Yosemite Technologies and Enhance Technology Announce Partnership to Deliver a Total Backup Storage Solution

Yosemite's Complete Line of Data Protection Software Certified as Interoperable With Enhance Technology's Enterprise and SMB Storage Solutions

SUNNYVALE, CA and SANTA FE SPRINGS, CA--(Marketwire - April 22, 2008) - Yosemite Technologies, Inc., and Enhance Technology, Inc., today announced a partnership in which Yosemite's leading data protection software will be offered with Enhance's multi I/O storage systems & appliances. The companies' award winning technologies combine to create a total backup storage solution for channel partners, value added resellers (VARs), corporate users and small and medium sized businesses (SMB).

Integrating Enhance Technology's UltraStor RS series enterprise storage solution with Yosemite Backup™ and Yosemite FileKeeper forms the ideal backup and recovery solution for corporate and government users seeking total data protection. The Enhance/Yosemite combination also provides database backup on the server or client side across multiple OS environments.

"We rigorously tested Yosemite's products in our lab and determined that their complete line of data protection software meets all of our requirements and is compatible with our storage hardware," said Steven Huang, general manager, Enhance Technology. "The combination of Yosemite Technologies' backup solutions and a wide variety of Enhance Technology's prosumer, mid-tier, and professional enterprise storage systems, creates a perfect blend of high-performance, RAID protected, easy to use backup and recovery storage solutions."

The Enhance/Yosemite total backup storage solution will benefit customers in a variety of industries including industrial computing, security surveillance, government agencies, education & research, medical imaging, broadcasting & film, defense & military, and banking & financial institutions. Yosemite Backup and Yosemite FileKeeper integrated with Enhance Technology's UltraStor™ RS series combine easy to use data protection with a host of enterprise-class features including award winning RAID architecture that delivers up to 1.2GB/sec.

Enhance Technology certified Yosemite FileKeeper, Yosemite's secure and transparent data protection solution for laptops and desktops, on its mid-tier EnhanceRAID series rackmount RAID storage system. This powerful combination creates an ideal continuous data protection solution for medium sized businesses up to the enterprise. EnhanceRAID's hybrid storage technology offers a wide range of JBOD/RAID ready rackmount disk array systems that are designed to provide high density, high capacity, and low cost storage solutions.

"Our partnership with Enhance Technology will increase our presence in the enterprise market and introduce us to new vertical markets. In addition, our reach into the Asia/Pacific region will be extended," said Michelle Rockler, vice president of sales for the Americas, Yosemite Technologies. "Enhance Technology's storage hardware is a perfect fit to combine with our easy-to-use data protection software to provide channel partners and VARs with an affordable and robust total backup storage solution."

Yosemite Backup is the only data protection solution that runs natively on Windows, Netware or Linux, provides all options and agents from a single binary image, and enables agent and option additions through a simple license key. This eliminates the need for "rip and replace" upgrades and data protection solutions can expand quickly and easily as the environment grows.

The Yosemite FileKeeper family, FileKeeper Professional and FileKeeper Corporate, is designed to provide transparent and continuous data protection without the need to manage backup schedules, rotate media, or spend hours looking through media to recover a file. Once set, FileKeeper continuously protects documents and enables recovery easily through Windows Explorer right-click menus. File recoveries are simple and easy using FileKeeper's intuitive, context-sensitive right-click menus that virtually eliminate file recovery-based Help Desk calls.
