CLEARWATER, Fla. (June 7, 2007) – Tech Data Corporation today announced it has been named the

first distributor for GizMac Accessories LLC XRackPro line of rack-mount enclosure cabinets for

Apple Xserve servers and RAID storage devices. Designed to reduce noise by as much as 80 percent

compared to standard server and storage racks, the XRackPro series is ideal for Apple users in small

offices, A/V production studios, corporate creative departments, classrooms and other environments.

“The GizMac XRackPro cabinets strongly complement the style, design and functionality of the

Apple-centric solutions our resellers create for a wide range of end users,” said Brian Davis, Tech

Data’s vice president, Client Systems Product Marketing. “For our Apple customers selling Xserve

servers and RAID storage, the XRackPro cabinets are a compelling add-on opportunity that help

build margins and enable resellers to deliver a more complete solution.”

Through its AppleAdvantage Specialized Business Unit (SBU), Tech Data will distribute 4U, 6U, 12U

and 25U XRackPro cabinets. The XRackPro line features a sound-dampening and rugged structural

design; secure, locking glass door; rolling casters for enhanced mobility; and quiet fans to keep

components cool. In addition to Apple Xserve server and RAID devices, the XRackPro can house

other rack-mounted devices. The XRackPro also accommodates most servers, storage arrays,

routers, switches and other devices from leading manufacturers like HP, IBM and Cisco. This enables

resellers to deploy an extensive array of networking, storage, telephony and professional A/V

solutions in a wide range of vertical markets.
