"Data center managers are feeling the pain of rapid storage growth. RELDATA has a real all-in-one solution that solves that problem," said Helthall. "I'm very impressed with RELDATA's product offering and thrilled to join the company."

Helthall brings an impressive track record of creating revenue growth for storage networking vendors. His twenty year career includes VP Sales & Marketing of Tacit Networks (WAN storage software) and VP Sales and Marketing of CrosStor Software (NAS and SAN software solutions).

Helthall will be responsible for worldwide sales and field marketing, including OEM and VAR channel development, and will report directly to Hubbard.

"RELDATA delivers a dramatic reduction in storage operational costs for data center managers. We are a leader in the unified storage market and I'm excited about taking the company to the next level," said Hubbard. "I'm also happy to have Jeff on the executive team. His deep understanding of the storage market, and experience in emerging storage vendors, will further help us accelerate RELDATA's growth."

Hubbard joined RELDATA as Chief Operating Officer in February 2007. His twenty five year career included senior executive roles at industry-leading storage vendors such as QLogic, Inrange/Computerm, Computer Network Technology and Digital Equipment Corporation. Hubbard assumes full executive leadership of the company, reporting directly to RELDATA's Board of Directors.

The entire Board is delighted with these appointments," commented Boris Anderer, Chairman of RELDATA's Board of Directors.
