RELDATA Announces Reseller Agreement With PC Connection

RELDATA Unified Storage Systems Address Needs of Mid-Market Customers

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - November 16, 2009) - RELDATA, Inc. (www.reldata.com), the leading provider of software-centric unified storage solutions, today announced a strategic reseller agreement with PC Connection. Through this agreement, PC Connection is now able to offer RELDATA's 9240i, a feature-rich, software-centric unified storage system that consolidates storage area networks (SAN) and network-attached storage (NAS), allowing organizations to consolidate, virtualize and protect application data for multi-vendor and multi-site storage environments from a single management interface. The reseller has already sold its first RELDATA storage system and built an impressive $1 million pipeline for the products.

"Our partnership with PC Connection validates mid-market customer needs for simplified management and improved utilization of storage infrastructures in virtualized private cloud computing environments," said Peter Cmaylo, senior vice president of worldwide sales for RELDATA. "Our solution's value lies in the fact that it complements and can work with other storage systems that have already been deployed. RELDATA and its customers are thrilled to be working with a world-class company like PC Connection that has such significant expertise and leadership in addressing the storage technology needs of today's businesses."

RELDATA's 9240i unified storage system, powered by the RELvos 2.4 operating system, provides consolidation of NAS and SAN while virtualizing industry standard SAS, Fibre Channel and iSCSI storage resources. RELvos provisions block data and file storage services on application requirements. Using RELvos' modular architecture, customers can: rapidly architect multiple, scalable shared storage pools for on-demand, IP SAN, NAS and multi-vendor platforms; seamlessly expand storage capacity; and consolidate underused storage assets.

The 9240i is offered with RELDATA's exclusive "Save as You Grow" pricing model, competitively designed to provide customers with a cost-effective, long-term growth strategy. Software is licensed at the system level by feature, with no price increases based on capacity. The 9240i system's pricing requires no minimum or fixed bundles. This allows customers to grow virtual clouds with the freedom to pay only for what they need.
