--  A unified eDiscovery platform that allows Simpana software's powerful
    search and eDiscovery solution to search massive amounts of information
    that can be cost effectively stored on Permabit's enterprise value tier
    disk storage platform.

    Write Once Read Many (WORM) storage repository, built-in natively to the
    Permabit Enterprise Archive storage, and enforce retention policies defined
    within the Simpana platform.  This allows for adherence to even the most
    stringent of regulatory and corporate compliance requirements.

Permabit's certification with CommVault technology was validated by a series of test cases and test plans to demonstrate complete compatibility between Enterprise Archive and CommVault Simpana data and information management software. When used with Enterprise Archive, CommVault Simpana software automates the integration, archive and backup of data between the online environment and the archived storage data repository, speeding critical access to increase productivity and workflow across the organization.
