CompAmerica Releases High Availability PC Models Which Automatically Recover from Hard Drive Failure

Wed Sep 1, 8:00 AM ET

(PRWEB) September 1, 2004 -- CompAmerica (http://compamericadirect.com) has announced an exciting new series of personal computers: Eagle VFTA™. The new PC models are said to support the emerging VFTA™ Standard for high availability and fault tolerance. The VFTA™ Standard is explained at: http://vfta.org.

 

CompAmerica says its new Eagle VFTA™ PCs are designed to protect customer investment in data and application programs, without sustaining any losses during their lifespan after hard drive failure.

A CompAmerica spokesperson indicated the new models may be purchased with or without the VFTA high availability option. The VFTA opion may even be added "in the field".

CompAmerica's Eagle VFTA™ PCs start at around $499 (in the USA). The optional VFTA Drive and other features may be purchased for as little as $89 extra.

A company spokesperson stated: "Eagle VFTA™ PCs have a better cabinet design, better air flow, and a better power supply design than competing brands do. VFTA™ adds even higher reliability. Our customers face over 96% less risk of catastrophic system failure and 99% less chance of data loss than with other brands."

The company stated that VFTA™ was capable of several key features:

a)    User may reboot a PC even if the primary ("C:") drive completely failed during operation. No loss of Data and no Windows reload.

b)    PC O/S and Data are automatically backed up. All files and the Windows O/S are restorable. Immediate restart from the backup copy. No Data or O/S loss.

c) Replacement hard drive restored automatically after installation, no operating system or data reloading needed by the user.

c)    Save older versions of data files without intervention. Files manually deleted by accident or whose content was accidentally replaced can be instantly recovered. Versions of files that were free from virus corruption are always available.

"Such data security features considered unimaginable from Windows PCs are now available from CompAmerica!" stated the spokesperson, "Try rebooting your typical PC after the C: Drive failed completely. Ours do so without replacing it, without even reloading Windows first! You can retreive a file you had modified many times over: go back in time and get that crucial paragraph you deleted weeks ago! That's a real boon for those who work extensively with revisions of documents."

CompAmerica indicated the same VFTA™ features available for it's PCs, may be ordered for use with its Servers and Laptops.

All CompAmerica PCs are covered by a comprehensive 5 Year Labor Limited Warranty and 24x7 Free Tech Support by web/phone. All CompAmerica Laptops have an available optional +2 or +3 Year Extended Warranty plan covering parts and labor.

For more information, contact the company or consult with it's website. CompAmerica, located at http://www.compamericadirect.com in the United States, is a leading internet and direct seller and manufacturer of fine personal computers, laptops and servers.

The company may be reached by toll free call at: 888-275-2771 or by email at esales@compamericadirect.com .

VFTA is a service mark of CompAmerica and the VFTA Consortium.
