Adaptec Wins Best of CeBIT America Award with Backup Solution

6/1/2004 - Adaptec, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADPT), a global leader in storage solutions, this week won the Best of CeBIT America award with the Adaptec File Saver ESA1500, an application-specific storage array that automatically backs up corporate PC and laptop information unprotected by standard server backups and gives users an easy way to restore lost files.

Adaptec File Saver, the newest member of Adaptec's growing family of external storage arrays, was among the products and services evaluated at CeBIT America for innovation, technical breakthrough and creativity of design. Editorial and product testing staffs of leading information technology publications eWEEK and PC Magazine conducted the evaluations.

Adaptec File Saver was the top product in Enterprise Storage, a category that included storage area network (SAN) and network attached storage (NAS) hardware and software, storage management and enterprise backup software, and tape storage.

The new Adaptec array is a high-availability, highly fault tolerant network-attached storage RAID appliance that provides realtime backup of PC and laptop data and allows users to restore lost files themselves. The 1-terabyte array is as easy to install as a printer and can be easily scaled to 4 terabytes of storage capacity by adding appliances. Adaptec File Saver delivers advanced data protection, and optional Adaptec RAIN (Redundant Array of Independent Nodes) technology provides appliance-level redundancy for best-in-class fault tolerance.

"Demand for cost-effective external storage products that combine enterprise-class capabilities with new levels of installation and management ease is growing in organizations of all sizes, though the need is especially acute among small and midsize businesses with modest IT budgets," said Ram Jayam, a vice president and general manager at Adaptec. "Adaptec is meeting these needs by delivering a suite of easy-to-use storage arrays for applications such as backup, email, database, disaster recovery and consolidation."

"We are pleased to receive this important CeBIT America recognition of our innovation and technical excellence with Adaptec File Saver," Jayam said.
