EVault, Inc., a Seagate Company (NASDAQ:STX), today announced it is joining
the OpenStack community, a global community of technologists, developers,
researchers, corporations and cloud computing experts delivering a massively
scalable cloud operating system. EVault will be both contributing to ongoing
OpenStack development, and working to add OpenStack support to its cloud
storage services.

EVault provides onsite, cloud and cloud-connected data protection solutions to
help organizations protect distributed environments, supported by a secure,
reliable cloud storage infrastructure and backed by the highest quality
customer service. EVault has been a leader in the industry’s move to hybrid
storage models, with a uniquely integrated ecosystem of EVault storage
software, SaaS, managed services and appliances that help ensure customers

“EVault is proud to have been a key contributor to cloud business adoption,
having first introduced cloud backup solutions 15 years ago. EVault is joining
the OpenStack community of software developers collaborating on this scalable
open source cloud management platform,” said George Hoenig, vice president,
Open Storage, EVault. “EVault’s parent company, Seagate, announced its
