Carlsbad, California, UNITED STATES

CARLSBAD, Calif., April 15, 2002 (PRIMEZONE) -- Dot Hill today announced that Oldelft Benelux BV, a Dutch systems integrator, has installed Dot Hill's SANnet(r) storage system at the Royal Bronovo Hospital in The Netherlands. Hospitals and medical centers worldwide are increasingly using online imaging technology, which prompts the need for fast, reliable data storage systems.

"The ability to view current and historical X-rays simultaneously gives doctors a broader picture of a patient's medical health," said Guido Geerts, managing director of Oldelft Benelux. "Dot Hill's SANnet systems integrated with Rogan Medical Systems' HyperPACS product suite help physicians make better and faster diagnoses."

"Dot Hill continues to play an important role in the medical imaging marketplace because our SANnet systems provide continuous access to information with virtually no downtime," said Bert van der Woning, Dot Hill's Managing Director EMEA. "Our inroads in this sector are greatly assisted by our experienced network of resellers including Oldelft in The Netherlands."

Dot Hill's industry leading, carrier-class SANnet 7124 Fibre Channel storage systems ensure that information is protected and continuously available. Test results show that SANnet storage systems deliver 99.9998+ percent uptime, that's just 45 seconds unplanned downtime per year -- leading the industry in reliability, availability and survivability. Specifically, the fabric-optimized SANnet 7124 offers higher bandwidth through two redundant pairs of fabric connections between itself and the switch in a storage area network. This results in better performance, more data paths and higher redundancy.
