Network Computing Selects Adaptec IP San Solution for Award

5/15/2003 - Adaptec, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADPT), the global leader in IP storage networking, announced that its IP storage networking solution has won Network Computing's prestigious Editor's Choice award.

Adaptec has pioneered IP storage networking solutions to enable midsize businesses and enterprise workgroups to take advantage of storage area networks for key applications such as database, disaster recovery, LAN-free backup, consolidation and other storage applications. IP storage networks enable these capabilities using simple, standard Ethernet components.

The comparative review evaluated products from Adaptec and two competitors in key performance and usability criteria, such as installation and setup, data throughput and server CPU utilization. Network Computing praised the Adaptec solution for its ease of use. The card also "won outright on throughput" and was "downright stingy" on CPU utilization in the evaluation at the magazine's Green Bay, Wisconsin, test facility. For full details on the review see
