Seagate Joins Eurologic for Demonstration of Ultra320 SCSI at Comdex

SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. - Seagate Technology will join Eurologic in demonstrating its latest Ultra320 SCSI storage solution during this year's Comdex show in Las Vegas. Seagate's Cheetah X15-36LP, the fastest disc drive in the world, will be integrated into Eurologic's ULTRAbloc™ Ultra 320 SCSI-ready JBOD network storage system that will together provide high data transfer rates. Ultra320 SCSI's incorporation of key features including data transfer speeds up to 320 Mbytes per second, packetization, and QAS, help provide overall system performance, data integrity, and reliability.

"Seagate's Cheetah X15-36LP family of disc drives are the choice for our Eurologic ULTRAbloc systems that require the highest levels of performance and reliability," said Ken Claffey, Product Manager at Eurologic. "Eurologic's ULTRAbloc storage solution is our third generation of SCSI product and is one of the highest performing SCSI-based storage products available today. The system is specifically designed to maximize the benefits of Ultra320 SCSI, both through Eurologic's unique SCSI architecture and by means of integrating disc drives that will together provide a new level of performance and reliability for critical 24x7 enterprise environments."

"Seagate's relationship with Eurologic is an important one, and we're proud to see how Eurologic continues to push the envelope of system connectivity, and performance with their unique product offerings," said Brian Dexheimer, Seagate executive vice president of Worldwide Sales, Marketing and Customer Service. "We look forward to joining Eurologic at Comdex this year to showcase our Ultra320 SCSI solutions as well as continuing to develop new storage solutions to help fulfill the needs of Eurologic's customers."

Seagate's Cheetah X15-36LP featuring the Ultra320 SCSI interface will be available during the first quarter of 2002, with its Ultra160 SCSI version currently shipping in volume. The demonstration of Eurologic's Ultra320 SCSI-ready network storage system with Seagate's disc drives can be viewed between November 12 and 16 at Comdex at the Eurologic suite at the Hilton Towers, Room HRM03.

About Seagate's Implementation of Ultra320 SCSI Technology
Seagate's Ultra320 SCSI disc drives, including its Cheetah X15-36LP, have a full implementation of mandatory and optional Ultra320 SCSI interface features as defined in T10/SPI-4 rev 7, including packetization and QAS. When providing data storage solutions for Enterprise systems, maintaining high levels of data reliability and signal integrity is critical, especially at speeds of 320 MB/sec. Seagate's superior implementation of Ultra320 SCSI technology occurred only after rigorous engineering development with a focus on achieving and maintaining the highest levels of signal integrity possible along the SCSI path. Because Seagate's implementation of Ultra320 SCSI provides a highly reliable SCSI signal, the incorporation of technologies such as adaptive active filtration can be avoided. The final result is a cleaner, stronger SCSI signal, and a continuation of Seagate's leadership and commitment to excellence in Enterprise storage technology.
