June 29, 2011

HAVANT, United Kingdom, June 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/Xyratex Ltd (Nasdaq: XRTX), a leading provider of enterprise class data storage subsystems and hard disk drive capital equipment, announced today that SEPATON and Solera Networks have begun shipping new solutions based on the Xyratex OneStor(TM) platform.

OneStor Integrated Application Platforms are the “next generation” storage solution that enables OEMs to offer their customers more powerful solutions as part of an integrated computing platform. OneStor Integrated Application platforms consolidate a server with storage into a single device. Compute power and memory provide server intelligence and the ability to scale-up (increased capacity) or scale-out (increased compute, I/O performance and capacity) while eliminating additional hardware costs, cabling and complexity of installation as well as minimizing footprint requirements.

“SEPATON has built a strong reputation in very large enterprises as the leader in extremely high performance, enterprise-class data protection platforms capable of protecting petabytes of data in a single system. By leveraging the expertise Xyratex brings to the product design and quality of the OneStor platform, SEPATON is able to extend its leadership data protection solution from the datacenter to the edge of the enterprise with its S2100-DS3 offering,” said Michael Thompson, President & CEO of SEPATON, Inc. “Partnering with Xyratex brings strong platform and integration capabilities which has allowed SEPATON development resources to stay focused on core software competencies while quickly bringing to market an enterprise class branch office solution.”

“Solera Networks is the leader in scalable network forensics solutions and we wanted a partnership that enabled us to deliver our solutions without having to expend our internal resources on application integration and support,” said Steve Shillingford, President & CEO of Solera Networks. “We value the data storage expertise that Xyratex provides and we benefit from the experience they have had with the leading server, storage and application developers. We know we can rely on Xyratex to provide the enterprise quality and reliability that our customers demand.”
