The Renault F1 Team is pleased to announce the extension of its partnership with VERITAS Software (NASDAQ: VRTS), the leading storage software provider. The two companies have been in partnership for over 6 years.

Under the new agreement, VERITAS disaster recovery solutions will be deployed not only at the team's headquarters in Enstone, UK where the racing car chassis are developed but also at Viry-Châtillon, France, where the engine development takes place.

Graeme Hackland, IT Manager at Renault F1 Team explains: "In Formula 1 the difference between winning and losing is a mere fraction of a second. We needed a solution that would protect our data right from producing over 10,000 drawings when designing the car, through to the live-feed of data generated during a race."

"In years gone by, data collected from the car during a race would fill up a floppy disk; now this data fills a DVD. Our data is our competitive advantage, and that is why we chose VERITAS Software to provide a comprehensive disaster recovery solution that is the backbone of our infrastructure."
