StorFirst Altus Now Available Through EMC Select Program

StorFirst Altus Provides a Cost-Effective Copy and Restore Solution for EMC Centera Customers

LAWRENCE, MA--(Marketwire - October 13, 2009) - Seven10 Storage Software, a leader in virtualization and data protection of regulated enterprise archives, today announced its StorFirst Altus software is now available through the EMC® Select Program, a program which helps customers easily acquire components that comprise an information infrastructure. Through the EMC Select Program, customers that require a tape-based recovery solution for EMC Centera® can now purchase StorFirst Altus software directly from EMC.

Seven10's Windows-based application complements EMC Centera by copying archives in native CAS (content addressable storage) format to a VTL or tape library for restore purposes. StorFirst Altus works with single, multiple, or replicated Centera systems to offer the highest level of protection while leveraging inexpensive media pools which can be stored or vaulted off-site.

Easy to install and operate, StorFirst Altus is an all-encompassing, stand-alone product that runs independently from third-party applications and does not require any NDMP middleware. With direct and native support for a wide range of tape drives, tape libraries, shared-library protocols, and VTLs, StorFirst Altus is the most economical product for customers whose business requirements dictate that they retain a copy of Centera data on removable media.

"In today's challenging economic environment, customers require solutions that can help them reduce IT spending without sacrificing performance or security," said Matt Mainstruck, Manager of EMC Select. "Seven10's StorFirst Altus and Centera -- when sold through EMC -- provide customers an easy-to-acquire solution that meets stringent retention policies and regulatory needs."

"This is an opportunity to help by offering a cost-effective tape or VTL-based copy and restore solution for the thousands of customers using EMC Centera technology worldwide," said Bobby Moulton, Seven10's President. "We are excited to be part of the EMC Select Program, helping to ensure the highest level of protection for customers who have deployed, or are ready to install, EMC Centera."

StorFirst Altus is available immediately through EMC Select.
