Marathon's everRun 2G High Availability Software Selected Among Top Technology Products, Services, Vendors, Individuals for 2009

LITTLETON, MA--(Marketwire - November 10, 2009) - Marathon Technologies, the award-winning provider of fault-tolerant, high availability software for physical and virtual servers, today announced that it has been selected as a winner of the Tech Awards Circle, with everRun 2G taking Bronze in the "Best Midrange Software" category. Winners were selected by an independent circle of publication reviewers and journalists from nominations based on a broad range of achievements -- from product and technology innovations to talented executive leadership and engineering innovators.

Tech Awards Circle celebrates the products, services, vendors and individuals making a difference in the industry today. The winners represent a broad range of achievements, from hardware to software to services in consumer/SOHO, SMB, midrange, and enterprise markets. Gold, silver and bronze awards were given out in each category.

"Despite overwhelmingly strong competition, everRun 2G exhibited true industry excellence to be recognized among the top of the Tech Awards Circle," said Kevin Anderson, awards program coordinator. "Our judges were pleased at the level of submissions from all the vendors entering this year's competition, so to be named a winner of this prestigious award is a testament to the quality and innovation unrivaled in the high tech community. We wish Marathon continued success and look forward to them defending their title during the next awards period."

"everRun 2G was designed to help companies of all sizes deliver an 'Always On' infrastructure -- affordably," said Jim Welch, president and CEO of Marathon Technologies. "Its unique combination of reliability, simplicity and value are why everRun has won 15 industry awards world-wide in the last two years."

everRun 2G, the successor to Marathon's widely deployed everRun HA and everRun FT, is the most reliable high availability software for Windows Server environments. everRun 2G's automatic protection is designed to benefit customers in the following ways:

--  Eliminates costs, complexity, risks normally associated with high
    availability software

    availability with resources and budget

    availability to more applications, locations and users

About Tech Awards Circle

Tech Awards Circle was established this year to truly honor the 'best of the best' in technology. Tech Awards Circle is not affiliated with an analyst firm or a media company, both of which are directly supported by tech vendors through consulting relationships or advertising sales, so it is uniquely unbiased and immune to conflicts of interest. Entries are judged by an independent circle of journalists, including product reviewers, each with at least a decade of experience covering technology from consumer electronics to enterprise-class computing. To prevent these judges from being unduly influenced by vendors, they have agreed to remain anonymous. For more information or to be added to the mailing list please visit
