    PRESS RELEASE

    (Kraków, 05-06-2003)

    Hitachi Data Systems and SOLIDEX S.A. enter into a

    partnership agreement.

Warsaw, Poland, June 5th 2003 Hitachi Data Systems, the fastest-growing worldwide

    manufacturer of enterprise storage systems, and SOLIDEX SA based in Krakow, Poland have

    signed a partnership agreement. Under the agreement, SOLIDEX will include Hitachi disk systems

    in its offer and will use them in its projects.

According to Rupert Grafendorfer, Director Business Operations, Central and Eastern Europe,

    Hitachi Data Systems: “SOLIDEX is one of leading Polish integrators of IT systems. Its solid

    market position, as well as a significant number of projects deployed by the company, open a

    chance for HDS products to reach a very large group of customers. SOLIDEX has highly-qualified

    engineers and solid experience gathered during execution of many projects, which guarantees that

    its solutions based on HDS systems will be deployed successfully”.

By offering Hitachi storage systems, SOLIDEX will extend its portfolio of storage products and

    services designed for mission-critical applications, in particular for disaster recovery solutions

    which require continuous data replication, as well as solutions for disk resource consolidation and

    data archiving in large organizations. “When starting our talks with Hitachi, we put particular

    attention to the offered technologies for enterprise and midrange systems. The most important

    factors we took into consideration were reliability, scalability, performance, and innovativeness of

    the solutions”, said Zbigniew Skotniczny, president, SOLIDEX S.A.

Until now, SOLIDEX solutions have been successfully deployed for more than 700 customers

    representing the largest organizations in all economy sectors, including the largest banks,

    telecommunication operators, and government agencies. “SOLIDEX puts a lot of emphasis on

    developing a sales strategy for storage devices by investing in people, marketing, and technology.

    That is why this company perfectly matches our collaborative business model”, added Rupert Grafendorfer.

Hitachi Data Systems provides state-of-the-art storage systems which feature very large capacity,

    switched internal architecture, and virtual storage ports making it possible to get the best return on

    investment. Other benefits of those solutions include flexibility and the possibility to operate in all

    heterogeneous computing environments.

According to the most recent Gartner analyst report, Hitachi Data Systems achieved in 2002 the

    highest growth on the market of storage system management software. The growth rate was as

    high as 77%. Hitachi’s global revenues from storage device sales in the financial year 2002

    (ending in March 2003) were USD 2.249 billion, giving a growth rate of 8% to the previous year.

    Despite the difficult situation on the market, Hitachi expects to increase its sales in FY03 (ending

    March 2004) up to USD 2.5 billion.
