Webinar to Highlight IBM's AIX System and Vision Solutions' Software

Disaster Recovery and Data Replication for AIX Has Never Been So Fast, Easy -- and Affordable

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - December 17, 2007) - Vision Solutions, the leading high availability (HA) and disaster recovery solutions provider in the IBM System i and System p markets, is hosting an upcoming webinar on the benefits of AIX and Vision Solutions' supporting software for companies of all sizes. The informative live Disaster Recovery for AIX webcast is cosponsored by IBM and will be held on Tuesday, January 8 at 10 a.m. CST.

"AIX, IBM's UNIX operating system, in combination with IBM's virtualization offerings, allows companies to consolidate workloads on fewer servers, increasing efficiency and conserving energy," says IBM's VP of Worldwide Marketing and Strategy, Power Systems, Scott Handy. "AIX delivers high levels of security, integration, flexibility and performance, essential for meeting the demands of today's IT environments. AIX 6 recently completed a highly successful open beta program and is now available to customers."

IBM's Scott Handy is the lead speaker for the event and web seminar attendees will learn to:

--  Upgrade to Power 6 the easy way
--  Increase the expandability and profitability of your server
--  Implement a comprehensive Disaster Recovery and Data Replication Plan
    with minimum investment and maintenance
--  Recover large amounts of data in only minutes
--  Replicate your data to a remote location without downtime
--  Ensure Business Continuity for your customers, partners and employees
    

John Gay, senior solutions architect for Vision Solutions, will also speak. "In addition to highlighting challenges in today's dynamic markets," says John, "this event will provide examples of how customers are using AIX for continuous data protection (CDP)."

CDP enables you to reverse data corruption in a fraction of the time and labor required for recovery from tape. It doesn't require planned downtime for backups and recovers data instantly at the push of a button. Whether as a standalone solution or integrated into an HA solution, CDP provides the easiest, most effective protection against the loss of critical data.

"This is a unique opportunity to learn how Vision-IBM solutions protect and enhance corporate systems," says Vision's SVP of Worldwide Marketing, Ed Vesely. "In today's 24/7 environment, there are ever-growing segments of the market in need of such offerings."

IBM's AIX operating system provides enterprise-class IT infrastructure for thousands of clients around the world. AIX V6 includes significant new capabilities for virtualization, security enhancements, availability features and manageability.
