Compellent Releases Statement

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Compellent Technologies, Inc. (NYSE Arca: CML)
released the following statements today regarding Microsoft's announcement of its
release candidate of Hyper-V, the hypervisor-based virtualization software available
with Windows Server 2008.

Bruce Kornfeld, vice president of marketing for Compellent, said:

"Microsoft is taking an important step in delivering on its virtualization vision
and strategy. Through the virtualization of both servers and storage, organizations
of any size can radically lower infrastructure costs while reducing their carbon and
energy footprint. Microsoft's release candidate of Hyper-V will make it easier for
many companies to plan and achieve a virtualized data center.

As an enterprise storage vendor, Compellent is excited to have taken part in the
real-world testing of Windows Server 2008 and Hyper-V in partnership with Microsoft,
our channel partners and our end users. What we found during testing is that by
using Compellent's virtualized storage as the foundation for a Microsoft server
virtualization solution, organizations can speed deployment, ease operational
management and enable rapid recovery from data disasters--benefits that our
customers believe are critical as they map their data centers for the future."
