Ciprico Names Marmen to Board

MINNEAPOLIS -- Ciprico Inc. (NASDAQ:CPCI), a leading provider of intelligent storage software, solutions and appliances, announced that it has appointed Thomas H. Marmen to its Board of Directors.

Mr. Marmen brings more than 30 years of senior executive experience to Cipricos board, including more than 10 years in leadership roles of companies or divisions focused in the data storage and management industry; with particular focus on mass storage and virtualization software. Most recently, Marmen was president and CEO of TimeLab Corp., an Andover, Mass., maker of a performance-enhancing technology for PC chips.

From November, 2001 until January of 2004, Marmen was chief executive of RAIDCore Corp., a Nashua, N.H.-based company focused on the development of data protection and virtualization software. RAIDCore Corp. was sold to Broadcom in January, 2004 and Marmen served as vice president and general manager of Broadcom’s Storage Line of business through April of 2006. Ciprico purchased the RAIDCore line of business form Broadcom in June of 2006. RAIDCore Corp.’s unique approach to RAID technology is what is allowing Ciprico to offer an industry disruptive way to offer data protection without hardware and agnostic in terms of which silicon is used.

Prior to joining RAIDCore, Marmen was a senior vice president and general manager of the high-end storage division of Quantum Corp., and vice president of the Enterprise Solutions Group at Adaptec, Inc., where he was responsible for that company’s RAID business.

“Tom Marmen brings an immense amount of industry experience and wisdom to our board of directors at an inflection point as our technology is earning its first design wins,” said Jim Hansen, chairman of the Ciprico board. “We are delighted to have attracted an executive of Tom’s caliber.”
