    SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- RAID storage expert
 Infortrend(R) today announced that MPIO driver programs are now available for

 Multi-path I/O (MPIO) driver program, Infortrend has developed its own set of
 drivers to facilitate running the MPIO solution on a variety of their RAID
 storage subsystems. Installing this MPIO driver program extends redundancy to
 the entire I/O path to deliver load balancing, fault tolerance, and high
 availability storage solutions.
     "Integrating Path Aware capabilities within the operating system will
 enhance overall system reliability," stated Alan Johnson, director of product
 application engineering for Infortrend. "Infortrend's redundant controller
 configurations coupled with MPIO delivers true end-to-end resilience and high
 performance to users."
     Infortrend's MPIO driver is designed for use with the EonStor product
 lines including its Fibre-to-Fibre, Fibre-to-SATA and iSCSI-to-SATA series of
 RAID subsystems or disk array systems using EonRAID 2510FS controller head
     These MPIO drivers support Windows 2003 X86 and 64-bit editions and are
