SAN FRANCISCO -- December 17, 2012

EVault, Inc., a Seagate Company (NASDAQ: STX), today announced a partnership
with Fujitsu. The strategic partnership enables Fujitsu to expand and enhance
its backup and recovery portfolio by bringing to market a series of
comprehensive hybrid cloud services that allow customers to leverage cloud
backup effectively.

Organizations today have to navigate changing and complicated data backup and
recovery requirements and increasingly they are looking for solutions that
provide flexibility on data location and storage. Fujitsu’s hybrid cloud
backup solutions, combining Fujitsu technology with EVault software, will
offer new levels of choice for companies seeking a reliable, agile backup
method that allows for changing business and regulatory requirements and
multiple traditional and cloud platforms.

“Our clients recognize that cloud-based services can offer significant
improvements in agility and cost-savings but they also require flexibility in
adopting cloud services so they can meet their individual needs. A
one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work, which is why a hybrid approach to
backup services is so important,” said Cameron McNaught, senior vice president
cloud and strategic solutions, Fujitsu. “The decision to partner with EVault
was an easy one. Not only do we have a long-standing strategic relationship
with Seagate, but the qualities of EVault’s solutions make it the perfect
partner for delivering the hybrid cloud service for backup and so sustain our
commitment to our customers – whatever their location and size – to provide
choice and agility through the Fujitsu Cloud service offerings.”

Over the coming months, Fujitsu will launch a series of services based on the
EVault technology that enable organizations to adopt a hybrid cloud backup
strategy, with the ability to manage cloud-based and traditional on-premise
data and meet the specific data residency, compliance or protection
requirements they face. Customers will be able to store and retrieve their
data from both client devices as well as servers, databases and whole systems,
and have the flexibility to define where and how they store their data.

To aid in the backup and restoration of large volumes of data quickly, Fujitsu
will offer services that enable data to be stored on an on-premise device to
capture initial full backup before transport to a Fujitsu data center – with
following backups taking place over the network. Finally the breadth of
Fujitsu Cloud will enable the company to deliver an optional disaster recovery
service to its customers.

“Fujitsu is a world-class IT services provider with an impressive heritage.
Strategic partnerships are fundamental to EVault’s success and we are
delighted to be working so closely with Fujitsu,” said Terry Cunningham,
president and general manager of EVault. “By leveraging EVault’s solid backup
offerings on Fujitsu Cloud, the partnership brings easy-to-implement,
efficient and secure cloud-connected backup to organizations which are
navigating the complexities of online business continuity.”
