Nexsan Technologies Names Storage and Technology Industry Veteran Bob Woolery to New Marketing Post

Leader in Energy Saving Storage Systems Continues Growth, Momentum

THOUSAND OAKS, CA--(Marketwire - September 13, 2007) - Nexsan Technologies, the leader in energy saving storage systems, announced today that storage and technology industry veteran Bob Woolery has joined the company in the newly created position of Senior Vice President of Marketing, effective immediately.

Mr. Woolery brings to Nexsan more than two decades of experience as a senior executive in marketing, product management and business development working with a range of storage and software companies.

In his new position, Mr. Woolery is responsible for the overall marketing strategy and direction of Nexsan as the company enters a new phase of growth. The company to date has built a strong reputation for a complete line of long-term storage solutions that offer exceptional price/performance and superior energy efficiency. With 50 petabytes of field-proven storage, Nexsan has spent four years developing and pioneering industry-leading, energy efficient true 'green storage.' Nexsan is moving aggressively into fast-access, active archiving solutions where breakthrough energy efficiency is becoming a critical deciding factor for customers.

"Adding top industry talent like Bob continues the build-up of our already strong executive team as we move into a new growth phase for Nexsan," said Philip Black, CEO of Nexsan Technologies. "His decades of senior marketing experience and track record of success in the storage industry will be instrumental in helping us achieve our aggressive goals."

Nexsan's storage solutions are green-enabled in order to deliver dramatic power savings. For example, where conventional fiber channel storage consumes 187KW of energy per petabyte, the Nexsan Assureon™ system in Level 3 AutoMAID™ idle mode consumes just 6KW. Nexsan products are currently in use across a wide range of Fortune 500 companies and vertical markets, including major governmental agencies and healthcare facilities.

"Nexsan has identified a significant opportunity to broaden its market with new energy efficient, active archiving solutions and I am excited to be joining this team as customers' appetite for this type of sophisticated storage solution is moving to center stage," said Woolery. "We intend to significantly reinforce Nexsan's leadership position this year and establish the company as one of the aggressive new leaders in the storage market around the world."

Mr. Woolery most recently served as Executive Vice President of Market Development at Valumation Software, a subsidiary of Imperial Technology. He previously served as Vice President of Product Marketing at DataDirect Networks and Vice President of Product Marketing at Xiotech Corporation. In those positions, he gained deep domain expertise in storage and related technologies and associated customer needs. He has devoted particular attention to addressing the unique challenges managing the rising tide of unstructured data within regulated environments where companies must meet ever changing compliance rules.
