Mountains West to Buy SDS

CHICAGO -- Mountains West Exploration, Inc. (OTCBB:MWXI), today announced that it has signed a letter of intent to acquire Secured Digital Storage LLC (SDS) in a stock transaction. SDS will deliver remote, high density online backup data storage for mission critical data to enterprise businesses that include Fortune 500 companies, health care service providers, and government agencies. SDS will deliver its remote managed data-storage services integrated with a uniquely designed, cost efficient, smaller footprint, highly secure and survivable data center. These services employ data-storage life-cycle management process methods to optimize data utilization, resulting in a lower cost of ownership per Terabyte stored than any other data-storage service in the market today. SDS offers the most robust service level agreement dedicated to data storage, where the storage volume and high bandwidth connectivity is matched to each customers specific requirements. The SDS business model further differentiates its data-storage services by incorporating its patented Bunker PowerTM configuration, which is ideally suited for use in decommissioned military ammunition bunkers.

SDS (www.secureddigitalstorage.com) is focused on assisting its customers to run their businesses on an automated, 24x7, “lights-out” IT infrastructure. SDS incorporates Best of Breed technologies with leading-edge design concepts to combine a modular and rapidly scalable fault tolerant architecture. The results are state-of-the-art digital data- storage hardware, storage management tools and IT services; high speed connectivity, highly reliable and redundant combination of power and cooling infrastructure; and the most secure and survivable real estate available today. The service options are customizable to enterprise needs at all levels of data accessibility, security, data-storage usability, and compliance – the SDS platform provides a true virtualized extension of its customer’s data-storage operations. The business model was designed in joint collaboration with people from Hewlett Packard, AT&T, EYP Mission Critical Facilities, GE and Preon.

Lee Wiskowski, president and chief executive officer of Mountains West Exploration, said, “We are extremely excited to have a company with the caliber of people that SDS employs partnering with Mountains West. Bill Lynes, existing chairman and chief executive officer of SDS, has assembled a world class team that we believe will be able to execute this exciting business model.”
