<p>Plasmon Introduces Archive Appliance Express to Address Archiving Needs of Medical</p>
<p>Delivers Enterprise-Level Compliant Archival Storage and Unmatched Data Longevity of the Plasmon UDO Technology to the SMB Market</p>
<p>SYDNEY. NSW., June 22, 2007 – AustSTOR Plasmon’s Value Added Australian Distributor partner, announces – Plasmon, the trusted source in archiving systems, today launched the Archive Appliance Express developed specifically to address the needs of small-to–medium-sized medical businesses (SMBs). Plasmon is collaborating with value-added integrators in the medical field to bring the Archive Appliance Express to Picture Archiving Communication System (PACS) offerings.</p>
<p>SMBs in the medical market have greater vulnerabilities because they can’t afford to invest heavily in IT resources. However, these businesses have the same data compliance and storage needs as larger organizations. The introduction of the Archive Appliance Express is a direct response to the need for an archiving solution that easily manages the growing archive demands, requirements and constraints of a business without the complexity and cost of an enterprise level product.</p>
<p>“SMBs want products that require very little manipulation. However, these organizations collect and store critical data and they must deal with the same compliance requirements as their counterparts in larger medical businesses,” said Mike Koclanes, Chief Strategy Officer and Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Plasmon. “By reducing complexity while maintaining the system reliability and data permanence for which Plasmon is known, the Archive Appliance Express will help medical customers address IT challenges while improving their operating performance.”</p>
<p>The Archive Appliance Express is shipped pre-configured for the PACS software so it is simple to install and maintain and is an excellent fit for medical SMBs with little or no IT resources. Similar to the Plasmon UDO Archive Appliance, the Archive Appliance Express is a tiered storage solution that allows data to be cached on RAID for quick access while being immediately committed to UDO for long-term retention. As a non-volatile, secure technology with an extremely long life, UDO requires no proactive media maintenance and the true hardware Write Once Read Many (WORM) format ensures record authenticity that is far superior to magnetic disk and tape technology.</p>
<p>The integrated Archive Appliance Express ships with new 60GB UDO2 technology, and SATA RAID protection providing 170 GB of usable cache. Software for storage and media management is also included at no additional charge. To provide investment protection for growing businesses, there is a transparent migration process to larger Plasmon Archive Appliances.

<p>“The introduction of the Archive Appliance Express is timely, considering the growing concerns around compliance in the Healthcare market such as HIPPA” (Health Insurance Portability &amp; Accountability Act). said Bruce Macdonald, BDM at ADS (AustSTOR Data Storage). “The SMB Medical market has been crying out for a solution such as Archive Appliance Express. The simple Appliance based Archive solution represented value to a very time conscious market.” For more information locally in Australia contact AustSTOR Data Storage (www.auststor.com.au) or call 1300 134 795.</p>
