Open-E Partners With Lifeboat

BOSTON -- Open-E, Inc., a leading developer of
innovative storage management software, announced today that its premiere
Data Storage Server (DSS(TM)) IP-Storage operating system will expand its
increasing presence in the North American market through a partnership with
Lifeboat Distribution, a leading specialty software distributor for
virtualization, security, application and network infrastructure.

Open-E's high-in-demand, enterprise class storage software solution
will boost Lifeboat's solution set by enabling critical capabilities for
data protection, SAN/NAS migration and disaster recovery.

A wide base of North American users may now cost-effectively and
quickly add storage to an existing network, consolidate storage and backups
for multiple servers, as well as centralize storage management through the
DSS solution. With enterprise level innovations at competitive prices,
Open-E's DSS will also allow Lifeboat's customer base to provide snapshot
capabilities, backup and recovery, virtualization and volume replication --
all with virtually any connectivity.

DSS is an all-in-one, fourth generation OS software for centralized IP-
storage management, combining full NAS and iSCSI SAN functionality. The
solution offers outstanding price-performance, massive data throughput
rates, enhanced manageability, superior reliability and increased
productivity for a variety of applications.

In addition, DSS supports a wide variety of hardware RAID platforms
from the industry's leading names. The solution's versatility also allows
the user to combine NAS systems with iSCSI SAN systems, and allows for the
teaming of multiple Network Interface Controllers, including Gigabit
Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel and Infiniband. Furthermore, a
built-in virus protection system protects the system and its rich feature
set without recurring subscription costs.
