Hayward, CA-- Dynamic Network Factory, a leading developer of high performance, reliable and affordable storage solutions, introduces the TaskMaster 16000 RAID series, which offers storage capacities from 288GB to 6.5 TeraBytes utilizing Ultra320 SCSI hard drives for high volume, fail-safe data storage applications.

TaskMaster 16000 RAID is equipped with an Ultra160 SCSI RAID controller to offer fault-tolerant data protection. It is 100% transparent to the host operating system and requires no custom drivers. It is a full-featured data protection subsystem supporting RAID levels 0, 1, 0+1, 3, 5, and JBOD. It is the ideal storage solution for applications requiring high data throughput, availability, and flexibility in configuration.

The TaskMaster 16000 is available in a variety of configurations using Ultra320 SCSI hard drives and Ultra160 SCSI controllers ranging from 288GB to 6,500GB. Single controller units include an environmental monitoring unit, with an audible alarm to provide notification via pager or fax, to ensure system reliability. All of the major components are also redundant and removable to ensure easy serviceability. All units include load sharing triple redundant power supplies to minimize potential downtime. Dual redundant Ultra160 SCSI controllers are also available. With dual Ultra160 SCSI host ports the TaskMaster 16000 is extremely flexible and scalable.

This client-side software can be used on direct-attached storage and SANs, providing a transparent volume sharing solution, allowing multiple users to work simultaneously on a single NTFS volume, thus increasing productivity and avoiding the downtime associated with leaving a single computer in control.
