Plasmon Teams with NetApp to Provide Customers Fully Integrated Archiving Solutions

Broomsfield, Colo. - June 24, 2008 - Plasmon PLC (LSE: PLM), the trusted source in archiving solutions, today announced a partnership with NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) to provide customers with differentiated solutions that meet their archiving needs.

As part of the agreement, Plasmon is integrating NetApp® storage systems into its Archive Appliance and data management solutions to build on its strategy to virtualize the archive layer and enable intelligence-based archive systems that work with multiple technologies as one virtualized storage pool.

"We're pleased to establish a partnership with NetApp to revolutionize our customers' approach to archiving," said Steven Murphy, CEO, Plasmon. "This partnership is another step toward delivering solutions that enable archives to seamlessly leverage appropriate storage technologies and applications. We will continue to form key partnerships with leading industry vendors such as NetApp to help drive our virtualization strategy and provide customers with archive architectures that simplify their storage environments."

"The trend toward virtualization is causing customers to rethink their backup architecture and processes," said Patrick Rogers, vice president of Solutions Marketing at NetApp. "But other demands such as archiving are driving data management issues that are larger than just backup alone and making what customers need to manage today a lot broader. Together with Plasmon, we are helping our customers to achieve new levels of operational efficiencies and to address their challenges in archiving."
