LONDON, Oct 15, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- i365(TM), Inc., A Seagate Company (NASDAQ:STX), today announced the launch of their EVault online backup and recovery Software as a Service (SaaS) and Managed Service offerings in Europe, extending the company's secure, reliable, world class infrastructure to protect businesses' critical data directly over the Internet. Now European companies have the flexibility to choose among software, SaaS or a managed service with innovative EVault technology that is relied upon by 22,000 small, mid-sized and enterprise customers worldwide.

The launch of EVault SaaS and Managed Service online backup and recovery offerings for Europe is a key part of the company's European expansion strategy. i365 is extending its top tier, SAS 70 Type II, and ISO 9001:2000 certified data protection infrastructure with data centers across Europe -- including Luxembourg, and the United Kingdom followed by Germany by end of year, with more to follow in 2009. The company is also executing an aggressive expansion of its European sales and customer support organizations and partner network to support both the SaaS and software solutions for data protection.

"The European Storage-as-a-Service market is still in its infancy and is rather fragmented with small local SaaS offerings. There is no clear leader for the market yet, and it is wide open for a targeted company like i365 to capture early adopter customers," said Carla Arend, program manager, European storage software and services research at IDC. "i365 is investing in the market at the right time and European organizations will benefit from the entrance of an experienced SaaS player."

Available now in Europe, EVault SaaS and EVault Managed Service solutions deliver state of the art automated online backup and recovery services to protect desktop, laptop and server data across an organization - without additional capital or IT expenses. Using EVault DeltaPro(TM) technology to optimize performance and efficiencies, only new and changed data at the block level is compressed, encrypted, and transmitted offsite to one of i365's secure European data centers where it is further de-duplicated. Customers can easily access, manage and restore data through a simple web interface that reduces the complexity of data protection freeing up resources to focus on other business critical applications.

Other key features of the EVault SaaS offerings include flexible packaging and pricing, easy deployment and management, broad platform support, multiple options for data recovery, and 24 x 7 phone support for critical issues. The services are available in English, French, German and Spanish.

"Thousands of companies already entrust their data with EVault online backup and recovery software in Europe. Now European businesses can receive the same flexibility afforded by our customers in the US, the flexibility of deploying the technology as a service or software," said Shail Khiyara, senior vice president of the i365 Data Protection business unit of i365, A Seagate Company. "Our innovative technology, and exemplary services and support combined with multiple Tier III & IV SAS 70 Type II data centers assist i365 in meeting the stringent data protection and compliance requirements expected by European companies."
