Dartware Launches the InterMapper Appliance

Appliance Simplifies the Deployment of Network Management Program

HANOVER, NH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 19, 2005 -- Dartware, LLC, a trailblazer in the development of graphical and intuitive real-time network monitoring tools, announces the immediate availability of the InterMapper Appliance™ -- a small but powerful computer that comes with the InterMapper networking software pre-installed for simple deployment.

The InterMapper Appliance includes the following:

--  An Apple Mac mini, 1.25 GHz with a gigabyte of RAM and MacOS X 10.4
    ("Tiger"). Because it's physically small, it is easy to install in nearly
    any network environment. Its powerful processor lets it monitor thousands
    of devices.
    
--  A pre-installed, unlimited-device license of InterMapper. It uses
    pings, SNMP, and synthetic transactions to monitor the network
    infrastructure (routers, switches, and WAN circuits), servers (web, mail,
    radius, ldap, etc.) and most other networked devices.
    
--  A separate InterMapper Remote license so the network manager can see
    what's happening from a remote location.
    
--  A twelve-month maintenance contract for the software
    
"The InterMapper Appliance is perfect for my clients," says Charlie Vamman of My Computer Consultant. "They can simply install this one product and have it up and running without a lot of frustration."

"With the new InterMapper Appliance, my clients can have a full time Network Administrator, without the cost of a full time network admin, keeping their network running and up 100% of the time," adds James Dennis, an Apple Consultant Network member.

The InterMapper Appliance is $3,295 and is available now. It will monitor an unlimited number of devices, and includes a copy of the InterMapper Remote software for installation on another computer.
