Vicom Systems Teams With Load System AB to Deliver High-Availability SAN Solutions in Nordic Region

SAN Appliance Offerings Backed by Enterprise Integration Expertise

REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 22, 2006 -- Vicom Systems, provider of transparent wire-speed data services for systems and storage, announced today that it has signed a sales and integration services agreement with Load System AB, an enterprise integrator and IBM Business Partner that specializes in large-scale storage systems and solutions. Under the agreement, Load System will distribute, integrate, and provide services for Vicom's SAN Mirroring, SAN Connect, and data migration appliances throughout the Nordic countries.

Enterprise customers as well as major computer system manufacturers, such as IBM, Sun Microsystems and HP have used Vicom's SAN Mirroring and data migration solutions in large-scale SAN deployments worldwide. Using an appliance that installs and operates transparently within a storage area network, Vicom products deliver high availability, data protection, routing, and data migration services that simplify the management and reduce capital costs of SAN operation.

"Vicom's appliance-based solutions dramatically reduce the cost and complexity of protecting, migrating, and managing data on a SAN," said Samuel Tam, CEO of Vicom Systems. "While our products are very easy to install and manage, today's businesses depend on data to ship products and run their operations. Having a partner like Load System with deep expertise in large-scale systems as well as service and support capability is a tremendous asset both to our customers and to Vicom," said Tam.

"Load System is extremely pleased to represent Vicom Systems in the Nordic countries," said Tore Natanaelsson, CEO of Load System AB. "Managing and protecting data that is doubling every two years is a huge challenge for everyone, and Vicom Systems has some very important answers for our customers," he said.
