WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif–October 2, 2006 –CaminoSoft Corp. (OTC.BB:CMSFNews) , CaminoSoft Corp. (OTC.BB: CMSF), a leading provider of Active Archive Management solutions for Microsoft Windows 2000/2003 and Novell NetWare & GroupWise environments, today announced that its Managed Server HSM™ software has been enhanced to support file archiving from network-attached storage (NAS) products offered by Network Appliance, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTAP).

“CaminoSoft’s Managed Server HSM for Windows 2000/2003 has historically provided the ability to archive files to a NetApp NAS target when configured as the last tier in a storage hierarchy. Our enhanced software now provides the ability to archive files from a NetApp NAS source, configured as primary storage, to secondary and/or tertiary storage tiers,” said Michael Skelton, CaminoSoft’s chief executive officer.
Skelton noted that the worldwide market for external disk storage systems was projected to grow from approximately $17.4 billion in 2005 to approximately $22.7 billion in 2010, according to estimates from International Data Corporation (IDC). A substantial portion of this storage growth is attributed to the retention of unstructured data and fixed content, comprised of files such as office documents, web pages, digital images, and audio and video information. Network Appliance’s industry-leading NAS solutions address this ever-increasing demand for storage and are installed in enterprises worldwide.

“Managed Server HSM for NetApp runs on a Windows 2000/2003 server and provides true file system integration via NetApp’s FPolicy® application programming interface. This results in key advantages for customers, including: fast, efficient recall of archived files; reclamation of NetApp NAS space for active production file usage; dramatic reduction in the amount of time needed for backup (and recovery in the event of an outage); and facilitation of compliance with corporate and industry regulations governing file retention and deletion,” said Neil Murvin, CaminoSoft’s chief technology officer.

CaminoSoft’s storage management solutions enable organizations to set up policies that automate the archival, recall and retention of files, performing these functions transparently from the standpoint of system users. The software, which requires minimal IT intervention for installation and set up, supports data archiving across an unlimited number of storage tiers. This allows inactive files to be archived from a NetApp NAS to other designated NetApp storage partitions, to external ATA/RAID subsystems, and—through CaminoSoft ‘special editions’—to industry-leading fixed content archival systems. Multiple NetApp ‘Filers’ are easily administered from a central Windows console. CaminoSoft plans to further enhance and certify its software in support of NetApp’s SnapLock® compliance storage platform.

Managed Server HSM for NetApp is now available and shipping.
