Egenera Signs Reseller Agreement With Marcum Technology

Egenera Expands HP VAR Network and New York Metro Area Presence; Marcum Strengthens Business Continuity Portfolio

BOXBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwire - Aug 1, 2011) - Egenera, the only provider of open converged infrastructure management software, announced today that the company has entered into a reseller agreement with Marcum Technology, a consulting and systems integration firm specializing in virtualization, storage, business continuity and information security solutions. The partnership increases Egenera's network of HP value-added resellers (VAR) and provides broader channel penetration into the Tri-State area and eastern Pennsylvania, areas dominated by the data intensive financial services, insurance and pharmaceutical industries. Marcum Technology is part of Marcum LLP, one of the largest independent public accounting and advisory services firms in the nation. Egenera and Marcum Technology are HP Preferred Partners. Egenera is also a member of HP AllianceONE, a comprehensive partner program focused on HP's Converged Infrastructure strategy.

"Marcum Technology is a valued addition to our family of partners. Our respective sales and support organizations are aligned and we have hit the ground running," said Jim Bandanza, Chief Operating Officer, Egenera. "Egenera PAN Manager plays to Marcum's strengths in delivering state of the art business continuity and data center management solutions. And Marcum's agility, expertise and commitment to providing technology choice to its clients are qualities Egenera values and shares."

"Egenera PAN Manager Software is an excellent complement to the portfolio of technologies we deliver and bolsters Marcum's virtualization and business continuity practices," said Gary Doria, Director of Sales, Marcum Technology. "PAN Manager has several advantages over competitors and benefits to our clients: unique, automated one-click high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR) capabilities for both virtual and physical servers; it is the only converged infrastructure solution with multi-platform support to protect client technology investments, and the only one with more than a decade of proven performance in enterprise data centers across the globe; and it rounds out Marcum's robust virtualization practice by allowing us to rapidly extend the cost-savings and agility benefits of converged infrastructure management to our clients. Managing both virtual and physical servers from the same user interface, consolidating infrastructure, and ensuring business continuity are top priorities for our clients."

Doria added that "HP constitutes a significant portion of Marcum's revenue, so Egenera's HP AllianceONE partnership and Converged Infrastructure Ready certification were very influential in our decision to partner. We are particularly enthusiastic about Egenera PAN Manager for HP BladeSystem which the company developed in collaboration with HP. Given that HP has 55 percent of the blade server market, the solution has tremendous potential."
