Adaptec RAID Drivers Integrated Into Microsoft Windows XP

Adaptec, Inc. this week announced the integration of its RAID drivers in the professional release of Microsoft's Windows XP operating system.

Adaptec said this promises to speed the adoption of data protection for PC workstations and gives builders of non-branded systems the same Windows support enjoyed by their brand counterparts.

"We've enabled our RAID controllers for Windows XP to help accelerate the adoption of data protection for PCs," said Robert Cox, manager of channel RAID marketing for Adaptec's Storage Solutions Group. "Adaptec's controllers complement Windows XP's performance and reliability and are a good match not only for white box servers but for workstations based on the new operating system."

The Adaptec driver provides Windows XP support for the Adaptec SCSI RAID 2100S, a single-channel Ultra160 RAID card, and the Adaptec ATA RAID 2400A, a four-channel ATA RAID card.
