Storage Manufacturer Offers Fast, Secure, Affordable RAID 3 Storage Solutions
(August 1, 2001 - Marina del Rey, CA) Huge Systems, a new manufacturer of RAID 3 Storage Solutions for SDTV and HDTV applications, has opened in Marina del Rey, CA and will be exhibiting their HugeMediaVault™ family of products at the upcoming SIGGRAPH 2001 Exhibition, scheduled for August 14-16, at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
The company was founded last year by Michael H Anderson and Tina Bow. Anderson, who is the chief designer of the HugeMediaVault product, has over 20 years of development experience in the disk storage area. He holds several granted and pending patents in the area of disk storage. Before founding Huge Systems, Anderson designed disk drive software and disk array systems for Micropolis Corporation and was a founder of Medea Corporation. Among his accomplishments, Anderson designed the first commercial RAID 5 system, the first AV optimized disk drives, and the first commercially available Video Server product.
Bow brings over 20 years of experience in business management to Huge Systems and holds the title of Chief Financial Officer.
Huge Systems was founded to build the next generation of storage solutions for the digital media marketplace. The company is committed to providing reliable, secure products that are simple to operate and cost effective to purchase. HugeMediaVault, the company's first product line, meets all these objectives.
With data transfer rates of up to 320 MB/second burst, 200 MB/second sustained using a dual channel controller, HugeMediaVault exceeds the performance specifications for HDTV applications. The product is available in configurations that provide up to 1 TeraByte of total storage, yet can still fit on a desktop. A system providing 300 GigaBytes of storage is priced beginning at only $3473, offering a cost effective, expandable solution for the entertainment industry.
"Huge Systems is providing a new value equation for media storage," explains Mike Anderson. "We offer fault tolerant systems exceeding HDTV throughput requirements that fit on a desktop and cost around $10 per GigaByte. Nobody else even comes close to that."
