Affordable Storage for Cloud Environments

LONGMONT, Colo., Oct. 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dot Hill Systems Corp.
(Nasdaq:HILL), a leading provider of SAN storage products, today announced
that C7 Data Centers, a leader in outsourced IT solutions, has selected Dot
Hill's AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series 100 terabyte offering, with real-time
automated tiering for single tenant private cloud solutions. C7 Data Centers
is incorporating the AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series into its recently introduced
private cloud configuration which provides affordable cloud-based redundancy
for physical and virtual production environments.

"Many companies are looking at cloud implementations to grow IT resources
without increasing support and hardware costs," said Jim Jonez, senior
director of marketing, Dot Hill. "C7 Data Centers and Dot Hill are working
together to provide a responsive, reliable, and cost-effective infrastructure.
The Dot Hill AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series allows cloud customers to increase
capacity without having to purchase additional licenses, providing savings to
their bottom line."

"We're confident that in our FuseApp Private Cloud and Private Cloud Suite
solutions we've found the right mix of technologies to provide a robust,
affordable failover solution for physical and virtual production environments
that is easy to scale," said Wes Swenson, CEO, C7 Data Centers. "The Dot Hill
AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series provides 99.999 percent availability and real-time
tiering – features that meet the performance requirements of a production
site."

The AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series features built-in intelligence that responds to
data access needs autonomically, or without human intervention or policy
setting. The AssuredSAN Pro Series, with RealStor™ software takes tiered
storage to a new level – beyond other automated tiered storage systems using
off-hours batch migration, and into a new era of autonomic, real-time data
tiering.

The AssuredSAN Pro 5000 Series is a high-performance, highly available and
reliable integrated storage array that delivers consistently faster access to
current data with built-in, real-time autonomic tiered storage and
virtualization. The AssuredSAN Pro Series detects priorities for data access
immediately to optimize the delivery of priority/high demand data in real
time. Faster I/O is achieved in part through real-time, automated data
tiering, which prioritizes data files, volumes or blocks between tiered
storage using built-in analysis and data scoring.
