MILPITAS, Calif. -- Adaptec Inc., (NASDAQ:ADPT), a global leader in storage solutions, today unveiled a new family of entry-level Unified Serial(TM) RAID controllers. The new low-profile Series 2 RAID controllers, built on the same Adaptec industry-leading dual core RAID-on-Chip (ROC) architecture used in its successful Series 5 RAID controllers, provide significant performance enhancement and scalability to low-cost data storage systems.

The Series 2 controllers eliminate the limitations of software RAID-based hardware solutions commonly found in entry-level systems, delivering a wide range of advantages for inexpensive SATA and SAS disk and tape drive systems. This includes offering the superior performance of advanced hardware RAID 0, 1 and 10 independent of the server and its operating system; a dramatic increase in data storage system configurability through the controllers' innovative internal and external port architecture; greater support of Open Source drivers; and no vulnerability to viruses. With these controllers, Adaptec provides system integrators, value-added resellers, OEMs, and enterprise data centers with the ability to meet a wide range of data storage I/O (input/output) requirements using entry-level systems.

"The Adaptec Series 2 family is critical to our comprehensive line of Unified Serial RAID controllers," said Suresh Panikar, director, Worldwide Marketing, Adaptec. "Customers who have specific storage needs -- increased RAID performance for disk drives, tape backup, or are working with applications based on Linux -- will find our Series 2 controllers exceed those needs."
