Permabit Added to TVAR Solutions' GSA Schedule

Next Generation Disk Archive Solution From Permabit Technology Now Readily Available to Federal and Commercial Organizations

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - February 25, 2009) - Permabit Technology Corporation, the industry's leading innovator of scalable, data-reduced storage for enterprise archiving, today announced its addition to TVAR Solutions' GSA Schedule. TVAR Solutions is a technical value-added reseller that delivers best of breed products which enhance and protect the infrastructures of Federal and commercial organizations.

--  The TVAR stamp of approval means that government agencies and
    contractors can purchase Permabit products directly with the knowledge that
    they have been tested and approved by the TVAR team of experts.  TVAR
    Solutions has built a strong reputation of quality amongst its customer
    base by only partnering with the top technology solutions in the industry.
    
--  At a time when IT departments are ultra cost sensitive and face
    increasing pressure to manage larger amounts of data more succinctly and
    efficiently, Permabit is able to provide organizations the solutions to
    better manage their information technology issues while returning a larger
    ROI and a decreased TCO.
    
--  In addition, with the onset of a new administration, government
    agencies specifically can expect a new series of stringent data management
    policies.  The ability for these agencies and contractors to select from an
    approved list of technology solutions that best fit their particular needs
    goes a long way in paring down costs and speeding time to implementation.
    
--  Data security and reliability continues to be the focus within
    government organizations, especially when long term data retention is
    needed.  Permabit's unique ability to combine general purpose archiving
    with WORM based compliance archiving and encryption within one storage
    system makes it easier and more cost effective to deploy disk based
    archiving solutions today.
    
--  Data longevity is another issue government agencies need to assess
    when storing data for long term archiving.  Permabit has a self-managing,
    self-healing, thin provisioned archive solution that never requires a fork-
    lift upgrade.  Its grid based architecture allows for seamless technology
    refreshes without ever having to take the system offline.
