Driving Storage Advancement through Innovation

We recognize that building world class products takes a serious commitment to engineering and intellectual property. We are proud to count many creative technologists in our engineering teams who have developed a range of patented inventions covering numerous aspects of our product offerings, from the software, to the controllers, and data management software that makes our solutions work.

Since 1984, we have concentrated on innovation to improve our storage products. With that unrelenting focus we have built some truly excellent products that dominate in the entry level storage arena. Our unique solutions are based on patents for software, hardware, disk systems, chassis, RAID arrays, storage servers, data management services, controllers, and power supplies that make our storage more reliable and secure year after year.

Awards and Recognition

Our patent portfolio has been analyzed and recognized for its strength by patent strategy experts in the industry such as MDB Capital and ipCapital Group. At the Bright Lights conference 2010, Dot Hill was recognized as being one of the top five companies in its peer group of microcap stocks. A detailed study by ipCapital Group ( 565KB) ranked Dot Hill’s portfolio as #1 in a group of peer storage companies based on its methodology which has been shown to be predictive of potential intellectual property value – using geographic coverage, citations, and patent age.
