<p><span class="xn-location">SAN DIEGO</span>, <span class="xn-chron">May 18</span> /CNW/ -- BakBone Software® (OTC Bulletin Board:   BKBO), a leading provider of Universal Data Management solutions, is helping DeLorme manage their growing volume of mapping and GPS data with NetVault®: SmartDisk.</p>

    News Highlights
    --  DeLorme, an innovative leader in mapping, geographic data, GIS and GPS
        technology, was spending too many hours purchasing and changing tapes
        for their growing stores of data and needed to reduce data storage
    --  They selected NetVault: SmartDisk, BakBone's disk-based data
        deduplication solution and have recouped their investment in SmartDisk
        in less than six months.
    --  NetVault: SmartDisk has helped DeLorme simplify their backup process,
        reduce the number of hours previously spent on tape management and
        provides an added layer of protection to their data protection

    The Challenge
    --  As the cost of tape libraries and the company's volume of mapping and
        GPS data continued to grow, DeLorme needed a solution that would save
        them a significant amount of time, money and space spent on their
        backup and storage drives and overall data management.
    --  DeLorme's mapping data takes up a lot of space in their database with
        its different formats and sizes; mapping data is the lifeblood of
        DeLorme's business and the company needs access to it at all times of
        the day.

    The Solution
    --  With NetVault: SmartDisk, DeLorme's IT department has simplified their
        backup process by reducing the hours spent on swapping tapes and
        managing data and the deduplication saves a significant amount of
        on their backup drives.
    --  Within minutes of installation, DeLorme was able to start
    --  In addition, NetVault: SmartDisk shortens their backup and recovery
        windows and makes it easy for one person to handle all of the
        data protection needs.

With NetVault: SmartDisk, we can rest easy knowing we have an added layer of protection and that our data is always at our fingertips."</p>
<p><span class="xn-person">Roy Hogsed</span>, senior vice president of Worldwide Sales, BakBone: "Our goal is to provide customers with an easy-to-implement and cost-effective deduplication solution that will give them the ability to share disk-based backup storage across heterogeneous platforms and ease up on administrative time with a single data protection solution.
