Yosemite Technologies Expands Its Reach Into Europe With Three New Major Partnerships

Agreements With Adagio Technologies, Northamber and Virtual Subsidiary Significantly Enhance Yosemite's Distribution of Its Best-of-Breed Backup for SMBs Into the European Market

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - May 20, 2008) - Yosemite Technologies, Inc., a global provider of total data protection solutions, today announced it has expanded its reach in the European market via new partnerships with Adagio Technologies, Northamber and Virtual Subsidiary. These distribution agreements will not affect Yosemite's existing relationships in Europe; only increase its presence in the region.

For storage, software and hardware solutions, Yosemite has partnered with value added distributor Adagio Technologies, which focuses on continuous data management, backup and high availability solutions in all environments in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy. Founded by former Symantec, CommVault and EMC Legato employees, Adagio Technologies has an experienced pedigree in the storage market.

"It is important for us to expand our product offering to include only best-of-breed solutions specifically addressing the SMB market," said Hans Braun, Adagio sales manager. "With customer demand for innovative solutions on the rise, Yosemite Technologies and their Yosemite Backup solution will play a key part in serving our clients through award-winning products."

Yosemite's new agreement with Northamber makes the leading United Kingdom (UK) IT distributor Yosemite's largest distribution partner in that country. Under the terms of the deal, Northamber will distribute all of Yosemite's products from its traditional Yosemite Backup™ solutions for servers to its new market leading FileKeeper Professional suite for continuous laptop and PC data protection. Yosemite is providing full product and sales training to Northamber's sales team in order to roll out the solutions to its network of resellers.

"Yosemite's strong backup solutions will enable us to drive new revenues and deliver greater choice to our business customers with storage needs," stated Jared Cary, product channels director at Northamber. "Yosemite's products allow us to offer a complete solution from the core to the edge of a company's network using Yosemite FileKeeper laptop and desktop continuous data protection software and the server based Yosemite Backup™ suite of products."

Yosemite has also partnered with Virtual Subsidiary, a company in the UK that incorporates a very pro-active, value-add distribution business. Virtual Subsidiary prides itself in being a company that can move with the market, sighting flexibility as one of its key attributes along with its expertise in the products that it distributes. This new partnership is very strategic for both companies. Virtual Subsidiary's expertise offers Yosemite the opportunity to expand into new markets and, by offering Yosemite FileKeeper, Virtual Subsidiary has the opportunity to distribute a new product that has the potential to be the next big thing.

"Yosemite FileKeeper has sparked a high level of interest from our traditional customer base and with some new partners we are working with," said Rob Oliphant, president and CEO, Virtual Subsidiary. "We are very excited about the opportunities that we see opening up."

"The excellent teams in place at our new partners make them the right match as Yosemite Technologies' expands its presence in EMEA," said George Symons, CEO of Yosemite. "These partnerships will build on our base in these national markets and provide significant value in the SMB and enterprise markets. Yosemite Backup, with is new Unlimited Server product, will be very appealing to our new distributors' SMB partners. Additionally, the distributors will provide a great launch pad for Yosemite's new award winning FileKeeper product line, which provides continuous data protection for laptops and desktops."

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.
