Chinese consumer electronics manufacturer Huaqi and network storage firm Zetera Corporation are together launching a new family of networked storage products targeted to China and to be sold under Huaqi's "aigo" brand.
Huaqi operates a national network of corporate-owned retail stores and authorized reseller agents, with over 300 outlets throughout all of China. The new aigo Network Storage King family will incorporate Zetera's patented Z-SAN storage networking technology and include 2-bay and 4-bay portable storage devices, offering capacities between 640 gigabytesand 2 terabytes.
"Because portable storage is our largest product segment, it is important for us to take full advantage of the most innovative technical advances in the storage market," said Gao Zhe, general manager of Huaqi's storage department. "Incorporating Z-SAN technology into aigo storage products provides our customers with enhanced sharing, greater scalability, better performance and increased data protection compared to our current line of USB connected devices."
Chuck Cortright, president and CEO of Zetera, said, "Huaqi is an ideal partner for Zetera, because its aigo brand is widely recognized and respected throughout China. We are eager to enable the much acclaimed, tangible benefits of Z-SAN technology to be realized by the broad market in China."
