Headquartered in Milpitas, California with several offices across the world, Adaptec is a computer hardware manufacture that specializes in host adapters for interconnecting computers and storage devices. With more than 26 years experience in the storage I/O marketplace, the company is a leading provider of storage hardware and software solutions. Adaptec products are designed to interface with USB, Firewire, FibreChannel, SCSI, iSCSI and Serial ATA as well as audio and video. Adaptec RAID controllers consist of an impressive lineup that provides customers with solutions to enhance performance, reliability and manageability in their IT environments.
Adaptec has been involved in many initiatives during its near three decade tenor. This includes the creation of the popular Easy CD Creator, a CD/DVD burning software package bundled with many earlier CD/DVD writers. Though the product is now obsolete, it is still supported by Roxio, an Adaptec spinoff. The company recently made significant waves in the SAN market with the introduction of its dedicated SAS-based stored appliance. This Adaptec RAID controller provides high-performance, cost-efficient, highly reliable storage for customers with mission-critical application servers. Always receiving industry recognition, Adaptec was honored in 2008 as InfoWorld named its Snap Server 720i with the highly coveted “Best Entry-Level SAN.”
A long-time leader in the data storage industry, Adaptec actively participates in a number of storage market organizations committed to setting new standards within the marketplace. Some of the most notable entities include the SATA-IO (Serial ATA International Organization) and the STA (SCSI Trade Association) among others. Adaptec is also a certified member of the Green Grid, a global consortium focused on enhancing energy efficiency in IT data centers and business computing ecosystems. When considering the success the company has achieved, one can only assume that Adaptec’s Green Power initiative will play a major role in reducing energy consumption in some of today’s major markets.
