"Agaté Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB: AGTE) today announced the release of its popular HotData ShuttleTM hot swap IDE Plug & Play solution, designed to support the Linux operating system on Intel based workstations and Internet Server Appliances."

"IDE hot swap is an industry term used to describe technology, which allows a component of a computer, such as a hard drive, to be attached or detached physically and electrically without impeding the performance and state of the computer. Agaté provides this hot swap data-transfer capability by integrating its proprietary ASCII HotChipTM with an interface Printed Circuit Board (PCB) mounted in a generic device bay. The end result is the only true hot swap solution available today."

"Linux is all about open systems and cross-platforms," said Francis Khoo, Chief Executive Officer at Agaté. "HotData Shuttle fits that spirit of interoperability perfectly. Our belief is that HotData Shuttle will set a standard unmatched by any other technology in terms of robustness, scalability and features that will achieve remarkable acceptance and usage in the Linux world.
