Paralan, (www.paralan.com) today announced the availability of two new 3.5 inch HVD SCSI hard drives. Both the 250 gigabyte SHD-250 and the 500 gigabyte SHD-500 can be factory configured to look like smaller capacity HVD SCSI drives for those systems that have a smaller maximum drive capacity.

The new drives allow military, manufacturing and industrial applications to easily replace their old and failing HVD hard drives with faster, larger and more modern SATA based HVD SCSI drives. The SHD 250 and SHD 500 are basically 2.5 inch SATA drives converted to have the same physical form and connections and communicate as 3.5 inch 68 pin wide HVD SCSI drives.

"Don't replace the entire system, just update the storage," says Marc Brooks, CEO of Paralan. "Many of our industrial customers have been telling us they cannot find replacements for their HVD SCSI drives and have been using expensive workarounds or purchasing entire new systems. Now they can simply unplug the old dying or dead HVD SCSI drive and connect a new Paralan SHD series drive."

Until now, no one has manufactured HVD SCSI Hard Drives for about five years. There are tens of thousands of military and industrial systems in the world that still use HVD SCSI as their storage solution. To fill this need, Paralan has developed the new SHD series HVD SCSI drives.

For those systems with limited storage bandwidth, Paralan can supply any of the SHD Series HVD SCSI drives in a range of storage capacities to allow industrial engineers to match the storage capacity of the new drives to the storage capacity of the existing system.

Prices for the SHD-250 and the SHD-500 start off at $495 and $595 in single unit quantities respectively. Quantity discounts are available.
