BANGALORE: Mimosa Systems- the Silicon Valley based innovator of data management solutions, today announced the launch of its Development Center in Pune, India. The Development Center was established in collaboration with In-Reality Software (recently acquired by Symphony Services Corp), their Pune-based operations partner. To strengthen the team in India, Mimosa Systems has also appointed Makarand Vaidya as Director, Pune Development Center. Vaidya will be instrumental in charting the course of Mimosa's engineering presence, growth and leadership in India.

Mimosa Systems provides immediacy, discovery & continuity for the new generation of critical enterprise information. Today, e-mail and similar messaging data assists decision-making and creative output, and the growth of these new types of data is driving intensifying demands for storage,
recovery capabilities, and regulatory compliance. Mimosa's flagship product, Mimosa NearPoint? for Microsoft Exchange Server leverages new cost-effective disk technologies to unify data protection,
mailbox extension and archiving in a single solution. This assures immediate fine-grain recovery, storage optimization, fingertip user access, and regulatory compliance for the world's most popular e-mail environment.

"Mimosa's Pune Development Center is a center of excellence for E-Mail and Microsoft server technologies. Pune is the perfect location for us, thanks to the people, their fierce dedication and work ethic ? we would not be able to achieve this level of excellence and accomplishment anywhere else.
One of our unique strengths has been that unlike most other companies, we designed our company from the ground up to have a fully peer-to-peer engineering collaboration model between the Pune and Santa Clara, California offices," said Dr. T.M. Ravi, President and CEO, Mimosa Systems.

"E-mail archiving and recovery are some of the biggest issues that IT organizations are going to have to deal with especially as new rules and regulations evolve that require companies to treat email data as business records," added Sumant Mandal, Managing Director, Clearstone Venture
Partners. "Mimosa has built a dream team of storage and email veterans from the industry that knows exactly how to deliver the next generation solution to address this hot market. I would bet on them becoming the next VERITAS

Said Shirish Deodhar, Vice President, Symphony Services/In-Reality Software: "We are excited about this partnership with Mimosa that highlights the success of our Build - Operate - Transfer (BOT) model. In-Reality has built the Mimosa Development Center and recruited world class talent that is working on challenging problems and technologies.In-Reality is providing its operational excellence to manage this center on a day-to-day basis until it is transferred and becomes a subsidiary of Mimosa."

To lead this effort, Mimosa brought on board Makarand Vaidya as Director, Pune Development Center. Vaidya has over fifteen years of software development and leadership experience in areas such as storage and network management. He comes to Mimosa from the Data Protection group of VERITAS
Software in India, where he was the senior manager and led a team that worked on the core data protection products including Backup Exec and NetBackup.

"We are delighted that Vaidya is joining the Mimosa team here. He brings a wealth of experience and a successful track record that will help take our Pune operations to the next level," said Dr. Ravi. "He joins our executive team as another storage veteran; with significant experience in
backup, which will be critical to our success in delivering leading-edge solutions for the data and storage management market."
