<p>World’s First Scalable NAS Solution to Break the A$10/GB Barrier</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia – October 14, 2003 – Snap Appliance, the world leader in network-attached storage (NAS) solutions, breaks new ground in scalable, affordable NAS technology with the introduction of the Snap Disk 10 – a 1U, one terabyte expansion array engineered for use with the award-winning Snap Server® 4500. By providing up to 3TB of native capacity in only 3U of rack space, this unbeatable combination offers businesses an affordable way to scale storage infrastructure, without increasing management complexity.</p>
<p>The Snap Disk 10 perfectly addresses the cost, complexity and manageability challenges companies face today due to explosive storage growth. IT staff can easily justify the business case – simple, cost-effective and non-disruptive scalability as terabytes of storage capacity are added.</p>

"By adding capacity with the Snap Disk 10, customers now have an option to protect the investment they’ve made in the Snap Server 4500, without increasing management complexity."</p>

With four hot swappable disk drives, RAID and antivirus protection, the Snap Disk 10 offers continuous availability of business-critical data, along with benefits such as Snapshot technology and data replication for reliable backup and recovery.</p>
