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

MILPITAS, Calif. — 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

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

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.
