Dynamic Network Factory Introduces the High Performance TaskMaster 16000 RAID 3U Rackmount Featuring Ultra320 SCSI Hard Drives

SCSI to SCSI RAID Suystem offers Superior Performance for Database and Mission Critical Applications

Hayward, CA, May 1, 2004 -- Dynamic Network Factory, a leading developer of high performance, reliable and affordable storage solutions, introduces the TaskMaster 16000 RAID series, offering storage capacities from 288GB to 6.5 TeraBytes while utilizing UltraSCSI 320 hard drives for high volume, fail-safe data storage applications.

TaskMaster 16000 RAID is equipped with an Ultra160 SCSI RAID controller to offer fault-tolerant data protection. It is 100% transparent to the host operating system and requires no custom drivers. It is a full featured data protection subsystem supporting RAID levels 0, 1, 0+1, 3, 5, and JBOD. It is the ideal storage solution for applications requiring high data throughput, availability, and flexibility in configuration.

The TaskMaster 16000 is available in a variety of configurations using Ultra320 SCSI hard drives and Ultra160 SCSI controllers ranging from 288GB to 6,500GB. Single controller units include an environmental monitoring unit, with an audible alarm to provide notification via pager or fax, to ensure system reliability. All of the major components are also redundant and removable to ensure easy serviceability. All units include load sharing triple redundant power supplies to minimize potential downtime. Dual redundant Ultra160 SCSI controllers are also available. With dual Ultra160 SCSI host ports the TaskMaster 16000 is extremely flexible and scalable.

Dynamic Network Factory’s Dynamic Share software is also available providing customers with the option of integrating a cost-effective dual host solution. This client-side software can be used on direct-attached storage and SANs, providing a transparent volume sharing solution, allowing multiple users to work simultaneously on a single NTFS volume, thus increasing productivity and avoiding the downtime associated with leaving a single computer in control.

“Dynamic Network Factory products are purpose-built to provide high-quality solutions for our customers. We create comprehensive customized solutions that are easy to administer, easy to scale, and easy to incorporate into a variety of network environments. The TaskMaster 16000 series enhances our class-leading product lineup, with cutting-edge technology and reliability. This product integrates with our upcoming Hybrid Storage Network (HSN™) lineup and enhances our strategy of developing convenient solutions based on industry-standards,” said Mo Tahmasebi.
