Mainline to Distribute InMage Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Solution

Customers to Benefit From Software That Delivers Local and Remote Replication With Continuous Data Protection

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - January 8, 2008) - InMage Systems, Inc.®,, the leading provider of business continuity and disaster recovery software, and Mainline Information Systems®,, a leading IBM Premier Business Partner, today announced they have signed a strategic agreement to bring InMage's flagship DR-Scout™ to Mainline's customers. The channel partnership addresses mid-sized and enterprise customer demand for scalable, heterogeneous disaster recovery solutions.

"Many factors in today's business environment are driving the need for products like DR-Scout, stemming from rapid data growth, shrinking backup windows and regulatory compliance pressures," said Bill Colestock, Vice President of Mainline's Storage Business Unit. "We are pleased to continue in the tradition of providing our customers with pioneering technologies like DR-Scout that protect information assets and maximize business productivity while decreasing total cost of ownership."

"Our partnership with Mainline, one of IBM's top solutions providers, and the introduction of the InMage solution to their customers, validates the need for DR-Scout's heterogeneous disaster recovery capabilities in today's market," said Chris Stack, Director of North American Channel Sales for InMage. "By leveraging our innovative products and Mainline's highly experienced team, mid-tier and enterprise customers can benefit from superior disaster recovery, operational recovery and 24x7 application/data availability."

Utilizing true continuous data protection, DR-Scout offers an integrated solution for disaster recovery and continuous local backup. In the event of a disruption or disaster, applications can be failed over and back with the click of a button. Customers can recover their data in seconds or minutes with DR-Scout versus old processes that would take hours or days. This heterogeneous, automated solution is easier to use and more flexible than replication/snapshot solutions, and is more efficient at data recovery than VTL or DeDupe technologies.
