Emulex and Compuware Team Up to Drastically Improve Data Centre Problem Identification and Resolution

New Integration Empowers Operations and Network Teams to Resolve Issues Using Both Real-time and Retrospective Performance Analysis, With Packet-level Detail

CISCO LIVE, SAN FRANCISCO, DETROIT and COSTA MESA, Calif, 20 May 2014 - Emulex Corporation (NYSE:ELX), a leader in network connectivity, monitoring and management, and Compuware (Nasdaq: CPWR), a leader in application performance management (APM), today announced the availability of the Endace Fusion™ Connector for Compuware APM's Data Centre Real-User Monitoring (DC RUM) solution. The Endace Fusion Connector for Compuware APM's DC RUM represents a commitment by both companies to deliver the best-of-breed application-aware network performance management (AA-NPM) solutions that customers and resellers need to meet the challenges of today's networks.

"The lines separating the traditional APM and NPM markets have blurred, and the framework of these solutions are inextricably linked. Solutions for today's high-density, highly virtualised networks require both on-demand and retrospective network data to aid in the resolution of difficult application performance issues," said John Van Siclen, general manager of Compuware's APM business unit. "The combination of Compuware APM's DC RUM and Emulex EndaceProbe TM Intelligent Network Recorder (INR) provides the high-accuracy, highly scalable solution to ensure the availability of networked applications."

"One of the greatest challenges when troubleshooting application performance on dense 10GbE networks is capturing and accessing relevant network data," said Mike Riley, senior vice president and general manager of the Endace division of Emulex. "With this new Endace Fusion Connector for Compuware APM's DC RUM, we provide real-time performance monitoring and efficient access to historical packet-level data, so when a subtle or intermittent problem occurs, customers can quickly discover the root cause. The combination of these tools in a best-of-breed AA-NPM solution for our customers will significantly speed the resolution of difficult issues, and provides our channel partners with a competitively-priced solution for their customer base."

The Endace Fusion Connector for Compuware APM's DC RUM automates workflows by allowing the exchange of alerts and packet-level data in real-time, providing users with true end-to-end application performance and network visibility from Compuware APM's DC RUM dashboard. In addition, the Endace Fusion Connector for Compuware APM's DC RUM enables lossless data collection for customers migrating from a 1GbE to 10GbE-based network environment, allowing customers to increase their network speed while maintaining complete network data capture and storage.

The benefits to end users of the Endace Fusion Connector for Compuware APM's DC RUM include enabling rapid collaboration between network and application teams, immediate data availability to aid troubleshooting, the ability to collect and collate data from multiple points on their network, and the availability of contextual packet-level data for post-event forensics and analysis. The Endace Fusion Connector for Compuware APM's DC RUM is part of the Endace Fusion Ecosystem™ program, and is available as part of DC RUM version 12.2. This development represents an on-going commitment by Compuware and Emulex to provide customers and channel partners with best-of-breed APM solutions.

"We have a large number of customers who value having best-of-breed tools for their solutions, and we use the technical expertise of our staff and the capabilities of our Advanced Technology Centre to help them explore, evaluate, architect and implement those solutions. We are excited to work with Emulex and Compuware to bring AA-NPM solutions to market, and see the Endace Connector for Compuware APM's DC RUM as the first in a long line of solutions resulting from this partnership."

"Many of our customers are looking for new ways to become more responsive to changing market conditions, improve their end user experience and operate more efficiently," said Greg Mikkelsen, general manager of Gen-i's Enterprise, Commercial and Trans-Tasman business. "When customers deploy their mission-critical applications in managed service environments, being able to assess and manage application performance is always an important consideration. Gen-i's new high-performance management service leverages the joint Compuware/Emulex solution to help customers identify and fix performance and security issues quickly, improving our customers' ability to meet their critical business objectives."

"Safe Harbor" Statement
"Safe Harbor'' Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995: With the exception of historical information, the statements set forth above, contain forward-looking statements that involve risk and uncertainties. We expressly disclaim any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or changes to these forward-looking statements that may be made to reflect any future events or circumstances. We wish to caution readers that a number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. These factors include the possibility that all or a substantial portion of the cost savings targeted by us will not be realized on a timely basis or at all even though we expect to incur charges relating to the cost saving initiative and that the share repurchases implemented by us may not be completed in whole or in part or within the expected timeframe. The assumptions on which the cost savings, share repurchase and capital return goals and expectations are based necessarily involve judgments with respect to, among other things, economic, competitive and financial market conditions and the impact of the cost savings initiative on our customers, all of which are difficult or impossible to predict and many of which are beyond the Company's control. Furthermore, our proposed changes to the membership of our board of directors may not have the desired effect in helping us achieve and implement our business and strategic goals. These factors also include the possibility that we may not realize the anticipated benefits from the acquisition of Endace Limited on a timely basis or at all, and may be unable to integrate the technology, operations and personnel of Endace into our existing operations in a timely and efficient manner. In addition, intellectual property claims, with or without merit, could result in costly litigation, cause product shipment delays, require us to indemnify customers, or require us to enter into royalty or licensing agreements, which may or may not be available. Furthermore, we have in the past obtained, and may be required in the future to obtain, licenses of technology owned by other parties. We cannot be certain that the necessary licenses will be available or that they will be obtainable on commercially reasonable terms. If we were to fail to obtain such royalty or licensing agreements in a timely manner and on reasonable terms, our business, results of operations and financial condition could be materially adversely affected. Lawsuits present inherent risks, any of which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, or results of operations. Such potential risks include continuing expenses of litigation, loss of patent rights, monetary damages, injunctions against the sale of products incorporating the technology in question, counterclaims, attorneys' fees, incremental costs associated with product or component redesigns, liabilities to customers under reimbursement agreements or contractual indemnification provisions, and diversion of management's attention from other business matters. In addition, the fact that the economy generally, and the network connectivity and visibility market segments specifically, have been in a state of uncertainty makes it difficult to determine if past experience is a good guide to the future and makes it impossible to determine if markets will grow or shrink in the short term. Continued weakness in domestic and worldwide macro-economic conditions, related disruptions in world credit and equity markets, and the resulting economic uncertainty for our customers, as well as the overall network connectivity and visibility markets, has and could continue to adversely affect our revenues and results of operations. As a result of these uncertainties, we are unable to predict our future results with any accuracy. Other factors affecting these forward-looking statements include but are not limited to the following: faster than anticipated declines in the storage networking market, slower than expected growth of the converged networking market or the failure of our Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) customers to successfully incorporate our products into their systems; our dependence on a limited number of customers and the effects of the loss of, decrease in or delays of orders by any such customers, or the failure of such customers to make timely payments; the emergence of new or stronger competitors as a result of consolidation movements in the market; the timing and market acceptance of our products or our OEM customers' new or enhanced products; costs associated with entry into new areas of the network connectivity and visibility markets; the variability in the level of our backlog and the variable and seasonal procurement patterns of our customers; any inadequacy of our intellectual property protection and the costs of actual or potential third-party claims of infringement and any related indemnity obligations or adverse judgments; the effect of any actual or potential unsolicited offers to acquire us; proxy contests or the activities of activist investors; impairment charges, including but not limited to goodwill and intangible assets; changes in tax rates or legislation; the effects of acquisitions; the effects of terrorist activities, natural disasters, and any resulting disruption in our supply chain or customer purchasing patterns or any other resulting economic or political instability; the highly competitive nature of the markets for our products as well as pricing pressures that may result from such competitive conditions; the effect of rapid migration of customers towards newer, lower cost product platforms; transitions from board or box level to application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) solutions for selected applications; a shift in unit product mix from higher-end to lower-end or mezzanine card products; a faster than anticipated decrease in the average unit selling prices or an increase in the manufactured cost of our products; delays in product development; our reliance on third-party suppliers and subcontractors for components and assembly; our ability to attract and retain key technical personnel; our ability to benefit from our research and development activities as well as government grants related thereto; our dependence on international sales and internationally produced products; changes in accounting standards; and any resulting regulatory changes on our business. These and other factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements and are discussed in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our recent filings on Forms 10-K and 10-Q, under the caption "Risk Factors."
