(Minneapolis, Minnesota--June 1, 2008) Ciprico Inc. (NASDAQ: CPCI), a leading provider of intelligent storage software, solutions and appliances, will be demonstrating a Storage Bridge Bay (SBB) RAID controller running in Advanced Industrial Computer’s (AIC) 12-drive, 2U SBB chassis at the Computex show in Taipei week of June 3rd.
The AIC chassis supports both Ciprico’s own AMD based fully intelligent controller as well as Intel’s new SBB controller reference design. Ciprico’s SBB solution is currently being evaluated by a number of strategic customers and is scheduled to be released this summer.
“SBB standardizes controller and enclosure specifications giving Ciprico the freedom to focus on storage innovation instead of form factor with a vastly reduced development cost and time to market,” said Andy Mills, senior vice president marketing and development at Ciprico. “We chose an SBB based AMD-server class solution for our TALON® 4 product family, and were able to rapidly bring up our controller in AIC’s first SBB chassis demonstrating just how seamless the transition from one chassis to another can be.”
“We are extremely pleased to be working with Ciprico on this project,” said Gene Lee, vice president of AIC. “To further show how flexible our SBB solution is, we are also showing an Intel based SBB controller at Ciprico’s booth for this same chassis to reinforce just how flexible this approach can be.”
The Storage Bridge Bay Working Group is a co-operative, non-profit effort created to drive standardization of external storage to create a set of commons specs to simplify the manufacturing of entry level and mid tier storage devices. Ciprico will be displaying the SBB solution at booth N1204.
