BakBone to Present ``Ten Steps to Planning and Executing a Business Continuity Strategy'' at Storage Networking World



    SAN DIEGO, April 13 /CNW/ - BakBone Software(R) (Pink Sheets:  BKBO), the
leading provider of integrated data protection solutions for Linux, today
announced that Ken Horner, senior vice president of corporate development &
strategy at BakBone, will be presenting next week at Storage Networking World
in San Diego. Horner's presentation, "Business Continuity Defined: Ten Steps
to Planning and Executing a Business Continuity Strategy," takes place on
Wednesday, April 18th from 4:55 p.m. to 5:40 p.m. PT.

    "Business continuity planning is a critical element of every company's
business strategy, but it is not the same as disaster recovery," said Horner.
"While disaster recovery is targeted at technology infrastructure for the
recovery of devices, machines or sites, business continuity is an ongoing
process that extends beyond technology to business and personnel processes
with the ultimate goal of uninterrupted business operations."

    Horner's presentation will guide attendees through the top 10 steps
companies should consider when safeguarding critical business operations in
the event of a disaster. The checklist has been designed as a guideline for
streamlining the development of a comprehensive plan to maintain the
availability of key applications and business functions. By minimizing the
risk of data or productivity losses, companies reduce the negative impact on
financial performance due to disruptions.
