    Integration Between SAND/DNA Access and EMC Centera Allows Customers to
    Store More Information at Their Fingertips, Lower TCO, Improve
    Operational Efficiencies and Meet Compliance Regulations
    

    MONTREAL, Jan. 13 /CNW/ -- SAND Technology Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:  
SNDTF), an international provider of information management software and best
practices today announced it has completed integration between its SAND/DNA
Access product suite and EMC Centera CAS. EMC Centera is the world's most
simple, affordable and secure repository for information archiving. It is a
purpose-built, software-driven storage platform that provides a myriad of new
capabilities for unlocking the business value from unchanging or infrequently
changing information. SAND/DNA Access allows companies to store, access, and
analyze large amounts of information on-demand while lowering TCO, improving
operational efficiencies and quickly respond to changing business needs.
    The integration of SAND/DNA Access with EMC Centera provides joint
customers data retention repository capabilities with the storage capability
of Centera. This enables customers to have virtually limitless retention of
any structured data for analysis, correlation, and reporting. This capability
is critical for meeting regulatory compliance goals and essential for
investigating security incidents that occur over time and across multiple
systems.
    "EMC Centera CAS provides the right mix of data integrity and
availability for storing large amounts of information," said Richard Grondin,
Vice President R&D and Product Deployment, of SAND Technology. "When combined
with SAND/DNA Access, our mutual customers are better able to manage their
massive amounts of information for compliance purposes while at the same time
improving operational efficiencies and effective use of their storage
resources."
    Fred Walker, Global ISV Alliances, EMC Corporation, said, "The
integration between EMC Centera and SAND/DNA Access benefits joint customers
who are deploying and managing large amounts of information such as advanced
information grids and technical libraries by unlocking the value in digital
content, while lowering costs and making it easier to manage and share this
information."
    As information volumes grow and user demands increase customers are
facing significant information management challenges as well as heightened
costs. SAND/DNA Access is designed to help organizations of any size cope with
the challenges of the information explosion. It provides a highly compact,
searchable repository that can store terabytes, even petabytes of information
which is immediately accessible for querying and reporting, maintaining easy
information accessibility.
