Storage Solutions

LONGMONT, Colo., March 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dot Hill Systems Corp.
(Nasdaq:HILL), a provider of world-class storage solutions and software, today
announced that its AssuredSAN™ 4000 series storage arrays are 'DataCore Ready'
and provide full interoperability with the SANsymphony-V storage hypervisor
from DataCore Software.

"DataCore SANsymphony-V can address many of the storage challenges faced by
customers today; data migration and storage re-deployment is one example of an
application that can help end users do more with their IT investments during
tough economic times," stated Andy Hooper, general manager for storage
solutions at Hammer. "Dot Hill's performance flagship AssuredSAN 4000 series
and the level 1 caching capabilities of SANsymphony-V also provide an
incredible foundation for customers looking to address storage performance

The AssuredSAN 4000 series is the second Dot Hill platform to achieve the
DataCore Ready certification following in the footsteps of the AssuredSAN 3000
earlier this year. The high performance AssuredSAN 4000 compliments the
AssuredSAN 3000 by providing users with data transfer speeds of up to 5200
MB/s read and 3000 MB/s write. This delivers an excellent high performance
storage infrastructure which can be further enhanced with DataCore's level 1
caching technology. The combination of Dot Hill AssuredSAN storage and
DataCore's SANsymphony-V storage hypervisor can also assist end users in
simplifying storage management and greatly improving data availability.
Certification under the DataCore Ready program provides end users with the
confidence that Dot Hill AssuredSAN 4000 storage solutions have undergone
verification testing to ensure joint solution compatibility.

The DataCore storage hypervisor will enable Dot Hill's AssuredSAN 4000 series
with added performance acceleration through adaptive caching, space efficiency
with thin provisioning and a multitude of high availability (HA) features
including synchronous mirroring, and continuous data protection (CDP) for any
point-in-time backup and recovery.

"There is great synergy between Dot Hill and DataCore technology, our entire
product range is designed from the ground up for high availability and when
combined with DataCore's storage virtualization and management software a
deployment architecture is achieved where single points of failure are
eliminated," stated Jim Jonez, senior director marketing at Dot Hill. "This
allows both our channel partners and end users to leverage a solid scalable
storage solution that will improve business continuity and boost performance
at a very attractive price point through our affinity discount program."
