PAC Software announces management software for NetApp® storage

AUSTRALIA, Sydney - 10 April 2007 - PAC Software, Inc., a developer of software tools for system management, today announced the release of Folderscape, a management tool for NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) storage systems that was developed through PAC Software's membership in the NetApp Partner Program. Folderscape helps customers manage NetApp storage systems with features such as creating, configuring, and re-sizing aggregates, volumes, and LUNs. It also allows routine maintenance of Snapshot™ copies, quotas, users, groups, qtrees, folders and files.

One of the innovative features of Folderscape is that it displays files in different colours when they are also in Snapshot copies, allowing users to quickly understand what has changed. A simple right-click of the mouse can be used to restore files.

"The NetApp Partner Program is designed to enable NetApp Advantage Partners like PAC Software to provide additional management functionality on NetApp storage," said Patrick Rogers, vice president of Solutions Marketing at Network Appliance.

"This is a terrific program," said Harry McIntosh, President of PAC Software. "It allows PAC and NetApp to work together to create highly effective products for customers."

The functions in Folderscape are provided through a friendly, Windows-oriented graphical user interface. This interface makes the software immediately familiar and easy to use. It also shows the storage structure in a graphical way, which helps reduce the learning curve for new users.

PAC Software is offering free 60-day evaluation copies of Folderscape. Customers can request an evaluation copy, or view the multimedia Guided Tour of Folderscape, by visiting the product website at
