2006 Storage Visions™ Conference Announces New Sponsors

Significant Prizes Distributed During Conference

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 11, 2005 -- The Storage Visions conference, January 6 & 7, 2006, in Las Vegas, Nevada, the only conference focusing on digital storage and the entertainment content value chain, announces several new corporate sponsors.

Four new corporate sponsors have joined the previous five. These sponsors include a disk drive company, two major flash memory manufacturers and a chip verification tool company. Maxtor Corporation is joining as a Platinum sponsor and will give the lunch keynote talk on January 7 just before the home network storage session. M-Systems Samsung, and Denali Software are joining as Gold sponsors.

"We are proud to be a Platinum sponsor of Storage Visions 2006. The Storage Visions Conference is the industry aggregation bringing users, hardware vendors, content creators, distribution partners, and others together to discuss the rapidly growing consumer electronics storage market," said Mike Williams, vice president and general manager of Maxtor's Branded Products Group. "Today, opportunities are endless from backing up data to centralizing network content to streaming rich entertainment throughout the home. As a leader in consumer storage and backup, we look forward to being a part of this conference and delivering the home networking keynote."

According to Zack Weisfeld, general manager, Americas for M-Systems, "We are sponsoring Storage Visions for the third year running -- testimony to how important we think this show is. The organizers bring together the biggest names in the data storage business, with speakers who have the knowledge and insights to make the show as informative as it is thought-provoking. Lately, Storage Visions was the first to understand the new paradigm based on the co-existence of solid-state, embedded flash drives and hard disk drives. Seeing the market through Storage Visions' specialized eyes and making contacts with the right people in the industry has enabled us to sharpen our own business strategies."

Prior 2006 Storage Visions corporate sponsors are Seagate Technology (Platinum), Agere Systems, Atmel, and Toshiba (Silver), and Silicon Image (Bronze). InfoStor has also joined as a media sponsor.
