High performance access to file storage

Quantum has announced that its Atlas 10K and Atlas IV hard drive families be ready to roll in the first half of next year. At the same time, Quantum has said that it will now enter the fibre channel arena and will show devices at Comdex/Fall in Las Vegas in November. Ron Torton, director of programme marketing for Quantum's workstation storage group, said: "The Atlas 10K is the performance flagship. We have the fastest seek time, which is clearly beneficial." The 10K incorporates Ultra 160/m SCSI, the latest interface for the standard. The Atlas IV family will be available in Q1 of 1999 and comes in 9GB, 18GB and 36GB sizes, with pricing around $595, $895 and $1495 respectively. The Quantum flagship product will arrive in Q2 of 1999, with pricing at around $795, $1195 and $1995, respectively. The shock protection system Quantum builds into its drives mean failure of components after shipping from its factories is much reduced, claimed Torton. ® See Quantum/MKE deck wafer facility Click for more stories Click for story index
