ZITEL AND DATA GENERAL ANNOUNCE AGREEMENT TO MAKE CLARIION STORAGE SYSTEMS AVAILABLE TO UNISYS MARKET

 FREMONT, Calif., June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Zitel Corp. (NASDAQ-NMS: ZITL) and Data General Corp. (NYSE: DGN) announced today that they have entered an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) agreement enabling Zitel to sell Data General's CLARiiON(TM) storage products in the Unisys market. Terms of the agreement have not been disclosed.
 Zitel's focus will be on marketing the CLARiiON Series 2000 Disk Array for Unisys U6000 servers. The company expects to ship CLARiiON disk and tape arrays in the fourth calendar quarter of this year.
 Subsequent to marketing the Series 2000 Disk Array, Zitel plans to make Data General's CLARiiON Series 4000 Tape Array available in the Unisys market.
 Mike Rogers, Zitel vice president, sales and marketing, said, "The agreement will benefit both companies. CLARiiON storage systems deliver superb price/performance, and will be an important part of Zitel's commitment to provide Unisys UNIX users a full range of storage solutions that meet a wide variety of needs."
 Tom West, senior Vice President of Data General's CLARiiON Business Unit, said, "We are extremely pleased that Zitel -- the leading third-party supplier to the Unisys market -- will be marketing CLARiiON systems to Unisys users. We look forward to a productive, long-term relationship.
 The CLARiiON Business Unit is dedicated to developing inexpensive and reliable storage solutions for open systems. The CLARiiON Series 2000 disk array, for example, uses RAID technology and redundant subsystems to deliver high-capacity, high-availability storage. The CLARiiON Series 4000 tape array can back up as much as 30 gigabytes of data overnight without operator attendance. Both systems are available for a variety of UNIX platforms.
 Zitel Corp., headquartered in Fremont, specializes in the design, manufacture and marketing of high-performance storage subsystems and high-speed data communications products for varied applications across a range of UNIX file-servers, mainframes and proprietary systems. These products are offered through systems integrators, value-added resellers and distributors, OEMs and directly to Unisys mainframe end-users.
 Data General is a leading supplier of open systems platform technology to the commercial computing market. The company, based in Westboro, Mass., reported revenues of $1.1 billion in fiscal 1992.
