Dot Hill Provides Virtual RAID Adapter Technology For Upcoming AMD Chipsets

LONGMONT, Colo., Jan. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dot Hill Systems Corp. (Nasdaq:HILL), a leading provider of RAID storage solutions, announced its Virtual RAID Adapter (AssuredVRA™) software has been selected by AMD (NYSE:AMD) in support of the AMD A-Series APU chipset in 2013.

The new VRA-for-motherboard solution is based on Dot Hill's AssuredVRA technology for software RAID requirements across a variety of potential platforms. VRAs replace traditional RAID-on-motherboard (ROMB) solutions with a robust data protection solution for internal storage that rivals more expensive add-in card-based RAID controllers. Eliminating the need for such controllers along with the associated power, cooling and support costs, VRAs enable businesses to lower storage costs while providing data protection and management for compute-intensive applications.

Dot Hill will offer a basic AssuredVRA driver and web-based management solution for Windows and Linux as part of its storage reference designs to OEMs, ODMs and motherboard manufacturers that use supported AMD core logic chipsets. This will enable support for high-performance RAID protection for disk drives inside AMD based embedded, notebook, desktop and server solutions.

"As our new platforms become available through numerous infrastructure partners, small businesses and enterprises now have a viable and savvy alternative to traditional hardware-based RAID solutions," said Leslie Sobon, corporate vice president, Desktop Product Line, AMD. "We believe Dot Hill is an outstanding go-to-market partner for motherboard-based RAID solutions due to its extensive expertise in designing RAID solutions for industry storage and server OEMs."

"By offering a basic AssuredVRA version for AMD's upcoming platforms, we are enabling their customers to bundle a new class of software RAID with unique after-market upgrade options," said Garrett Wein, vice president of OEM Sales, Dot Hill. "VRAs provide a robust and scalable storage solution for today's entry- to mid-level servers, providing enterprise level features traditionally associated with higher cost systems."
