BakBone will participate in OSDL´s Data Center Linux Working Group and bring enterprise Linux storage expertise to Lab initiatives.

Stockholm, Sweden — March 1, 2004 — The Open Source Development Labs (OSDL), and BakBone Software™ (TSX: BKB, OTCBB: BKBOF), a leading provider of data protection software, today announced that BakBone has joined the OSDL, a global consortium dedicated to accelerating the adoption of Linux.

Through participation in OSDL´s Data Center Linux Working Group, BakBone will help the working group focus on enterprise Linux data protection technologies. Data storage and protection are recognized as key to the acceleration of enterprise-wide adoption of Linux-based applications.
