Adaptec Goes from ASICs to Plug-And-Play Networked Storage at IDF

9/16/2003 - Adaptec, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADPT), a global leader in storage solutions, will showcase interoperable end-to-end storage solutions - from ASICs for direct-attached storage connectivity and data protection to plug-and-play solutions for storage area networks - this week at the Intel Developer Forum. The technology demonstrations will highlight a suite of Adaptec solutions that enables organizations to easily scale system performance, data protection and capacity to meet their growing storage needs.

The core of Adaptec's end-to-end approach is a common hardware and software architecture that enables IT managers to seamlessly migrate from direct-attached to networked storage across a broad range of technologies including Serial ATA, Serial Attached SCSI, iSCSI and Fibre Channel. The architecture includes:

"Companies working to keep pace with growing amounts of data need the flexibility to cost-effectively migrate to higher levels of performance, data protection and capacity," said Ahmet Houssein, vice president and general manager of Adaptec's Storage Solutions Group. "Adaptec's end-to-end storage solutions provide a seamless path from direct-attached to networked storage to simplify storage deployment, configuration and upgrades."

Adaptec Debuts PCI Express Solution
Adaptec will build on its leadership in serial technologies by showcasing a PCI Express Ultra320 SCSI RAID card, the first of its solutions to use Intel's high-performance PCI Express I/O processor. PCI Express is expected to enable the design of systems that deliver high levels of server-storage performance, scalability and reliability.

"Intel is giving Adaptec early access to our forthcoming PCI Express I/O processor, codenamed Dobson, enabling Adaptec to speed time-to-market of high-performance PCI Express solutions," said Mike Wall, general manager of Intel's Storage Components Division. "Adaptec's development of PCI Express solutions will make its RAID technology available to server OEMs implementing PCI Express, allowing them to integrate data protection into their systems."
