Dot Hill Systems Corp was formed in 1999 by the combination of Box Hill Systems Corp., or Box Hill, and Artecon, Inc., or Artecon. It reincorporated in Delaware in 2001. It designs, manufactures and markets a range of software and hardware storage systems for the entry and mid-range storage markets. The Company sells its products through server-based original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), such as Hewlett-Packard, or HP, Dell Inc. or Dell, Lenovo Group Limited or Lenovo, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. or AMD, and Stratus Technologies or Stratus; as well as into vertical markets through embedded solutions OEM's, such as Teradata Corporation or Teradata, CGG Veritas or CGG, Motorola, Inc. or Motorola, Tektronix Inc. or Tektronix, Samsung Electronics or Samsung, Concurrent Computer Corporation or Concurrent, Autodesk Inc. or Autodesk, Harris Broadcast Communications and Nokia Siemens Network or Nokia Siemens, which primarily include media and entertainment, telecommunications, high performance computing, digital image archive, big data and oil and gas. The Company's products, from small capacity direct attached to complete multi-hundred terabyte, or TB, storage area networks, or SANs, provide end-users with a cost-effective means of addressing increasing storage demands at compelling price-performance points. The Company's current product family based on its AssuredSAN architecture provides high performance and large disk array capacities for a broad variety of environments, employing Fibre Channel, Internet Small Computer Systems Interface, or iSCSI and Serial Attached SCSI, or SAS, interconnects to switches and/or hosts.
