Seagate Holds Enterprise Technology Seminar in Tokyo

Seagate Technology, the world's leading supplier of hard disc drives, will hold a "Seagate Enterprise Technology Seminar" for system integrators (SI) and value added resellers (VARs) to educate these important channel partners about the diverse applications for multi-drive, high capacity systems featuring Seagate enterprise drives, including the new Barracuda ES series of drives. The seminar will be held on Friday, September 8, 2006.

Tom Kobayashi, president of Nippon Seagate said, "In our ongoing dialogue with channel partners we are seeing a tremendous need for better data management capabilities, and a deeper understanding of the best solutions to meet specific customer needs. Seagate provides enterprise drives to meet any need system integrators and value added resellers have. Our Barracuda ES drive family is specially designed to be at the core of today's most robust and reliable data management solutions for nearline storage. The Barracuda ES drive provides a significant boost in capacity and reliability that far exceeds prior generations in meeting the need for cost-effective, Disk Array/WB server storage."

At the technology seminar, Seagate and fellow technology leaders Intel and Adaptec, will talk about the challenges that enterprises face and provide in-depth knowledge about solutions VARs and SIs might employ in meeting their customers' needs. They will also showcase applications where Seagate enterprise hard drives combine the highest capacity available with enterprise features demanded in 'multi-drive' capacity-intensive configurations, ideal for low cost-per-GB business storage solutions. Some of the topics that will be discussed include serial ATA and Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) interface technologies, latest server platform and data protection.

The seminar is specially designed for SI and VARS and registration is required. Further information can be found at https://seagate-marketing.info/public/seminar/view/4.
