Fujitsu's GR Series Storage Solution Earns
Oracle's OSCP Certification

Tokyo, January 10, 2002 -- Fujitsu Limited announced today that the Remote Equivalent Copy (REC) (*1) function for remote mirroring in its GR Series storage solution has successfully completed Oracle's OSCP (Oracle Storage Compatibility Program) (*2) testing. The certification validates Fujitsu's storage solutions integration with leading database management systems for e-business.

This achievement is the result of the strengthened alliance announced December 5, 2001 between Fujitsu and Oracle Corporation Japan to promote technologies and solutions for highly available open platform systems targeting non-stop, mission-critical systems operating 24 hours, 365 days a year.

REC is a function that allows data copying between separate GR Series storage systems at separate remote locations. Now, with the REC's OSCP certification, customers can with further confidence create a more reliable disaster recovery systems which will safely copy data from Oracle Database at a primary site to remote locations. The combination of the GR Series and Oracle Database thus allows customers to quickly deploy a highly reliable system that will protect their valuable data and enable them to keep their businesses running in the event of a disaster.

In cooperation with Oracle, Fujitsu looks forward to acquiring further OSCP certifications, participating in the HARD Initiative(*3) to promote proactive mechanisms to prevent data loss, and offering top-quality storage solutions that are verified compatible with Oracle Database.
