Compaq to Deliver "Universal" Storage Devices

Compaq Computer Corp. announced a strategy for "universal" storage devices based on Ultra3 technology that span the workgroup to the data center. Designed for all Compaq ProLiant and Alpha servers, the soon-to-be-released Ultra3 drives and options offer twice the speed of previous versions with data transfers up to 160 MB per second in Ultra160 configurations.

All Ultra3 devices from Compaq will be compatible with previous Ultra2 devices, so that users can mix and match drives. This extends the life of existing Ultra2 servers and storage enclosures for maximum investment protection. Compaq customers can move to the latest high-speed Ultra3 technology quickly and easily without replacing their entire server and storage infrastructure.

The new Ultra3 devices are key components of Compaq's Enterprise Network Storage Architecture (ENSA), a comprehensive approach to building the storage utility for Compaq NonStop e-business, allowing storage to be a highly available and flexible shared resource throughout the enterprise. Compaq's ENSA approach leverages industry standards, such as Ultra3 technology, to deliver storage solutions to every application environment on the network.
