KOM Networks’ Junk-A-Juke program responds to the needs of Canadian children and Haitian Relief efforts through FTC Canada

Ottawa, Canada – January 20, 2010 – On the heels of announcing its Junk-A-Juke program, KOM Networks™, world leading provider of storage management solutions for secure archiving compliant data protection and retention, today announces the expansion of its Junk-A-Juke program to benefit many of the 900,000 Canadian children being helped by FTC Canada, an affiliate of Feed The Children U.S.

This unique program collects and recycles obsolete and legacy storage equipment and donates the money generated to provide food, shelter, medicine and other necessities to little ones and their families. In exchange for the older equipment, KOM offers a new Dell Powered KOMpliance Archive with equal capacity and superior performance, a fully compliant enterprise class server and archive solution free-of-charge with a three year maintenance agreement. KOM’s goal is to collect and recycle enough hardware to feed one million children!

FTC Canada has responded by landing this morning at 8 am a medical emergency response team of 3 doctors and 11 paramedics in Port au Prince. They have with them much needed medicines and supplies to continue to save lives right in the heart of the devastation. Over the coming weeks and months FTC will continue to send teams, supplies and food to provide relief to Haiti. For the next 90 days, all proceeds from equipment collected and recycled as part of the Junk-A-Juke program will be donated to FTC Canada to assist them with their Haitian relief efforts. “Even though you may not be able to do something directly to help the earthquake victims, you can still help in kind to those who can,” says Ken Dick, president FTC Canada.

“We’re proud to include FTC Canada in our recycling for charity program and provide assistance to children in our own backyard,” says Kamel Shaath, CTO at KOM Networks. “The recent images of devastation and chaos are heartfelt and very moving. We feel strongly that we have to do something and help. We are pleased to join the FTC Canada Haiti Relief efforts. We have already collected multiple end-of-life optical jukeboxes and other data storage devices and anticipate many more of our business partners will contribute, knowing that they are helping kids and making a difference.”
