"LAND-5 Corporation, a San Diego-based manufacturer of disk RAID arrays, tape RAID arrays and network attached storage solutions, now provides an assortment of fault-tolerant disk RAID arrays and network attached storage solutions to Linux resellers, developers and integrators. LAND-5's "plug and play" ICEbox RAID and JBOD storage systems offer economical solutions for on-line mission-critical environments such as web servers, e-mail servers, e-commerce applications and databases."

"Linux's multi-tasking nature, stability and community-based support system has provided a natural breeding ground for developing on-line solutions," remarks Al Kernek, LAND-5's Vice President of Marketing. "LAND-5's technology continues the maturation of the Linux movement by providing affordable and reliable `Linux-friendly' storage solutions. ICEbox storage solutions are "plug and play" compatible with SCSI-based Linux servers and industry standard networks."

"LAND-5's Linux-friendly solutions include external disk RAID arrays, tape RAID arrays and network attached storage (NAS) systems. The ICEbox DS 2000, a compact rack-mountable disk RAID storage system, performs parallel reads and writes on up to eighteen spindles and is scalable to several terabytes of on-line storage. Designed to provide high-performance access to critical information, the DS 2000 offers multiple host connectivity in a "plug and play" environment. A resident hardware RAID controller with optional active/active redundant controllers enhances system performance, enabling the DS 2000 to serve all mission critical applications. Up to six DS 2000 systems can be configured in a single RETMA rack for almost four terabytes of online storage."
