Ultraspeed Leverages BlueArc's Titan 2000 to Fuel Innovative "Diskless Server System" Web Hosting Platform

Ultraspeed Architects Services Aimed at Delivering Customers the Ultimate in Reliability, Performance and Scalability

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 8, 2007 -- BlueArc® Corporation, a market leader in scalable, high-performance unified storage, today announced that Ultraspeed has chosen the company's Titan 2000 series to drive the aggressive expansion of its business and meet customers' rapidly growing storage needs. With BlueArc's Titan 2000 technology, Ultraspeed is able to offer users a significantly more reliable and easy to manage hosting experience with unprecedented performance.

"We wanted to invest in a solution that would give us the most value and enable us to scale with our growing customer base without sacrificing the quality of our service at any step along the way," said Jordan Gross, commercial director of Ultraspeed. "With Titan 2000, we've deployed a solution for the long haul. BlueArc was able to offer us extremely impressive performance, reduced management costs and future-proof scalability."

Ultraspeed offers dedicated and managed servers for all types of customers, ranging from some of the largest UK government agencies and online Internet portals, to smaller Internet design firms that maintain Web sites for clients. Ultraspeed prides itself on delivering highly nimble and personal services and maintaining that level of quality in its offering even while continuing to grow at a rapid pace was critical to its decision to evolve its platform from a disk-based architecture to one built on network attached storage. After looking into several options, the company chose BlueArc's Titan 2000.

As a result of its integration of the Titan 2000, Ultraspeed has seen a dramatic reduction in the hours its staff spends on reloading and updating its system. The company's primarily Windows servers are able to boot directly from the Titan without a hard drive, further freeing up time for staff to deliver value-added interactions with both new and existing clients. By building out its service offering with BlueArc, Ultraspeed is now cost-effectively growing and continuing to reach ever more impressive levels of reliability and almost eliminating user downtime.

"Ultraspeed understands that in the Web hosting business, availability, reliability and affordability are a must for top-notch customer experience and they are aggressively delivering on these critical requirements," said Steve Daheb, vice president of marketing and business development for BlueArc. "We're extremely pleased that, as many other Internet services customers have, Ultraspeed chose Titan as the building block for its diskless server platform and we're looking forward to fueling the company's growth for years to come."
