Healthcare Focus Just What the Doctor Ordered for BridgeHead Software in 2010

Healthcare Storage Virtualization™ (HSV™) Specialist Grows 40 Per Cent

WOBURN, MASSACHUSETTS and ASHTEAD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Jan. 11, 2011) - BridgeHead Software, the Healthcare Storage Virtualization (HSV) company, announced today that its year-over-year income increased 40 per cent for fiscal year 2010. BridgeHead attributed its dynamic 2010 growth to its singular focus on developing data and storage management offerings that meet the unique needs of the healthcare market.

Just 24 months ago, as the world faced a severe financial crisis, BridgeHead Software underwent a re-organization. Both operations and products were realigned to focus specifically on the healthcare market – a natural strategic evolution given that BridgeHead already had a track record of success in this area. This new focus on healthcare has already paid off; BridgeHead has grown organically and sustained five consecutive quarters of profitability.

A full account of BridgeHead Software's 2010 achievements is available here. In short, BridgeHead Software:

• Introduced the Healthcare Storage Virtualization (HSV) concept, supported by its whitepaper – "Healthcare Storage Virtualization: A New Way of Thinking About Your Data and Storage Management Challenges";

• Leveraged the BridgeHead HSV architecture to provide hospitals with a long-term roadmap for an effective healthcare disaster recovery strategy and a blueprint for reducing data management and storage costs;
