Santa Clara, CA, August 2, 2001 — Auspex Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: ASPX), a provider of Network Attached Storage (NAS) solutions, today announced the availability of a leasing option for its enterprise file servers that enables customers to apply for lease financing directly from the Auspex web site ( Customers who utilize the lease financing option will reduce the application process to 10 minutes, have access to a diverse funding source network, and receive instant credit decisions.

The new service, provided by the Capital Acceleration Platform™ from Ampent™, eliminates the paperwork and typical 30-day lag time between filing a lease financing application and receiving financing. It also enables Auspex customers to instantly calculate monthly payments, customize payment plans, generate finance documentation, and view their account status online at any time. There is no application fee.

Ampent, a member of the Equipment Leasing Association of America and the United Association of Equipment Leasing, draws on a nationwide network of wholesale funding sources that increases the likelihood of lease financing approval for companies regardless of their credit rating.

“Leasing our file servers can offer significant advantages, ranging from lower-cost financing to conservation of working capital, better cash flow management and tax benefits involving accelerated depreciation,” said Peter Simpson, Chief Financial Officer of Auspex Systems. “Our new online application and loan processing service simplifies the process of securing lease financing and thereby gives customers an attractive option for bringing the storage management and file serving power of Network Attached Storage into their business environment.”
