New SAS/SATA chassis offers high-efficiency power supply and SPGC pre-plated chassis design

City of Industry, CA – July 24, 2008 – Advanced Industrial Computer (AIC), an industry leading provider of OEM/ODM server and storage solutions, announced today the release of its’ new G-Series SAS/SATA storage server chassis product line. The environmentally friendly solution features high-efficiency power supply, SPGC pre-plated steel with minimal paint and tool-less ball-bearing mounting rails for hassle free installation and maintenance, providing users with a cost-effective solution ideally suited for a broad range of applications.

The new G-Series SAS/SATA chassis offers a high-efficiency, redundant power supply that reduces power consumption significantly, making it not only cost-effective but environmentally conscious as well. With reduction in power usage at 50% power load under 230V-input, systems use an average of 224W less power, with more than 84% efficiency. The G-Series is not only environmentally sound, but provides users cost savings of over $16.50 per month per system. The G-series SAS/SATA chassis reduces environmental impact further with its’ use of SPGC pre-plated steel materials and minimal paint.

In addition to the G-Series’ innovative new green design, the SAS server chassis also offers improved system quality with its ball-bearing industrial mounting rails and tool-less design. AIC’s tool-less design reduces both rack installation time and system maintenance costs. Overall time saving for users is measurable, reducing installation to an average of 10 minutes per system versus the standard 1 to 2 hours per installation. System quality and performance has also been improved with larger, hot-swappable, lower RPM cooling fans, resulting in better cooling, reduced system vibration and acoustic noise.

The sleek new G-Series SAS/SATA chassis design is the ideal choice for applications requiring environmentally friendly systems with high efficiency power supplies. With hard-tool production, the G-Series lowers costs and increases manufacturing efficiency. Other G-Series features include: hot-swappable rear OS drive option for easy access and lockable drive carriers for data security and protection. Future enhancements for the G-Series will include a wide variety of configurations and storage capacities to suit the unique demands of a broad range of applications.

“Our newest G-Series chassis offers manufacturers a cost-effective, environmentally conscious storage chassis solution,” said Gene Lee, the Corporate Vice President of AIC. “With the tool-less design and high-efficiency power supply, the G-Series is not only good for the environment, but good for our customer’s production costs as well.”
