Performance, Breadth of Coverage and Ease of Use Unified In One Fully-Integrated Data Protection Platform; Data Deduplication, Replication, Microsoft SharePoint and VMware Support Added

Sept. 24, 2007-EMERYVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EVault, Inc., a Seagate Technology (NYSE:STX - News) company, today announced the EVault Unified Recovery platform powered by InfoStage 6, delivering the industry's only fully integrated data protection platform for both physical and virtual environments available in Software as a Service (SaaS), licensed software or managed services delivery options. Extending already advanced technology that more than 20,000 customers worldwide rely on, the EVault Unified Recovery platform is built to scale; simplifies data protection for complex IT environments and decreases the possibility of downtime for small, mid and large sized enterprises.

"Companies big and small are under constant pressure to manage and protect critical data in complex environments, both in the data center and across multiple remote locations," said Lauren Whitehouse, analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. "EVault's Unified Recovery platform with its seamless integration and delivery options strengthens EVault's position to meet customer needs, and easily scale as customers grow."

EVault Industry Firsts:

With this announcement, EVault offers several industry firsts, including:

    * A fully integrated, single vendor "unified recovery platform" for physical and virtual environments with WAN optimization and data reduction at the source, combined with data deduplication at the target
    * Backup and recovery SaaS with "hot" backups and granular document-level recovery for Microsoft SharePoint servers
    * Complete delivery options: SaaS, Software, Managed Services

Unparalleled Performance:

Enhanced Data Deduplication: EVault's patent-pending DeltaPro(TM) technology already reduces data by compressing and encrypting only new and changed data at the block level to optimize performance over the WAN. EVault's new fully-integrated data deduplication technology further enhances the benefits of DeltaPro by eliminating redundant blocks of data within backup jobs held in storage, increasing customer's return on storage resources without compromising performance, scalability or requiring an appliance.

Replication: EVault InfoStage UltraRecovery provides seamless and optimized replication of the primary backup site to an alternate disaster recovery location. EVault InfoStage LocalRecovery enables remote offices to create a local backup vault for improved backup and recovery times at local area network speeds, while also automatically replicating data to a centralized disaster recovery site.

"OptimumBank is a leading community bank in Florida hurricane country, and EVault InfoStage offers us peace of mind," said Seth Goldstein, vice president of information systems at OptimumBank. "We plan to use EVault InfoStage LocalRecovery for our remote branch backup and recovery strategy with each bank branch having a local vault to decrease the backup window and improve recovery times, while our offsite storage is used for disaster protection. This will offer us the best of both worlds in data protection."

Eliminating IT Complexity

The EVault Unified Recovery platform streamlines anywhere, anytime management of the entire data protection environment. The browser-based dashboard provides a single point of management for data centers and remote offices. New customization, streamlined management and customer support capabilities help eliminate guesswork, simplify setup, and facilitate meeting Service Level Agreements (SLAs). EVault's breadth of platform and application support, among the industry's widest, has increased to include:

    * Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server Plug-in: Provides "hot" backups and granular document-level recovery for Microsoft SharePoint servers.
    * Support for VMware Infrastructures: Enables comprehensive real-time disaster recovery protection of VMware virtual machine environments, including all major operating systems, applications and files.

"Limited resources, complex IT environments and hyper data growth are constants no matter what size the business. EVault offers unparalleled data protection as SaaS, software or managed service, giving companies a choice in how they manage the hyper growth without the hassle or drain on resources," said Richard Heitmann, vice president, product management at EVault. "The EVault Unified Recovery platform enables fully-integrated, easy-to-use solutions with the widest support for applications and operating systems, allowing companies to focus on their core business, while not having to worry if their data is protected."
