If, as a result of a matter within the scope of the indemnification provisions of Section 15.1.1, an injunction is issued against the marketing or distributing of Co-branded Products, or if in SSI's or its Subsidiaries' opinion a Co-branded Product is likely to become the subject of a meritorious infringement claim, SSI or its Subsidiaries shall, at its or their option and expense: (a) obtain for StorageTek or its Subsidiaries that are the subject of such third party claim the right to continue such marketing and distribution; (b) replace or modify the Co-branded Product (and any similarly situated Co-branded Products) so that the Co-branded Product(s) become non-infringing while being capable of performing the same function without degradation of performance; or (c) if SSI or its Subsidiaries determine that neither of (a) or (b) is commercially reasonable, terminate the license for and repurchase such Co-branded Product (and any similarly situated Co-branded Products) for a sum equal to the original purchase price.

For the avoidance of doubt, after the Effective Date the reconfiguration activities of StorageTek Toulouse under Section 5.5 shall not be deemed a combination, addition or modification of a Co-Branded Product 19 for purposes of clause (a) of this Section 15.1.3, provided such reconfiguration activities only are done using system components and Software obtained from SSI and the resulting configuration is reasonably established by StorageTek to be one that SSI would have done consistent with the specifications for Co-Branded Products had SSI performed the reconfiguration activities. 15.1.4 No Limitations. SSI's or its Subsidiaries' duties and obligations under this Section 15.1 shall not be limited by any provision contained in this Agreement, including without limitation, the limitations set forth in Section 14; provided, however, neither SSI nor its Subsidiaries shall have any liability to StorageTek or its Subsidiaries under the foregoing indemnity for StorageTek's or its Subsidiaries' lost profits. 15.2 Intellectual Property Indemnification by StorageTek.

StorageTek's duties and obligations under this Section 15.2 shall not be limited by any provision contained in this Agreement, including without limitation, the limitations set forth in Section 14; provided, however, neither StorageTek nor its Subsidiaries shall have any liability to SSI or its Subsidiaries under the foregoing indemnity for SSI's or its Subsidiaries' lost profits. 20 15.3 StorageTek.

Each Party will maintain and keep confidential the Confidential Information of the other Party in accordance with this Section 16. The Party to whom the Confidential Information belongs shall be referred to as the "PROVIDER," and the party who receives the Confidential Information shall be referred to as the "RECIPIENT." 16.2 Use of Confidential Information. The Recipient agrees to use the Confidential Information solely for performing its duties and obligations under this Agreement and for no other purpose. 16.3 Disclosure of Confidential Information. The Recipient shall protect the Confidential Information by using the same degree of care to prevent unauthorized use, dissemination or publication of the Confidential Information as it uses to protect its own Confidential Information of like nature; provided however, that in no event shall Recipient use less than a reasonable degree of care to protect the Confidential Information. The Recipient shall keep the Confidential Information confidential and shall not disclose the Confidential Information to any person or entity other than such employees, contractors, consultants, advisors, and legal and financial advisors of Recipient who have a bona fide need to know and who are subject to a written obligation of confidentiality substantially similar to the obligations contained herein. The Recipient shall be responsible and liable for any use or disclosure of the Confidential Information by such parties in violation of this Agreement. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to prevent disclosure of any of the Confidential Information if such disclosure is legally required to be made in a judicial, administrative or governmental proceeding pursuant to a valid subpoena or other applicable order or to meet securities laws or regulatory requirements; provided, however, the Recipient shall give Provider at least 10 days prior written notice (unless less time is permitted by the applicable proceedings) before disclosing any of the Confidential Information in any such proceeding or to meet such laws or regulations and, in making such disclosure, the Recipient shall disclose only that portion thereof required to be disclosed and shall take all reasonable efforts to preserve the confidentiality thereof, including obtaining protective orders and supporting the Provider in intervention. 22 16.4 Residuals.

The Recipient shall not have any obligation to limit or restrict the assignment of such persons or to pay royalties for any work resulting from the use of Residuals. However, this subparagraph shall not be deemed to grant to the Recipient a license under the Provider's copyrights or patents. In the absence of another applicable agreement to the contrary, the Parties shall have the freedom to use Residual information in the development, manufacturing, marketing, performance, maintenance, sale and delivery of any products and services.

SSI agrees to maintain a quality assurance system to ensure that processes of design, sourcing, manufacture, test, failure analysis, repair, packaging and shipping of the Co-branded Products is under continuous control including in accordance with the performance specifications contained in the Specifications and the critical end product parameters and limits, attached to the Agreement as EXHIBIT E (CRITICAL END PRODUCT PARAMETERS) (the "PARAMETERS"), which Schedule SSI will use reasonable efforts to provide within [*] of the Effective Date. SSI will take appropriate corrective action with regard to any deficiencies identified by either SSI or StorageTek as specified in the response and escalation matrixes set forth on SCHEDULE 2 OF EXHIBIT B (CO-BRANDED PRODUCT SERVICE AND SUPPORT AGREEMENT). SSI agrees to participate in StorageTek's sourcing supplier scorecard process (the "SCORECARD"). StorageTek will communicate to SSI Quality department on a [*] basis the resulting field data for MTBR and FIR performance and on a [*] basis the StorageTek Scorecard indicating a numerical basis relating to the Co-branded Products' quality, delivery and pricing. The Scorecard will identify areas for improvement by SSI and StorageTek may require SSI to deliver an action plan that demonstrates a plan for this improvement. If StorageTek requests an action plan, SSI will provide the action plan within [*] from StorageTek's delivery of the Scorecard so long as StorageTek has provided SSI with MTBF and FIR Measurement on a [*] basis. SSI will include in the action plan the minimum actions SSI will take, who is accountable for the action resolution and a time frame when the action is to be completed. SSI will provide StorageTek with a status of the action plan on a [*] basis until SSI completes all identified actions. An example of the Scorecard is set forth in EXHIBIT G (SCORECARD). 20.2 Plug and Play. StorageTek and SSI agree the "PLUG AND PLAY MEASUREMENT" for the Products shall be equal to or less than the FIR Measurement for the identified period established in EXHIBIT A (FIR MEASUREMENT), which may be amended by the parties periodically. StorageTek will provide written notice to SSI if the Plug and Play Measurement exceeds the FIR Measurement. In the event that the Plug and Play Measurement increases beyond the FIR Measurement for each [*] based on Co-Branded Product shipped to StorageTek and it Subsidiaries for that [*], then SSI shall immediately develop and initiate a corrective action plan with notice to and participation by StorageTek (if StorageTek so elects) [*] to StorageTek in order to resolve any problems and to reach the FIR Measurement. SSI will respond to and resolve any problems pursuant to the response and escalation matrixes set forth on SCHEDULE 2 OF EXHIBIT B (CO-BRANDED PRODUCT SERVICE AND SUPPORT AGREEMENT). SSI shall demonstrate to StorageTek's satisfaction, via time-to-failure data, the applicable FIR Measurement has been achieved. StorageTek shall also have the right to cancel (without incurring any cancellation charges) any orders already submitted but not yet delivered in the 27 event the Plug and Play Measurement increases beyond the FIR Measurement. Should the Plug and Play Measurement continue to remain above the applicable FIR Measurement for [*], SSI's Vice President and General Manager for SSI Wichita will meet with StorageTek's Vice President of Quality in Louisville, Colorado to establish appropriate corrective actions. 20.3 Product Reliability. SSI agrees to ensure that over the applicable warranty period for the Co-branded Products specified in Section 13 will meet the quality and reliability standards as defined by the Specifications and the Parameters ("RELIABILITY"). If over the Specifications' defined life of the Product, the Product(s) fail to meet the Reliability standards, then SSI shall use its reasonable commercial efforts to implement a corrective action plan and will deliver, if applicable, engineering change orders, packaging changes, test procedures, Software and Hardware changes, process changes that affect Form, Fit, Function, Reliability, Maintainability, Compatibility or Interoperability, [*] to StorageTek in order to achieve the Reliability standards. SSI will implement a corrective action plan pursuant to the response and escalation matrix set forth on SCHEDULE 2 OF EXHIBIT B (CO-BRANDED PRODUCT SERVICE AND SUPPORT AGREEMENT). Should the Products fail to meet the Reliability standards for [*], SSI's Vice President and General Manager of SSI Wichita will meet with StorageTek's Vice President of Quality in Louisville, Colorado to establish appropriate corrective actions. 20.4 Annual Return Rate. SSI will track a [*] Annual Return Rate ("ARR") for all disk drives, controllers, and environmental services modules (each an "ARR COMPONENT") and will monitor the ARR monthly. SSI sets the goal for the ARR (the "ARR GOALS") based on the MTBF as stated in the engineering specification for the ARR Component as set forth on SCHEDULE 20.4 (ARR). SSI will calculate the ARR Goal by taking [*]. If the actual ARR exceeds the ARR Goal for a period of [*], SSI will immediately develop and initiate a corrective action plan with notice to and participation by StorageTek (if StorageTek so elects) at no charge to StorageTek in order to resolve any problems to bring performance below the ARR Goals. The corrective action may include, but is not limited to, requesting failure analysis of all failed/returned ARR Components. SSI will then pareto the failure analysis results and each failure mechanism will be subject to corrective action(s) either internally at SSI or at the sub-tier vendor, depending on the corrective action needed. SSI will monitor the effectiveness of the corrective actions by the Defective Parts Per Million's measured through SSI's manufacturing process and the return rate from field failures as described on SCHEDULE 20.4, (ARR). [*]. Should the actual ARR continue to remain above the applicable ARR Goal for [*], SSI's Vice President and General Manager for SSI Wichita will meet with StorageTek's Vice President of Quality in Louisville, Colorado to establish appropriate corrective actions. 20.5 Failure Analysis. Within [*], SSI shall perform a formal failure analysis to root cause for all field related failures or where a Product falls outside of defined Reliability standards of the Specifications. SSI shall provide StorageTek the results of the analysis, SSI's corrective action, data regarding the effectiveness of the corrective action and disposition of Spare Parts affected by the corrective action. In addition, design failure mode effect analysis or process failure effect mode analysis, if deemed appropriate by SSI, will be conducted as part of the corrective action process. If in any [*] SSI fails to meet the minimum failure analysis "track to closure" performance minimum in the Scorecard, SSI's Vice President and General Manager for will meet with StorageTek's Vice President of Quality in Louisville, Colorado to establish appropriate corrective actions. 20.6 Epidemic Failure. In the event that StorageTek has determined that the Co-branded Product contains one or more potential Epidemic Failure Defects, StorageTek shall promptly give SSI written notice of all relevant details with respect to such potential Epidemic Failure Defect(s). StorageTek may, at its sole discretion, issue a stop shipment order pursuant to Section 20.7 to SSI for the affected Product until the Epidemic Failure is corrected. In addition, SSI shall, at StorageTek's option, either: (a) exchange the Product containing the Epidemic Failure Defect for a new Product; (b) repair all Epidemic Failure Defects at SSI's cost; or (c) accept return of the Product with Epidemic Failure Defects and grant StorageTek credit or replacement, at StorageTek's option, for the Product. "EPIDEMIC FAILURE DEFECT" means defects in design, procured material or manufacturing resulting in the occurrence of multiple failures of the same component(s) in Systems delivered to StorageTek or it's designee, for the same single root cause after completion of root cause failure analysis by SSI. "EPIDEMIC FAILURE" occurs when a product is not meeting Reliability standards, and when a specific Epidemic Failure Defect represents [*] or more of the annualized return rate for a 28 specific Product shipped to StorageTek and its Subsidiaries in a [*] period using a Pareto analysis. For the purpose of calculating the Epidemic Failure percentage, the defect to be measured shall be only the defined and specific defect from the same components, parts or assemblies that are part of the System. The existence of an Epidemic Failure shall be established in good faith between StorageTek and SSI, as supported by service records for a Product and by using the annualized return rate for the specified period that the monitored Product is not in conformance with the applicable Specification. 20.7 Stop Shipment Process. SSI shall maintain a documented product stop shipment process that is invoked in response to, and to establish containment of, any Co-branded Product issues or defects that are identified to SSI by StorageTek that actually or may potentially adversely affect data integrity, safety or create other significant operation impacts to StorageTek or StorageTek's End Users. At a minimum, the process will provide for: (a) Status updates to StorageTek during the course of problem resolution detailing actions taken and progress made toward resolution by SSI, to be furnished at intervals agreed upon between StorageTek and SSI on a case-by-case basis; (b) Positive stop shipment of the Co-branded Product pending problem resolution; (c) Prompt notification to StorageTek at any time that SSI initiate's a Stop Order or a Stop Ship that impacts shipment to StorageTek or its End Users of a Co-branded Product; (d) Prompt notification to StorageTek identifying any specific serial number(s) of Co-branded Product or range of Co-branded Product that has been previously delivered to StorageTek or StorageTek's End Users that may be affected by the issue causing the Stop Ship or Stop Order; and Immediate allocation of Co-branded Product pursuant to Section 6.6 and appropriate SSI resources to resolve the problem on an urgent priority basis as defined in the response and escalation matrix set forth on SCHEDULE 2 OF EXHIBIT B (CO-BRANDED PRODUCT SERVICE AND SUPPORT AGREEMENT). SSI will include in its communication of Stop Order to StorageTek, the type of problem (field issue; manufacturing issue or component issue), description of the situation, customers that are affected, parts that are affected, a failure analysis, what are SSI's next actions, corrective action, delivery schedule and date and time for next update on the situation. 20.8 ISO. SSI confirms that all of its processes are ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001 certified and will maintain such certification throughout the term of this Agreement. SSI also confirms that its process for the supply and service of the Co-branded Products comply with these ISO quality standards. SSI will promptly notify StorageTek if SSI fails to maintain these certifications. 21 AUDIT RIGHTS 21.1 Plant Audit. At StorageTek's sole expense, StorageTek may, upon 5 business days prior notice to SSI, conduct a commercially reasonable audit of SSI's plant to assess effectiveness of SSI's quality and manufacturing engineering and manufacturing processes, sourcing process, statistical process control records, quality assurance procedures, packaging and shipping procedures along with all associated quality records and procedures and functions relating to Co-branded Products affected by the terms of this Agreement; provided, however, that in the event that notice would unreasonably disrupt SSI's business, then the Parties shall mutually agree upon a more reasonable time period for such audit. Any discrepancies discovered as a result of the audit will be jointly reviewed, with any remediation actions to be mutually agreed upon, with time frames and milestones clearly documented and tracked by both Parties. 21.2 Other Audit Rights. Each Party shall have the right to audit the other Party's financial records not more than [*] per calendar year using a nationally recognized accounting firm with 5 business days prior notice for the purpose of confirming the other Party's compliance with this Agreement; provided, however, that in the event such 5 business days prior notice would unreasonably disrupt the audited Party's business, then the Parties shall mutually agree upon a more reasonable time period. 29 22 [INTENTIONALLY DELETED] 23 GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS The provisions of Executive Orders 11246 and 11375, relating to equal employment opportunity, are hereby incorporated in this Agreement by reference (the term "SSI" being substituted for "CONTRACTOR" unless the context of the order otherwise requires), unless work performed by SSI under this Agreement is exempted pursuant to such executive orders and the regulations thereunder. SSI agrees to submit all reports, certifications, and other documents required by such executive orders. In the event that any government contract to which StorageTek becomes a party requires inclusion of certain provisions in subcontracts awarded under such contract and in the further event that StorageTek desires to place on SSI, under this Agreement, a purchase order having such required subcontract provisions, SSI shall, if it has been advised in writing of such provisions and accepts the purchase order, be bound by any of such provisions as are additional to, different from or deletions from, certain of the terms of this Agreement. Any purchase order placed by StorageTek on SSI as a subcontract under such government contract shall conspicuously identify the new provisions required under the government contracts. To the extent applicable, each Party shall comply with Federal Acquisition Regulations. 24 [INTENTIONALLY DELETED.] 25 DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND GOVERNING LAW 25.1 Disputes.

The Parties will use commercially reasonable efforts to arrange personal meetings or telephone conferences as needed, at mutually convenient times and places, between negotiations for the Parties at the following successive management levels, each of which will have a period of allotted time as specified below in which to attempt to resolve the dispute.
LEVEL ALLOTTED TIME ----- ------------- [*] [*] [*] [*]
The allotted time for the first level negotiator will begin on the effective date of the Invoking Party's notice. If negotiators at the management level do not achieve resolution at the end of their allotted time, then the allotted time for the negotiations at the final management level, if any, will begin immediately. 25.3 Arbitration. If negotiators at the final management level do not achieve resolution within the allotted time as specified above, either Party may initiate binding arbitration by providing written demand for arbitration to the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services ("JAMS") (with a copy to the other Party), a copy of this Agreement and the administrative fee required by JAMS. The arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules. The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. sec.sec. 1-16, not state law, shall govern the arbitrability of all claims. The written demand for arbitration shall be sufficiently detailed to permit the other Party to understand the claim(s) and identify witnesses and relevant documents. The Parties shall share the remaining cost of the arbitration, including arbitrator's fees, equally; provided, however, each Party shall bear the cost of preparing and presenting its own case (including its own attorneys' fees). If StorageTek is the first to file for arbitration in any dispute, then the arbitration shall be held in San Francisco, California; and, if SSI is the first to file for arbitration in any dispute, then the arbitration shall be held in Denver, Colorado. The arbitrator has no authority to award any indirect, incidental, special, punitive, or consequential damages, including damages for lost profits. The arbitrator's decision shall follow the plain meaning of the Agreement and shall be final, binding, and enforceable in a court of competent jurisdiction. If either Party fails to comply with the dispute resolution process set forth herein (including 30 without limitation, non-payment of an arbitration award) and a Party is required to resort to court proceedings to enforce such compliance, then the non-complying Party shall reimburse all of the costs and expenses incurred by the Party requesting such enforcement (including reasonable attorneys' fees). Notwithstanding anything in this Section 25 to the contrary, in the case of injunctive relief or other remedies with respect to intellectual property rights and indemnifications or breach of confidentiality, either Party may bring suit in a court of competent jurisdiction. If StorageTek is the plaintiff in any such suit, then the Parties shall consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California in San Francisco, California; and, if SSI is the plaintiff in any such suit, then the Parties shall consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the District of Colorado in Denver, Colorado. 25.4 Governing Law.

In such cases, the Parties agree to reasonably cooperate to address special End User requirements, it being acknowledged that StorageTek will [*]. 6 SUPPORT LEVELS -- DEFINITIONS AND PROCESSES. The following definitions and processes shall be used by the Parties in undertaking their respective responsibilities for the Co-branded Products under this Agreement. 6.1 "Level 1 Support" shall mean that level of support for the Co-branded Products that will be provided by StorageTek, including first line, End User contact, most likely via a telephone call handling group provided by StorageTek. Level 1 Support includes: - First contact direct End User interaction - Information collection and analysis - Determination of service entitlement level - Identification of whether the problem is known and has a known solution - Troubleshooting and problem reproduction, as possible - Problem report administration and tracking 6.2 "Level 2 Support" includes product experts who may serve as the escalation point for Level 1 Support. Level 2 Support is expected to resolve all known problems, installation and configuration issues, assist in firmware or driver updates at the End User site, search SSI posted Technical Notes and other technical information made available by SSI or its Subsidiaries that will assist in providing problem resolutions. All pertinent data should be entered into StorageTek's PINNACLE problem management system. Should the Level 2 Support be unable to resolve a problem, either because of lack of expertise (after consulting other Level 2 Support or StorageTek Level 3 Support personnel), exhausted troubleshooting knowledge, or expiration of the allotted Level 2 Support resolution time, the Level 2 Support personnel will escalate the problem to StorageTek Level 3 Support personnel pursuant to the escalation matrix on Schedule 2. Level 2 Support will continue to provide information to StorageTek Level 3 Support in order to accomplish resolution of the problem. Level 1 Support and/or Level 2 Support shall engage and direct on-site service activities performed by the End-User or service representatives in their attempts to resolve or remedy the reported problem. This will include, but will not be limited to, the replacement of Co-branded Products with Spare Parts or application of Co-branded Product firmware or software releases and versions. 6.3 "StorageTek Level 3 Support" is the first point of contact for technical issues between SSI Level 3 Support and StorageTek Level 3 Support, with primary contact via PINNACLE or by telephone. StorageTek will designate support specialists to serve as the highest level of problem resolution capability, with the capability of understanding the design of the Co-branded Products and the operating environment to be able to determine defect or problem-related Co-branded Product or system operability. Prior to escalating to SSI Level 3 Support, it is expected that StorageTek shall provide all relevant error log and system information through the PINNACLE system, which may include (but shall not be limited to): - Log files from Co-branded Product, host system or operating environment - Names and firmware revisions of hardware equipment - Firmware revisions or levels - Other output from devices or software in the configuration - Such additional information from PINNACLE as may be identified and reasonably requested from time to time by SSI 6.4 "SSI Level 3 Support" SSI Level 3 Support is expected to provide new fixes and workarounds, replication for complex problems, resolution of problems through generation of formal fixes and assistance requiring knowledge of SSI Level 3 Support personnel of Co-branded Product source code. SSI Level 3 Support will be provided by SSI technically competent personnel. In any instance where StorageTek Level 3 Support has verified that, with respect to a problem involving a Co-branded Product, the applicable components or system complies with specifications and requirements set forth in the SSI Certified Compatible List, StorageTek Level 3 Support will escalate the problem to SSI Level 3 Support pursuant to the escalation matrix on Schedule 2. SSI or its Subsidiaries will be responsible for resolution of the problem, and will utilize commercially reasonable efforts to resolve such problem. StorageTek and its Subsidiaries will reasonably cooperate with SSI and its Subsidiaries to provide such additional information and/or documentation as SSI or its Subsidiaries may deem necessary or request, and, at SSI's or its Subsidiaries' request, StorageTek will permit SSI or its Subsidiaries to contact directly End Users if further information may be needed. In consideration for providing SSI Level 3 Support to StorageTek, StorageTek will pay to SSI the applicable amounts set forth on Schedule 2 to this Agreement. Assigned SSI Level 3 Support technically competent personnel can be contacted via PINNACLE or email to an established "support" alias, or by calling SSI's support number at (800) 705-2375 (for StorageTek's and its Subsidiaries' use only and not that of Distributors or End Users).

PRODUCT SERVICE PLAN. StorageTek shall prepare a Co-branded Product service plan (the "PRODUCT SERVICE PLAN") for each Co-Branded Product that defines the service delivery and support philosophy, techniques, spares, tools, product requirements, and the support infrastructure necessary to install, implement, maintain, and support the End User in achieving the expected level of product function and performance. The Product Service Plan is intended for use within StorageTek and its Subsidiaries, and by other organizations outside of StorageTek who have entered into a contract or agreement with StorageTek for the purpose of distribution, integration, installation, implementation, maintenance, service or support of a Co-branded Product. The Product Service Plan will be used by StorageTek and SSI as the standard of performance to measure achievement of product and service delivery goals for the Co-branded Products. SSI will, in SSI's reasonable discretion, provide StorageTek with such information as is then available with respect to a configuration or system to assist StorageTek in preparing a Product Services Plan for the Co-branded Products. 11.
