<p>EqualLogic PS Series SANs and DPM 2007 Deliver Comprehensive Data Protection for Microsoft Environments</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia — November 14, 2007—EqualLogic®, Inc., the leading provider of high-performance iSCSI storage area network (SAN) solutions, today announced support for Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2007. EqualLogic’s PS Series SANs and DPM 2007 combine to offer comprehensive yet simple data protection, backup and rapid recovery for Microsoft applications, such as Exchange Server, SQL Server, SharePoint Portal Server, Virtual Server and Windows file services.</p>
<p>EqualLogic iSCSI SANs and DPM 2007 complement each other. The joint solution addresses the need for short-term data retention and rapid recovery with EqualLogic’s SAN-based protection features, and DPM 2007 provides continuous data protection and long-term backup options such as disk-to-disk-to- tape. EqualLogic SANs provide high-performance storage for business-critical Microsoft applications with seamless scalability, easy set-up and rapid recovery for DPM 2007 deployments. Both products can be effectively used in branch office deployments.</p>
<p>Intelligent SANs provide unique benefits for DPM 2007 deployments, because of the product’s new capabilities. For instance, DPM 2007 servers benefit from the PS Series SAN-based snapshots to quickly backup and recover lost application data without impacting production network services.</p>
<p>Marc Kamstrup-Braad, partner program manager at Microsoft Corp., said, “Implementing comprehensive data protection across an entire business can be a challenge, and frequently such deployments are limited to large enterprises. EqualLogic and Microsoft are simplifying this process by delivering compatible data protection features to a broader market. EqualLogic’s support of the Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager 2007 will allow joint customers to execute an end-to-end data protection and backup strategy for their Microsoft environments.”</p>
<p>“At its very core, EqualLogic is committed to simplifying data storage and protection for Microsoft applications,” said Fadi Albatal, product marketing manager at EqualLogic. “Our native support for Windows and compatibility with Volume Shadow Copy Service and DPM 2007’s continuous data protection and recovery features allow IT managers to easily implement an application-aware data protection and backup strategy.”</p>

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
