Nexsan and Jack Henry & Associates, Inc.® Announce Strategic Alliance

Leading Provider of Information and Transaction Processing Solutions for the Financial Services Industry Integrates

THOUSAND OAKS, CA–( EMWNews – April 1, 2008) – Nexsan, a leading provider of

energy-efficient, long-term disk storage, today announced a strategic

alliance and marketing agreement with Jack Henry & Associates, Inc.

(NASDAQ: JKHY), a leading provider of integrated computer systems for

financial services organizations.

Based on terms of the agreement, Jack Henry & Associates integrated the

Nexsan Assureon® secure storage solution with its Synergy™ Enterprise

Content Management (ECM) platform and its 4|sight™ check imaging

platform. Synergy is the modular ECM solution marketed to the more than

1,700 banks supported by Jack Henry Banking™ and the more than 650

credit unions supported by its Symitar™ division, and sold outside its

core client base through its ProfitStars® brand. 4|sight is the check

imaging platform provided by Jack Henry Banking.

Nexsan Assureon is a secure, intelligent archive storage solution that

combines advanced encryption with content addressed storage, information

lifecycle management (ILM) technology, and other patent-pending security

features into a single, fully integrated disk-based storage solution.

Assureon was designed from the ground up specifically to address the

long-term storage and management of fixed content and compliance

information, making it ideal for organizations like financial institutions

that want to continually improve business practices and proactively comply

with regulations being enforced by numerous agencies.

This fully integrated ECM/Nexsan imaging solution is already in full

customer production. Alpine Bank of Glenwood Springs, Colo., recently

implemented the integrated Synergy/Assureon solution to support its

expansion, increase data protection, and achieve higher energy savings.

This regional bank which has approximately $2 billion in assets, 35

locations throughout Colorado, and more than 100,000 customers, stored more

than two million document pages in the first two months and has realized a

30 percent net storage savings.

According to Tony Wormington, president of Jack Henry & Associates, “Our

customers want sophisticated imaging solutions that require less physical

space, save power, maximize system availability, ensure data protection,

and operate in the event of a local emergency — all while improving

customer service and satisfaction. We believe the most practical and

efficient way to consistently provide state-of-the-art imaging solutions is

to align ourselves with innovative providers of specific and proven add-on

technologies such as Nexsan Assureon. We partnered with Nexsan based on

its ability to provide archive storage solutions that combine the

high-density storage capacity, leading-edge security features, energy

efficiency, and price/performance our customers need.”

Philip Black, Nexsan’s president and CEO, said the strategic alliance and

marketing agreement with Jack Henry & Associates marks the first time

Nexsan has aligned with a market-specific system integrator (SI). “We are

thrilled with our relationship with Jack Henry & Associates and the

opportunity it provides for us to move deeper into the financial services

industry. This industry is a primary target market for Assureon, which was

designed specifically for businesses that demand reliable, long-term disk

storage at affordable prices.”

Nexsan has built a strong reputation for a complete line of long-term disk

storage solutions that offer exceptional price/performance and superior

energy efficiency. A pioneer in “green storage,” Nexsan has delivered

energy-efficient storage solutions since 2006, allowing organizations to

power down disk drives to an idle state to conserve more than 30 times the

energy of a conventional fibre channel solution per petabyte of storage,

yet still provide nearly instantaneous access to data. Nexsan products,

which are available through its extensive worldwide network of value-added

resellers (VARs), are currently used by a wide range of Fortune 500

companies and vertical markets, including major governmental agencies and

healthcare facilities.
