LAS VEGAS -- Rorke Data Inc., a data storage solutions provider and wholly owned subsidiary of Bell Microproducts (OTC: BELM.PK), announced today the general availability of its new Galaxy Aurora LS (LiteSpeed) direct-attached RAID and SAN appliance. Designed with four 8Gbit Fibre Channel host connections, the Galaxy Aurora LS is the highest performing RAID in its class with sustained transfer rates of over 1000 MB/s and rebuild times up to 6X faster than hardware-based RAID solutions. It supports multiple uncompressed HD streams or 2K film, making it ideal for the film or video post production industries.

With an MSRP starting at less than 70 cents per gigabyte, the Galaxy Aurora LS fills a gap in the market by giving smaller post production workgroups access to high performance storage that had previously been cost prohibitive.

According to Robert Herzan, Rorke Data’s vice president of sales, “Rorke Data has a long and successful history in the media market. Our expertise has lead to thousands of installations and our storage solutions are used by the most prominent names in the industry. We are excited that the Galaxy Aurora LS is now the highest-performing product at this price point in the market today. We designed it around our customers’ needs and made it universally supportive of any operating systems and audio/video applications.”
