Entisys Solutions and Agile360 Join Forces to Become the West Coast's Premier Consulting Firm for Data Center Modernization

Union Combines Two of the Industry's Leading Integrators of Citrix® and VMware®; Leverages a Nationally Recognized Talent Pool of More Than 45 Technical and Sales Consultants With Expertise in Mid-Tier and Enterprise-Class Environments

CONCORD, CA and IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - January 10, 2008) - Entisys Solutions, Inc., Northern California's #1 provider of enterprise virtualization and access solutions and Agile360, Inc. Southern California's #1 data center virtualization consulting and engineering firm, today announced that the two companies have joined forces to become the western region's premier consulting firm for data center modernization using virtualization, access and advanced infrastructure, in combination with other proven methodologies.

"Our convergence with Agile360 enables us to combine the assets of two equally talented organizations, giving us the power to provide an even larger scope of services and resources to our clients within a wider geography," said Mike Strohl, President, Entisys Solutions, Inc. "While both companies offer unmatched levels of expertise in virtualization, access and advanced infrastructure, it is the synergies created by our technology best practices and vertical diversity that will ultimately strengthen us as an organization."

Entisys Solutions was founded in 1988 as a computer and software training center. Today, Entisys Solutions specializes in enterprise virtualization solutions, working in partnership with organizations such as Citrix, Microsoft, and VMware to provide consulting and engineering services to mid-tier and enterprise organizations and government agencies. In 2006, Entisys Solutions became the first consulting firm in Northern California, and one of the select few around the globe, to become a VMware Premier Enterprise Partner. That same year, the company was also named VMware Market Maker - Americas Region. Among its many recognitions throughout the years, in 2007, Entisys earned the distinction of top North American Reseller Partner for the Citrix Application Networking Group (ANG).

Founded in August 2001, Agile360's success can be attributed to the strength of the company's business partnerships and broad-based expertise in the virtualization of data center infrastructure. In 2007, the company ranked #29 on CMP Channel's CRN list of "2007 Fast Growth 100 Solution Providers." In 2006, Agile360 was named by Inc. magazine as one of the fastest growing, privately held companies in the United States, ranking 244th on the Inc. 500. The company has also been awarded runner-up for Citrix Solution Provider of the Year in North America (2006) and also became the first VMware Market Maker - Americas Region (2005).

"It is only through the hard work and dedication of our employees that Agile360 has been able to garner such an outstanding reputation among our vendor partners, clients and the industry as a whole," said Kevin Kelly, President, Agile360. "We are very pleased to be able to combine our organization with Entisys Solutions, whose reputation and practices are closely entwined with ours. We look forward to the growth that this union promises for our business as well as the accumulated benefits that our clients will receive as a result of streamlining our best practices and offerings."

Entisys Solutions and Agile360 will continue business as usual under their existing names. Mike Strohl, President of Entisys Solutions, will become president of the collective operations. The combined company will have more than 30 consultants, 15 sales personnel, four corporate offices, and will be the top Citrix and VMware partner in the western region of the United States.

Among the key vertical industries that will be served by the new organization are biotechnology, government, finance, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, entertainment and high tech.
