Technical Partnership Broadens Value by Combining Backup, Restore and
Virtualisation Expertise

London - October 12, 2001 - DataCore(tm) Software, the leading provider of
storage virtualisation and networking software and Atempo (formerly
Quadratec Software), the developer of Time Navigator(tm), the software
platform for high-performance backup and restore services and latest member
of DataCore's growing SANvantage(tm) Technical Partner Programme, announced
their joint efforts on developing an enhanced backup integration solution.
Joint development work has been done on integrating DataCore's
SANsymphony's(tm) Snapshot functionality with Atempo's Time Navigator for
file system level backups. In addition to the work already done, the two
companies announced their plans for further work on this project, which
includes a tighter integration at the file system level as well as at the
block level.

"Businesses are faced with an explosion of critical data and one of the
biggest challenges facing these data-intensive businesses is to easily
store, backup and restore their data at all times," said Philippe Boyon,
vice president of Marketing at Atempo. "By co-ordinating our efforts,
Atempo and DataCore can assure our joint customers a smooth storage
networking operation."

Atempo's Time Navigator is the software platform for high-performance backup
and restore services. Specifically designed for corporate data centres
(internal) and Internet data centres (outsourced), Time Navigator gives
service providers new management tools for enhancing quality of service and
delivering new value-added storage services. This solution offers a feature
based on the concept of Time Navigation that allows customers to literally
navigate through time continuously to easily access and restore any slice of
data, at any level, with pinpoint accuracy. Time Navigator is designed for
all the major network storage architectures, including network-attached
storage (NAS) or storage area networks (SAN). Time Navigator is available
on Windows NT/2000, Unix, Linux platforms, and is compatible with most
automated libraries on the data storage market.

Time Navigator provides backup and restore capabilities on libraries with
SANsymphony snapshot tools. These snapshots allow LAN free/Server Less
backup and restore, hence skipping the 'backup windows'. SANsymphony
improves overall storage utilisation and eliminates costly storage-related
disruptions, offers customers affordable remote mirroring alternatives for
disaster recovery and leverages high availability features of existing
storage assets. Through a fault-tolerant architecture, SANsymphony ensures
enterprise-level data protection that eliminates single points of failure
and offers advanced security for network-wide management and control of
storage assets, while leveraging sophisticated caching to improve throughput
and network performance. SANsymphony allows companies to distribute storage
simply and non-disruptively to Unix, Windows, Linux, Mac OS and NetWare

"DataCore and Atempo are working together to ease the problems associated
with data protection and recovery in multi-vendor storage deployments," said
Ken Horner, vice president of marketing at DataCore. "These efforts will
result in powerful, interoperable SANs, and a proven way for customers to
easily manage, back up and restore data as needed." The SANvantage Technical
Partner Program is designed to bring together industry leaders who support
delivering interoperable, open systems, SAN technology to joint customers.
