Diligent Technologies Signs Global Reseller Agreement with Sun Microsystems

    Partnership expands Diligent's channel reach and validates technological
leadership in the enterprise

    FRAMINGHAM, MASS., September 4 /CNW/ - Diligent Technologies Corporation,
a leading provider of enterprise-class de-duplication and data protection
solutions, today announced that it has entered into a global reseller
agreement with Sun Microsystems to resell the ProtecTIER(TM) suite of
solutions (enterprise and mid-range configurations) through both its direct
sales teams and the channel.

    Data de-duplication is arguably the hottest emerging storage technology
and is reshaping the nature of data protection. Diligent's ProtecTIER is the
first and only proven de-duplication solution to meet the challenging demands
of enterprise data centers. Diligent and Sun already have joint ProtecTIER
customers - some with over 1 PB of physical storage under management.

    "This is another big win for Diligent," says Heidi Biggar, analyst at the
Enterprise Strategy Group. "It is a further testament to the strength of the
ProtecTIER solution in both midsize and especially large data centers where
there have been some questions about the ability of de-duplication
technologies in general to meet the rigors (in terms of both performance and
reliability) of these types of environments."

    Diligent's ProtecTIER, offered in configurations to meet both enterprise
and mid-range enterprise needs, is a proven de-duplication solution that
offers the combination of the following per-node attributes: 400 MB/s inline
throughput; up to 1 PB of physical capacity; and fine-grain data/source
agnostic de-duplication algorithm that provides 100% data integrity.

    "Data de-duplication in enterprise data-centers is a significant
technological challenge, requiring specialized architecture, combining
scalability, flexibility and resilience. Our cumulative experience
successfully serving this market, and the references we've obtained over 18
months of production deployments continue to be determining factors in
customers' and partners' decisions to adopt ProtecTIER," said Doron Kempel,
Chairman and CEO of Diligent Technologies. "We are excited about the
partnership with Sun and the opportunity to offer ProtecTIER to their growing
customer base."
