   Ground breaking online backup solution, Memory Box, representing SA in National iAwards


Memory Box, an innovative, South Australian developed, community online backup solution, is a
finalist in the 2009 National iAwards, Australia's leading ICT industry awards.

Memory Box will be judged against other State winners after winning the SA state iAward in the
‘tools and infrastructure’ category.

Memory Box provides an innovative solution to online backup by using a community of users on
which parts of the backups are stored. It is the first system in Australia to use a community of
networked computers to store backups rather than a single server in a data centre.

Every year, one in 10 hard drives fail and 40% of computer users lose precious memories or hard
work…yet many users still do not backup their files. Memory Box research showed this was often
due to apathy and users seeing it as a time consuming hassle. The Memory Box solution solves this
as it is automated and runs in the background of a user’s computer after a simple set up.

Memory Box is in discussions with several ISP’s about utilizing the solution as an ‘add on’ service
for users. As part of the State award prize, Memory Box also get to exhibit at CeBIT; Australia’s
largest technology conference and exhibition, where they are lined up to discuss partnerships
with a host of IT suppliers.

Trevor Glen, Director of Memory Box, stated: “We are excited about representing SA in the
National finals and about the opportunity to get this solution in front of key players at CeBIT. We
know the technology is good and are keen to show it off.”

The finals judging process will take place in Melbourne on the 29th and 30th of April 2009 and
each category is judged on 5 criteria:

Uniqueness
Market Potential
Functionality / Features
Quality / Application of Technology
Application

Memory Box is up against other State winners some of which are global organisations with several
hundred employees and millions of dollars in revenues.

“It’s tough competition,” Trevor adds, “but sometimes the best innovations are the simplest. While
Memory Box has significant complexity in its technical development, the end user experience is
just what home and business users want from their backup solution: Simple, easy to use,
automated and off site.”
