SimpleTech Ships Drive

SANTA ANA, Calif. -- SimpleTech, Inc. (Nasdaq:STEC), today announced that it shipped the inaugural order of $360,000 of its proprietary Maracite solid-state drives. The order is a direct result of its recent acquisition of Gnutek UK, Ltd., developer of its proprietary Maracite solid-state drives (SSD) for enterprise storage applications. The customer, a leading global communication equipment company, will use Maracite in high-performance voice and data-handling equipment to enable more rapid access to data while significantly reducing storage costs.

SimpleTech completed the integration of the Gnutek team and is now fully manufacturing the finished Maracite drive at its facility in Southern California. Maracite will now be the high end of the Zeus product line and carry the name Zeus-IOPS. The break-through, solid-state drive is now in mass production and is sampling on a large scale to numerous OEM customers focusing on database servers for Internet search, online transaction processing, video on demand, and many other input/output ("I/O") intensive applications.
