     "Compaq's HPTC customer base is ideally suited for our large-scale storage
 data management solutions," said Richard Kay, president and CEO, OTG Software.
 "These customers need scalable performance, with transparent access to huge

 off-line storage media," according to Rich Marcello, vice president and
 general manager of Compaq's High Performance Systems Division.  "OTG's storage
 and database management solutions will enable our customers to keep this data
 online where it is most accessible in a very cost effective manner."
