"Dot Hill Systems Corp. (NYSE: HIL), a leading independent provider of storage and SAN solutions, today announced that Northern Lights Computer Inc., a leading provider of turn-key Linux solutions in Japan, has chosen to resell Dot Hill's SANnet systems to its customers in need of high-end storage area networks (SANs) and tape backup. This strategic partnership leverages both companies' core expertise in providing solutions to the Linux community. "

"Dot Hill and Northern Lights are kicking-off their partnership by showing their joint solution in Northern Lights' booth at the LinuxWorld show in Japan on May 11th and 12th, which demonstrates e-commerce and other applications being performed on Northern Lights' rack mount and Linux database servers and Dot Hill's SANnet solution. Also at the show and in conjunction with Northern Lights, Jim Wayda, Vice President of Software Engineering at Dot Hill, is presenting to the Japanese Linux community, the University of Minnesota's Global File System (GFS) dlocks 0.9.6 proposed specification, which he co-authored. Northern Lights and Dot Hill also are conducting a joint press conference describing their solutions."

"We chose Dot Hill because SANnet is the best storage system for Linux-based SANs, and our customers expect the best," said Nobuo Kita, Chief Executive Officer of Northern Lights. "SANnet delivers the most reliable, highest density and highest performance storage systems for the Linux platform today, at a reasonable cost. We also chose Dot Hill because of SANnet's unique ability to support GFS dlocks within the RAID controller, and Dot Hill's focus on and expertise in Linux. Dot Hill understands Linux like no other storage company."
