MILPITAS, Calif. -- Adaptec, Inc. (NasdaqGM:ADPT - News), a global leader in trusted storage solutions, announced today that SoftLayer Technologies, an industry leading on-demand hosting provider offering world-class datacenter capabilities, has standardized on Adaptec Unified Serial RAID controllers for their unique network infrastructure. Adaptec Unified Serial RAID controllers help ensure optimum I/O performance, expanded scalability and high throughput for SoftLayer's next generation virtual IT environments. SoftLayer currently leases thousands of servers to small to medium-sized enterprise customers around the world.

Adaptec is the only vendor currently offering a comprehensive family of serial RAID controllers for the PCI Express (PCIe) interface which consists of five different products and includes 4- and 8-port low-profile models, as well as the industry's only 12- and 16-port designs.

"Adaptec RAID solutions have earned a reputation for proven reliability, which is extremely critical for a network infrastructure supporting over 8,000 active servers," said Jacob Linscott, SoftLayer director of IT systems - UNIX. "In addition to rock solid dependability, Adaptec was the sole vendor that enabled us to completely standardize on a single family of controllers. We looked at LSI and 3ware solutions, but only Adaptec offered a broad line of low- and high-port Unified Serial RAID controllers, which we absolutely needed to help scale and maintain our IT infrastructure and better support our rapidly growing customer base."
