Promise Technology's VTrak E-Class RAID Subsystems to Offer Support for Mac OS X and Final Cut Studio

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - January 15, 2008) - Promise Technology Inc., a leading supplier of sophisticated RAID storage solutions for enterprise and SMB customers, today announced that Promise VTrak™ E-Class RAID subsystems will support Mac OS X Leopard and Final Cut Studio, the industry's leading video production suite, in select configurations to be available at a later date through selected sales channels.

"Promise Technology is delighted to preview support for Leopard and Final Cut Studio at Macworld," said Sam Sirisena, senior vice president, sales and marketing, and general manager of Promise's Advanced Storage Group. "VTrak E-Class RAID subsystems have been very popular with Linux and Windows installations, and we're looking forward to bringing our high performance, fully scalable storage solutions to the most demanding Mac customers."

Each VTrak RAID subsystem configured for the Mac supports up to 16 integrated 3.5-inch SAS or SATA drives, and increased scalability is achieved by adding an available expansion chassis with another 16 3Gb/sec SAS or SATA drives, for capacities up to 24TB per configuration. Dual active-active, failover/failback RAID controllers, 4Gb Fibre Channel connections to the host, RAID 5 and RAID 6 support, along with global and dedicated hot spare hard drives, will set a new standard for the RAID performance and data protection found in the most demanding Final Cut Pro installations.

Promise will be demonstrating a preview of VTrak E-Class RAID subsystems for Mac customers at Macworld San Francisco, booth 4345, West Hall, January 15th - 18th.
