-Eurocom Joins Prominent SandForce Driven™ Program as the First Desktop, Notebook and Workstation System Vendor
-SSDs based on SandForce® Accelerate and Differentiate Eurocom Build-to-Order System Solutions

OTTAWA, ONTARIO and SARATOGA, CA – December 14, 2010 – Eurocom Corp., the leading developer of desktop replacement and mobile workstation technology, announced today that they have joined the increasingly popular SandForce Driven™ program, which enables end-users to easily identify a solid state drive (SSD) or now, even complete computing systems use SandForce® SSD Processors which optimize media storage access for an overall enhanced user experience. The program is now expanded to include system manufacturers that provide NAND Flash SSDs based on SandForce either as a standard storage configuration or as an option for build-to-order systems.

"The addition of SandForce Driven SSDs, specifically the OCZ® Vertex 2 with a SandForce SF-1200 controller, to our overall multi vendor SSD product offering of MLC and SLC drives from Solidata, Kingston, Intel and Micron adds another premier storage option for our clients who always demand the best,” said Mark Bialic, President of Eurocom. “Eurocom is proud to be the first system developer to participate in the SandForce Driven program, and now our customers are ensured of having access to the highest quality SSDs with the most advanced technology on the market today.”

Striving to deliver ultimate portability, capability and productivity for the most demanding applications, Eurocom chose SandForce Driven SSDs, with the cutting-edge DuraClass™ technology, in conjunction with its Mobile Workstations and Mobile Servers powered by Intel Xeon and Core processors to keep pace with CAD/CAM and 3D designers, engineers, architects, animators, and digital content creators who frequently travel and need access to powerful and energy-efficient computing. With the option of “hybrid” SSD and HDD arrays, including the option of a 4-way SandForce Driven OCZ Vertex 2 480GB SSD in a RAID 10 configuration, Eurocom’s desktop-rivaling portable systems also feature RAID 0, 1, or 5 options for maximized storage potential, further leveraging the benefits of SandForce Driven drives in these computing powerhouses. The demand for premium performance and unmatched reliability by Eurocom customers is the perfect arena for SandForce SSD offerings, and Eurocom is committed to continuous growth in the system integration market segment.

"SandForce is excited to welcome Eurocom and their high-performance systems to the SandForce Driven program further expanding the penetration of SSDs in the market,” said Kent Smith, Senior Director of Product Marketing for SandForce. “Expanding the program beyond SSD manufacturers enables users to easily identify systems that are natively available with our innovative SSD Processors."
