--Platform, services, and targeted solutions to cost effectively address eDiscovery, knowledge reuse, strategic storage, and SharePoint management— 


BOXBOROUGH, Mass., June 16, 2009Digital Reef (www.digitalreefinc.com), developer of the first massively scalable unstructured data management platform, today announces a partnership with Aeturnum, a leading provider of software development services and solutions based in Westford, Mass.  The partnership, based on Digital Reef’s unique unstructured data management platform, enables Aeturnum to resell Digital Reef’s eDiscovery, knowledge reuse, storage reclamation, and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 management solutions, as well as create custom applications targeted to business verticals, including financial services, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, and publishing/media.

"Digital Reef’s platform stands alone in its ability to create such a rich opportunity for solutions around unstructured data," stated Rajat Bhakhri, President and CEO of Aeturnum.  "We will use our vertical market expertise to create custom solutions for our customers that address critical enterprise data management issues, like SharePoint management, tiered-storage initiatives, and data discovery for vertical markets."

As unstructured data expands unchecked, enterprises are exposed to increased risk and expense.  This is particularly true in the current economic climate, which is driving an increase in lawsuits and related electronic discovery initiatives.  Digital Reef discovers and manages unstructured data to help enterprises mitigate risk as well as save money and valuable IT resources.  The Digital Reef platform enables unstructured data management across environments, including SharePoint environments, and provides a degree of scalability and performance that is a first in the industry. 

"We are very pleased to be working with Aeturnum,” stated Steve Akers, President and CEO of Digital Reef.  “The company’s understanding of customer needs in industries like financial services, pharmaceuticals, and healthcare, combined with deep technical skills and service capabilities, make Aeturnum uniquely suited to build on Digital Reef’s platform to address specific data management needs in various vertical markets.  We look forward to a very productive partnership."

In addition to providing custom applications, Aeturnum will provide deployment and integration services for the Digital Reef platform.  Because Digital Reef is easy to deploy, requiring no taxonomies or customization to provide unstructured data management functionality, Aeturnum will focus on enabling a wider spectrum of proof-of-concept deployments and work with enterprises to integrate Digital Reef more deeply into aspects of their IT infrastructures.
