Ciprico's RAIDCore Boosts IZON's Video Surveillance Technology

Host-based RAID powers industry's leading video surveillance storage appliance to unmatched performance


Minneapolis, MN - October 30, 2007 – Ciprico Inc. (NASDAQ: CPCI), a leading provider of intelligent storage software, solutions and appliances, announced today that IZON Technologies, a leading manufacturer and distributor of fully customizable digital security surveillance systems, is building one of the industry’s highest performing and most flexible video surveillance storage appliances based on the RAIDCore 5000 Series of software based RAID controllers.

RAIDCore’s utilization of the host motherboard’s processing power, coupled with its ability to create virtual arrays of up to 32 drives with any configuration of 4, 8, 12 or 16 port boards using the company’s unique controller spanning technology, allow the system to deliver in excess of 1GB transfer rate to and from drives with low latency and no hardware cache bottlenecks.

“Surveillance solutions with heavy throughput requirements have traditionally utilized expensive hardware based RAID controllers, limiting the performance and scalability of these security appliances,” said Andy Mills, Vice President of Marketing and Development for Ciprico. “With the wide availability of today’s multi-core CPUs, IZON Technologies can fully optimize RAIDCore to dramatically increase the performance of their video and security platforms, lifting them to entirely new levels.”

“Ciprico’s powerful RAIDCore Technology is a robust architecture with simplicity in mind,” added Jim Hatch, Chief Technology Officer at IZON Technologies. “We vigorously tested the RAIDCore 5000 series cards with our IZON Network Video Recorder (NVR) platform, and were very pleased with the outstanding sustained throughput rates, flexibility, availability, ease of use and extremely low price point."
