Ease Intros SATA-on-AIX

AUSTIN, Texas -- Finally, IBM's powerful AIX(R) operating system has met its storage match. Ease Software, Inc.
(http://www.easesoftware.com/) today released SATA-on-AIX, the only pure SATA disk solution for IBM's System p(TM) servers.

SATA-on-AIX provides extremely high-speed, low-cost disk solutions with 250 megabytes-per-second actual transfer rates per SATA port - and at under two dollars per gigabyte for a complete disk solution, SATA-on-AIX offers surprising value at the enterprise level.

"SATA is the newest technology for today's computers, and it is as robust as SCSI for AIX. The user interface is 100 percent AIX, so there are no new tools for the AIX user to learn. The SATA disks install, configure and are managed just like a SCSI disk," explained Perry Smith, Ease Software president. "Even better, it's a fraction of the cost of similar products. We strive to provide options, including one for the user who needs only 250G."
