COMPAQ TO INCLUDE CA BACKUP WITH SANWORKS DATA PROTECTION.

Computer Associates International, Inc. (NYSE:CA), Islandia, N.Y., provider of eBusiness management solutions, has signed an agreement with Compaq Computer Corp. (NYSE:CPQ) to include CA's popular BrightStor ARCserve Backup software with Compaq's SANworks Data Protection Suites for Backup and Restore. The agreement enables customers to make Compaq their single source for procurement and service of end-to-end data protection solutions that utilize CA's uniquely secure and resource-efficient software.

"Customers need backup solutions that are reliable, fast, and secure and that enable them to get maximum value from their existing storage infrastructure," said Rusty Smith, director of Enterprise Nearline Storage Division, Compaq Computer Corporation. "The inclusion of CA's BrightStor ARCserve Backup product in SANworks Data Protection Suites for Backup and Restore gives our customers easy-to-implement backup solutions that meet these essential criteria."

CA and Compaq have a long history of partnership and collaboration in storage and eBusiness infrastructure management. As part of the SANworks Data Protection Suites, BrightStor ARCserve Backup provides comprehensive support for Windows environments. In addition to outstanding performance, robust automation facilities and ease of administration, BrightStor ARCserve Backup provides integrated in-line virus protection for all files during the backup and recovery process -- eliminating the separate, inefficient virus scans run in non-integrated solutions. Additionally, this solution includes industry-leading eTrust virus protection for the backup server.

The BrightStor ARCserve Backup Tape Library Option, found in the multi-server suites, also features CA's Virtual Library technology allowing one physical library to appear as several logical libraries. This enables customers to gain the cost reductions of a single centralized library while retaining the administrative benefits of providing departments, teams and/or servers with their own libraries.

The SANworks Data Protection Suites for Backup and Restore with BrightStor ARCserve Backup are being made available through the following Compaq sales channels: direct sales force, distributors, value added resellers and online store. In addition to providing customers with the convenience of a single point-of-purchase, Compaq's channel partners who are CA certified will provide customers with consulting, implementation and support services to ensure the effectiveness and efficiency of their data protection strategies.

"As vital as effective data protection is to today's information-intensive enterprise, IT departments only have a limited amount of financial, human and infrastructure resources to devote to backup and restoration tasks," said George Janetakis, senior vice president, CA strategic partner sales. "By leveraging the combined technology and services of CA, Compaq, and our joint channel partners, customers can optimize the effectiveness of their data protection solutions while placing minimal strain on those finite internal resources."

BrightStor ARCserve Backup is an integral component of CA's BrightStor Brand, which delivers a family of integrated, high-performance, mobile-to-mainframe storage solutions for data availability and enterprise storage resource management. The BrightStor portfolio offers unparalleled capabilities across every major operating environment from LAN to SAN network topologies, network protocol, and storage technology.
