Diskology Adds SATA Adapter to Disk Jockey LineupLow-cost adapter lets Disk Jockey users work with Serial ATA drives (June 11, 2004)
Diskology, Inc. introduced a low-cost serial ATA (SATA) adapter that works specifically with their popular Disk Jockey hard disk cloning / mirroring / erase tool today. The Disk Jockey SATA adapter lets users connect high-performance SATA hard disk drives to the Disk Jockey 's standard parallel ATA (PATA) drive connectors.
"This new SATA adapter definitely keeps us moving forward with new technology such as the new, high-performance SATA hard disk drives," said Tony Overbay, Diskology CEO. "Now our customers can copy, span, mirror, test or erase data on any combination of PATA, SATA or laptop hard disk drives. This makes the Disk Jockey a much more versatile tool."
The Disk Jockey is a revolutionary new portable IDE hard disk cloning device. In additional to performing block-level copies of data at speeds of 2 GB per minute, the Disk Jockey will also span two disks together to appear as one logical volume, mirror hard disk drives for automatic backup, test, compare and erase hard disk drives using either a one-pass erase or a three-pass erase per National Security Administration (NSA) guidelines. The Disk Jockey can also mount drives to a Mac or Windows desktop via a firewire or USB interface. The Disk Jockey recently received a 5 out of 6 star rating from PC Test Pro as well as a 4 mouse rating from MacUser UK.
The Disk Jockey SATA adapters will also help the Disk Jockey provide a more attractive solution to Macintosh IT and MIS managers as all new Macintosh G5 desktop machines now ship with internal SATA drives. Many PC manufacturers are switching to SATA drives as boot drives as well.
"With the SATA adapters, we can dramatically speed up the time it takes to roll out new drives, disk images and integrate new computers into a network across both large and small companies," said Overbay.
Although not specifically tested with competing products, Diskology expects the new SATA adapters to work with any IDE hard disk cloning product. The Disk Jockey SATA adapters are available for $39.95 on the Diskology web store, or from Diskology resellers worldwide. For more information on the Disk Jockey SATA adapters you can visit www.diskology.com or email [email protected]. Diskology recently added longer cables to their product lineup as well as two differing laptop hard disk adapters for use with the $329 MSRP Disk Jockey (street price below $300 from resellers).
Diskology, with headquarters in Lincoln, California, is a leading manufacturer of mid-range to high-end hardware-based hard disk copy and diagnostic tools. Diskology's product lineup includes the Disk Jockey, the revolutionary new "Swiss Army Knife" of hard disk copy and diagnostic products.
