MedAire Implements Acronis Disaster Recovery Solution for Its Mission-Critical Servers

February 21, 2006, Burlington, MA - Acronis, Inc. (www.acronis.com), the technological leader in storage management software, announced that MedAire, Inc. (ASX Code: MDE) has successfully implemented Acronis True Image Server as its corporate server disaster recovery solution.

"Redundancy was a big issue for us and we needed a solution that enabled the company to quickly recovery from any outage," said Magdi Hanna, network administrator at MedAire. "We reviewed a number of other products, but selected Acronis because of its ease-of-use, compatibility with USB devices, and lights-out image creation capabilities. MedAire is now using the Acronis solution on 10 servers running various mission-critical applications, including customer resource management (CRM), RAS Database, Microsoft Exchange, backup and telephony."

"The product was implemented quickly and easily, with no user training," he added. "While MedAire has not had a server go down since implementing the solution, we have peace of mind knowing that we can quickly recover an entire server in minutes. We consider Acronis True Image Server for Windows an integral part of our recovery plan, as it allows us to recover from server outages in minutes. We are completely satisfied with the solution."

"Health centers, doctors and medical services organizations, like all of our country's first-responders, are placing the greatest possible demands on the products and services they use because, quite simply, lives depend on them," said Acronis CEO Walter Scott. "There is no margin for error; if a product doesn't work, it simply will not be used to protect life and limb."

"Acronis is especially pleased to be working with MedAire, as well as our many other first-responders, to ensure that medical services are delivered in time of need," Scott continued.

"When a natural or not-so-natural disaster strikes, companies are not the only organizations who have servers at risk," said Stephen Lawton, Acronis director of marketing. "Our products ensure that public safety, medical, military and other government organizations have immediate access to their computer systems as well. Disasters come in all degrees - as a country we've experienced some of the very worst man and nature can throw at us. For our part, Acronis is pleased to be able to help ensure that the various first responders know that their computer systems are up and running."

Terms of the agreement between Acronis and MedAire were not released.
