Yosemite Technologies Joins VMware Technology Alliance Partner Program

Yosemite Working With VMware on Providing Small-to-Medium Businesses (SMBs) Efficient Ways to Back Up and Restore Data

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - September 17, 2007) - Yosemite Technologies, Inc., a global provider of data protection software solutions, today announced that it has joined the VMware Technology Alliance Partner Program. As a VMware Technology Alliance Partner, Yosemite is able to work more closely with VMware to provide their mutual customers with high value solutions that directly address the challenges of business continuity and data availability, ensuring recovery of business critical data at all times.

"SMB data protection solutions need to be simpler to deploy and use than their enterprise counterparts," said Arun Taneja, founder, president and consulting analyst of the Taneja Group. "Yosemite's offerings already achieve that, but in conjunction with VMware, they will become even easier to deploy and manage."

Yosemite's solutions provide SMBs with higher data security, faster backups, reduced cost per backup hour and relief from constrained IT resources. The company's flagship Yosemite Backup™ software offers affordable and manageable data protection with features such as backup to disk, support for multi-platforms including Linux and Windows, and hardware encryption support for the next-generation Linear Tape-Open (LTO) drive and media format, LTO-4.

In addition, Yosemite offers FileKeeper™ Corporate, a simple yet powerful file backup and version rollback software solution designed for IT departments with the need to centrally manage laptops and desktops and ensure that data is safe and always available.

"Yosemite and VMware have a common objective of providing SMBs with technology that allows them to cost effectively optimize the use of their existing IT assets and resources as well as protect the systems, data, and applications that run the business," said George Symons, CEO of Yosemite Technologies. "By working closely with VMware to develop virtualization optimized solutions, our mutual customers will benefit from increasingly efficient data protection that spans from the desktop to the data center."
