NORTHERN JOINS EMC SELECT; NORTHERN STORAGE SUITE FOR EMC
PROVIDES CUSTOMERS WITH ADVANCED NEW CONTENT QUOTA MANAGEMENT TECHNOLOGY

Tampa, FL – April 3, 2008: NORTHERN, global providers of flexible, easy to administer storage resource management software solutions, today makes two important announcements. First, the release of a new version of Northern Storage Suite that is tailored to the needs of EMC® Celerra® IP storage system customers and second, the availability of this new version through EMC Select. This will enable customers to purchase state-of-the-art content quota management software from Northern directly from EMC and its partners. EMC Select helps customers easily acquire all the required components that comprise an information infrastructure.

EMC will offer ‘Northern Storage Suite for EMC’, a new version of Northern’s best-in-class content quota management and storage resource management solution that leverages EMC storage technology.

“With EMC Select, our overarching goal is to make it easier for our customers to deploy high-performance storage solutions to meet their business objectives,” said Justin Bartinoski, Manager of the EMC Select program. “By combining Northern’s technology with EMC’s leading systems, software and services, we will be able to provide our customers with additional advanced IP storage capabilities.”

Northern Storage Suite for EMC gives companies the opportunity to extend their information lifecycle management (ILM) strategy; integrating scalable and high-performance content quota management. Major changes such as the ability to lock quotas without the need to manipulate security metadata serve to deliver enterprise-class content quota management functionality.

Inclusion in EMC Select validates the market success of Northern’s software solution and reinforces Northern’s commitment to continue to enhance  the product to meet changing customer needs. It also marks a significant milestone in the company history.

“Northern has never been in a better position to deliver the benefits of active content management to a global audience,” said Thomas Vernersson, Northern’s CEO. “Our membership in EMC Select and the strength of our new technology will combine to resolve a long standing challenge for a great number of companies – realizing efficient storage management at the user level”.
