as Accordance's ARAID 2000, are taking advantage of SATA's increased throughput for faster disk mirroring and disk striping."
List price for the ARAID 1500 and 2000 is $370/each. These products and the rest of Accordance product family of IDE, SCSI, NAS and Micro -Servers RAID storage products can be purchased on line at the Accordance website at: www.accordancesystems.com.
