Seagate Brings Data Recovery Services Closer to Customers in India

MUMBAI, India - Seagate Technology (NYSE: STX) today announced a strategic partnership with Accel Frontline Ltd to provide professional data recovery services through its extensive network of 36 service centers across 34 cities to serve a growing need in the Indian market.

The announcement is part of Seagate's ongoing expansion of its global data recovery services operations and represents the company's commitment to provide optimum service to customers around the world.

"Corporations and consumers are increasingly placing a premium on the value of digital content they've created for work and play, and they cannot afford the risk of losing digital data that has become such an integral part of them," said Rajesh Khurana, Seagate's country manager for India and SAARC countries. "Seagate understands this and our data recovery services provide a last line of defense against data loss with a best-planned disaster recovery implementation for large corporations."

Seagate's groundbreaking software solution & in-lab recovery services employing a patented SignalTrace™ technology will enable Accel Frontline's service engineers to recover data from media - regardless of brands or formats - that have undergone severe physical damage, liquid damage, fire damage, software corruption, system sabotage and accidental file deletion.

Seagate's SignalTrace™ technology is drive-independent and allows for data recovery from media that cannot be addressed by traditional in-lab recovery methods.

Under the agreement, Accel Frontline will honor and maintain the agreed service level, data quality commitment and customer confidentiality as stated by Seagate; and will adhere to the company's ISO 9001:2000 guidelines to ensure procedural and quality excellence for all data recovery cases.

"The data recovery service that Accel Frontline offers in association with Seagate is yet another step in our effort to become a comprehensive provider of availability services in India," said N.R. Panicker, CEO of Accel Frontline. "Our wide network of support centers will ensure that this service is available to customers all over India."
