Comprehensive Archiving Solution Delivers Innovative Mobile 'Anywhere Access,' Hits 17 Petabyte Milestone, and Wins Market Share

SAN FRANCISCO, November 8, 2010 - ARMA 2010 — Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader
in infrastructure software for the enterprise today announced a series of
innovations to the Autonomy Consolidated Archive, Autonomy's comprehensive
and integrated archiving solution. These enhancements-which include new
"Anywhere Access" capabilities for iPhone, iPad, and BlackBerry users, as
well as new "Cloud Connect" features for hybrid deployments-continue to
extend Autonomy's position as the market leader in archiving. Autonomy is the
market share leader, with 24% market share, according to Gartner's recently
released "Email Archiving Trends" report(1) and was named a leader in
Gartner's 2010 "Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving."(2) The
Autonomy Consolidated Archive cloud-based offering also recently passed the
17 Petabyte benchmark, representing the world's largest private cloud.

The Autonomy Consolidated Archive (ACA) is a modular, secure, and
integrated solution that enables customers to leverage the same
market-leading archiving technology via an on-premise, cloud-based, hybrid,
or appliance-based approach. ACA provides the industry's only intelligent
governance layer from which businesses can drive their compliance,
eDiscovery, and records management initiatives directly from archived data.
The solution leverages innovative split-cell architecture which keeps two
secure copies of every piece of data, single instance storage design for
managing distributed sources and attachments, and hybrid architecture that
couples on-site architecture with outsourced services for long-term data

Powered by Autonomy's Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL), the ACA
automatically recognizes concepts and context within all forms of
information, and injects this understanding into the company's comprehensive
set of information governance modules, which include Autonomy Early Case
Assessment, Legal Hold, Introspect, Records Manager, Supervisor, and iManage
WorkSite. The ability to understand the meaning of content in the archive
transforms its value from merely protecting and storing data, to identifying
patterns and leveraging its value for business purposes.

"The tremendous success of Autonomy's Consolidated Archive and the
impressive growth of Autonomy's private cloud is the result of our unique
vision for this market," said Mike Sullivan, CEO of Autonomy Protect. "Only
Autonomy can automatically apply governance policies by understanding the
meaning of what's in the information, provide a comprehensive set of modules
that tie the archive directly in to a company's compliance, eDiscovery, and
Records Management initiatives, and make the data directly available via a
cloud, on-premise, hybrid, or appliance approach."

'Anywhere Access' for Mobile Users Including iPhone, iPad, and BlackBerry

The Autonomy Consolidated Archive also includes new "Anywhere Access"
capabilities for mobile users, which greatly benefits organizations that are
rapidly adopting a mobile and cloud computing strategy. ACA's Anywhere Access
technology allows users to instantly find their archived information stored
in the cloud from mobile devices, tablets, and desktops, without installing
any client-side software. Recent emails are viewed in their native format
(PST for Outlook and NSF for Notes). Unlike slow, complex, and costly "file
stubbing" approaches, ACA Anywhere Access is designed for the next generation
of enterprises, which will increasingly leverage a mobile and cloud computing

Innovative "Cloud Connect" Feature Enables Seamless, Gradual Transitions

The solution includes a new feature called "Cloud Connect" which enables
customers to make a seamless, gradual transition to cloud-based archiving.
Businesses can use Cloud Connect to maintain a hybrid deployment that
includes a combination of cloud and on-premise archiving, allocating data to
each environment based on policies and company strategy. "Cloud Connect"
greatly benefits organizations who wish to move to the cloud in small stages;
for instance, if a business would prefer to move only email over six months
old to the cloud, or keep new types of application data, like SharePoint, on

New Connectors Enable Unified View of all Enterprise Content

Autonomy Consolidated Archive also leverages new enhancements to the IDOL
Connector Framework, which allows organizations to form a unified view of all
enterprise content, removing layers of complexity in data management. The
Connector Framework normalizes the control and collection of content to over
400 content repositories and over 1,000 file types. Recently added and
improved connectors include EMC Documentum, Microsoft Outlook 2010, Microsoft
Business Productivity Online Suite, and Lotus Notes.
