2 Agenda Introduction Archive Overview Archiving Alternatives Solutions Technology Questions

3 Archiving – A Business Imperative Support discovery requirements driven by increasing regulations Reduce IT cost and complexity Protect vital information over long time periods

4 Archiving Positioning Cost Low High Months days years Expected Data Longevity Active Data Reference Data Backup Data Disk-based Systems Non-permanent Fast data access Highest cost UDO Permanent Low cost Access at the file level Tape Non-permanent Low Cost No direct file access Transactional data Recovery Back-up is for Recovery Discovery Archive is for Discovery

5 Why Organizations Archive Today Improve compliance with regulatory record retention mandate Improve litigation support capabilities Reduce storage management complexity Database Increase speed of database backups Improve database performance Reduce primary storage capacity Unstructured (Files) Reduce time and cost associated with recovering data in event of disaster / outage Reduce time required to search and locate archived content Improve management of and access to corporate intellectual property Improve compliance with record retention mandates New and Updated Regulations (Federal Rules of Civil Procedure- FRCP) Data Privacy Regulations Spreading Source: ESG Report: Digital Archiving: End-User Survey & Market Forecast / Contoural, Inc.

6 TB 500 TB Primary data copies Data that will NEVER be accessed Data not accessed in last 90 days Data growth continues to accelerate 80% of data has not been accessed recently 60% will NEVER be accessed 78% of data is still on primary storage 78% still kept on Tier-1 storage* Over 80% of Data on Primary Storage Is Rarely Accessed

7 Data Lifecycle Management Frequency of data access High Low Today1-90 days90+ days Data age Business data Back-upArchive Cost of storage High Low

8 Retention Periods Increasing or Unknown Fast Access to Archived Files Proof document was never altered Multiple Archives with different retention periods. Disaster Recovery strategies IT Budget Shrinking Archiving Requirements Create IT Challenges Other Considerations: TCO Analysis should be 7+ years Proprietary Options

9 Best Practice Archiving Principle I recently heard a best practice for the storage of critical data from Gartner that made quite a bit of sense to me. The principle is to maintain three copies of your critical data and have it stored on at least two different types of media. Mike Frakes, FAA DiskPlasmon Disk SAN Dual Write to Both Local Storage Platforms Replicated to a Remote DR Site The applications can failover to any of the three archives for access.

10 UDO Technology Next Generation enterprise class archival storage 5.25 ISO-standard format Developed specifically for the archival market by Plasmon Multiple sources of the technology Media by Verbatim and Plasmon OEMs include IBM, GEHC and co-branding with Konica- Minolta New Blue Laser technology Provides greater aerial density UDO roadmap 30GB-60GB-120GB-240GB All backward compatible Phase Change technology The most secure archival storage recording technology Permanent: Media life > 50 years/100 Shelf Enables true Write Once, Compliant Write Once, Rewritable media CDDVD = 780 nm NA = 0.45 = 650 nm NA = 0.6 = 405 nm NA = 0.7/0.85 UDO Amorphous Phase Atoms frozen in random positions, dull appearance Crystalline Phase Atoms in ordered positions, shiny appearance

12 We were able to recover all of the patient images off of the Plasmon libraries... We are now primarily using the Plasmon UDO Archive Appliance for its long term recoverability. Kenneth Allen Health Systems Specialist South Central Health Care Southeast Louisiana Veterans Hospital 95% patient data recovery after Katrina

13 UDO Industry Acceptance Extensive Global Industry Support …. OEMs & Platform Providers Medical System Integrators Third Party Technology Providers Compliance

14 Plasmon UDO Software Partners Data life cycle management Direct access archival storage Automated data migration applications Vertical market solutions: , Banking, Document Management, Insurance, Legal, etc.

15 UDO Roadmap UDO2 Released May 1, 2007 Max data read rate increased 50% to 12MB/s Drive Key Security Will be backward read compatible with UDO1 disks Will use same software drivers as UDO1 Investment Protection…

16 Migrations are a non-Event Open standards based access to data No forklift upgrades No tight coupling of HW to SW Not subject to Intels constant churn of HW Data not resident on disks which have 3-5 year average lifespan Data remains in-place UDO media has 50+ year life Support mixing of multiple generations of UDO drive technology UDO technology provides backward media read/shred capability No issues or outside cost associated with proving chain-of- control Policy based data movement No media handling required Compact data from multiple older media on to newer higher capacity UDO media

22 Why use the Plasmon UDO Archive Appliance? Gold Standard for Data Authenticity True WORM means assured data authenticity We guarantee that nobody including Plasmon engineers can change the data on our WORM media or reset the system to undo it Best of ALL Worlds Simplicity of NAS with disk-like performance Authenticity and longevity of optical Start small and scale as your needs grow $15K entry price point Up to 38TBs of UDO1 capacity, 76TBs with UDO2 Makes migrations a non-event Green Lowest TCO

23 Customer Testimonials The UDO Archive Appliance was the only solution that met all of our requirements - HIPAA compliance, security, fast access, longevity and cost. Sanjay Shah, CIO Cabell Huntington Hospital West Virginia The UDO Archive Appliance is the perfect complement to our GE Centricity PACS. Not only does it provide a scalable, cost- effective way to archive our images, it also doubles as our disaster recovery solution. Ron Hagan Radiology Supervisor / PACS Administrator Lourdes Medical Pavilion Kentucky The customer specifically requested that we use UDO technology for their disaster recovery strategy, stating tape does not provide the media life they need and disk-based archive systems are too expensive. UDO was the obvious choice. Ulrich Uetz, GE Project Manager Medical University of Hannover Germany We looked at disk based systems, but the reliability was in question - you're not getting that copy to take off-site for DR to store in a vault at Iron Mountain ®. It's volatile, and regardless of how much redundancy or how many copies it makes, if something's corrupt then it's corrupted. Scot La Clair, Systems Administrator Newport Imaging California

24 UDO TCO Analysis As a matter of fact, our analysis indicates that 12 TB of parity protected Centera capacity is 81% more expensive than a comparably configured automated UDO appliance, and a Centera Mirrored configuration is three times more expensive. A closer look at the results reveals that the cost of a Centera solution is inflated significantly due to the price of software acquisition and maintenance. A more careful examination uncovers noticeable power consumption costs for the disk-based Centera system. Brian Garrett Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group November 2006
