(HP) in which HP will offer Tantia's Harbor Backup and Tantia's File Transfer software to its enterprise customers worldwide. BETA Systems enhanced its Storage Management product line through the acquisition of HARBOR Systems Management, Ltd., in December 1998 - now acting as Tantia Technologies, Inc., out of Boulder, Colorado. Tantia's Harbor Backup provides information backup and fast restore in cross-platform computing environments. Introduced in July this year, Tantia's File Transfer enables high-speed transfer of data in Storage Area Networks (SAN) connecting OS/390 and open-system servers. Both products will become an integral part of HP's enterprise Storage Area Networking offering and were chosen to be coupled with HP's XP family of disk-array subsystems, an industry-leading, high-end storage platform that provides extraordinary performance and scalability to support truly heterogeneous operating environments. This agreement is another major milestone for the company and demonstrates the consistent execution of BETA Systems' strategy to focus on the distribution of its Tantia products through established worldwide hardware vendors and application service providers. The reseller agreement follows a similar and successfully implemented agreement with Hitachi Data Systems. Commenting on the importance of this agreement, Christiane Hotz-Firlus, member of the Management Board, said: "We are very encouraged by this agreement. Our joint projections established with Hewlett-Packard look promising and we expect a positive impact on BETA Systems' future top line growth. HP's confidence and trust in BETA Systems' solutions further reinforces our position as a leader in our strategic business areas of Storage, Document and Data Center Management solutions."
