1 The SparkWeave Private Cloud & Secure Collaboration Suite The SparkWeave Private Cloud is a virtual platform hosted in the customer s data center. SparkWeave is storage agnostic, autonomously providing enterprise grade high availability, efficiency, control, security, and compliance. The platform provides these core features across the SparkWeave application and can be leveraged with your current applications (3 rd party or custom) through our developer REST API. The SparkWeave Private Cloud Storage Platform offers flexible deployment options and can run on a single node (virtual machine) for smaller deployments or can scale up to many nodes for handling tens of thousands of users. The intelligent SparkWeave design drives down storage costs without sacrificing security or speed, with effortless expansion and contraction of clustered storage space and configurable levels of fault tolerance and redundancy across low cost storage nodes. The storage subsystem can be deployed across a large range of networked storage (including inexpensive JBOD s) for creating massively scalable, highly reliable, and inexpensive file stores. SparkWeave takes the mystery and complexity out of the private cloud, its creepy simple.

3 SparkWeave Solutions for your Dilemmas Consumerization of IT Dilemma End users are bringing unauthorized, consumer tools into the work environment creating many issues for the IT staff. Take control of the consumerization of IT, support the device by supplying the applications. Large Enterprise End-Users need solutions that: keep them in their workflow provide access to company data from gateway devices give the ability to exchange large files internally and externally Large Enterprise IT Departments need solutions that: protect the integrity of sensitive data meet compliance standards are massively scalable Data Security/Compliance Dilemma Data security issues are at an all-time high and data must be accessible in the event of an audit or lawsuit. Governments have introduced stringent data protection legislation such as Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, and HIPAA to provide controls over sensitive information. Industries, such as the Payment Card Industry (PCI), have implemented strict requirements for data security with contractually enforced penalties. If a breach were to take place: PCI DSS-credit card processing privileges can be revoked GLBA-$100,000 fine for each violation HIPAA-$25,000 per provision, $250,000 fine/prison for corporate officers Multiple reports from independent analysts have shown unstructured data compliance costs firms millions annually. Complexity/Integration Dilemma Constantly emerging new technology makes datacenter today more complex than ever before. Although regarded as one of the major trends for 2012 and beyond renowned industry analysts and experts write long books about the complexity of implementing private clouds and the many moving parts. The SparkWeave Private Cloud can be deployed in minutes and end-users can instantly start running the pre-packaged applications. The REST API allows you to leverage the SparkWeave Private Cloud with your 3 rd party or custom applications. SparkWeave takes the mystery and complexity out of the private cloud, it s creepily simple. Storage Costs Dilemma Businesses are drowning in unstructured data. It s generally accepted that unstructured data accounts for at least 80% of an organization s data. The volume of unstructured data that is generated each year within an enterprise can be very costly in terms of storage. IDC projects 61.7% growth for documents in traditional data centers from 2008 to 2012 vs. 21.8% for block data. ESG stated that the biggest opportunity for storage savings comes from addressing unstructured data.

5 SparkWeave - Viral by Nature Communication The SparkWeave Secure Collaboration Suite is used to communicate with other people, many of which would be good candidates for SparkWeave. The applications are tools used to connect individuals and allow them to communicate in a secure/compliant manner. Once the licensed sender initiates communication the recipient is seamlessly directed through the onboarding process so that they can view the secure or large file. One of the most important features of our suite of applications is the ability to communicate with individuals outside the organization (clients, partners, vendors, etc.). Guest users are limited to communicating with a licensed user and would need to purchase a license to gain the ability to on-board new guest users. Message Tags The web portal and s can be branded by the customer to give the solution a corporate look and feel. However; all messages will contain a tag stating that the message was sent through the SparkWeave Secure Collaboration Suite, not the normal system. This gives the recipient assurance that the message or file was delivered securely. Collaboration Having the ability to securely access files from anywhere on any device has value to the individual. However, additional value can be added by sharing folders with individuals internal or external to the organization. Website Embedding SparkWeave offers the ability to tie in to a current webpage to make files accessible to the general public. These users are inherently using SparkWeave just by visiting the website and viewing files. Word of Mouth Our customers believe in our vision and are passionate about our solution. Having a suite of applications allows our products to be seamlessly integrated and much easier to use than multiple point products. SparkWeave gives endusers freedom, enablement, and ease of use that is unmatched by point products. Delivering the suite of fully integrated applications makes deployment and management a breeze for administrators.
6 The SparkWeave Story The SparkWeave Vision Deliver the gateway access end-users demand, in a way that is secure & compliant, and offer built in resiliency and data efficiency. The Company SparkWeave is a channel centric sales organization leveraging the expertise and relationships of the VAR channel.

SparkWeave is priced competitively per application and inherently provides a platform to grow the application suite on. SparkWeave can be delivered and installed remotely within minutes. The Evolution of the Data Center Storage Virtualization Centralized Storage platforms (SAN/NAS) have become much more intelligent and in turn expensive in order to solve the problems of data growth and the operational expenses that accompany it (power, cooling, and floor space). De-duplication (reducing the number of copies, great for unstructured data) has become an industry buzzword associated with data reduction and efficiency. The Evolution of the Data Center Server Virtualization VMware (and others) have created systems that allow servers to work together and create a pool of shared processing power for the application servers. This concept allows customers to partition the physical hardware into many virtual machines. This allows for much greater efficiency and lowered capital expenditures on servers, just like the SAN/NAS does with the hard drives. Cloud Computing and the Consumerization of IT Large enterprises are not rapidly moving sensitive company information into the public cloud. The consumerization of IT is the influx of unauthorized, unsanctioned consumer tools into the enterprise because the end users prefer the ease of use and functionality of their personal, consumer, public cloud applications. This can create many control and security issues for the IT department and risks compromising the integrity of sensitive data. The Evolution of the Data Center - SparkWeave The SparkWeave Private Cloud is a virtual platform hosted in the customer s data center. SparkWeave is storage agnostic, autonomously providing enterprise grade high availability, efficiency, control, security, and compliance. The SparkWeave Secure Collaboration Suite of applications is hosted on the SparkWeave Private Cloud Storage Platform and delivers the gateway access end-users demand, in a secure/compliant manner, keeping unwanted consumer applications out of the large enterprise. Take control of the consumerization of IT, support the device by supplying the applications.
