    VERITAS Storage Virtualization Platform Helps Linux Servers

    VERITAS Storage Virtualization Platform Helps Linux Servers Address Demanding Enterprise Requirements

    VERITAS Foundation Suite, the industry's leading storage virtualization platform, is now available for Red Hat Linux

    MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.- January 30, 2002 - VERITAS Software Corporation (Nasdaq: VRTS) today announced that VERITAS Foundation Suite™, the industry's leading storage virtualization platform, now supports Red Hat Linux. The VERITAS Software storage virtualization platform uses online storage management and file system technology to optimize storage hardware usage and to simplify administration of multi-platform environments. This enables companies to manage more storage with fewer resources, and to improve return on investment through increased application availability and productivity With this release, VERITAS Software brings the leading storage management solution for UNIX environments to the Linux platform, enabling Linux servers to better handle the most demanding, data-intensive applications.

    "Linux was the fastest growing server operating environment in 1999, 2000 and is very likely to be in a similar position in 2001," said Dan Kusnetzky, IDC's vice president of system software research. "As Linux moves into the mainstream in more markets, storage virtualization technology, such as VERITAS Foundation Suite, becomes increasingly important. Organizations planning to use Linux as a platform for more demanding IT infrastructure roles would be well advised to evaluate this type of software."

    VERITAS Foundation Suite combines file system and volume management technologies to create a powerful management platform for enterprise storage and storage area network environments. Well-established in UNIX environments, this hardware-independent solution offers performance-tuning capabilities and sophisticated management tools that are now available to ensure the continuous availability of databases, applications and other resources running on Linux servers. The VERITAS FlashSnap™ option, also available with this release, offers efficient, point-in-time copies of data that can support data analysis, reporting, backup and testing, without impacting production applications.

    "Our customers are looking for ways to leverage the cost/performance benefits of Linux in more of their IT infrastructure, and VERITAS Foundation Suite will help them do that," said Matthew Szulik, president and CEO, Red Hat, Inc. "Companies already using the VERITAS Foundation Suite can now manage storage across all of their Unix servers, including Red Hat Linux. And VERITAS Software's hardware-independent storage software gives our customers the freedom to choose and change storage hardware, especially as VERITAS Software makes future releases available on Red Hat Linux Advanced Server, a version of Red Hat Linux optimized to host enterprise application on 4 to 8 SMP Intel systems."

    VERITAS Foundation Suite joins VERITAS Software's industry leading data protection solution, VERITAS NetBackup™, in support of the Linux operating system. The company plans to bring its high availability clustering solutions to the Linux enterprise market later this year.

    Pricing and Availability

    VERITAS Foundation Suite 1.1 for Linux is available immediately, with pricing starting at $1,500 per single-CPU server. VERITAS FlashSnap, a separately licensed option, is also available immediately, with pricing starting at $750. VERITAS Foundation Suite supports Red Hat Linux 7.2 Standard Edition, and selected prior versions of Red Hat Linux 7.1Errata.
