                   RR (RocketRAID)
                   Internal (connects to internal storage through SATA and
                    multilane interfaces)
                   External (connects to external storage through external
                    eSATA, multilane, mini-SAS interfaces)
                   Hybrid (connects internal storage through SATA and
                    external eSATA, multilane interfaces)

    Two propriety technologies in the RocketRAID series of SATA RAID
controllers offer the most advanced data protection and performance features
for Apple platforms.

    TerabyteStream(TM) is an intelligent cache algorithm technology that
provides the performance needed for bandwidth intensive applications like
SD/HD video editing and media streaming.

    TerabyteGuard(TM) ensures data is always protected and available with
hard disk bad sector repair / remapping. Disk Scrubbing removes bad sectors
from hard disk preventing storage failures.

    The RocketRAID 3000 series was first to offer a SATA RAID 6 controller to
support the Mac. All RocketRAID series support RAID levels (0, 1,5,10 and 50)
and it is the first to support SMART monitoring for predicting possible drive
failures before disasters occur. The HighPoint web GUI lets users manage,
monitor and maintain with an easy to use interface.

    HighPoint has established a close relation with storage partners in the
external storage industry.

    "We are proud to be the industry's first SATA RAID solution provider to
announce support for Leopard," said Michael Whang, President and CEO of
HighPoint Technologies.
