SILICON MECHANICS ANNOUNCES AVAILABILITY OF SPARES KITS


Configurable spare parts kits will help customers save time, maximize system availability,
and protect investments in hardware and warranty coverage.

BOTHELL, WA — March 19, 2008 — Silicon Mechanics, Inc., a leading provider of rackmount servers, storage, and high-performance computing solutions, today announced the launch of spare parts kits for their most popular server models. The spares kits, which are available online in highly flexible custom configurations, are designed to maximize system availability by making replacement components easy to buy. The components in the spares kits can also be used to upgrade existing server models.

For many customers who have invested in an extended warranty, spares kits can have a dramatic effect on their ability to realize the fullest return on that investment. Spares kits keep warranty response time to a minimum, as there is no delay in obtaining on-site replacement parts before dispatching repair technicians.
