       Personal Spacecraft Prototype Showcases SoC Technology at Work


-- Dot Hill Systems Corp. (Nasdaq: HILL), a world-class provider of

entry-level and midrange storage innovations for OEMs and system

integrators (SIs), today announced plans to develop future storage

solutions based on the Intel(R) EP80579 Integrated Processor family,

formerly known as Tolapai.

    The highly integrated System on Chip (SoC) architecture, based on the

same blueprint as Intel's existing processors, will offer new levels of

performance and energy efficiency versus traditional SoCs, combine multiple

functions, and will be customized to target the company's traditional

computing businesses as well as several growth areas. The combination of

the Intel EP80579, Dot Hill's proprietary RAID controller architecture, and

patented PCI interconnect (operating at PCI Express speeds) allows Dot Hill

to leapfrog the competition with its next-generation controllers in terms

of host-attach performance, drive-attach versatility, end-user ease-of-use,

and data management services.

    One application expected to employ the new architecture is the Hermes

Spacecraft (, a private space shuttle project

built on the premise that anyone who wants to take a trip into space should

have the means to do so. The spacecraft, which features a development

version of the Dot Hill next generation RAID controller using the Intel

EP80579, is on display today here at Intel Developer Forum.

    "The Intel EP80579 Integrated Processor is highly synergistic with Dot

Hill's Rapid Evolution Storage Architecture(TM)," said Dana Kammersgard,

Dot Hill's president and chief executive officer. "Our next-generation

storage offerings will be able to put the cost, power and size advantages

of the Intel SoC design to good use, as we work to maintain the competitive

advantage that we provide our customers and partners. As we move to deploy

the EP80579 in future general purpose Dot Hill RAID products, our

experience in developing ruggedized storage for the defense and

transportation industries makes our products particularly well-suited for

use in the emerging market of commercial space flight."
