APTARE Launches StorageConsole Community Forum

User Community Promotes Exchange of Storage Best Practices

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwire - May 13, 2008) - APTARE, Inc. today announced the launch of its community forum, APTARE StorageConsole Newsgroup, where users can share best practices and exchange information on a variety of storage topics. Leveraging its Web 2.0 technology vision of a collaborative, open environment for the storage industry, the portal allows practitioners to share comments, tips and ideas based on APTARE's StorageConsole platform -- from backup to primary storage capacity management.

The StorageConsole Newsgroup forums are designed to be a resource for APTARE StorageConsole users, administrators and developers worldwide. The site encourages users to post questions to the community, exchange customized reports and provide recommendations on product enhancements. Users can also post screenshots of their reports along with the code used to generate the report. The community site provides an RSS feed so users can have the latest posting pushed to their desktop.

"After talking with our customers, it became clear that they would benefit from a collaborative community newsgroup," said Richard Clark, president and CEO of APTARE. "The development of this online community was a natural progression as we grew our install base to over 300 customers that span a variety of industries. The common denominator is the craving for knowledge when it comes to reporting and management from backup to primary storage. Our forum is designed to be a Web environment that facilitates communication between its highly engaged participants."
