Adaptec Intros New Release of OS

MILPITAS, Calif. -- Adaptec, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADPT), a global leader in storage systems, today announced version 4.4 of its award-winning GuardianOS operating system, which powers its Snap Server network storage systems. Scaling from 160GB to 66TB, Snap Server by Adaptec enables distributed enterprises to deliver the right amount of storage for applications at headquarters, in branch offices, and in retail outlets. In addition to providing new file and print services, GuardianOS runs enterprise-class data protection software for PCs and servers, and replication software to distribute, protect and collect data between remote Snap Servers.

The enhanced version of GuardianOS features the Data Migration Utility, which allows businesses to easily transfer data from any system supporting the CIFS or NFS protocols to a Snap Server. By ensuring that all file and folder permissions remain intact, and verifying that the transfer was performed correctly, businesses get the assurance that their data has been completely and correctly transferred to the Snap Server.

“Adaptec has made it easy and safe to migrate information from expensive network attached storage (NAS) and dated file servers to new Snap Servers,” said Steve Terlizzi, vice president and general manager of the Storage Solutions Group at Adaptec. “Copy utilities are not reliable enough to handle large data transfers and it can take weeks or months to get all the permissions right after data is moved. Our new Data Migration Utility takes all of that pain away.”
